This is a question Have you ever been rude to a celebrity?

Whilst at school we had a field trip to the Ironbridge Gorge museum. Oddly enough kids TV presenter Johnny Ball happened to pick the same day to make a visit. We were rather excited and crowded round asking questions. Johnny took this rather well and held an impromptu lecture. This was all fun and games until a kid at the back threw a small rock at his head. Silence fell for a moment then Mr Ball blew a gasket and did the whole "no one is leaving until I get a confession" routine. Er.. typing this out makes me feel rather sorry for the chap. Anyway - can you beat that?

Thought of a couple more....
While doing work experience in the publicity department at the Leadmill in Sheffield, I answered the phone to one Richey Edwards from the Manic's.

I had spoken to James Dean Bradfield earlier in the week, and he was a very nice chap. (This was before they were really famous) Anyway Richey eventually gave the "Do you know who I am?" speech, as he was not getting the answers that he wanted. So I answered promptly, that yes I knew who he was, that his fellow band member was much more polite and they would probably get more help if he called.

He told that he could get me fired.

Me: Doubt it mate, I am student working here for nowt, so it would make it very difficult to get me fired then, wouldn't it?

I hung up before I could hear his reply.

As I hung up on him, I was fully expecting to be given my marching orders (it would have been worth it!) But they all started clapping and saying that they had all spoken to him on different occasions and wished that they could do what I had just done, but they were employees. They never told anyone else, as I would probably have been in trouble. Very cool people, and no mistake.
