Faded rock journo Julie Burchill came in for a critical mauling from a man in the street today after she claimed in a tabloid newspaper that Big Brother was essential TV viewing, and that the critics who took the piss out of the show were just jealous, and too far up their own arses.
"That's a bit extreme," said a bloke we spoke to in the street in Rochdale, where Mike Harding once alleged it was hard to be a cowboy. "This Julie Burchill appears to be saying that people who don't like Big Brother are some kind of aristocratic snobs who don't work for a living and suck off the fat of the land.
"That's crap that is. I HATE Big Brother. I mean, what's the point of sitting around in your living room watching other people sit around in a living room. Julie Burchill is a moron. And a hypocrite. She spends her life swanning about down that London talking bollocks and getting paid for it. She says that snobby people pretend to hate Big Brother because it may associate them with Joe Public, who has a proper job and loves Big Brother.
"What does she know? She's one of the in crowd. She shouldn't dictate to the likes of me, what I should and shouldn't watch on the telly. Stuck up cow."
We spoke to a leading cosmetic surgeon who told us that he had heard of Julie Burchill, that she was a product of the punk era in the 1970's and that by now her tits would probably be alarmingly saggy.
Which just goes to prove that fading rock chicks with saggy tits get incredibly bitter and twisted with age.
More saggy breasted sarcasm as we get it.
