Gordon in the morning: Piss weak

What's going on here?

Yes, that's Gordon Smart and Alex James pretending to wee.

Why, though?

In God's name why?
Blur's Alex James lets it all out in the bogs ...for a TV show
For a TV show? Really?

Erm, no. It's for a web video. Tell us more, Gordon.
OVER the years I’ve heard some great stories from readers and rock stars alike about the most famous people they’ve stood beside at a urinal.
Really? I've heard a lot of stories like that, but they always are "I was having a pee, and next to me was Captain out of Captain And Tennille." I don't think I've ever heard any story that goes much beyond that. But carry on.
So an online rock’n’roll TV show has started chronicling those tales in a segment called Slash Gordon.
Oh, really?
Check out the new This Feeling, in association with Guinness, on The Sun’s website from 1pm today to see BLUR’s ALEX JAMES telling his story to me in the bogs.
Really? Guinness are sponsoring a thing about pissing? Did they think through how that's going to help their brand values?

Still, congratulations to Gordon for coming up with a segment that actually manages to exclude the possibility of women taking part by design. It's almost like it's a forum for hoary rock cliches.
Up-and-coming rock star EUGENE McGUINNESS and THE VIEW also compete to see who can throw a TV out a window the furthest. It’s the rock version of Top Gear’s Star In A Reasonably Priced Car.
Yes, hoary old cliches.

The View. In 2012. *Only* in The Sun. Thank fuck.

Surely the cliche is throwing a TV through the window, rather than out of it?

I can't imagine John Bonham clicking the latch on a window before carefully unplugging a television and popping it out, checking that no cars below could get damaged.

I suppose George Michael is a pop star who had a memorable experience in a urinal, but I'm guessing he won't be invited.
