The idiots have won!

Charlie Brooker's Nathan Barley is still one of the funniest things ever on TV - I know 'cause I deal with a lot of those people - Meeja Fools!

Once the idiots were just the fools gaping in through the windows, now they have entered the building. You can hear them everywhere, they use the word cool, it is their favourite word, the idiot doesn't think about what he is saying, thinking is rubbish and rubbish isn't cool...... Stuff and shit is cool. The idiots are self regarding, consumer slaves. Oblivious to the paradox of their uniform individuality, they sculpt their hair to casual perfection, they wear their waist bands below their balls, and they babble in to handheld twit machines about that cool email of a woman being bummed by a wolf.... their cool friend made it, he’s an idiot too. Welcome to the age of stupidity, hail the rise of the idiot.


Those two fine examples of humanity - Jonathon Ross and the other guy are in trouble for reverting to type on Radio 2. But, imagine my suprise when I was in the newsagents to buy a bag of crisps and I saw this cover of a lads mag - the young woman in the centre of the whole debacle with her kit off - the idiots have won!

Andy Warhol said it right when he said "...my prediction from the sixties finally came true: In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes."

She's is milking everything she can get out of it!!! BTW one of my monkey's was in Nathan Barley his first role on screen.
