Now Officially Less Annoying Than Mick Hucknall!

Β 

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.Β 

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, (andΒ 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.
