This is a question Shit Claims to Fame II

My car was in the Specsavers advert with the old lady and the loud stereo. Not me. My stupid blue Nissan Micra. Tell us about your brushes with fame.

shit pun
I once made a very poor model of a motorway in the South East of England.

So poor was it that it made headline news in several local newspapers in the area.

That is how I got some shit clay M2 fame.

fuck yeah.

Super shit
I regularly see Jarred Christmas, "star" of some Pot Noodle adverts a few years back and occasional Mock The Week irritant in my local Waitrose, as he lives in the area. He gets a lot of people looking at him as if to say "I know that bloke's face from somewhere, but I can't place where", and he loves it, the Kiwi twat.

England vs Germany
Last home international game before the iconic twin towers got demolished for an arch. I was one of the 80,000 that was there to watch England lose 1-0 and probably appeared on TV at some point or another.

When I was 7
I went to see Roy Castles Christmas pantomime at the fairfiled Halls in Croydon.

At one point, he wandered around the audience getting kids to sing a note (one each). He would thrust his mic in their faces, and they would croak out whatever they felt like.

Yup, that's right. He did it to the kid sitting next to me. I reckon I have a castle number of max 4.

Royal heavy right foot
My ex wife typed out the summons under conditions of strict secrecy for the Princess Royal, Anne, who was the first member of the Royal Family to be prosecuted for speeding. Must have done it right as she pleaded guilty, but fame doesn't get much more tenuous than this.

An Austrian family I used to know
lived on a very large boat. One time I mentioned that I was planning to visit California. You know how it is - if you're going anywhere near someone's distant relative they always expect you to bump into them. Well these guys started banging on about this relative and how successful and respected he is. Before I left, they begged me to pass on family heirloom if I did bump into the guy.
It was a bit of an odd thing - a lion tooth on a leather thong to wear around the neck. Caught by great uncle something or other in 1802 type thing.

Of course, as was inevitable, the guy was just standing around waiting for someone at the airport. So itwas that I found myself saying "here's your ship clan's tooth, Arn"

well everyone else was doing it miss

I have been interviewed live on Al Jazeera news ...
because they couldn't find any other scientists who would agree to discuss some new cloaking thing or other.

Oh, and once I passed the lead singer of Killing Miranda in a stairwell, and congratulated him on his most recent performance. "Thank you", he said.

Mictoboy reminds my that one day when I was doing admin for an investment bank,
JK Rowling sent me a cheque for £250'000. She'd also sent similar cheques to about five of my colleagues.

She must be minted.

The rhythm guitarist in my band
runs the Iron Maiden fanclub, and is Steve Harris' ex-brother-in-law. His son deps for our drummer occasionally, and he is the drummer with The World On Fire, Voodoo Six and Hi-On Maiden (who came to our wedding reception).

Well you asked for shit...

Famous enough to have a stalker
I got an email via my obsolete technology website, from someone who was a bit of an intense fanboi type. I was happy to play the role of all-knowing sensei to his grasshopper, until one email where he casually mentioned

"Oh, and I see you on the train sometimes"

I took the bus that night...

I once dunna poo...
...and it was shaped exactly like two sea-shells, clasped together.

As I had never before experienced such a 'Brad', I called an expert to cast his opinion over this strange turn of events before I flushed it.

Bizarrely, he suggested that I set up an agricultural concern, and that I use this ‘prototype’ to breed other, likewise lumps of my Dame Thora.

His quote was: "That’s a shit clam to farm"

Have you been injured in a slip or fall at work?
Last year I had an accident working slipping on a freshly mopped bathroom floor (no warning signs, you see) and landed breaking my arm against the toilet bowl which was choc-a-block full of choc-o-logs.

The company I work for is wholly owned by Gene Anthony Ray and Lori Singer.

When I went to the ambulance chasing lawyers they said

"Wow, that's one shit claim to Fame's former cast members"

Barrel bottom scraped
