Few things make us want to vomit more than when kids are asked what they want to be when they grow up, and they say ‘Kelly Brook’ or ‘Chantelle’. In the opening to ‘Jamie’s Dream School’, practically all the kids, when asked what they wanted to be, said ‘rich and famous.’ Sad but true.
So we were delighted to receive note of a project called Red Plaques, by a man who goes by the name of Indy.
It’s a nice riposte to the
brain-numbing assault which reality/trash TV and the cult of celebrity has
had on the ambition of the nation’s young’uns.
Or you might just see one around London, although we’re told some of them are being pinched as souvenirs.
Can anyone suggest any more? Here are our 2-pence worth suggestions.
A plaque outside a bleak-looking pet shop somewhere, with the line ‘This is where RICHARD GERE (born August 31, 1949) stocked up on sanitizing rodent wash.’
Or, a plaque outside Greggs that says ‘This is where Kerry Katona once bought a reduced cheese & onion pasty.’
Second thoughts maybe we should leave this to the experts at Heritage English…
