Pledge “foolthecelebrity”

"I will embarrass any celebrity I meet by sticking my hand on my nose, wiggling my fingers and blow a rasberry, instead of shaking their hand which is what they were expecting but only if 100 other people bored of celebrity worship will do the same."

— Ray Hewitt, The Phantom Celeb Stinger

Deadline to sign up by: 1st September 2006

Are you, like me, bored to tears with the modern tragedy known as 'Celebrity Worship'??? Then fight back!!!

When you offer them a hand to shake pull it back at the last minute, stick your fingers on your nose and blow a rasberry!!!

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

Comments on this pledge

  • Blaming celebs for the hero- worshippers is like blaming birds for birdwatchers. Ray (and every supporter of his motion) is a sandwich short of a picnic - and probably desires celebrity for themselves without even realising it.

  • Arthur Hay, 9th Marquess of Tweeddale and Bill Oddie (both renowned Ornithologists, and by default, both 'Goodies') - compared to the sycophantic gits who huddle, in rainsoaked misery, alongside the red carpet of tosh. Shame on you Jonathan Clark... Shame on you.

  • I pledge to do this, does Kevin count as a celeb?
    Britney Spears, 15 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
  • Celebrities, when it comes down to it, are people, and deserve no more and *no less* respect than anybody else. What you're proposing is as disrespectful and distasteful as the footage on the telly last night of the paparazzi chasing Richard E Grant around while he was just trying to do a bit of shopping with his wife. The people who *buy* the celebrity magazines, on the other hand, are beneath contempt and deserve no respect at all.
  • Let us hope that the paparazzi continue their wonderful pursuit of hunting down Thespian gits wherever they blight ordinary lives with their sycophantic entourages, and obsiquous lackeys! And using the asterisk to quote a point Mr Hoskins, makes you a *Git*... allegedly!!!

  • are u willing to put us in jail ?
  • good luck! I sort of agree with one of the comments above - I'm always felt that for eg- mr shaky hand man was wrong but wasn't sure why (this was a pretend interviewer guy on british TV who would see how long he could shake hands with celebs for before they walked off)

  • Oh woe is me... I live in the land of the celebritywannabee. I fear my faithful friends that this pledge is doomed to fail. If I should fail think only this of me - I'll do it anyway!!!
