Yule be Sorry!

My brother rang me to say he's had a dream about me, which I found rather worrying, particularly as it also involved Simon Cowell. (Pictured above handling a Christmas Release for his close friend Louis Walsh).

Apparently, he'd dreamt that I'd produced my own Song in an attempt to stop the Saviour of ITV doing his customary assault on the Christmas Number One, which is only normally such in a toilet sense. I'd been so incensed at the annual X-Factor warbling pap that I'd put together my very own antidote single and had started an internet campaign to try get it to top the Christmas charts before Mr Cowell.

"What was the name of this David against Goliath Single", I enquired.

"Rog against the Machine!", he responded.

He's hilarious, my brother.

and I was first, I must have even less to do than Dave - it's a Christmas miracle!

Rog said...

Thanks Ziggi...I am Mycroft to his Sherlock. You won't find any Turkeys on this blog, and Dave will have been out for a Duck as usual.
Christmas is a time for rest - have a good 'un!

Scarlet Blue said...

...sounds painful... but then again I have a filthy mind.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Dave said...

Oddly, I happen to understand this joke.

Is this a record?

Rog said...

Scarlett: It was definitely Painful! Have a Supertastic New Year!

Dave: Is this a Record! That's very good Dave.

Geoff said...

Norfolk Yule, I won't do what you tell me!

Rog said...

Geoff: I knew I could rely on Youle. That'll be 72p please.

KAZ said...

Can your brother do toilet jokes as well? Your mum must be so proud.
Happy Christmas to you, Mrs Rine, Oz and Lily.

Rog said...

Kaz: Many a true word! Anyway check Oz & Lil on the BBC:

Happy Christmas to you and the Kevster!

Dave said...

Thank you. I'm glad you got my joke.

KAZ said...

Are you their legal agent? You must claim your 10%.

Vicus Scurra said...

Like Dave, I understood this. I suspect that, like me, Dave has never heard any of the music in question however.

Dave said...

Vicus is correct.

Rog said...

Dave: Always a first time!

Kaz: I'm on 20% ... but there was no fee.

Vicus: You're just over excited at the prospect of Brenda's speech this afternoon.

Dave: Always a first time!
