I was quite enjoying the first showing of the Children In Need “God Only Knows” song last week, until Reg Dwights fat face appeared on the screen and I realised what I was watching. Now I enjoy ironic humour as much as the next person, but really, that is pushing the boundaries just a tad too far. I’m surprised Bonio didn’t make an appearance with Angelina
Ballerina Jolie doing the Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini crying stuff. Cheryl is of course a great supporter of Children in need and helping the community, after all, she did give up 120 hours of her time back in 2003 doing community service. Yes I know, I shouldn’t stoop to toilet attendant comments. Hey do you remember that Lynn Anderson song in the 1970’s “I Never Promised You A Rose Garden.” Not sure why that suddenly flashed into my head.
So back to the outrageous money making, career enhancing con that is Children In Need, no doubt hosted again this year by Sir Terry (It wasn’t my job to expose Savile) Wogan see here. It seems, according to today’s Mail that they are sitting on £87.7 million. Just think about that when they come begging.
