Re: A good-natured jab at The Gentleman?

he is actually lampooning Tim Tebow ... using The Bowie as a vehicle ... it's very well done. by way of explanation for europeans and non sporty types ... from my FB page "this is really good. although my English friends may not understand. so for them - Tim Tebow is a Football player (the kind where they touch the ball with their hands and wear motorcylcle helmets) ... his team is in the playoffs for the Superbowl ... every time he makes a touchdown he kneels and prays to Jeeezus ... many suspect the Jeeezus is not very interested in football."
the only way this could have been better is if he had transitioned from the Ashes to Ashes swoop down straight into the Tebow prayer pose ... might have been to subtle for non Bowie freaks though.
I fucking hate all this Tebow coverage. Is his 15 minutes up yet? The hypocritical Christian Conservatives in America truly believe Tebow is son of god. Yeah.... sure, God wants people to skip church on Sunday to go to a football game, get drunk and get on one knee and pray every time Tebow throws a touchdown pass.
Thanks for explaining the joke iggyziggy, I feel it always adds to the experience when someone does that. I mean otherwise we'd all be too stupid to get it. So thanks, if it weren't for sages like you and Tom folks round here wouldn't know what to think.
jules ... i assume there a lot of people outside the states that have no idea what goes on in american football (i live here and don't give a shit about it) ... just as very few people here know who Rooney or Van Persie is. but thank you for ruining a light hearted, humorous thread anyway you sanctimonious prat.
Seriously, Jules, what's the deal here? Surely you are not getting real satisfaction from these inflammatory comments? This message board isn't even a huge audience for that kind of game, anyway.
Do you have a problem with the people here, or are you genuinely getting some kind of kick out of this? You are clearly an educated individual, but that makes it all the more confusing as to why you would waste your time with this silliness. Help me out here please.
I understood it was about Football hence the shirt and words BUT I'd not heard of Tebow who is obviously some hot shot yank football player ! I think having a pop at Iggyziggi is a bit uncalled for as really he was explaining to Sparkina that Bowie was the vehicle not the target ,perhaps Americans feel Bowie is closer to the heavens and can communicate Jesus ,I mean lets be honest even God probably wishes he was Bowie ?
The association of Mr. Bowie and Yank football is a pretty strange one - apart from the tight-fitting costumes and occasional mullet sightings. However, Mr. Fallon has done a Bowie impersonation for years.
Ah! Mr. Waite, the world of Magic is a mirror, wherein who sees muck is muck.
