The Friday Question: Trivial TV Star Information

by

One from Napoleon, sent to me last week:

With the welcome news that not only is Reg Varney alive, but he was also 92 last Friday (Happy Birthday, Reg), WWM wants to know what trivial facts YOU know about our most beloved TV stars.

Why do we ask? Because Reg wasn’t only the man behind the wheels of a London bus in the 60s, he was also the first man to use the first cash machine in these here British Isles.

So, what useless information on televisual superstars, past and present, do you have hidden away in that noggin of yours?

Well? COME ON!

Also… if you fancy reading about what TV’s ugliest personalities are like in the sack, you’d not do much better than clicking here

  1. george Says:

    My mum told Michelle Collins to fuck off once. No word of a lie.

  2. Swineshead Says:

    I asked Samantha Janus if her brother is called ‘Hugh’ once. It wasn’t amusing. She wasn’t amused. Oh, the shame.

  3. Who Says:

    I once saw Paul ‘Ted Bovis’ Shane and his missus trundling along Weymouth seafront – he was the end of pier turn that summer. I’m going back about 25 years – Hi de Hi had long died on it’s arse. If only I had grandchildren, I could pass these precious memories onto them.

  4. Swineshead Says:

    Aaah – Paul Shane is a comedy performer par excellence…. and I remember his fantastic singing ability with such gladness. He was the very definition of pub singer.

  5. piqued Says:

    A kilted Peter Duncan told me to fuck off after I told the bird he was chatting up I could see his clockweights

  6. Swineshead Says:

    This is turning into ‘what happened when I met a celebrity’…

    Let’s get back to the original question – trivial facts about TV celebrities.

    Not that I know any.

  7. piqued Says:

    I can confirm Peter Duncan has a little penis

    Happy now SH? HAPPY NOW YOU MADE ME SAY THAT?

  8. Dave Says:

    I was sick on the Wizard from Puddle Lane.

    Erm, as for a fact, Peter Cushing is dead. He was once alive.

  9. Swineshead Says:

    Piqued – that info should be reserved for that disgusting Fan Fiction site I mentioned above – perhaps you could submit it to them (I don’t know who they are)…

    Dave – that’s not very trivial. At least, not as far as Peter is/was concerned.

  10. Who Says:

    I dunno any trivial facts, so let’s have ‘what happened when I met a celebrity’ – I gots loads in the vault, LOADS.

    *puffs out chest*

  11. Swineshead Says:

    ‘ang on… who’s in charge here?

    Surely this question will encourage you all to go checking Wikipedia for uninteresting facts about celebrities?

  12. Dave Says:

    Bob Monkhouse used to beat his wife.

  13. Swineshead Says:

    Dave, that’s just a scurrilous rumour. You can’t go around saying that sort of thing.

    (Everyone beats their wives, it’s the coolest)

  14. Napoleon Says:

    I don’t know about Bob Monkhouse slapping his missus about, but I do know that both Peter Cushing and Roger Moore started out as cartoonists. There, it’s not that ‘ard.

  15. Who Says:

    Beggar my Neighbour sounds like it might have been Varney’s finest work.

    I WANT TO SEE IT

  17. Clarry Says:

    Did you know that Flea from RHCP and Cher are both 168cms tall?

  18. Napoleon Says:

    How big’s that in old money, Clarry?

  19. george Says:

    Nancy Cartwright (The voice of Bart Simpson) is a paid up scientologist; she donated about one million dollars (roughly her annual salary) to the cause. As are the two My Name is Earl protagonists. Phil Hartman, a cult figure who was the voice actor who provided Troy McClure’s voice was shot by his wife, a Simpsons episode was dedicated to him which remains one of the shows most blatant anti gun statements made yet. Billy West does Zap Brannegan’s voice in a tribute to his distinctive style; a part that was written for Hartman.

    Also, Craig Charles of Red Dwarf has a well documented history of crack addiction, he was caught smoking a crack pipe and ordering a taxi driver to go pick up lots of pornography. Kryten from Red Dwarf comes from Northampton, and probably hasn’t touched crack.

    Matt Le Blanc once starred in a porn film.

  20. Swineshead Says:

    Susan Kennedy off Neighbours has also starred in hardcore pornography*

    *this is possibly a figment of my imagination

  21. Dave Says:

    Ha ha. I’ve actually been in the cabbies taxi. He told us that anecdote without us asking, which is scarier than crack addiction when you think about it. Manchester!

  22. Clarry Says:

    NC – I’ve no idea. I work in inches but the stats were in cms. I think it’s quite short though….

    George – I’ve already stated the fact about Craig Charles in taxi doing crack and reading porn in a previous post. Old news George, old news!

  23. Matt Says:

    The Chuckle Brothers are not really brothers; Paul is really Barry’s dad.

  24. Swineshead Says:

    It’s 5’5″

    So smaller than average but not anything strange…

  25. Swineshead Says:

    Matt – that is clearly a lie.

    But one of them (I think it was Barry Chuckle) did ask a woman to perform sex upon his lap in in a layby.

  26. Dave Says:

    Didn’t the same Chuckle invite a little boy around to his house to, and then expose himself to the mother? Amazing stuff.

  27. Swineshead Says:

    I think it was the smaller Chuckle. The more withered one.

    He’s 168 cm tall.

  28. george Says:

    TV star John Leslie doesn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘consensual’.

  29. Dave Says:

    I like the episode where they are chased by a viking on a hillside in Wales. What a triumph.

  30. george Says:

    Alan Hansen’s face is actually made of pine.

  31. george Says:

    Scraping the barrel a bit, but an extra in an episode of Power Rangers, currently in prison for a double murder, tried to sever his penis with a razor blade.

  32. Dave Says:

    George, you must cease. I laughed at a client over the phone because of both, BOTH comments.

  33. george Says:

    One is true, one is not. (Try and guess which one is which)

  34. Swineshead Says:

    ‘I like the episode where they are chased by a viking on a hillside in Wales. What a triumph.’

    I can’t say I remember that particular episode of Chuckle Vision. Sounds good though. Can I borrow the DVD, Dave?

  35. Dave Says:

    I YouTube the fools, as well as classic beach-based gameshow ‘To Me, To You’.

  36. Napoleon Says:

    I didn’t know Phil Hartman was shot by his wife. That reminds me that the mighty Marvin Gaye was shot by his dad with the gun Marvin had given him for his birthday. Irony, etc.

    There’s also that weird one about Reg Presley off of The Troggs inventing a machine that clears fog from airport runways. It’s made him a bazillionaire, apparently.

  37. Clarry Says:

    Apparently Justin Timberlake likes to dip his Oreo cookies in milk for exactly 7 seconds.

  38. Napoleon Says:

    Cat Stevens has just won a libel action against a website that accused him of being a sexist bigot. The greedy sexist bigot.

  39. george Says:

    ‘There’s also that weird one about Reg Presley off of The Troggs inventing a machine that clears fog from airport runways. It’s made him a bazillionaire, apparently.’

    Heh, that’s quite strange. The mother of one of the Monkees (which started as a TV show, so counts) invented tipex.

  40. george Says:

    Chris Benoit murdered his son and his wife and then himself about a year back. Not trivial, but quite scary, he was my favourite wrestler once.

  41. Napoleon Says:

    Here’s some more facts for you:

    That’s not Chevy Chase singing on Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’ video. I know, it’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

    Believe it or not, Carly Simon has never been seen ‘Coming Around Again’, even though she must have to sing so knowledgably on the subject.

    Jimmy Nail’s a liar. He claims, on his song ‘Crocodile Shoes’, that they’re the only friends he has. Yet everyone knows that Barry, Dennis, Bomber, Wayne’s boy, Moxey and Neville are his mates as well.

  42. Swineshead Says:

    That’s definitely a lie about Carly Simon.

  43. george Says:

    Pavements are stationary, meaning they require little, if any, chasing. The girl singing that must be educated in such. Not that it matters anyway, as it’s a euphemism for bum sex.

  44. Who Says:

    Jimmy doesn’t always tell the fibs. In his smash hit, Big River, he sings ‘this is a Big River’. And it is.

    GENIUS

  45. Napoleon Says:

    How is that a lie about Carly Simon? The problem with you, Swineshead, is you love Carly so much you can’t see any faults. To me, she’s just the Kwik Save Kiki Dee.

  46. Swineshead Says:

    Even when recording that song (which took more than one session – Carly’s such a perfectionist) she came around again. The first time she went to the studio she was coming around for the first time. The second time she was coming around again.

    It’s not difficult to understand (if you’re willing to play the game).

    As for your Kiki comparison, you’re only embarassing yourself with that one.

  47. Napoleon Says:

    No I’m not.

    And any Carly fan worth their onions knows she did that song in one take. There was no need for her to go ‘Coming Around Again’.

    It’s also worth noting that, on finishing laying down the vocals (that’s an industry term you won’t have heard of because you’re an office drone) to ‘Nobody Does It Better’, a sound engineer said to Carly,

    “Nobody does it better than you, Carly … except Kiki Dee.”

    “I agree with you,” replied Carly, admitting defeat.

    With her tits out.

  48. Swineshead Says:

    Only Carly herself can confirm this information.

  49. Napoleon Says:

    Hang on, I’ll give her a ring …

    Yes, she confirms this.

  50. Swineshead Says:

    Balls – you never rang her. I just rang her and all she had to say on the matter was this:

    Me: When was it that you recorded (over the course of many takes) ‘Coming Around Again’ again?

    Carly: Yes! It did take many takes. It was when I signed with Arista Records. Coming Around Again was a worthy single and HBO made me a special with the same name. It was filmed in Menemsha on Martha’s Vineyard. You saw boats going by in the background. You heard seagulls. Oh joy. By the time the HBO special was made it was already 1986 and I have left out that the album produced four singles: The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of, Give Me All Night, All I Want Is You and Coming Around Again. This had all been predicted by a psychic. Even the names of the songs. He also predicted I would meet and marry a man with a high forehead who would be a business man and a poet. That was Jim Hart, who I met on a train. He would become my second husband. We got married in 1987.

    Me: Thanks Carly, you’re a really fucking good egg.

    Carly: Lend us a quid.

  51. Napoleon Says:

    Bear with me …

    “Hello? Is that Carly Simon?”
    “Yes.”
    “Hello, Carly, sorry to ring you again. Have you just received a call from a deranged short arse blathering on about your song ‘Coming Around Again’?”
    “Yes. I was so frightened, I just said a load of rubbish to get him off the phone. I think it was some nonsense about having to do more than one take for my song ‘Coming Around Again’.”
    “I see. So, your song ‘Coming Around Again’ only took you the one take?”
    “That’s right, yes. One take. No more.”
    “I’m glad we’ve got that cleared up once and for all.”
    “Hey, that’s OK. Oh, and while I remember – Kiki Dee does it better than me, Jimmy Nail’s a liar, and that’s not Chevy Chase singing on the video to Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’.”
    “Is that right? Interesting. Well, thanks for that, Carly.”
    “Anytime for you, my great, old, trusted, best friend. By the way, I’ve got my tits out.”
    “Lovely. Cheers, Carly.”
    “Byeeeee!”

    So there we are.

  52. Swineshead Says:

    Hold up:

    Me: Hello… Cheryl? Is that Cheryl Baker?

    Cheryl: Yep – it’s me. Strange you should call so soon after I’ve just put the phone down. Some drunken arsehole with a booming northern accent (who clearly had a big nose) rang me up thinking he was speaking to Carly Simon!

    Me: Well I never! What did you say….?

    Cheryl: I humoured him for a bit. I told him I had my tits out!

    Me: Blimey! You minx. By the way, Cheryl – I really enjoyed Eggs n’ Baker. They should’ve recommissioned that.

    Cheryl: Get fucked.

  53. Napoleon Says:

    Give us a minute …

    “Carly?”
    “Yes?”
    “It’s me again.”
    “Hello there you!”
    “Did I just ring you, Grammy award winning recording artist Carly Simon, or did I ring Cheryl Baker, bargain bucket ABBA wannabe and host of shit kid’s cooking show, Eggs ‘n’ Baker?”
    “You rang me.”
    “I thought I did, thanks for that, Carly.”
    “Hey, that’s alright. My tits are still out.”
    “Great, I’ll pop over to California and give ’em a rub for you.”
    “If you would. When it comes to rubbing my tits, nobody does it better than you, Napoleon.”
    “Why thank you.”
    “Baby, you’re the best.”
    “Cheers!”
    “Why d’ya have to be so goooooood?”
    “Tatty bye, Carly Simon.”
    “Byeeeeeeee!”

    Glad that’s been cleared up.

  54. Swineshead Says:

    You’re a liar. That never happened. Carly Simon’s currently sitting in front of me. With her tits out.

  55. Napoleon Says:

    I think you’ll find that’s Kathy Staff.

  56. Swineshead Says:

    Carly – sing me Let The River Run in your inimitable tones…

    Definitely her. Glorious.

    Looks like rain, I see. Just in time for the fucking weekend.

  57. Napoleon Says:

    Looks like? It’s been raining ‘ere since yesterday. It’s been like living inside tupperware for the past few days. Summer, my arse.

    What’s that, Carly?

    Yes, he is retarded.

  58. george Says:

    All that made me do several loud chuckles, and I’ve never even heard of Carli Simon.

  59. Badger Madge Says:

    I’ve got a juicy one about Giles off Buffy…

  60. Napoleon Says:

    You’ve never heard of Carly Simon, George? Surely you’ve heard the theme song to ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’? Or the theme song to ‘Working Girl’. Or ‘You’re So Vain’? Or the track that I’ve confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt only took her one take – ‘Coming Around Again’?

  61. george Says:

    Hmmm, maybe if I heard it on the radio.

    Exclusive TV trivial information; it’s been calculated that Zane Loe is at least four times as much as a twunt as Tim Westwood. This is based on me listening to his radio show for the last three nights and recording the amount of scars on my wrists.

  62. Swineshead Says:

    George – educate yourself immediately in the ways of Carly Simon.

    Don’t hold back BM…

  63. piqued Says:

    I bet you think this blog is about you…

    Apparently the original was written about Warren Beattie

  64. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Another bloody blog, Napoleon. Christ.

  65. Swineshead Says:

    What’re you on about, JQW?

  66. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Perry and his How The Good Look Naked

  67. Napoleon Says:

    That’s not one of mine, Wagonwheel. I have contributed to it, mind.

  68. Swineshead Says:

    You’ve made an assumption there, JQW. A rash assumption.

  69. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Well he clearly made the banner and images, they’ve got his grubby claws all over them. True, the writing isn’t quite his style. I’d say it’s the thing him and piqued thought they’d agree on by email yesterday.

  70. Badger Madge Says:

    Well… He and Jez Beadle have something in common (and not a penchant for practical jokes). That’s all I’m saying…

  71. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    At least it’s not a consumptive rash. But I’ve got one of them and all.

  72. Swineshead Says:

    Well he clearly made the banner and images

    Wrong.

    True, the writing isn’t quite his style.

    Some is, some isn’t as he pointed out to you.

    I’d say it’s the thing him and piqued thought they’d agree on by email yesterday.

    Wrong again.

    You fucking idiot.

  73. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Alright, alright, just because you didn’t get a credit when you clearly want one. You must be font-buddies then and have them same fonts.

  74. Dave Says:

    Danny De Vito is a tosser. Trivial fact.

  75. Dave Says:

    I’d like to see Perry draw some 40s 50s parody adverts. Do you do requests?

  76. Swineshead Says:

    JQW, all I’ll say is don’t go applying for a Private Investigator job when you finish at school, alright?

  77. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    What with private investigation not being quite the roaring trade it was in 1940s New York, that should be easy enough to avoid.

  78. Clarry Says:

    So who did write ‘How The Good Look Naked’? The bit about Pauline Quirk dun made me laff

  79. Swineshead Says:

    Some anonymous people did.
    Forward it to people if you like it.

    Anyone know any good TV show trivia?

  80. Dave Says:

    Emmerdale used to be called Emmerdale Farm years ago.

  81. Napoleon Says:

    Dave – Do I do requests? Why, yes. For money.

  82. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    That made me laugh, did that, Dave.

  83. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Here’s 50p. I’ll have a Mona Lisa with her baps out. Cheers.

  84. Napoleon Says:

    50p? Slightly below my hourly rate, JQW. 50p’ll get you a line. And not a coloured line, neither. A black and white … OH FUCK THE CARPENTERS ARE ON THE RADIO.

  85. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    The line will be both black AND white? That’s a fantastical notion. So I’ll get the coloured or two-tone background free?

  86. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    *is a pedantic arse*

  87. Napoleon Says:

    I got confused by dreadful chocolate box 1970s pop filth. You can have a black line on white paper. 50p.

  88. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Can it be a 3D line? Cheers.

  89. Dave Says:

    How many beans? I ask because all the creative types I frequent trendy french bars would charge £200 for a soiled bog sheet.

  90. Napoleon Says:

    Not for that price. 3D costs extra.

  91. Napoleon Says:

    Dave – You can have as much soiled toilet paper as you bloody-well want off me. With my bowels, I have an almost inexhaustible supply.

  92. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    That’s a point actually, the amount of arsewipe you must get through could probably paper kent.

  93. Dave Says:

    Don’t say that about your work. That Pablo one’s well good, just needs colouring in.

  94. Napoleon Says:

    JQW – I’m keeping Andrex afloat.

    Dave – Needs colouring in? Fuck’s sake …

  95. Dave Says:

    If I’m gonna be paying for a piece of art, and I’d consider it, I’d need it colouring in Perry. Proper colours too.

  96. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Andrex? Bit posh. I get Lidl ArscheBurn special.

  97. Napoleon Says:

    Dave – You might be in for a very nasty surprise if you’re thinking of commissioning me to do you a picture. Coloured in or not, they’re a fucking rip-off.

    JQW – I refer you to the above comment for an explanation of how I can afford such outrageously expensive toilet roll.

  98. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    So how do you set your rates? Is there a set price per size? a daily rate? or do you just screw them for as much as you can?

    How much would a cd cover cost, for instance. Perhaps one of the Virgin Mary?

  99. Napoleon Says:

    Hey, John, here’s the thing – this is a blog about TV (well … sort of), not one about how I set my prices or whether or not I screw people for money. What I charge for stuff is none of your business unless you want to buy something off me, in which case e-mail me with what you want, and I’ll make you gasp in horror when I give you a price. OK?

  100. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Christ calm down, just conversation, noone else was saying anything and I was massively bored.

  101. george Says:

    Chris Morris once wrote to Nelson Mandela, claiming that the then head of entertainment of C4 (Wade or something) had campaigned against Manedla’s release from prison. Wade had tried to cut large parts of Brass Eye from the final broadcast version of the programme. Morris also superimposed ‘wade is a cunt’ over a single frame of himself holding a gun over a symbolically unwell British Isles in the ‘Decline’ Episode.

  102. Swineshead Says:

    Michael Grade.

    JQW… what’s wrong with you today? Have you turned into a five year old girl?

  103. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Got in at 2:30, woke up at 6, worked 8 hours, essentially dead from the hair downwards.

  104. Napoleon Says:

    JQW – I’m fine thanks. I just don’t fancy discussing what I earn on the internet. Bit old fashioned in that respect, you understand? And Swineshead’s right, you’re a little girl, you are.

  105. Dave Says:

    I’m gonna buy your Ketchup monster for my kitchen. Either that or I’ll print it off from your blog.

    Still, it’s your livelihood and all that, so I see why you’d find this discourse irritating.

  106. george Says:

    That’s the last time I paraphrase from the internet.

  107. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    I can see how it might get on your tits if you’re a bit tetchy about such things. Apologies.

  108. Clarry Says:

    Right i’m the only person in the office with an hour to kill… HELP ME!

  109. Swineshead Says:

    I’ve got an hour and a half and everyone around me is working hard, Clarry.

  110. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Do a poo in a filing cabinet, somewhere near the back, and just play deadpan for the next few weeks.

  111. piqued Says:

    I’m actually very hard over here, I mean working very hard

  112. Dave Says:

    I finish at six. My brain’s screaming and crying in a corner somewhere.

  113. piqued Says:

    Can you ‘play’ deadpan?

  114. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    I was hard at work the other day. But I covered my lap with a newspaper and I don’t tihnk anybody noticed.

    A-thank you.

  115. Napoleon Says:

    Dave – I’d recommend you steal it off of the internet. I pride myself on being the only artist on the World Wide Web who doesn’t include an ‘All images copyright of B P Perry Industries, PLC. All unauthorised copying will be met with hammers, spikes and foul language’ disclaimer. Fuck it – I’ve already been payed for most of it, and any big gun trying to reproduce a lot of it would find ’emselves in the shit with the publishing company that owns the rights.

  116. piqued Says:

    one can play with ones panhandle mind you, or invite a friend to help

  117. Clarry Says:

    SH – Bah! I’ve finished everything, but have to stay to answer the phone. The phone hasn’t gone once in the last 41 minutes.

    JQW – The office is quite small, so if I did what you suggested i’d be doing myself a disservice.

  118. Dave Says:

    Perry – But the quality’s shite on your blog, though un-watermarked. I’d want a decent image cos it’d rock in any a man’s kitchen. I’ll contact you at an undisclosed time regardless.

  119. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Napoleon – so we could email you for higher res version? Or does it have to be purely theft?

  120. george Says:

    Something that’s been repeated an nausea but I can’t think of any more trivia and hell, some of you might not know; Matt Groening was originally planning to pitch his cartoon strip, life in hell, to the Tracy Ullman show. He got cold feet before he was scheduled to go in, though, and thought up a new idea for a show on the spot; a TV show based on members of his family (he has a sister called Lisa and Maggie, and a mother and father called homer and marge) set in Springfield (mainly because it was the most generic town name he could think of) that was inspired by the idealist family orientated shows of 1950s and 60s America. It was The Simpsons, obviously.

    Also, Korn once starred in a parody of Scooby doo for and episode of south park. Fieldy asked the writers to make him look real tough and manly, so they turned him into Thelma, always dropping his glasses and such.

    Team America’s send up of Michael Moore was a direct response to the making of Bowling For Columbine. Moore asked them to produce a small five minute cartoon for the show, they politely declined, and instead a cartoon was done aping their style.

  121. Swineshead Says:

    It’s all gone weird today. George is paraphrasing huge clumps of Wikipedia, Dave and JQW are asking endless dull questions, Clarry’s gone stir crazy and I think Piqued’s dead.

  122. Napoleon Says:

    Dave – The quality IS shite on my blog, you’re right. Half the stuff looks like it’s been lit in a swamp for a start. I have no idea where the original of the ketchup thing is. I’ve two computers I’ve blown up here through overuse – I’d need to see if I can drag the original off one of the internal hard drives. If not, lo-res theft it is.

    JQW – Depends if it’s recent stuff, and if I can be arsed to make the effort for you, you freeloading shitheap.

  123. george Says:

    Hey! The only bit I paraphrased from wikipedia was the Brass Eye bit, all that other stuff is off the top of my noggin. I can’t help been tediously boring, you know.

  124. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    You’ve taken loads of ’em off your illustrations blog, I see.

  125. Napoleon Says:

    Eh? I haven’t taken anything off. What’s going on?

  126. Napoleon Says:

    You’re losing your marbles, Wagonwheel.

  127. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    I swear there was that Picasso-esque one and stuff on there.

  128. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Oh, it is there. I’m an idiot.

  129. Clarry Says:

    Typical that things should go all busy on me, when i’m about to leave.

  130. Napoleon Says:

    See? See? Marbles rolling around all over the fucking place.

  131. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Where will they stop? Nobody knows.

    The black ranger tried to hack off his genitals in prison. That’s the greatest thing I’ve ever read in the news ever. The VR Troopers wouldn’t have mutilated a damned part of their crumbs, ot the Beetleborgs for that matter.

    I bet he secretly wanted to be Kimberley the pink one.

    Wuh?

  135. Napoleon Says:

    Blimey! You’d have to be pretty bored to want to saw off your own nob with a razor. I would say ‘how the mighty have fallen’, except this chap wasn’t exactly mighty in the first place really.

  136. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    You’d think he’d want to use it to bum all other prisoners to bits.

  137. Dave Says:

    Jason, the original red ranger became a porn actor. And I used them as a moral barometer as a child, beating up grey people in parks (mostly old bags in my case). It’s a scandal.

    What about Screech from Saved by the Bell! I heard he became a porn star too. Why couldn’t it have been Kelly?

  138. Napoleon Says:

    I was too old for any of this. When I was a kid my heroes were The Bandit, The Snowman and Fred, The Snowman’s hound. None of them grew up to be porn stars or kiddie-diddlers, as far as I’m aware.

  139. Dave Says:

    Pee-Wee Herman buggered a tennis ball in a portable shower cubicle, or something.

    Muffin the Mule for you, wasn’t it. I heard he teabagged Ben whilst Bill tied him down.

  140. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    My dad saw John Noakes swear.

  141. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    And on that fascinating note, I’m off to work.

  142. Jo Says:

    I’m very confused by this Power Rangers story. The black ranger was a black guy called Zach. And as a 22 year old girl with a Power Rangers quilt set currently on her bed, this is the kind of thing I know.

    It was a widely held fact when I was a child that Trini (Yellow Ranger) was actually a boy, and she left because her voice broke. Wikipedia tells me she was indeed a girl, and she died in a car crash some years ago.

    In other random facts, Penn (of Penn & Teller) is the uncle of Manchester United player Owen Hargreaves. Obvious when you look at the hair really.

    I’m lost for words, Jo. Good effort.

  144. Jo Says:

    I tend to absorb random useless facts. First pick for pub quiz teams though *thumbs up*

    Sadly my Power Rangers knowledge is pathetic in comparison to a young man I used to work with who flew to Las Vegas last summer for the first Power Morphicon (ie. Power Rangers convention). He met all 6 of the original Power Rangers AND Bulk & Skull.

    Flea is the voice or the small boy in the Wild Thornberries.

    The Chuckle Brothers do god bothering gigs for churches. They are both godders for cash.

    Robert Llllllewlyn (Red Dwarf) (?!?) does some cracking , yes cracking, funny stuff on youtube.
