I was watching Jools Holland recently and one of his guests was the Tallest Man on Earth. I was rather intrigued by this, because really to me he didn't seem that tall, although the producers were very careful not to show him standing next to anyone, so that a fair height comparison could be created.
I've been doing a bit of travelling lately and was surprised to discover how many brass-like statues there are around the World of Ken Dodd. I suspected that it wasn't just me that it was surprising, so I got out my Kodak insta-matic and my last magi-cube and set about photographing these wonders of the modern World.
Michty! Nae sooner hae the words left ma mooth an' thon Administrator laddie has posted ma auld advertisements. An' braw they look tae! Ye widnae credit it that these actually appeared in print in days gone by! Ane o' 'em I cut oot the Sunday Post masel'!
I'm back folks, rebooted for the new decade. This time don't expect any sympathy from me. I'm bad like Michael Jackson and I've got a story to tell. Read the full story here now.
This is something I've been wrestling with for a while now and I've decided enough is enough. It all happened a few weeks ago when I was going down Westoe Road on the bus, on my way to Gough's to get a new pair of hair tongs in a sun bleached cyan box that I had seen in the window a few days earlier.
Evening all. I was thumbing through a copy of the Shields (where?) Gazette the other day and thought you all might enjoy this pic from the 'On the Town' section. As I'm sure you'll all agree, it was a great Christmas do (even though I wasn't there, because I didn't know where it was) and this pic certainly sums it up.
I wanted to brighten your new year blues by setting a little quiz for you all. It's not as easy as you think putting on a quiz, but I think you'll agree it's well worth while.
It may (or may not) have come to your attention that I am a little more that lucky when it comes to the meat draw in the local club. So much so that I sometimes have more meat in my possession than I know what to do with.
Howdy folks, long time no hear. Sorry I've been missing from my favourite site for a while, but I've been away on my holidays. I spent the whole summer travelling around and enjoying the sun.
I wis thinkin' that whit's missin' frae this wee site is a regular cartoon spot...
Ochhhhh! Hi pop fans. I've been thinking for a while how I could make some sort of contribution to this site to give it more of a "high-brow" feel. I've been on the phone to my agent, the Banker and my old chum The Hairy Cornflake and they talked me into submitting a regular (here's hoping) in-depth interview with various high profile characters.
Inspired by Mike's blog 'Under the knife', I got to thinking that some celebrities have changed dramatically without any obvious surgery. So I thought it would be a good spin-off, to collect images that demonstrate how unkind the years can be.
No complaints...just high praise for the Big A on the recent improvements to my favourite site. The random image selector is vastly improved. As you all know I love a bearded lady so imagine, friends, my clashing coconuts when a bearded Posh popped up. What with that, and the picture of (a much improved) Lesley Ash this site is turning into a "totty-fest"! Well done and keep up the good work.
It seems to me that it's only a matter of time before a celebrity decides to wander into the world of plastic surgery. They seem to assume that even though (in the main) they look perfectly fine, a slight (or not so slight) facial (or otherwise) modification will make their life so much better.
I have to credit Mikey and Wile E. for giving me the idea of creating the School of political Correctness. The fact is that what was a perfectly acceptable thing to say a short time in the past is now taboo and has been replaced by a completely sterilized version.
