What is your most trivial claim to fame?

I might have started a small meme about Hardcore Holly taking over Chris Benoit's title lineage. My wife also might have started a much bigger meme about using a panel from the comic three-word phrase. If she didn't start it, she was almost certainly the first person to use it in its popular context, because she did so about twenty minutes after it was posted, enough time for me to cut it out in photoshop.

My Aunt was an animator on short-lived 1990s claymation "Gogs". I think she did work on Asterix & Obelix too.

Lived in Wales down the road from the lead singer of Stereophonics, Kelly whatever. Said he was a tosser.

I was on a Radio One quiz with Clive Warren at about two in the morning when I worked nights.  It was one quiz per night with the best of the week getting the main prize on the Friday. I led until the last day when I was beaten by a ten year old. Definitely a fix.

Did get a bunch of CDs as a runner up though including Depeche Mode greatest hits (yay) and Mmmmm Bop (not so yay).

I once gave Jimmy Hill directions to Sincil Bank. I gave him very specific instructions about which lane he needed to be in at the roundabout, and the fucker still cut me up.

I portrayed a professional footballer for a game show that was recorded in Scotland for Japanese TV featuring then Celtic player Shunsuke Nakamura shortly after he scored a belter of a free kick in the Champions League to beat Man Utd 1-0 at Celtic Park.

The bass player from The Stiffs is a regular in my Mum's pub.

I also took a piss in the next urinal over from Steve Davis when he did an exhibition at our local snooker club. Well, I was there first so he took a piss next to me. In the same club I watched the Wales Belgium Euro semi final with John Parrott & Ken Doherty. Like all sat next to each other nattering about the match.

I once got beat up in a swimming pool in Turkey by Richard Fleeshman and a friend. His mom Jackie Corkhill didn't come over to apologise but the father did.  

Me and a couple of friends naturally spotted Kendall from Love Island and her sister on a plane in 2012 and began speaking to them on the hotel transfer to Aiya Napa.  We met up with them a couple times over the week and went on the strip together. 

A member of the band "Embrace" lives across from me.

My mate's mum did the Daz Doorstep Challenge. They proper broke kayfabe shooting it though. My mate's mum had been given about a week's notice that they were coming and Shane Richie was sat on my wheelie bin for ages whilst they prepared to shoot  Nothing like it appeared on the ad itself where they, "surprised," people.

It's still real to me, dammit.

My mate battered the footballer Troy Deeney when they were both teenagers. He was in my little sister’s year at school and I used to see him on my road all the time because he was seeing a girl who lived a few doors down from ours. The same girl he ended up marrying, having kids with and then leaving for some instagram model. My dad always said he was a good lad but I always thought him a cocky, gobby twat which is why he got a few slaps off my mate. It was a bit surreal seeing him in an Anthony Joshua documentary a while back, I must admit.

I played Gavin Rosedale's guitar when Bush played Newcastle about 19 years ago. 

By played, I mean strummed three notes during Greedy Fly. 

Also called Justin Hawkings from the Darkness a cunt to his face after he annoyed me one night. 

The world does balance itself out though, as Ginger from The Wildhearts called me one a few years later.

Gogs was fucking great, Wales has been known for years for animation, but I had a bone to pick with it.

 

Gogs, in Welsh Parlance, are North Walians. So its was Cavemen,being called North Walians, speaking jibberish.

 

Fuming.

I once saw Steve Bould's cock on my work experience. That was fun.
