Say you, say me

The queue at Tesco had a TV to entertain the punters. Sky News was on and they were showing a 'tribute' to Michael Jackson at fifty.

"He's done some terrible things to himself hasn't he?" said the old girl in front of me, talking to her husband.

"Well, he's got a screw loose", said ageing hubbie.

"Look at him though - he's unrecognisable isn't he?", said wife.

To be honest, she had a point. You'd be hard-pressed to recognise the man talking on TV as Michael Jackson.

Especially so, given that the man on the screen was Lionel Richie...

Reminds me of that newspaper story about Lionel Richie standing at the back of a crowded hotel lift, saying "hit the floor folks", and everyone dropping like stones holding their hands over their heads and shouting "please don't hurt us".

The poor guy only wanted someone to press the lift button for him.....

Hilarious. I don't know how to type the sound giggling makes, but that's what I'm doing.

If I had anything about me at all, I would have caught up with you weeks ago & we could have arranged a blogger meet up! Fancy going to the dogs without me!

But it's lovely catching up with you here. I'll try to pop in more often.

And also I need to blog myself.

Sod it...

VM, as Daryl would say, that calls for a rimshot!

Lane, Poor Lionel indeed. After the indignity of that blind girl modeling him too!

Swearing Mother a dit…

Travelling, I am waiting for the rest of Tina's story too. Let's go to the dogs at Perry Barr and refuse to take her with us unless she spills the beans about what happened next.......

Can't stand the suspense.
