My names is James Randi and I am the scourge of the hucksters and grifters who prey on an unsuspecting and sadly stupid public to make a quick million bucks or so. Hey! All these dudes have to do to make a quick million bucks is prove to me beyond scientific conjecture that what they're doing is on the level. Hey, but guess what: they can't. And why can't they? Because they are THIEVES AND CHARLATANS and their only purpose is to get public exposure which allows me to get public exposure and allows me to raise like millions and millions from the unsuspecting and sadly stupid public for the James Randi Foundation. This foundation does a lot of good. Recently it built an olympic sized swimming pool on a huge estate: my estate.
Anyway, so as you good folks don't get drawn in and ripped off by these THIEVES AND CHARLATANS, here's what you gotta do. Have a look at their credentials:
Uri Geller: has big sofa, supported Reading Soccer Club and psychically willed them into the Premier Division of Soccerness. Or rather his didn't. Only as soon as Uri Geller stopped willing Reading Soccer Club into the Premier Soccer Division did Reading achieve the feat. Friend of Michael Jackson (in the same way as Eugene Landy is a friend of Brian Wilson).
Mystic Meg: shit reporter on the United Kingdom's The Sun newspaper who filled in for the astrologer person and ended up making a career out of being a Rick Wakeman lookalike.
Marcel Marceauxxxx: don't trust this guy, he don't talk enough. Pol Pot didn't talk much either. QED
Keanu Reeves: not a bona fide psychic. Not a bona fide actor.
David Ikea: this guy is interesting being as he was a soccer star for Coventry City, once of the biggest soccer teams in the world. Actually he isn't.
The other people I don't know, but you can be damned sure of one thing: they are all THIEVES AND CHARLATANS!
Not one of these dudes can "feel" whether Supergrass or the Manic Street Preachers was the better band, only science can prove that conclusively. And here's how in my patented Randi Three-Steps-To-Prove-Anything theory. You look at the chart positions and add them up so that they make sense a bit by awarding more points for a higher chart position (otherwise bands that had never charted, like say Abba, would be the best), then you subract a factor of 10 from that score for Welshness if you are not from Welshpool and add a factor of 10 if you are Welshist, then you listen to their records and decide whether any of them had the qualities to make them premierist soccer players. The one with the most soccr playing and bike riding in their videos is clearly the more talented and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is clearly a THIEF AND A CHARLATAN.
Then that proves it, Nicky Wire captained the under 15s at soccer for Wales and had the offer of a trial at Arsenal ergo the MSP are better than Supergrass.
I'm glad that is finally cleared up
And sometimes I ride on bus x82, say what!
