    Mars And Parsley! Why Grovel To An Addled Brat? 


    “We all heard Greta,” Parkin told the Guardian. “Greta is right… “

    ..

    .

    Thus ranted a Man from Mars, the candy company, a flunkey echoing his boss, and isn’t it a sad sight to see, all this bowing and scraping to The Addled Swede Brat?

    •  ..

      The Addled Swede Brat.

    =========

    There was a time that, whenever we thought of Mars Bars, we thought of the delicious Marianne Faithfull.

    … 

    ==
    She was a ‘close friend’ of at least one member of the Rolling Stones and we teen fan-fellows envied Mick Jagger ferociously.
    Among other interesting aspects of their ‘scene’ was an urban legend (vigorously denied by all concerned!) concerning Mars Bars…

    Mars-Bar Marianne Disses Brits -‘Dreadful People!’ .

    …but alas, her physical appeal was not at all matched by cerebral prowess, in terms of which, arguably, she did NOT age well!

    Nevertheless, I’ll wager that, even as a near octogenarian, she must be more attractive than the grotty grumpy Swede, whose mental health is surely not being improved…

      I remember her!
      I never thought hought about her brain-power, too much else on our minds.
      That Swede dwarf gets less attractive every year, and I do not mean just the rubbish she talks

        Sorry, Uncle Oz, I was working on another post when your comment came in. I had to edit out one or two of your more colourful comments and got the post and the comment mixed up.
        I do agree with you, though, on both what you said and what I had to omit!

      It’s ages since I heard that phrase.
      It’s very suitable.
      Why do so many mugs treat her as if she’s worth listening to.

    Mars-Bar Marianne Disses Brits -‘Dreadful People!’ 


    How many of you are old enough to remember ‘Sixties legend Marianne Faithfull?’
    ==
    ==
    She was a ‘close friend’ of at least one member of the Rolling Stones and we teen fan-fellows envied Mick Jagger ferociously.
    Among other interesting aspects of their ‘scene’ was an urban legend ( vigorously denied by all concerned!) concerning Mars Bars…
    ….
    …………
    … which I won’t go into for fear of the Indonesian censors. She was the daughter of an Austrian aristocrat, which gave her an added exotic appeal.
    One hopes, assuming she’s still blonde, she minds how she goes when re-visiting the parental home-land. 

    One might also wish she’d mind her manners when talking of the people of the land which made her famous and fairly rich.
    She’s certainly old enough to know better than to insult all those Brits – the majority – who think differently from herself on the future of their country  – by abusing them as ‘dreadful people.’.
      oooooooo
     “It is a disaster. I feel sick and very sad. We are back to where it used to be, the right-wing racist Little England, those dreadful people, they’ve always been there.
    =========
    ———–
    Cheeky cow!
    She ought to apologise to the British majority for deploying this hate speech against them.

      I was too young to appreciate Marianne but I have heard the Mars tales, Ross. She is a cheeky cow, though. Who does she think she is, telling us we’re dreadful.people. Over half the country, dreadful? I hope she doesn’t live in England anymore, rubbing shoulders with such a terrible race as the English.

      If she does, she won’t be mixing with the working class, not like she used to when Mick and the other Stones were on the rise. I suppose she thought it was cool to slum it.
      Am I right to say Mick was on the people’s side in the referendum?
      He may have riches and fame like her, but he’s no bloody snob like her!

      I enjoyed the photograph and searched for the Mars Bar story and that was very enjoyable too. She has denied it as you wrote but she did give the raiding London police a quick flash, she says herself..Very interesting post so thanks.
      But did you know that the Austrian noble family she descends from are the Sacher Masochs.
      It was one of them who invented masochism, You would think crunchy bars not mars bars!

      Oh yes I can remember the scandal.
      I think the sales of Mars bars shot up at the time, although I was too young to understand. Kids were a lot more innocent then.
      Another celebrity who thinks her opinion matters.l
