Robert Plant and some racing dude I couldn't care less about too...but Terry fuckung Pratchett is a knight. There's something very beautiful and completely absurd to how awesome that is.

As someone from the forum where I got the link from said:
" Ser Terry Pratchett.
It has a ring to it.
Although I am worried that he will do incredibly silly things like start walking around with a sword, or maybe appear somewhere in full plate mail.
I hope he will do incredibly silly things."

Why

I mean why. Are they trying to make up for not knighting Douglas Adams? Or masking their secret desire to knight Terry Gilliam?

Lovely.

I'm also amused to see Michael Sheen got a gong.  Well done Frost/Blair.

Simple answer: Because it's awesome.
