I’m a celebrity, let me fall to my death

There’s so much wrong with this, fake celebrities, (including the poor man’s Russell Woolf Michael Shultz), Belltower, wearing orange, abseiling into a boat. The highlight of the week, the highlight mind you is Wear Orange Wednesday. And organisers told me that placement of safety harnesses will prevent looking up Michael Shultz and Ebbeny Farranda’s respective dresses. Not cool. (Ebbeny? Really?) And no Mignon Henny? For shame.

    Celebrities ? I was just looking for a present for an, ahem, friend. That’s one URL that’s not gonna look good in my browser history. Guess it’s not as bad as when I was looking for a pen for DFOC.

    This is a now more enhanced and vibrant worst. The evil geniuses who have done this deserve a far greater audience.
    Maybe we should “out” the location?

    I recognised three names on the list of ‘personalities’. No Bree, or Winton? She-Ra too busy?
    Obviously didn’t ask Patti, she’d be up there like a rat up a drain pipe.
