This is in the p.e. interest. It is strictly for banal discussions and not for anything serious. Serious responses will be ignored. This question is about any good memories you have about those badly thought of people in history. I will start with Robert Maxwell, the icon in the above avatar. Please provide a suitable figure of your own to say the odd good thing about. So although poorly departed Maxwell fleeced millions out of the pension funds of his companies leaving massive debts for innocent people I fondly remember when he used to try and sue Private Eye and lost.

Thought of badly? George W. Bush. He basically ruined the world economy and yet he had so many gaffs that they invented a word for that called Bushism.

So basically Bushism brings up fond memories. You have to say one nice thing.

I did..."so many gaffs that they invented a word for that called Bushism. " As far as I know he is the first US President since Hoover to have his own word.

He was obviously a very furry and bushy character to you. Where's the rabbit gone.

Jefferey Dahmer...... He may have been a mass murdering cannibal killer, but by God could he put together a memorable BBQ!

Tell me when you look at the interest icon in the top right do you see potatoes or Robert Maxwell. The rabbits sort of cocked it up so we all see different pictures.

This was meant to be a remarkably frivoulous discussion which allowed free rein without being lambasted by the politically correct brigade. You may have another chance to answer the question Sid and I will make it easy. Figure of hate. Historical. One nice thing to say about them.

No offence taken Sid. It is impossible to offend in a section which ignores serious comments.

P.E. Does that stand for Pop Eye? For I have good memories of him and Olive Oyl. Someone thought badly of in history: Nixon and Watergate. Fond memories: His grace under pressure and his continued dedication to politics.

Hi Karen, the rabbit set up this rather failed attempt at a satire section and the stupid p.e. is meant to stand for Private Eye, the great satirical UK magazine, famed for never falling for the bulls*it of people such as Robert Maxwell, who may or may not be the defaulted icon avatar here. Private Eye regualarly took on Maxwell when everyone else crawled to him due to his massive stake in the general media, in fact him and Murdoch at one time probably held the whole of the English media between them.

hi karen. yes i set up this dazzlingly successful satire section. the p.e. does stand for private eye - which i didn't use as a name because i thought it might attract a certain type of idiot. i wanted something extremely vague. the magazine is very good and because i'm not a lazy coach potato here is a link: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2133063.aspx

Will you please go and do some work up there or I'm not going to put any more nonsense in your interest and you need fresh vital members before the right wing discover it.
