TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo As Mother Dates Child Molester

PA 14539096 TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo As Mother Dates Child Molester

TLC has called time on the Roald Dahl docu-drama Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo because reports suggest child star Honey Boo-Boo’s mother, one “Mama June” , is currently dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.

This charming man served 10 years jail time for having forced oral sex on an 8-year-old girl.

TLC thought broadcasting the show featuring mum’s new lover would be a step too far. After all, the Boo Boo clan are paid, and some of TLC’s cash might end up in McDaniel’s pockets.

Big Brother: ‘Lesbian ‘ Kisser White Dee Becomes The Birmingham Resident’

Daily Star 8 9 2014 Big Brother: Lesbian  Kisser White Dee Becomes The Birmingham Resident

 

WHEN the Daily Star declares “White Dee In BB 3-Way Romp”, you don’t know whether to take a peek or look away.

Deirdre Kelly — “White Dee” — is the break-out star of Benefits Street, TV’s fly-in-the-biscuit tin look at the welfare state through the eyes of UKIP recruiters for whom benefits are the disease not the symptom of poverty, poor education and unemployment.

Dee was the Street’s sedatory matriach and protector of the weak. She’s moved from James Turner Street, Birmingham, to a Z-list holding bay in leafy Elstree, where she’s having a Big Brother threesome.

Given that the Star is owned by Richard Desmond, who also publishes hardcore porn, the “romp” holds much promise for sticky-fingered readers.

The Conformity Of Sports Punditry: Gary Neville’s Sigh Sports And Sean Dyche’s Market Leaders

Sigh1 The Conformity Of Sports Punditry: Gary Nevilles Sigh Sports And Sean Dyches Market Leaders

 

THE football world, notwithstanding the scrutiny of the millions of people who obsessively follow its comings and goings, remains a stubbornly closed community. One consequence of this, as I have noted before, is that it is an extremely conformist environment in which new fashions spread almost instantaneously, and adherence is almost total.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in the language of the game. Words and phrases spread like wildfire and are used automatically by everyone within days Sometimes they spread outwards and infect society at large.

This month’s phenomenon is not a word but a sound – a sigh, to be precise.

jim white sky Transfer Deadline Day Is Forever Tied To Jim The Clock IS Ticking White

 

FOR those of you not au fait with Sky Sport News, Jim White is the man who “understands” from “Sky sources” that he has hours of airtime to fill until a team owned by a billionaire actually buys a footballer from another team owned by a billionaire.

Once upon a time White was just another pundit with big black cans on his ears and a windproofed ‘SKY SPORTS’ branded microphone in his paws.

James Alexander Gordon and The Poetry of The Pools

James Alexander Gordon and the poetry of the pools

BBC announcer James Alexander Gordon, whose voice was synonymous with the football results, has died at the age of 78.

 
Results1 James Alexander Gordon and The Poetry of The Pools

 

Although he started reading the results in 1973, in the heyday of flares and platform boots, he seemed to personify an earlier short-back-and-sides era, when the ‘wireless’ was still the main conduit for live football. A time when teams played at the same time – 3pm on a Saturday – allowing for a comprehensive results service at 5 O’Clock, heralded by Sports Report’s stirring theme tune, ‘Out of the Blue’ played by the Central RAF band (and here by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra)…

 

 

These were not any old results, like those garbled and sometimes unreliable missives that sprang from the manic teleprinter…

 

No, these were the CLASSIFIED football results, and their significance – aside from the footballing issues resting upon them – was that the football pools relied upon them.

The pools were the national lottery of their day, able to change people’s lives at a stroke. Dreams could come true, but so could nightmares, as in the case of Viv ‘Spend, Spend, Spend’ Nicholson…

 

Results2 James Alexander Gordon and The Poetry of The Pools
Results3 James Alexander Gordon and The Poetry of The Pools

 

Up and down the land, people would sit glued to the radio, in a quasi-religious shared national experience (in the days before people spoke in such terms), checking their pools coupons to see if they had predicted the requisite results to hit the jackpot. Gordon said he remembered complaints that results could be difficult to follow, and he is credited with innovating a form of inflection that indicated the outcome of the game, and made it easier to follow while studying a piece of paper full of tiny boxes.

Here he talks about his distinctive style…

 

 

But even those not interested in gambling – or football itself, for that matter – couldn’t fail to feel some affection for the litany of names, which ranged from the legendary to the most obscure creatures lurking in the depths of the lower English and Scottish leagues. Its soothing effect is rivaled only by the poetry of the shipping forecast.

Here the mellifluous Charlotte Green, successor to Gordon, applies her technique to the sacred text…

 

 

And here Mark E Smith tries his hand at it. Radio announcing’s loss was music’s gain, although listening to the auld curmudgeon’s idiosyncratic efforts, some of us live in hope that he will return to this fertile field in the not-too-distant future…

Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year (Channel 4)

With Eurovision been and gone, Britain’s Got Talent over and X Factor still over the horizon, I’ve been jonesing for a televised competition to root for. Alright, so there was The World Cup and The Commonwealth Games but neither of can compare with…Shed of The Year. Presented by the ever-enthusiastic George Clarke as part of his Amazing Spaces series, the competition throws light on a hidden sub-species in British life – the Sheddies.
