By all that's wrong in the world of entertainment! Forgive my French, but wtf is this? Having a quick online gander through the excellent yourfannitinnit earlier, I spotted a story about the Michael Jackson tribute talent competition held over in Birchington last Friday.
Now don't misunderstand me. I'm not undermining this well-intentioned attempt to do something for the kiddiwinks. And the untimely demise of the King of Pop provided an ideal excuse to get our tubby teenagers exercising in a multicultural environment, as given the nature of the subject matter it clearly was of no import whatsoever whether any of them were black or white. No, what really brought up the All-Bran was the spectacle of 'independent' Birchington parish councillor and Latchford wannabe John Worrow strutting his very limited stuff on stage like some poor man's David Brent!
You'd have thought after all the kerfuffle the other week over the 'Mini-Me' episode he'd want to keep these kind of talent-free moves to himself, but clearly he was on tit autopilot. Compared with the dignified demeanour of the event's other organiser Ralph 'Mr Ramsgate' Hoult, who appears to have been content with some clapping and a gentle wolling of his Rs, I'd say our John made a right Cameron of himself!
Anyhow, as my dear departed showbiz godfather Hughie used to say, it's make your mind up time folks. Click on the link below and go to around 14 minutes in. You'll have to wait a while for it to load, as yourfannitinnit's online TV isn't the sharpest tool in the IT box. But I promise you, it's worth the wait!
