Quote from: kalowski on September 09, 2021, 12:26:00 PMI always just try to remember which one was in The Departed.
Quote from: idunnosomename on September 09, 2021, 11:16:37 AMHe is an incompetent cruel cunt but this seems like a genuine mistake mixing up personal brief meetings over Zoom with two young sportsmen who do look quite similar (by that garun comp - shape of nose and everything - they look more similar than his shitty racist Spitting Image puppet). It's not like he brought it up, it's careless but whatever.
Quote from: Shit Good Nose on September 08, 2021, 11:14:34 PMI can't answer that question honestly cos it's never happened to me. I know SO little about sport (and literally actively avoid it) that I couldn't say with conviction I wouldn't do that. BUT the exact same thing could - and probably would - happen if we were talking about two white sportsball people, even if they looked completely different."Oh, I met Bongledon mid striker Kevin Mckekikkin to talk about pork futures the other day." "Actually, sir, you met with Norris Woows of Wolvinghampton Wanderers. Kevin Mckekikkin was about more access to porn for school children." etc.I don't think I can adequately put across how little I know and care about sport and everyone involved with it.
Quote from: icehaven on September 09, 2021, 11:50:09 AMSeriously though I get Mark Wahlberg and his brother mixed up. I know one was in New Kids On The Block and then that one's younger brother became a rapper, and now one of them is Mark Wahlberg the famous actor but it took me ages to work out which one was which.
Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on September 09, 2021, 03:38:40 PMI can remember that Mark Wahlberg is the brother of the NKOTB guy (Donnie?) and was a rapper in a group called "Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch" because I remember Smash Hits taking the piss because he used to drop trou during gigs and they once captioned the photo "Marky Mark shows off his funky bunch".
Quote from: Shit Good Nose on September 08, 2021, 10:46:12 PMAll tories do look the same though, sooooooo.......Mind you, having absolutely no knowledge of or interest in sport I must admit I'd be very hard pressed to tell the difference between any sport people. Literally the only reason I know of Rashford is from the school meals stuff and little Nose's school did a big thing about it. If it weren't for that, I could be stood right next to him in a shop and wouldn't have a fucking clue who he is. Never heard of this rugby bloke until now.Without wanting to defend Williamson (and this really is more of a general thing), it does annoy me massively when people are put out if you don't know who a certain celebrity or sport person is. My manager is a huge football fan and Tootinghams Hotspike is his favourite team, and he always gets a mild grump about the fact I don't give a single shit how a particular football team is doing and I only know of that one with the chin through listening to Athletico Mince (which, I daresay, isn't a very accurate representation of him).Bah.
Quote from: Kankurette on September 09, 2021, 03:56:45 PMI just GIS'd Itoje and he looks nothing like Rashford. I do have an unfair advantage, though, due to living near the Rashford mural and being very familiar with his face. And liking football, though I don't do rugby.
Quote from: beanheadmcginty on September 09, 2021, 01:10:44 PMWhen I was a nipper I used to not be able to tell the difference between George Michael and Princess Diana. I suppose the woke snowflakes want to cancel me now don't they?
Quote from: Johnny Yesno on September 11, 2021, 05:23:37 PMI get Neville Southall, Gary Neville and Gareth Southgate mixed up but I think that might be for a different reason.
Quote from: Hobo With A Shit Pun on September 09, 2021, 03:37:38 PMI very , very briefly gave a Tory the benefit of the doubt - shudder - when I first heard about this. What happened was, I've been primed by a mate with massive face blindness who often sits watching films with me and demanding greater diversity in Hollywood for reasons other than anti-racism, i.e. so he knows who people are. Apparently, the biggest problem is "skinny white blonde women"; Even if the cast is a bunch of white dudes, there'll generally be a good chance that one is the big white dude, one is the white dude with a beard, etc. But with female leads they can pile up women that he finds identical, and he gets confused.
