It’s our birthday on Saturday. We may have mentioned it. We’re having a great big party at KOKO and we’re going to have crisps and cake on the same plate, eat as many sweets as we can and then cry / vomit as a result of the indulgent gluttony. If you fancy joining us then buy a ticket! But hurry, we’re running out of advance tickets as it seems everyone wants to be at our party. Just how it goes when you’re the most popular kid at school. Tra la la.
Anyway, there are others celebrating their birthday’s with us this week. And we don’t mean regular people like Brenda from the shop or your Aunty Carol. No, we mean special people who are vastly superior to us normals as they’ve done something to get on the telly. That’s right, we’re talking FAMOUS FACES.
Today for example is the 61st birthday of both Sean Rowley impersonator Bruce Springsteen and former children’s tv presenter Floella Benjamin.
The Boss and Benjamin, F share their 61st birthdays today.
She’s got an OBE now AND a seat in the House of Lords. What’s the boss holding to rival that? Rugged good looks and a good line in the knee bend dance (see here for the classic example), but does he have a Caribbean soup and convenience meal range in ASDA? No, he does not. The Benjamin does. He may be one of the last great American songwriters, but she’s the President of the Ramblers association.
Therefore, we can deduce from this that Benjamin beats the Boss hands down in well everything. Soz Bruce, but you need to up your game. However we welcome you both with open arms to our party on Saturday. It’s just we might be a bit more excited about the Playaway lady being there than the King of the overbite singers. Thems the breaks Bruce.
