Naughty, Naughty Ryan

Ryan cutting a dashing figure

Well, Well, Well, the naughty married international footballer who allegedly  had an affair with Imogen Thomas , is the one and only Manchester United play Ryan Giggs. No-one in the UK was permitted to say his name because he had effected a Super Injunction, but it was the worst kept secret.

Now when I heard that a Super Injunction had been effected, I thought, game over we will never know. But as Ryan found out the hard way this wasn’t the case.

The injunction could only be enforced in the UK, so the international newspapers  had a field day, and were citing his name like there was no tomorrow.  Moreover, Twitter jumped on the bandwagon, rife with jokes like;

Imogen Thomas is starting a singing career, she will be doing giggs in Manchester.

We have all seen Imogen in the papers, on TV  with a face like a smacked ar*e because of the gagging order. Well you can sigh with relief now Imogen and remove that gag, thanks to Liberal Democrat John Hemming who cited Parliamentary privilege for citing Ryan’s name.

Am not here to cast any stones, am just happy to have a story to pop in my Naughty, Naughty category. What I will say is this, those Super Injunctions are a bloody waste of money 🙂

Wonder what attracted him to  Imogen . . .  🙂

Another Film Remake.

The 70's Sweeney duo John Thaw and Dennis Waterman

Yes ladies and gentleman there is going to be a film remake of  the British seventies TV Series The Sweeney. I bet it was before the time of some of you readers.  I can vaguely remember it, as I was about ten years old.

What I do remember is Detective Inspector Regan (played by the late great actor John Thaw) was one mean son of a gun and  rightly so too. None of this abiding by red tape from my man when you have flouted the laws of the land. You knew about it when you had the no – nonsense a*rse kicking Regan on your case.

Normally, I yawn, when I hear  of  remakes, since more often than not, the actors, actresses  cast in these iconic roles are pale comparisons to the originals.

Jude Law in Alfie was no match for Michael Caines depiction, and most recently Russell Brand as Dudley Moores, Arthur. What was that all about? I have not watched the latter but am canny enough to know it wouldn’t work.

Ray Winstone is set to play Regan , and I have to say, I think it is genius casting.

I couldn’t think of anyone better to play the role. He looks the part and we all know the Sexy Beast actor is more than capable of  carrying it off.  Ray had misgivings about playing the role, but after reading the script he was impressed. Well it’s a thumbs up for me.

Incidently, he did have a small role in the Sweeney as a teen.

See this little clip of him chatting about the forthcoming remake ( just click on the relevant icon to fill your screen)

In the meantime, I shall leave you with the 1970’s Sweeney opening theme. The music score is so iconic,  you think only of the Sweeney when you hear it.

Adult Children – Urgh

Suri Cruise sporting a pair of heels.

I may be old fashioned but I hate all this treating children like adults, letting them rule the roost and dictate. Let children be children.

I know it’s each to their own and it would be a boring old world if we were all the same, but I really cringe at children  (and am talking five year olds) sporting lipstick and high heels. If it is playtime at home, then fine but out in the town centre, shudders.

Am one of those women who hate the child beauty pageants where children are caked in make-up. To me they look like demonic dolls. I don’t mind the pageants perse, but children caked in makeup! No! No! No! in my books.

Red lippy!

Even those that don’t look like demonic dolls, I don’t see the appeal of making them look about twenty years older – vile in my humble opinion.


Anyway enough of my moaning. Have you all enjoyed the Royal Wedding or have you been bored to F*?

Have a good week-end y’all.

Naughty, Naughty Virgin

This letter of complaint has been doing it’s rounds for a couple of years, but it still makes me chuckle. Apparently Sir Richard Branson  telephoned the author to thank him for his “constructive if tongue-in-cheek” email.

REF: Mumbai to Heathrow 7th December 2008

I love the Virgin brand, I really do which is why I continue to use it despite a series of unfortunate incidents over the last few years. This latest incident takes the biscuit.

Ironically, by the end of the flight I would have gladly paid over a thousand rupees for a single biscuit following the culinary journey of hell I was subjected to at thehands of your corporation.

Look at this Richard. Just look at it:

I imagine the same questions are racing through your brilliant mind as were racing through mine on that fateful day. What is this? Why have I been given it? What have I done to deserve this? And, which one is the starter, which one is the dessert?

You don’t get to a position like yours Richard with anything less than a generous sprinkling of observational power so I KNOW you will have spotted the tomato next to the two yellow shafts of sponge on the left. Yes, it’s next to the sponge shaft without the green paste. That’s got to be the clue hasn’t it. No sane person would serve a desert with a tomato would they. Well answer me this Richard, what sort of animal would serve a dessert with peas in:

I know it looks like a baaji but it’s in custard Richard, custard.

The letter continues – click on link. Images are at the top.

Don’t view on an empty stomach, excuse the pun.

Clash of The Titans

It has been reported in the press that Mel Gibson has dethrowned Christian Bale as the ranting King of Hollywood.

Remember Christians rant on the Terminator set.

Well, listen to the Titans  go at it  hammer and tongue in the following hilarious meltdown video. Ding, ding, ding.

Jeez, where is Anger Management when you need them.

Naughty, Naughty Prime Minister

As all the UK’ers will be aware,  our Prime Minister made a boo, boo.  Forgetting he still had his microphone on, he referred to  a pensioner as a  bigot.   Only a week before the election too. Oops. Provided me with no end of entertainment and brightened up an otherwise  dull political campaign.

The second video is his weak response when the tape was played back to him on my favourite radio show Jeremy Vine.

Naughty Vernon’s Apology

The once squeaky clean Vernon Kay had recently been caught out, sending saucy texts to a string of women – see my post “Naughty Naughty Vernon”  Before presenting his Radio 1 show, he made the following apology;

“Now this week you may or may not be aware that because of some stupid and foolish decisions I’ve made I’ve disappointed and let down a lot of people. To my family and everybody I’m very sorry. Right, let’s crack on!”

What a heartfelt apology.  Now if I was his wife listening to that so-called apology, his clothes would be in a black bin bag, quicker than he could send a text. Ooo but I do I love a bit of scandal.

I wonder if one of the big mobile company’s will sign him up to advertise their “text messaging” packages.
