'You vile pig' - no he wasn't looking in the mirror, he was saying that to anybody and everybody at the airport - but what's making me chuckle even more is in the Sun they list some of the rocket man's rantings - an example follows - "In 1996 he threw a wobbly when a female fan screeched 'yoo-hoo' as he played tennis. Elton raged 'it pissed me off. I take my tennis seriously" :? In the words of John Maccers - 'You cannot be serious' :? The only racket and balls he knows surely are what comes out of his mouth and what's in his trousers (and other ahem trousers too)But what really made Cavey laugh so much that she lost her breath was reading that after a huge bust up with Tina Turner (they were doing a duet together) Tina said 'I learned the hard way that you don't tell Elton what to do.' :lol: :lol: :lol: So there you have it - Sir Elton John - singer/tennis player and mafia don... :shock:

Cavey, you seem to have picked up a bizarre virus that causes repeated innappropriate use of the present continuous instead of the simple present. It makes you sound (or rather read) like an Asian character in a dodgy 70's sitcom. Snap out of it woman.

Actually give the Sun headline writers there due. The best one they came up with on the Sports Pages was when lowly Inverness Caledonian Thistle knocked Celtic out of the Scottish cup. The headline on the back pages was:

"SUPER CALEY GO BALLISTIC CELTIC ARE ATROCIOUS!"

My objection is more aesthetic than pedantic, but I'll happily own up to both. :mrgreen:

Don't you mean 'missed the joke, their', in keeping with current trends?
Ahem. Sorry.

CHUCKLE CHUCKLE - well a lesson in grammar due to the Rocket man - SPT, I did not know you worked for the word police :? I am neither an Asian or a dodgy 70's sitcom star - the word chuckle has been in my family for decades and there's not a flying ant's arse of a chance of it ever leaving our vocal chords or pens - we love it - and Bola, yes I buy the Sun with pride - are you agreeing that it's a great read? You're not a newspaper snob are you? :? I love the Sun for the Page three girls, Mystic Meg and the back pages of sport - it's the number one read - It's not the only paper I read but it's my favourite. :D

It's not a not a case of being a newspaper snob, The Sun's an appalling right wing xenophobic comic.

Oh for fack's sake lads - i'm not a political person - i've got to tell you - I really don't care about all the phobia words and what political agendas are being hidden or being displayed by whoever in print - I read it because it is a comic - i'm tired of this pc world I live in now - Desperate Dan is the latest victim and he is a comic book character - I thought comedy was about lacking political correctness - but they've taken his gun, smokes, meat and spurs away - what's the point? :? Now he's a vegetarian hippy -I despair, really I do - Every newspaper has a political agenda - so I read the ones now that put a smile on my face because i'm just a dot on a big political landscape. I don't think for a second that whatever paper I read reflects on any of my beliefs because it does not - I read everything and nothing - I believe in everything and nothing - end of Cavey's Sunday rant - as my dear old pa used to say - 'I don't sit on the fence - there is no fence' :? and that's how I live my life lads - I breeze through it.

That's a fair comment Cavey but it has nothing to do with being PC. Of course papers have political agendas but when the Sun whips up, along side other right wing papers, racist scaremongering and fearsover asylum seekers, written by writers whose politics are questionable (Littlejohn for one) then you got to make a stand. The less people who buy it the less influential it becomes.

That fact that it is the most politically influential paper, not because of politics it contains (or lack of it) but because as UK's biggest selling paper the idiots who read it (no offence) will vote for whatever party Murdoch's minions recommends. Look how Blair and Howard court Murdoch in a vain attempt to drum up votes.

erm, without wanting to fall into the same trap as anarchy - you do know I wasn't objecting to the use of the word "chuckle" don't you??

I'd say it was my hastily abandoned teacher training that left me as a word copper, but when's the last time you heard of grammar being taught in schools?

:oops: I apologise SPT - because you told me to snap out of it i presumed that you were objecting to my use of the word - a million trog apologies...

Thank you mime boy for listening to my opinion - this is what I like about the Sounds forum - we have opinions being thrown all over the place and everybody is decent enough to acknowledge them. I will not comment any more on the subject because I could bore you all night Bola about why I drift in an aimless fashion on the sea of politics reaching out for and not rejecting any debris.... :? Ah, the sound of bollocks - start talking about politicians and start talking like them....
