Really? well then good for him. Personally, I hate to see animals used as part of entertainment, it's just not right in my book.
Mind you I also hate to see rediculous programmes like that celeb Jungle garbage and The Word where they use/used insects to intimidate the "guests", many of which get killed or injured.
They are living creatures no matter what.

@ SantaFefan
a big thumbs up Smile
Normally people don't agree with me on this sort of thing, especially if it's 'just' insects/ for 'celebrity' shows etc

I take a bit of stick over my "protective" ways! from friends and staff alike but who cares! God helps anybody who stands on a creepy crawly around me!

I do a lot of maintenance and small building work at my place here and this issue surfaces a lot. I've nearly finished boarding in the underside of a large balcony but I'm holding back until a baby pigeon is able to fly out! Laughing ( insults invited! Very Happy )
wish it would hurry up! Shocked

Why aren't there more people out there like you?

PS do you happen to be vegetarian/vegan by any chance?

No, I'm not vegetarian although it wouldn't take too much to make me so.
I'm ashamed to say I fall into the catagory which blanks the fact that the meat from the store was once walking around.

I like meat too Nat, particularly a fillet steak.... but now and then I think about it and it can put me off.
Maybe the first indication for me was not eating pork scratchings or any fat.. (yuk)
Pork would be easy for me to give up and even though I'm a grown man, the sight of a hogroast can trouble me for weeks.

or King Prawns....

Definitely no kidney, liver or , I can hardly write it.... tongue.. Eeeeuugghhhh!

I don't eat meat or poultry, however, do eat dairy products, free range eggs and fish. It's not that I don't like meat, I just disagree with factory farming and the treatment of animals as a product and not a living creature. I would find it immensely difficult to be vegan and admire anyone who has the resolve to stick to their beliefs.

I have no issue with Russell Brand. I think he's unique for Radio 2. A good addition to the station, in my opinion.

Just had Brand on for 5 minutes (10.30pm); I think the show is utter garbage. Of course blokes 'getting their willies out' was the subject, and Brand just laughs at himself all the time, I dread to think what the other 115 minutes are like. Evil or Very Mad

I turnedon Radio 2 a few minutes too early to listen to Bob Harriss, & had the misfortune to hear that screeching, hysterical imbecile, Russell Brand. He was boasting about how he does heroin all the time (yet again!) & laughing like a hiyena in that idiotic camp way of his.
I revise my thinking about Jade. Compared to Russell, she might almost seem an inteligent, well-rounded human being! Embarassed
Get Russell off the radio! If they must have trash, put Jade on!

Well, if JW could be suspended for having an addiction, then the same rules should apply re RB - even if he was trying to be funny....

As I've said before <somewhere> they love him in this house - I think he's about as funny as a boil on the bum.

Having a boil on the bum would seem a very good description of the way it feels listening to Russell B

Especially as Johnny Walker never advocated the use of Cocaine or mentioned it in any way on air. It was just a habit he got into in his private life that sme journo found out about.
In the case of RB, he is forever boasting about his Heroin use, like a silly little child. There is much more reason to suspend RB than there was JW. Besides the fact that JW is a good broadcaster & RW is not

I submitted a complaint on Sunday, October 7th following Russell Brand's attack on Paul Hollingdale the night before. I have still yet to receive a response from Radio 2 management.

Clearly, Lesley Douglas condones her staff to piss take and attack others. The Sunday before was Radio 2's 40th birthday. Paul Hollingdale returned to host a Breakfast Special only to be ridiculed by the loudmouthed, foulmouthed Man In Drag.

Just goes to show what Lesley Douglas must think of yesteryear presenters.

He's appearing on Steve Wright next week to promote his new book. Its amazing how these celebs bring books out and havn't really done much too put in the book..

Chris Moyles is already on his second book. It's an ego drive.. Shocked

Mrs G was unwell last night and went to bed early. The upstairs radio is usually tuned to Radio 2 ready for the morning. She was unfortunate to listen to Russell Brand and, quite frankly, found him offensive. This person should not be on Radio 2 on a Saturday.

Shame on you Cherskiy, he would probably give "Ex-druggies & tea leaves" a bad name Wink

He even plugged his book at the start of his show - something forbidden by the BBC Charter and which even Wogan can't get away with so blatantly.

I saw Brand on Loose Women yesterday afternoon, they were all wetting themselves over him Razz

He was well-behaved and accusing the ladies of being rude with innuendos, which they often are on that show Smile

I watched Russell Brand on HIGNFY and thought he was excellent!
I laughed when he had to leave the set for a pee! Laughing
Like with Ross, I felt Jack Dee felt a little intimidated by this pesky newcomer.
As I've said before, I can't be doing with excessive swearing but when he's behaved like on this show, I think he's genuinely entertaining.

I don't know why either Laughing
When he was on Ross' show, he said he had a mouse living in his hair for a while! maybe he's hoping to attract a Robin or something...

I thought he was terrible on HIGNFY - the guy could be funny but he uses too many words, tries to be clever, and is always seeking attention. He was really out-of-his-depth on Friday, and I hated that self-satisfied smile he made after every "joke"

I get the feeling the Sunday Mirror's TV columnist isn't too keen on him. Have a look at http://www.sundaymirror.co.uk/showbiz/tv/ then scroll down to the 'Gimme 5' section, paragraph 2.

Has anyone ever seen him and Nigella Lawson in the same room?

Every time he's on TV, I'm picturing him in a big frock, eating spicey peaches (blame Harry Hill for the last).
