I have to set the record straight.


Germaine Greer is NOT my mother. She just looks similar and my Mum has read all her books. Another difference is that my mother dances Flamenco and has never said "Every Australian has a little boat" or posed naked.

Well that's sorted then.

Phew !

And Alf Garnet is not my Dad. Just so you know.

Lilith said...

I am so glad E-K...:-)

The Hitch said...

ps pa hitch shagged her
just to remind you all

Nick Drew said...

A propos of your Justin Timberlake post last week, L, did you see Polly's latest outburst? (Guardian, natch)

"... his own besetting sin - cowardice. Why else would he write a wistful book about the courage of others?"

ah well

Now hell it hath no fury
like a jilted Polly Toynbee ...

Barnsley Bill said...

Greer is an aussie and you are a kiwi (see, I have been paying attention)

Lilith said...

Hitch, your Dad never shagged my Mum, so there. But I have to say he can name drop his notches ;-) Must have been a bit of a charmer in his time.

Lilith said...

Hi Nick :-) Poor Polly. What is left for her but to move to Sweden?

Lilith said...

Well spotted Bill. I can't do Greer. I don't know if it is her politics or her physical similarity to my mother. I was born a feminist, but Germaine just makes me wish I was a man.

Barnsley Bill said...

She is just a big mouth. Of late she has become a sad caricature of herself. She basically earned herself a fairdinkum fatwa over her comments about steve irwin.

Anybody remember The Kenny Everett Show ? There was a sketch on that called "Big Scouse, Little Scouse".
Kenny was Little Scouse and Ms Greer was Big Scouse.("Big Gob" may have been more appropiate).
I can`t remember the jist of the particular sketch, It probably wasn`t very funny, or I would have remembered it.
Who could forget Kenny Everett`s "Brother Lee Love" and "Cupid Stunt"?....Classic !
Ms.Greer had a big "Afro" hairstyle, in her Big Scouse, Little Scouse sketch and wore outrageous gear, including micro mini's, etc.

The Hitch said...

yup lilith
charm not looks
He is an arsehole but funny.
Gets a chap a long way (+:
Luckily old ma Hitch "was" also great looking , funny AND intelligent, probably explains my magnetism (+:

Philipa said...

Blogging bollocks? Greer has bollocks? Actually I can believe that.

Didn't she publish pictures of her um... 'lady jane'?

electro-kevin said...

Her 'Lady Jane bollocks' was that Pippy ?

I'd love to have seen that - Germaine Greer go fuck herself.

grumpy granny said...

You should have run a caption comp too with that harridanous(?) pic

Lilith said...

She seems to have something irritating to say about just about everything Bill.

Trubes, I have no memory of that ;-)

Hitch, it must be hard being so hot, you being a man of morals and principle an all ;-)

She did Pip. My Mum didn't.

You can see her do it every time she opens her mouth E-K.

GG...too many options :-)

Trubes said...

Ooer.. Lilith. It seems that i`m the only onehere in Trubeland that remembers that Sketch with Kenny Everett and Germain Greer. I`ll have to check now... Did I dream this ? Eeerm....must be the Morphine...

gg said...

Trubes: Don't specifically recall that episode. My favourite Kenny was his hilarious impersonation of Rod Stewart in those outrageous tight leopardskin trousers.

Trubes said...

'Nice Time', Granada TV 1968. A show hosted by Kenny Everett and co- hosted by Germain Greer. This may have been before the Kenny Everett Show and perhaps, only screened in 'Granadaland'.

g.g. I too, loved Kenny`s 'Rod Stewart' impression. I`d forgotten that one, he was such a funny man, 'tis a shame he died so prematurely.

Johnny Huxley said...

Personally, I've always had a soft spot for Ms Greer.

My 3 year old daughter just sauntered past as I was looking at the Lilith blog, pointed at Germaine and announced.. "It's Nana!". I had to phone my Mum to tell her. Being of a similar vintage to La Greer and rather a fan she was quite flattered!

Lilith said...

Johnny, was it seeing this?

Lilith said...

Bless your little babe, Fleet! My daughter said the same thing at about the same age when she got a fleeting glimpse of Christopher Walken in King of New York.

Ai YAH

I dunno if it's because we are Geminis Hitch, but it's a handy hook to hang it on :-))))

FFS what have I said to you about backing away from the computer before you hit the delete button? I didn't even have time to link your last two blogs, Hitch.

Johnny Huxley said...

re. Dennis,
Those gorillas are always the harbingers.
Maybe it's a Lenten doo-da. I wonder if he will come back again under some other guise?

Lilith said...

Johnny, I will miss Dennis but I fear for Bunty's poor heart.

Johnny Huxley said...

When the heart suffers, it no doubt saves the ass from that fate.

(Maybe Dennis and Hitch have to share an old Epson between them, and there is not room for them both at any one time?)

Lilith said...

It would be truly awful to suffer haemorrhoids and a broken heart simultaneously, Johnny.

Scroblene said...

You're right Lilith!

It is him ;0)

Ho Yus!

(Oak and Ivy)...
