is on the cover of half a dozen papers this morning?
hasn't jumped on the bandwagon yet?
Metro reports that he's "devastated"
So anything remotely 'scandalous' is topical. And it is mildly, mildly scandalous. The BBC asks people to vote every week for who THEY want to win, and the BBC makes a ton of money out of it. Then the judges on the show have apparently kicked off about him doing so well on there, saying it "makes a mockery of the show", or something, and have basically guilt tripped him into quitting
So the angle the papers are running with is that the BBC has been fine to take everyone's money... but still fuck them off at the end of it regardless
There's obviously far more important things going on, but in the wake of Ross/Brand, it's probably just, JUST, newsworthy
also: why does BBC news report on Strictly Come Dancing every single week? is it some kind of huge cultural event that has just passed me by?
And that's because BBC Breakfast news is a fucking abomination that I remain worried to find that people actually watch.
It helps get me out of the house that little bit quicker.
that's reason enough to watch it
Get Radio 4 on. If Jim Naughtie's voice doesn't do it for you, nothing ever will.
I thought you were with me on the appreciation of the lovely ladies, especially the one with the dark hair who looks a little bit like Kirsty Allsop
She was buying bras (probably lefty-bras)
Of bras. Generally just bras, hopefully filled with boobs.
it has the great Australian guy who does the news about the markets and SHOUTS REALLY UNNECESSARILY
Unless you're thinking of someone else obvz, but he does the news about the markets and shouts a lot.
but what is any better, huh? HUH?
but I find myself strangely compelled to watch it sometimes
foul mouthed swine!
THE ICE PELICAN
Slap it on the bing-bong
Lick it like a ding-dong
Nunchucks on the fly
Corny beef on rye
Watch my lizard cry
Most relieved I've been all week: her and her new husbands names not being on that 'list'.
despite the fact that I was born in Clapton and brought up in Cirencester, both further south than his Bedfordshire homeland. I think it's fair to say geography isn't his strong point.
"My boyhood in the countryside"
"HERE BE DRAGONS"
when we went to Plymouth versus Charlton. We responded with (to the Adams Family theme tune) :
'YOUR SISTER IS YOUR BROTHER
YOUR FATHER IS YOUR MOTHER
YOU'RE FUCKING ONE ANOTHER
THE PLYMOUTH FAMILY'
We used to sing it at uni to the rugby club captain who was a bit "special"
who would buy a paper because John Sargeant is on the cover, but not if they featured a REAL story, that actually matters...
is WAY WAY more important then someone dying. Get your priorities straight!
cos i can't take any stories about that country seriously. Everytime i see DR Congo written down, all I can think is "Doctor Congo"
and Reg Varney from On The Buses
it'll just be a different one
Well, the way everyones banging on about it, you'd have thought he'd popped it or something.
READ ALL ABOUT IT
STOP PICKING ON ME
Or is that white men? I get 'fats' and 'whites' confused sometimes.
Ice Cube is white.
Which column would you like to go under? Are you fatter or whiter?
to the BBC. Isn't somebody supposed to have resigned by now?
they debated it on the jeremy vine show today, for the second day running. nightmare.
