Fanny Waters, once again is being, as Twenty termed it – a fanny. Daragh O’Brien has a very good blog post (Edit: site is taking forever to load due to some script) on what Fanny was saying again on Newstalk this morning. Seems he demanded/decreed that Newstalk wheel some idiot blogger on to the show (we’re all idiots you see) so he can debate them. Fanny doesn’t read blogs but just knows that we are clueless and can’t string three sentences together. And once again his obsession with sex comes through with saying that most of the Internet is porn. Depends on what you search and look for Fanny.
Anyway, Fanny is probably upset that now anyone can be a crank and get a soapbox or a pulpit. The Internet is full of porn and it’s also full of headcases who write shitty lyrics to woeful songs. It’s hard to be unique on the Internet unless you have a specific niche, one which Fanny no longer has. His lot are a dime a doze. So should he be engaged? I think not. I think we should all talk about him and write about him but why give John the oxygen he craves? If he were a blogger (and I think he will be in time) we’d shun him by not linking to him. That’s the sting of online shunning. Delinking. Let him shout his challenges on Newstalk and give bloggers free advertising. I like Kevin Myers more anyway. He didn’t cry for Katy.
Also, we have a Fake Steve Jobs, I wonder can we have a Fake Fanny Waters? Edit: That was fast: Fanny Waters blog.
Super extra bonus edit: That’s Ireland on Fanny Waters from last year.
