Careless Whisper

"Well a lot of people don't like authority, do they, they don't like someone .. that .. that er .. self declares himself as judge, jury and executioner making decisions on their birds. I'm the equivalent of George Micheal in the birding world. His life, erm, the way he's lead his life .. is exactly the same way I've lead my life."

If Lee is the 'George Michael of Twitching' I hope I never bump into him in the gents.......

Hmm - isn't that actually Bill Oddie under the George Michael mask? Or is it LGRE thinking he's Bill Oddie thinking he's George Michael?

Fucking hell - who are you - the self appointed Presidente of the BBCPA (British Blog Comedy-Posts Association). I don't like authority you know, and I don't like having my hastily put together metaphor pedantically judged ......

Sorry - did I type that out aloud?

Yes, of course it's Oddie - I couldn't find a suitably camp bastard pose with binoculars of anyone else in the five minutes I spent laughing at the thought of LGRE singing Careless Whisper whilst stringing Pacific Swift.

Skev said...

No - not seen that one Darrell. Haven't trawled through the forums either - no doubt some nonsense on there?

More "Careless Lister" than Careless Whisper.

Last Christmas I found a rare bird
But the very next day it just flew away
This year to save me from tears
I'll string something special
(Special)

One bitten and twice shy
I kept my distance but you still fly
Tell me Birdie, can I recognize thee?
Well, I need to use a guide so it doesn’t surprise me

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying 'I have OCD,' I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if I dipped itnow I know I’d be a fool over again

Last Christmas I found a rare bird
But the very next day it just flew away
This year to save me from tears
I'll string something special
(Special)
