This makes two of us. The BBC ran a '100 Greatest Britons'
poll and had Diana mentioned along with names like Churchill, Darwin,
Lennon, Shakespeare and Newton (Diana placed third, by the way). It was
a WTF Moment that wasn't surpassed until I heard that 'Bi' was rated the second most influential entertainer in the world by Time magazine (I guess he influenced a lot of other singers around the world to poorly imitate the sound and style of American singers?).
What exactly did Diana do that was so great anyway? Is sleeping with Charles that incredible of an effort? If she never really loved him, wasn't she just marrying him for the money and prestige? That's funny, because when normal women do that kind of thing we tend to call them gold-digging whores.
Other WTF Moments from the Greatest Briton's poll: Boy George was
ranked 12 places higher than Freddie Mercury from Queen. Personally, I
blame the homosexual community in general for having such awful taste in
music (I offer the Scissor Sisters
success in the UK as evidence of that). Freddie Mercury will always be the true Queen of England in my book. All the Beatles were in the top 100, save poor Ringo
who I understand was ranked 467, just behind Yoko Ono. Bob Geldof and
Bono, who are actually Irish, placed 75 and 86 respectively. And the
greatest shocker of all is that Ozzy Osbourne, the Elvis Presley of
heavy metal, was not included. Be ashamed Britain. Be very ashamed.

No Ozzy? A travesty, that's what it is.

Diana's a poofter. So is Geldof and the gang. As for the Gang of Four, a bunch of wankers.
However, Adrian Mole Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm, interesting, personally i think the world was doing a fine job of imitating the Americans without Bi... but i could be wrong... i mean i always kind of thought that working out the laws of the universe was SLIGHTLY more important than giving birth to princes...
