Glasgow to get its own Hollywood-style walk of fame

99% of comments on the Evening Times website make me think the entire country is populated by idiots, but this one killed me. It’s a response to the proposal by an SNP councillor to have a “walk of fame” of famous Scots in Glasgow’s George Square. As the ET reports “singers Lulu and Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri could be among those honoured with a thistle, rather than a Tinseltown star” – which has got Johnny Punchclock very excited indeed.

Ooh! Ooh! Fran and Anna! The Krankies! Various people out of River City! Chick Young! Kipper Lynch out of High Living! Kelly Marie!

Heh heh heh.

It gets weirder up there every day.

Scotland has punched above its weight in many fields over the years, but entertainment is not one of them. A ‘Hall Of Fame’ for scientists, engineers or explorers would be a much better bet than one for Andy Stewart, Runrig and David “F*cking” Tennant.

To be fair it’s the ET rather than the councillor, I think – she’s talking about Hume and the ET suggests Ricky Ross.

Which says something about Scotland in general, I think – a walk of fame with Ricky Ross on it.
