Photo-ops make a celeb look a tosser

This site is dedicated to calling humbug or bunkum for what it is. In that spirit, Wiggia sends this:

Only of course she didn’t !

Nothing wrong in raising funds for a charity, but the headline is so misleading, they rode, a big group, in relays, how far she actually rode the bike is suspect as virtually every photo shows her never having broken sweat getting into a Range Rover.
Not quite rode across America.

I mean, what do real achievers such as Ellen MacArthur, Clare Francis and the like think about such porkies? And who believes it for a moment? Who’s impressed? Why do they lie like this?

In my eyes, they lower themselves for participating in such deception.

Same with that photo op of Obama with a pick-axe in his hands. Never done a day’s manual labour in his life:

And Princess Mary in Denmark, with America’s Cup skipper John Bertrand:

Her hubbie, Prince Frederick, is on the competing Danish boat.

Looks lopsided but the Danish are one of the leading seafaring nations – immense respect – so there was always going to be a chance Frederik actually joined the crew of the other boat.

As for Mary, in her immaculate £4000 sailing suit, she’s actually no floozie.  Word was she wanted a real role on board but was left to put her hands on the sheeting [ropes] in a photo-op, as if she’s involved.  Now anyone who sails knows that a rookie does not go near the sheeting as one gust, the sail fills, the sheet tightens and she gets flung.  So what was Bertrand doing allowing this, unless the winds were light, which they do seem to be?

I’d have given her a genuine role, maybe beside the mast and she could have been photographed from there.  And Obama – people would have respected him more if he’s donned the wellies, got in there and got working.

Others do.  When Wills flies a helicopter, one believes him.  when Anne plays polo, one believes her.  When Steve McQueen drove a race car, one believed him.

    We knew Anne, Wills and Steve did these things because they actually did and we could watch.

    Who is going to believe Obama is doing any work when every day we see the useful fuck does nothing?
