Celebs beat God for the kids

Children under 10 think being a celebrity is the "very best thing in the world" but do not think quite as much of God, a survey reveals today. As I said in the Spacey debate, celebrity is the religion of our time (so obvious I blush) - I may launch a literary competition all about slebs. I shall seek a prize worthy of such an occasion. So that list in full.

The best thing:
1. Being a Celebrity
2. Good Looks
3. Being Rich
4. Being Healthy
5. Pop Music
6. Families
7. Friends
8. Nice Food
9. Watching Films
10. Heaven/God

And who is the most famous person in all the world?
1. God
2. President Bush
3. Madonna
4. Jesus
5. Father Christmas
6. The Queen
7. Tony Blair
8. Simon Cowell
9. Sharon Osbourne
10. Britney Spears

What Spacey debate ? ;-)

Beware of tendentious reading, sweetheart. The connection of the 2 polls reveals that "being God" is the new generation's latest word.

God help us !

No, the most famous person is God but the most desired life condition is being a celebrity. I've been there, sugar.

Come with me, young Jedi, I'll teach you the voluptuous arcanes of syllogism and sophistry ! ;-)

No, celebrity is the most desired condition and God the most famous person, according to the poll.

If celebs are gods, then God can be a "famous person", and dreaming to be God is not forbidden. Just a little example of zeitgeist and modern sophistry...

You know what ? Arcateasing is currently my favorite game. And unexpectedly it works ! :-)

Celebs are lower case g gods except at the startof a sentence when it gets confusing. Upper case g gods (or Gods) are up there in the sky and are noted for their miraculous works except when you're Madonna who has the power to turn vegetarians into mink-coat wearers. Some will say that lower case g gods must be Gods when they're onboard an airliner but obvious means of flight doesn't count.

Ah, that's a little better, I appreciate.
