John Waters take III

News just in - a John Waters joke has been sighted!!

John Waters take II

Public Inquiry quotes John Waters on David Beckham. Now, while I think that questioning someones' psychological balance is a cheap trick, I think that John Waters is showing tremendous arrogance - he thinks that he alone can explain David Beckhams' behaviour.

John Waters versus bloggers

John Waters has a thing against bloggers. Chalk it down summarised his comments, as has Daragh O Brien.

Sarah Carey also covers some of John Waters sweeping comments.

Now to add my own cĂșpla pingin - John Waters has long had a habit of making sweeping statements about other topics, so why am I not surprised when he does the same about bloggers? I don't think that all bloggers are brilliant intellectual or literary rolemodels any more than all journalists are, but John Waters really takes the biscuit from what I've seen. Yes, there is rubbish online, but it's a medium, not a newspaper - you can pick and choose what to read.
