Clebz - What They Think We Want To Hear?

Outdoor Life have collected together a few choice words about hunting and fishing - all uttered by attention seeking numbskulls.......

Let's start with Macca (Paul McCartney) a man who currently uses his media soapbox to vent his frustrations at his former friend, who had the temerity to die before scores could be settled.
Really, I'm not joking scroll down to controversy.

"Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, 'I am killing him—all for the passing pleasure it brings me.' "And something inside me clicked. I realized as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine is to me."

Can we believe him?

I would like to draw the courts attention to this interview in the The Sunday Times

He told “the guys, particularly John [Lennon], about this meeting and saying what a bad war this was”. Tariq Ali, [renowned lefty firebrand] who led antiwar demonstrations in London, said:
“This is news to me. We never heard of Paul’s views at the time. “It was John Lennon who was concerned about the war. He never mentioned McCartney and I never thought of asking him to join us.”

Milking cheap sentimentality has its place, song lyrics, being the ideal forum, and he was good at it. But lecturing others on how they should share his views, about the fluffy bunnies playing in the field is inviting mockery.

So Bushwacker, now that you've made your feelings about Mr McCartney known, why the picture of Lilly Allen?

I liked her dress (click the pic for a closer view of the pattern) and, well, what's not to like?

Well, you already know I'm a sucker for witty British babes (As a matter of fact on our last school trip to Europe I told my wife that I was leaving her and her students, right then, because I had fallen instantly, madly and completely in love with our blindingly witty and hilarious Jack-the-Ripper tour guide. She of course, rejected me in such a witty and humorous way that I came away beaming...)

So Lilly's all right in my book.
I first heard her when "LDN" started getting rotation on Sirius' Alt Nation, then my wife bought the CD.

As for McCartney, I can't stand that little elven-faced (clumsy, buffoonish American usage of a British epithet warning...)wanker.

don't sit on the fence chad, tell us how you really feel!

PS your use of the term is entirely correct

PPS Defiantly call me re that drink when you're next in town. I get the feeling I've got a couple of tales to tell that you'd like.

McCartney gets way too much of a free ride in the press. I remember one article that he set up a deer sanctuary to "save" the deer from hunting, only to have to beg a hunting organisation to manage the herd after they got sick due to problems caused by overpopulation!
I can't make out the dress design, screen's to low res.

Hey Sam
Thanks for commenting

In the Beatles Paul was 'the annoying one'.

My mates dad worked for them for a while back in the day and he remembers Paul as the 'tightfisted one.'

With great privilege comes great responsibility, a responsibility he has singularly failed to live up to, Bono maybe a bit of a plum but at least he's doing something, which in my book is a whole lot better than doing nothing.

For the record the other three were:
John Lennon - pompous and quite clever
Ringo - Thick and drunk
George Harrison - Very clever and introspective

We have a celeb in the states who sings " I kissed a girl and I liked it" I sing " I ate Bambi and I liked it" the only difference is you can hear one on any radio station, the other only in my shower.
