When heroes have feet of clay

Last week I was wondering whether you could still enjoy something if it turned out that the people behind it were flawed. For example, “I’ve kind of gone off James Ellroy of late after seeing him in a documentary, because he seemed a lot less tough and a lot more creepy than I’d imagined him in my head.”

That’s nothing compared to this bombshell.

Lorraine Kelly is a caravan enthusiast.

    (tries to think of a witty comment to get the word ‘Growler’ into it….)

    You are a bad man.

    Incidentally, caravan enthusiast does sound like a euphemism, doesn’t it?

    “You know that Lorraine Kelly?”
    “She’s one of those caravan enthusiasts.”
    “No way!”
    “Yeah, I’m serious. A fully paid-up member of the Caravan Club, if you know what I mean.”

  4. My Mrs M is in St Andrews this very day looking at 2nd hand caravans and sites, dontcha know. And we’ll be at the SECC show tomorrow.

    I did think there was something of the *taps nose* “caravan enthusiast” about you.

  6. I was in the RAF with her cousin for a while. She was ginger and every bit as annoying as Lorraine Kelly.

    She’s always got on my tits for some reason. Now I know why…

  7. Imagine the fun of Lorraine Kelly AND James Ellroy in a caravan. Bad dog!

    That’s wrong on so many levels I don’t know where to start.
