Michael Jackson

Marge: This is the worst thing you've ever done!
Homer: You say that so much, it's lost all meaning.

And with that I introduce another new, half-baked category, which will no doubt shortly die a quiet and not unwelcome death: Cliché Watch.

I'll get the ball rolling with this fairly topical one, seeing as the Paedo- sorry – Prince of Pop's trial started last week:

"You can say what you like about Jacko, but he's a fantastic dancer."

So, am I alone here or what? Maybe it's just cos I've heard it said a lot, often, oddly, by middle-aged, working class men; is it merely a sufficiently random coincidence to merit a mention on these hallowed pages, or can I accord the line full Cliché status?

  1. Jeez, being annoyed at cliches – soo cliched nowadays.

    In fact, surely "soo cliched" is one of the greatest cliches ever?

  2. And with that, my half-baked category went and ate itself, but not before I managed, with all my might, to post two more clichés for your enjoyment or otherwise. Thanks a lot, Westbrook.

    The question is, now that the category has eaten itself, will it become twice the size, or disappear?

  3. You see when you really think about it this is a question that needs to be answered. I say disappear.

  4. I say that dancing doesn't make anyone less of a paedophile if they're still touching kiddies.

  5. Tell that to the middle-aged, working class men of this country.
