Anyhow. I took a look at Facebook yesterday and saw someone had posted a pic of a pal of mine. ‘Shit,’ I thought. ‘That’s a rotten picture. She never looks that mank. Not in real life.’
And, within a pulse-beat, said friend posted. ‘REMOVE.’
And the poster did that really annoying thing of…’Oh, sorry. I would. I will. Oooh, I can’t work my phone…blether blether blether.’
Which actually was quite funny as it was a bit of a case of the biter bit…
‘REMOVE IT NOW.’
Ouch. I felt her pain. I mean nobody likes having unflattering pictures plastered over the Internet, do they? As I think I’ve said before, you kinda get used to it as a journalist cos picture editors delight in picking The Very Worst pic they can of the manky writers (why? Basically it’s an old war – picture eds never get taken out to lunch).
But anyhow. I figured, as it’s Christmas, I would give you a laugh by posting up the worst picture of me ever taken by anyone anywhere anyhow. As far as I know.
Actually I originally posted a Top Ten but then decided that, really, I didn't want to put your off your mince pies and, anyhow...less is more, right?
So here you go. The picture that makes me laugh like a drain every time I see it. From my trip to Walt Disney World with Linda, Becky (yeah, that's the jammy bitch next to me looking cool as a cucumber and bloody gorgeous), Alice, Lulu, Erica, Laura and Mary Poppins. And I have been promising them for the longest time that I'd post it - but I couldn't find it. Honestly! But then I did.
Now. Honestly. Can you top that? Cos frankly I doubt it. But if you think you can, I double dare you to post on your blog and link back to me so I can have a snigger.
