Celebrity Pigeon Racing

Bit pissed about this one – BBC did a thing called Sport Relief yesterday with celebrity pigeon racing. Reckon I’ve got to be pretty big on the celebity pigeon front, surely? I may be shit at the flying really fast bit, and prob a bit out of shape, but still.

Here’s one of them, ‘Pam’, hanging out with Davina McCall:

Pam? Never fucking heard of her.

Here’s another nobody called ‘Monty’ chilling out with Chris Evans.

And this one, Alan, is best pals with Gary fucking Linekar. Jesus.

Dunno who won in the end – don’t really care – but I reckon whoever it was is probably sat there right now with a beak full of caviar.

Guess it’s just who you know.

    Bri – can’t believe you weren’t asked. just goes to show how clicky those so called celebs are.
    how about you get back at them and organise your own Pigeon Relief race ? I could probably get some of the locals here to wing their way up. if it’s a diverse multi-cultural event I could round up a couple of doves, a magpie and a song thrush as well. don’t think the woodpigeon could fly that far – he’s one weighty dude, but maybe he can get a discount fare on the c2c line.

    Brian, ffs. do you *want* to hang out with the likes of Davina McCall, Chris Evans and Gary Linekar? you are way too good for those C listers. Wake up to yourself, man. They prolly didn’t ask because they thought you had a life.

    Shocking! You are the biggest pigeon star! Bet Pam and the like dont have their own website. Chshhhh! Trev wasnt asked either, but thats probably cuz hes a fat lazy git who would probably get a taxi home instead of flying. Still, nice to be asked isnt it?

    RoooRoooo: Probably coz Gary was way too busy with The World Cup. Fair enough. Obv so busy he didn’t get round to clearing up… not so fair enough!

    Essex Girl: Love it! Pigeon Relief! May build it into the whole fly-by thing… be great to get magpies and robins involved. Tbh all woodpigeons are greedy fat bastards – normally pretty moody too so prob wouldn’t get into it. We could get a couple of real celebrity racers along – mainly for the PR…
    Your pal Bri P

    Mumsie: Nice thought! I reckon doing my own version would be loads better anyway. You’re right too – who gives a shit about a pigeon who hangs out with Chris Evans?! Prob only does it for the free spinnies.
    Your pal Bri P

    Elf Mandinio: Reckon Trev would be up for Pigeon Relief tho? Maybe we could strap him to one of the racers??
    Your pal Bri

    Haha yeah, he could be carried my two large crows, if they are strong enough to carry such a fat pigeon!
