.....to his happiness, he has put it in the power of the weakest and most timorous malignity (Samuel Johnson1709-1784)
I don't have a water cooler in work, well I tell a lie, we do but there's arseholes working over beside it so I prefer to go out the back and stick me mouth under the down pipe. Anyway here's my somewhat repetitive Wednesday morning water cooler rant - our love as a society for celebrity and the murder we let the bastards away with.
Was looking at the papers today and am further intrigued about how the phrases "troubled", "hell raiser" or "delinquent" are used to just justify behaviour that for the rest of us would be see us arrested/jailed/run out of our parish or just dubbed knackers. Today around the office the curse of celebrity is being used to excuse Britney's sister for getting up the duff, Manchester United's players for an alleged rape at the Xmas party, the ongoing saga of Amy Winehouse or Pete Doherty, who's in the news today for turning up as arranged for a gig - what else would he be doing?
It's really getting on my tits, check out how many celebs come up when you Google christian names. Try Pete and Amy and see what's the first result to come up. Speaking of which, if any of you have Google toolbar start searching for Jamie Lynn Spears, some of the autocomplete results are very disturbing.
