Fu Manchu, or Gyles Brandreth...?

Heh heh Big Al, I take it you're not terribly keen on poor old Giles?
I find him irritating and smuttily smug.

But Fu Manchu used spiders among other creatures (snakes etc) to do his evil work for him.

If the choice is only between these two, I'd have to go for Giles Brandreth.

Couldn't I have Sir David Attenborough or Prof Brian Cox though? I'd love to be chained to either of them!

I guess being chained to Joan Jett might be interesting, just for a change of pace. But for how long?

HA! HA! HA! Excellent, Steve.

Joe - I have no idea who Gyles Brandreth is...nor Bryan Cox either. I have heard of Sir David Attenborough.

The Insidious Doctor Fu Manchu is a character in some old adventure stories which pit courageous British heroes Nayland Smith and Doctor Petrie (think of Holmes and Watson) against a Chinese mastermind and evil genius from those glorious days of "The Yellow Peril", when Chinese villains were all the rage in British literature.

Here is a brief summary: "London, 1913—the era of Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, and the Invisible Man. A time of shadows, secret societies, and dens filled with opium addicts. Into this world comes the most fantastic emissary of evil society has ever known… Dr. Fu-Manchu.

Denis Nayland Smith pursues his quarry across continents and through the back alleys of London. As victim after victim disappears at the hands of the Devil Doctor, Smith must unravel his murderous plot before it is too late."

And as for the inestimable Joan Jett, she is an American hard rock and heavy metal singer...the veritable queen of her trade, with a long and remarkable musical career, and not a small amount of genuine talent....as well as a very good instinct for how promote herself in a world that is almost entirely dominated by male performers, managers, etc.

Good for her, I say! Not my usual kind of music at all, but I have to say she does it with great panache.

Here is a classic example of Joan Jett and her young punk bandmates, the Blackhearts in action. Good clean fun!

Bad Reputation!

I figure it would make for an interesting change of pace from my usually sedate existence. :)

I have always wanted to be chained to Rita Hayworth. I suppose that since she's dead and all, I would soon tire of this arrangement.


But hey, I can dream, can't I?

(still obsessed with these ideas) Can I please be stuck in a lift with BOTH Sir David Attenborough AND Prof Brian Cox?
(Merely to spend the time discussing Ecology, Zoology, Astrophysics and Astronomy of course. Nothing else, no no.)

What about William Blake? Certainly crazy but maybe entertaining (though distressing). The same with Christopher Smart. And James Clarence Mangan, with his green glasses and the four umbrellas he always carried. What can he have done with them all when it rained?

Have we decided on the precise manner of the preferred chaining process here? Will bedposts and handcuffs be involved?

Whips? Tickling sticks? Black plastic attire?
Ooer...I'm getting a bit carried away here :)

Could one be released from the chain while the chosen person goes to the loo? Even Sir David Attenborough/Brian Cox would lose their appeal in that situation.

If we're allowed fictional characters,as Dave suggests, then I'd like Fitzwilliam Darcy please.

Apart from jumping into ponds and getting his shirt wet can Mr Darcy be classed as a maniac though? :-)

Ah, but in the original novel, Darcy never did emerge dripping wet from the lake.
He wasn't exactly a maniac, you're quite right, but he was a snobby and pompous twat.
However, he did warm to Elizabeth eventually (same name as me!), and did everything possible to remedy the consequences of Lydia's foolish elopement.

and (whispers)... He was very very rich....! :)

I love that movie. (If it's the one I think it is.)

"Whips? Tickling sticks? Black plastic attire?"

Well, the reason I selected Joan Jett is partly that I think she knows everything there is to know about all that kind of stuff, so she makes the perfect candidate. And at the same time, her music is very good of its type...even though it's anything but folk music! :)

Poem

Kim Yong Un
Was fond of a bun.
He bloody nearly
Weighed a ton.
Poor Kim ! his life was tedious circuits
Of eating buns and silly haircuts.
he said, i've built a bomb
i've built a rocket
And its been fun, i wouldn't knock it.
but what would be enormous fun
would be meeting a really special someone
just like me - a great bullshitter!
I wonder if there's one on Twitter
