The Third Most Shaggable Blogger in Britain...


The Witanagemot Blogging Awards have been published today HERE. Modesty forbids me mentioning how many awards I won, but the one I have most pleasure in telling you about is this. I came third in the MOST SHAGGABLE BLOGGER category, albeit joint third with Devil's Kitchen. We were pipped to this most prestigious of awards by Trixy and Bethan Jenkins AM.

So I guess this mans Chris Mounsey and I can lay claim (titter) to the title of Most Shaggable Male Bloggers. It does make one wonder how partially sited the electorate were in this competition, doesn't it?

PS Anyone who suggests that the photo on the right looks like Peter Mandelson will be summarily executed. Isn't it amazing what the ravages of 25 years have done? :)

Dear Peter Mandelson

Well done being so shaggable...

Sorry, Iain, I honestly thought it was Lord Lucan!

Alex said...

The guy on the left looks like my mate Dave.

The Raven said...

Iain,

Never mind that picture looking like Peter Mandelson, I actually thought it was Peter Mandelson. Sorry :)

barny said...

Iain, that bloke on the right looks like you when you were twelve.

A bit unfair to use such a bad photo of Chris to make yourself look better Iain! He really is very shaggable.

AfricanMum said...

Thank God you've got rid of the moustache! And what's with the hair, did you use mousse in those days or just hair gel?

javelin said...

Blimey thin pickings. I'll send you my photo if you want to win the "most shaggable" prize.

FonyBlair said...

Reminds me of John Ketley (The ex BBC Weatherman). This could be one for the private Eye lookalikes section!?

FonyBlair said...

Just looked at your winning categories. Many congratulations on winning -

Blogger most likely to vote for a donkey if you slapped the correct colour rosette on it -

Now that has to be up there with winning an Oscar!!?

How on Earth did Nadine Dorries manage 3rd place in the "Best blog by a politician" category?

Seriously. The bloomin site doesn't accept comments so is a one-way street where Nadine pontificates and pronounces without granting the reader the opportunity to challenge or respond. It's the blogging equivalent of someone sticking their fingers in their ears and going "La la la la I can't hear you" when you try to ask them an awkward question, or pick up on a factual error in their argument.

Guess it must come down to the knickers...

Oh, and you look less like Mandelson now, if that is any consolation.

Conand said...

The guy on the right looks just like Peter Mandelson.

Jebus....you mean things have got worse?

The Remittance Man said...

Is that Mandelson? I thought it was a young Stavros the Kebabshop Owner :-)

Dave H. said...

Without wishing to be impolite, third? For God's sake, how many votes were cast?

As for look-alikes, without doubt Peter Mandelson was the inspiration for Mrs Tweedy from
Chicken Run. If you want an uncanny sense of recognition just check it out.

As for the dodgy-looking guy on the right, he does resemble "I'm Mandy, Fire Me" during his days as a member of the communist party.

Blue Eyes said...

DK does not look as weird as that in real life, I am told.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

I'll be nice to you, Iain. A younger Timothy Dalton.

How's that?

Cath said...

Iain, you provide more evidence that men improve with age (within reason of course!)

Jon said...

Who's the chap on the right? Mandy?

Daily Referendum said...

More like love child spawned from Kevin Webster and Ian Rush.

Sorry.

Chad said...

There's definitely some Basil Fawlty in there too... ;-)

mattwardman said...

The one on the right is more like a suburban version of Borat.

Any chance of one in a mankini?

Obnoxio The Clown said...

@mattwardman: You need help. A lot of help.

Anonymous said...

this mans Chris Mounsey and I"
should this say MEANS? Who is the porn star on the right? I've seen him in a 1970s video but cannot think of his name. Was the poll conducted in Glasgow East and when can we see the YouTube skit on it? Have a good week-end

anonaLon said...

I thought it was Borat?

Liz said...

I saw non-cartoon Dizzy in the Times. It saddened me.

simon said...

Question: Did Rob Fenwick come anywhere on the list? And by eck, that tache on iain makes him an honorary member of the Bruce Forsyth fan club.

Matt Wardman said...

@obnoxio: You need help. A lot of help.

You offering ?

;-)

Bishop Brennan said...

Iain - pretty impressive, all that blogging AND almost negotiating a trade deal at the WTO...

PS Have you really got that photo of Gordon on his rocking horse? ;)


Word verification: I am faqd (I kid you not - bad omen for me following this post?!)

Bishop Brennan said...

BTW Inspector Gadget should be the best police blog...

Third most shaggable?

Britains binge-drinking culture really is getting out of control, eh?
