Celebrities: is there anything they don’t know?
Posted by at 8.04pm | 1 response | Uncategorised

There’s a bit in Back to the Future where Marty McFly, having travelled back in time 30 years, is trying to convince a sceptical Doc Brown that he is from 1985:-

Doc Brown: Tell me, “future boy”, who is president in the United States in 1985?
Marty McFly: Ronald Reagan.

Doc Brown: Ronald Reagan? The actor?! Who’s Vice President? Jerry Lewis?

Which neatly brings us to the caption I never thought I’d see on the news: “ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER (California Governor Elect)”

I love it when celebrities go into politics, mainly because it’s usually so funny to watch. Thank you, Arnold, for giving David Letterman and Conan O’Brien enough material to keep them going for several years.

    Ooh, I watched BTTF yesterday. And BTTF2 today. That’s what you get when the trilogy DVD box set is only £15 in Woolies.
