Another great Big Brother moment?

Again, not strictly a Big Brother moment this, but whatever... So, despite not watching BB last night, we did flick over to watch a bit of companion show Big Brother's Big Mouth. Now, I've never watched this before, partly because Wife had convinced me that I don't like the presenter, Russell Brand, whose name is not David Brand despite what some Wanted Man might have tricked you into believing.

Anyway... Mr Brand started talking about his ball bag, as you do. And then -- sorry, this is so going to mean nothing to our American cousins -- he mentioned being "in Stringfellows, with Beppe, Walliams, and Gaffney, with our booth smelling like my ball bag". Oh, priceless...

I absolutely love Russell Brand, he's the funniest bloke on TV at the moment and if you look beyond his eye-liner, wild hair and ridiculous dress sense, handsome too.

BBBM is the only entertaining part of it. Mind you Mrs G-H loves the thing. Without her loyalty to the programme Iwouldn't be parodying it and our cretinous polititions.

Yeah Russell Brand regularly talks about them. He refers to them as the "Womanising Club". He is very funny and pretty fit in real life as well. I was drinkinh with him at the Wolfmother gig a few months ago. Nice chap.

ACT: Nothing wrong with men in eyeliner. I used to wear a lot more than that in my youth: eyeliner, eyeshadow, lippy, the lot. Maybe I'll dig up a picture -- creatively cropped, of course.

Cynnie: Baw Bag (appropriately enough!) is right. The people mentioned are Brit TV stars, the likes of whom are unmatchable in US TV. Sorry.

BB: It just can't be done, can it?

Hobbs, sir: I am finding myself more and more taken in by it. I watched it again last night, and ...

HtDJ: ... I now see that his ball bag(s) is/are indeed a recurring theme. Very funny. But Wolfmother?! Come now: I thought we'd left bad '70s rock behind us.

Rauf: Thanks for stopping by. I'm so glad that's cleared up. I think it's important to raise our voices about such things. Maybe no one's listening, but who knows?

I think Russell is rare talent and have watched him over the last few years. He has the sharpest of wit and his observation is hilarious.

He also talks a lot about his dinkle. Which goes down well with me. ;)

I prefer the Scottish phrase for what Russell was talking about - Bawbag. Sounds much better.

I hate Brand. He's managed to single-handedly shag his way through a whole bevvy of women including Kate Moss, whilst at the same time being paid to present a programme about the programme that you just watched.

He must be a fucking genius.

Cappy: I was surprised at how cool and funny he seems, but I'm not wanting his babies or anything.

Suze: Agreed. (Apart fromt he dinkle bit, although that is funny.)

Martino: Bawbags is a cooler word, for sure, but it would sound a bit contrived from an Englishman, I guess.

Anti Crapitalist: Ah, jealousy and envy...

I don't think I'll ever change it to Russell now, this small claim to fame has gone straight to my head. Heee hee.

And as for Wolfmother - there's always more room for bad 70s rock. Who doesn't enjoy a bit of head banging?
