So there has been an online row about a ‘horrifically sour, snide and patronising tone of an anonymously written obituary about Terry Wogan published in the Daily Telegraph.
You’ll have to take the words of the paper I read as there is no way on earth that I would read the rubbish that is printed in Telegraph FULL STOP.
Rather snide remarks from you Keith.
YES – BUT the reason I am writing this is just in case The Telegraph wants to write my obituary and I am getting my say in now – while I can.
Like nearly everybody else that has commented I have to say, I admire Terry Wogan and his amazing charity work, and his humour especially when supporting our Eurovision entries etc.
I am sure Mr Anonymous managed to say something kind about Terry but listen to this. Readers (of the Telegraph let’s remember) took to twitter to denounce the obituary as “half-witted, badly written, score-settling and relentlessly stupid”.
My thoughts but – well if they are Telegraph readers – that is the norm they should be used to it.
But we are not there yet – here is the main point.
One visitor objected to references to his wigs and psoriasis on his hands. I must admit I didn’t know about his wigs or indeed his psoriasis. It really made my day to find those fact out though (whoops – sorry that was sarcasm slipping in again)
Now back to my mission with this blog. I can’t think of much but I am sure that the world would like to know the following facts about me.
A reference note for the Telegraph writers – anonymous as you are:-
- I don’t have any wigs BUT I did use ‘Just for Men’ for about five years. I stopped when my the hair looked orange — it is very naturally grey right now. I am sure everybody will want to know that.
- I don’t have psoriasis but I have had a wart on my leg an inch or two below my knee (right leg) – a photo can be obtained if you send postage to PO Box 123456789 Poole Dorset
- Yes I did read a copy of the Telegraph once but gave up the habit immediately.
Anyway I hope my obituary won’t be for some time – so I will have to keep you posted if there is anything new the world will need to remember me by.
Ah the paper boy has just delivered my Daily Star – now there’s a paper you can really trust – off to have a good read.
