Now Officially Less Annoying Than Mick Hucknall!

Now Officially Less Annoying Than Mick Hucknall!

 

So, after writing that Cilla post earlier, I got to thinking. A long time ago, Bob Carolgees was interviewed by some website or other and said that his career low was finding himself on the website version of 1000 People More Annoying Than Mick Hucknall. At the time, I gave a little internal cheer and had a moment of pride that we had beaten down all the abuse he got on Tiswas, all the days he stood in the pouring rain doing outside broadcasts for Surprise! Surprise! and stuffing his hand up a stuffed dogs arse for a living. 

HOWEVER.

Those days are pretty much over. Bob now owns a candle workshop place near Delamere Forest, and sells very pretty candles for a living. He is no longer largely responsible for various infections being spread like wildfire around playgrounds while horrible children justify their spitting at a classmate because “that dog on the telly did it”. Indeed, his new website (which is linked in the linkydink thing on the front page) gives you lots of useful tips, like “how to use an ornamental candle as a candle, without using it as a candle” (I won’t spoil the joy if you go visit, but it basically involves fitting a tealight shaped hole in the top and using tealights instead of the actual candle. Damn, I spoilt the joy, visit anyway.)

As you may recall, Mark Kermode became the first person to be deemed less annoying – and frankly, I am pondering a rethink on that because I sent a nice email to point out it was 1000 people more annoying and not fifty and I don’t think he cared because he didn’t correct himself later.

But for now, Bob Carolgees, will become the second, (and that’s an exclusive honour, I still have a lot of list to fill,) person deemed OFFICIALLY less annoying than Mick Hucknall.

I designed this on his website, and am actually toying with sending him it. But once you do one... They'll all want one.

No, I haven’t gone mad, and no, you can’t make me change my mind.

New Section! I’m Less Annoying :)

Hallo!

I have introduced this section because I wanted to also highlight those celebrities who don’t actually rate high on my annoyance meter at the present time – and who I may want to thank or say something good about. Bit of balance to the equation, if you will.

Todays Person Less Annoying, is a former resident on the More Annoying list during the website incarnation of the Mick Hucknall annoyance rating system, but warrants no place on this list at present.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mark Kermode. Our first “LESS ANNOYING THAN MICK HUCKNALL” SCHMELEBRITY GOOD GUY.

Officially Guaranteed 100% Less Annoying Than Mick Huck.

Officially Guaranteed 100% Less Annoying Than Mick Huck.

The reason I have nominated Mark Kermode is that he mentioned the old website (although he did get the numbers wrong – its not 50, its 1000!) on his film review show this afternoon. As a result of that mention, lots of people went looking for the website, and ended up here. I have had my highest ever traffic today, and I am very grateful for the inadvertent publicity.

So today, we salute Mark Kermode and give him big Hucknall ❤
