We have all heard of the bucket list, the things you want to do/accomplish before you die, but have you ever heard of the shovel list?
In Marian Keyes’ new book, The Mystery of Mercy Close her main character describes it as “A list of all the people and things I hate so much I want to hit them in the face with a shovel."
As this sounds more fun, and therapeutic than a bucket list, I thought that I would do my own. Mine has sections though. Turns out there are more people in need of a shovel in the face than I had originally though.
So in no particular order….
The “Too Happy/Nice therefore must be Psychopaths” List
All morning people
The Politics List (This one is limited on the grounds I couldn’t possibly name everyone)
The current British Government
David Cameron (he deserves a special mention)
The Pop “Stars” List
The Collective List
The Catholic Church
The Pope (again, special mention required)
Reality TV contestants
Any/all fundamental extremists from any religion
Jeremy Kyle viewers
The “People I don’t have an explanation for, they just NEED a shovel to the face” List
Pastor “Dickdonaldo” Maldonaldo
Sebastian “The |Cucumber” Vettel
Clowns (these need multiple shovels on the grounds that they are scary)
I think that will do for now ;)
