My niece informed me that she is dating a boy. She also informed me that his dad is famous. Well. A famous person! Who could it be? A noted captain of industry? A celebrated author of books? A feted stalwart of broadcasting? A lauded performer of music? An honoured doctor of science?
“He makes videos of himself eating stuff on YouTube. He has one where he eats a jar of pickles, and another one where he eats a jar of Nutella. He makes a living from it.”
Wow! We really are living in the end times. I’m not sure what does my head in more. That someone can make a living eating a jar of something if they video tape it or that people spend their valuable time watching this or that doing this now apparently constitutes fame.
