"You're a bum, you're a punk..."
Bailey's team don't know the next line.
"You're an old slut on junk" is the next line.
"Who would write a line like that?" says Alesha**, now solo artist, formerly of pop group Mis-Teeq.
"The Pogues," says Jupitus with utter disdain.
Jupitus, looking like a fat Truman Capote with those wanky little glasses is one of the old guard who thinks that Joe Strummer and Ian Dury and Shane MacGowan are gods. He's got his own show on BBC radio because he's a shite comedian, and of course shite comedians like him and Lamarr know all about music, don't they?
Jupitus likes The Ordinary Boys.
But a young black woman not knowing the masterful words of the drunk master wordsmith Shane MacGowan? It's part of British culture, darling, don't you ever listen to words? You must have heard Fairytale Of New York thousands of times.
Yes, haven't we fucking all.
Still, at least that tosser Lamarr's gone, replaced by my favourite young television personality, Simon Amstell.
All we need now is Miquita Oliver and get rid of Jupitus and wacky-weirdy-beardy Bailey and we might have a decent show.
** by a strange coincidence, Alesha has a very similar laugh to that of Shane MacGowan. A sort of a "sheesh sheesh sheesh sheesh".
