Big Brother - A Reversal

World events? Political stuff? Recession? It's all pretty dire. Is there any good news? I have been asked how I would sort it all out. Christ knows. But perhaps I would put all the world leaders in the Big Brother house so that we good keep an eye on them; perhaps put Gok Wan in there with them so he could teach them all how to look good naked. At least they could entertain us, if nothing else, whilst we shudder over our heating bills.
There are no good ads on TV. I take this as another bad sign...
Anyhow, whilst I was musing on world peace and such like, I stumbled across this video on Youtube. Personally I was a little transfixed by the lead singer's trousers... well it took my mind off other things...

The trousers!

I thought they were ballet tights at first although I've never seen ballet tights with such a prominent codpiece. Maybe Blackadder is more to the point.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Was that a codpiece, Miss Scarlet, or was he just happy to see you?

MJ said...

I averted my eyes.

It was the proper thing to do.

Kevin Musgrove said...

With a bulge like that it can only be an advert for Hannigan's Truss Boutique

scarlet-blue said...

Fairyhedge: At first I wasn't sure if he had any trousers on. So I watched closely...

Mr Bananas:...I then wondered if it was his shirt flapping around... or perhaps I had a fuzzy screen.

MJ: This I doubt! But we were probably looking at stinky socks stuffed in underpants. Cheesy.

Kev: Ah, of course, The St. Lone Ranger's Story (1937)... I'm with you now... I suppose it's a way of keeping warm this winter.

MJ said...

Coincidentally, I started working on a post last week about codpieces.

Alas, it has gone back into the "ideas" folder until I have more time to complete it.

When posted, I shall be expecting your expert opinion.

Do you think BEAST stuffs his trousers?

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: I shall be there giving all cod-pieces the eye, and my utmost attention.
Yeah, I reckon Mr Beastie stuffs his trousers. Probably has a nice line of lurex posing pouches in his wardrobe... possibly in purple.

BEAST said...

What the hel IS going on with those trousers

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: Well, I think that's what we'd all like to know.
Plus... does he ever get knocked out by the swinging light fitting and what's with all the exploding cars? I know it's cold, but this is perhaps a little excessive.

scarlet-blue said...

You can tell I've been studying it, can't you...?

Well after reading these comments there's no need to watch the vid anymore - tis the reason I enjoy watching ballet....

As for Big Bro, I reckon we should chuck the world leader in the jungles, 'I'm a celeb get me out of here' style - now that would be entertaining....

HoodChick said...

Oh. My. God. It's like watching a wreck, you can't tear your eyes off of it. Is he naked? Is there a cod piece? What is it?

Reminds me of a photo of Robert Plant that an old friend had taped to her fridgie. I swear there was a cucumber in his pants...

Krimo said...

Faded genes.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Was he actually wearing any trousers?? I couldn't see any. He's going to get a nasty burn if he goes near that fire!

MJ said...

I reckon Mr Beastie stuffs his trousers. Probably has a nice line of lurex posing pouches in his wardrobe... possibly in purple.

The mind boggles.

Captain Smack said...

The Big Brother idea is pure genius. Kim Jong Il would probably steal the show. I bet he would be the "whiny" one who always complains that no one ever takes him seriously enough. Akmadinijad would be the "funny" one (that bit he does about no homosexuals living in Iran is hilarious).

eroswings said...

He's wearing chaps with his jeans. Big Brother in the US sucks! It's boring and heavily censored. We don't get the naked people banging each other that the countries Big Brother shows. At least MTV's Real (Fake) World manufactures fights and shows drunks to keep it semi entertaining. But I stopped watching MTV years ago--too much talk and not enough music videos...

Dave said...

I couldn't possibly comment.

BEAST said...

****is maintaining a dignified silence about trouser stuffing and purple lurex codpieces***
All I have to say is one has to eat our 5 a day fruit and veg , and where I decide to store my fruit (two oranges and a banana) for daily transportation is entirely up to me

KAZ said...

Well this will do nicely while Robert Plant is messing about with Alison Krauss in a pair of baggy chinos.

Autolycus said...

No wonder he sounds as though he's in agony. Obviously got his knickers in a twist.

WV: "tiricog" - obviously, a special attachment to add a bit of force to enable the flies on this gent's trews to work.

scarlet-blue said...

Goodness me, I've only just surfaced... Anyhow,

Lostlamb: We should shove them all in the jungle and make them dance the Tango with Heather Mills...

Hoodchicky: I know, I did wonder what was going on in his trousers. A love affair with a ferret perhaps?

Krimo: Hello and Welcome!
Naked genes? Quite possibly exhibitionist genes...

Gadj: He's also going to get knocked out by the wayward light fitting that's swinging away close to his head...

MJ: I've thought of a video clip that you might enjoy... Alan Partridge...? I'll see if I can find it...

Mr Captain: I probably owe my idea to satirist Rory Bremner... but it is such a fab idea... I think we should put democracy to the test and vote all the world leaders into the Big Brother house... I wonder who would sleep with who...?

Mr Swings: See if you can find a copy of 'Dead Set' to watch, by Charlie Brooker... He turns the housemates into zombies...[??]- Superb.

Dave: Well I think you should... otherwise they'll be no muffins for you today...

Mr Beastie: You are a veritable fruit bowl Mr Beastie. I've seen pictures.

Kaz: I always aim to please. And perhaps this is something for the new iPod?

Mr Auty: I don't think he's wearing knickers...
He probably got something caught in his zipper though....

Eryl Shields said...

Interesting how we girls try to eliminate all bulges but men strive to create them. I wonder if he can sit down dressed like that.

CyberPete said...

You know what they say, tight pants big...

Hair!

Dave said...

Mmmmm... muffins.

EmmaK said...

how do you find these gems? you had me in stitches. What has he got stuffed down his trousers, a ferret or a couple of Cadburys creme eggs?

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: Well, if he can sit down without splitting anything vital, then I'm not going to volunteer to sit on his knee...

Pete: Tight pants, big ego, big hair, big feet... small...

Dave: Yes Dave, you can have a muffin now.

Emma: This find was a complete accident! But I can assure you that I won't be dunking his creme eggs... another good use for them though... interesting thought...

Sx

CyberPete said...

Ears?

Clyde said...

You should feel sorry for someone with such a deformity

Dave said...

'you can have a muffin now'.

Is that a euphemism?

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Well he does sing "I got nothing to hide".

I love the idea of the Big Brother House. Ahmedinajad would certainly be a contender after his Alternative Christmas Message - the man's a born comedian! I'd love to see Mugabe with his head in a bag full of scorpions.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Toes?

Clyde: Please! I don't want to think about feeling him...

Dave: No, I believe it's a bakery product...

Daphne: George Galloway set the trend... we should turn them all into pussy cats and make them lap milk from the saucers of page three girls...
They are all natural comedians.

I work in Advertising - the arse is rapidly falling out of it - no money, lots of redundancies. Saying that, there are a couple of ads on at the moment that I really like - the new Audi one with the cardboard box and the Hovis brand ad. But then, that's just me...

Puss

scarlet-blue said...

Puss: I like the Hovis ad... And the Audi one?... I'm still making notes on that one... Interesting though.
