Now That’s Cool?

February 26, 2009 4 comments

As things are a bit quiet on here at the moment I though I would brainstorm ‘cool’ and not quite so cool people based on my memories or understanding of the past. We can all do such lists and I would be interested in yours. It is a bit like the Room 101 programme with Paul Merton except that I would not want to actually throw anyone out because it might hurt!

Here we go:

COOL [GREAT] PEOPLE – In no particular order

Jack Benny, Denis Compton, Sir Donald Bradman, Vicar Welby, Professor Richard Dawkins, Bill Bailey,Victor Borge, Raich Carter, Soccer Gleghorn, Eric Sykes,Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Tom Finney, President Obama, Ricky McSeveney and the whole cast of Larkrise to Candleford.

NOT QUITE SO COOL PEOPLE – In no particular order

Carol Vorderman, Charles the First, People who say ‘because you are worth it’ in make up adverts, Nicholas Soames, Roy Keane, Harry Redknapp, Sir Alex Ferguson and Jeremy Clarkson.

There are plenty of people that could be added to the above lists but I have avoided awful people like Hitler and Attila the Hun – I need to research Attila a bit more!

Don’t worry my next article will be more orthodox!
