British comedian Stephen Fry entertained airport staff during a recent trip aboard, by paying homage to his hero Irish poet Oscar Wilde.

When Fry - who played the poet in 1997 biopic WILDE - was asked by security staff at HEATHROW airport, London if he had anything to declare, he quoted Wilde, quipping, "Nothing, except my genius."

And when they quizzed him if he had any sharp objects, the 44-year-old replied, "Only my tongue, sir."
