So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

From comments on the DM

I think Abdullah Ibrahim Mohammed al Saleemi Bisha Mohammad's warm tribute said it for all of us:

Nice to see ya to see ya!!!

Not the first time today that Sir Jim'll has been confused with Brucie.

Tight old bastard, what a rotten trick to play. He was loaded.

Yep. I thought so too.

I just watched BBC News at 10 and "a fan" placed some flowers outside his house.Just the one fan (middle aged woman)

I saw that too, noticed they said he was one of Britain's "well known celebrities" as opposed to "much loved" which is how they refer to Brucie.

Celebrities are well-known by definition, no?

They may have said entertainers

He will haunt the dreams of children forever.

In what way was Savile entertaining?

The same way a particularly nasty horror film is.

ChachaChazz - 29 Oct 2011 23:00:12 (#148 of 17322)

About 99.8% of children worldwide would draw a picture of Jimmy Saville if asked to draw a picture of "the nasty man".

I bet it wasn't just the combination of roller-coaster motion and sticky fairground fare that was discomfiting those Boy Scouts.

I wrote in to Jim'll Fix It when I was a girl, asking to ride showjumper Eddie Macken's horse Boomerang, or possibly Pele, anyway whichever one it was who kept winning everything at the time. I wanted of course to make him (Eddie, not Jimmy) fall in love with me and make me his wife. My only other hope of being Mrs Macken was to become a successful showjumper myself.

I didn't get on Jim'll Fix It and I didn't get to marry Eddie Macken.

#149 - I know the feeling mancurse. (it was Boomerang).

mancurse - 29 Oct 2011 23:10:43 (#152 of 17322)

Pele was great too though.

mancurse - 29 Oct 2011 23:12:10 (#153 of 17322)

Did you love Eddie too, Anti? I learned much later that he was a right one for shagging around - we probably could have had him, you know.

Antimatter - 29 Oct 2011 23:15:24 (#154 of 17322)

I grew up in Aylesbury too, and my mum was an occupational therapist at Stoke Mandeville. She met JS on many occasions, and said he was a very difficult person to talk to, but the children really loved him. He just didn't seem able to relate to adults, well, live ones anyway.

No mention of necrophilia, but then MaA is someone who doesn't believe in blow jobs either.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 23:18:49 (#155 of 17322)

Anti, he sounds like Micheal Jackson, not being able ie living in a child's world

I dont' like Brucie either
