Look at me Marr!!!

Bearded handsome egotistical Genius.



But enough about me.

I suspect that you have all been playing Sting's appearance on the Andrew Marr Show over and over to suck every drop of brilliance from the master's incisive pronouncements. He is 41 minutes in.

Sting brings some Soul Cakes into the studio with him. What a guy. I particularly liked this exchange:

Andrew: "Hello....what are you doing with that fruitcake?"
Sting: "It's not a fruitcake Andrew....its a soulcake"

Andrew : "I was talking to the Soulcake".
And Sumner fell on stony ground.

I'm still reflecting and examining what a ah soul he is. What's with the hobo beard too ...eeew

Sarah said...

sorry that should be *an ah soul* before Dave picks it up....not that he can drag himself to a computer at the mo..

Rog said...

Sarah: It's more than stubble now. Dave knows all about cleansing souls. I've seen his doormat.

KAZ said...

Eurgh I watched that just to see if it had really happened.
Good joke Rog.
Sting has a beard, Becks has a beard - hey you're trendy at last. Pity they're both prats.

Rog said...

Kaz: Thanks for not including me. Dave has a beard but may have shaved it off as part of his diet.

Dave said...

Actually Dave hasn't shaved for the last few days, as it takes more energy than he has. The goatee is disappearing under a wave of facial hair.

Rog said...

Dave: I think you need to tryt one of Sting's tantric sould cakes.

Z said...

Beards suit some people more than others. Sting is one of the others, at least in that clip.

Was that *soulcake* a failed rock bun, or a scone? I'm with Sarah on her judgement.

Geoff said...

I can't bear that smug twat.

And Sting's even less likeable. There's no soul in his music so he has to put it in his cakes.

Scarlet Blue said...

For some reason everything I have read here equals David Soul...
He also went through a bearded phase.
Sx

Sarah said...

...and did you see Sting on the one show last night?....self indulgent twat....

Betty said...

Judging by his beardy, tweedy appearance on The One Show, Sting is trying to cultivate the Irish playwright look, so we can all think he is even more profound than we ever thought he was previously.

What a truly profound man he is!!!

Rog said...

Z: He looked like one of the Clampitts. I didn't understand the rock cake, not being familiar with currant affairs.

Geoff: This post was dedicated to you. I watched Bill Bailley on TV last night taking the piss out of the Killer's "I got soul but I'm not a soldier". He got the audience to sing "I've got ham but I'm not a hamster".

Scarlett: Don't give up on us baby.

Sarah: There's a lot of us about.

Betty: He doesn't look so deep when he keeps taking his shirt off.

He's the chap from the Police isn't he? I have one of those already thanks, but no beard although having failed to pack his razor he did attempt one last week but it wasn't a good look. I think this is a slur on fruitcakes and will be making an official complaint to the Chief High Fruitcake.

Roger said...

Ziggi: Police carry Razors - sounds like a Daily Mail headline. I see you've been on about beards and fruitcakes but I got there first!
