Is Izzard real - see post 732561 et seq., especially post 732642.


Yes, I know that, strictly speaking, this thread's in the wrong section - but it just seemed to fit, somehow...

Should be a poll Spud, Eddie Izzard is decidedly real, whether the guy posting as such is, who knows but I doubt it.

I take your point, Efros - but I deliberately omitted a poll in case people thought I was asking whether the real Eddie Izzard is real.

If that makes sense (he said, uncertainly).

I suspect it is real, because it's not written using a forum format.

But having said that, it doesn't seem like Mr Izzard to be constrained by form.

All the info provided is on Eddie's website - but how would tc know that Reg had been on QI?

Unless Eddie Izzard is posting from the same iP address as another poster on this forum, I venture to guess that the "Eddie Izzard" persona posting is not the man himself.

As a matter of forum policy, we don't allow the use of usernames intended to make the reader believe the poster is in fact that person, so the Eddie Izzard username has been banned.

Spoilsports! What harm would it do if (for instance) Tony Blair was to post here? (Assuming of course that it was not T Blair ex PM of the UK - there'd be obvious harm if we allowed THAT T Blair to post here given his penchant for lying).

Spoilsport - I know. It's a moderator's fate. <sigh>

Don't you feel sorry for me? <puppy-dog eyes>

So, if someone started posting here who was a former Arsenal goalkeeper-turned-tv pundit what happens to 'our' bob?

Incidentally, I have just googled the above chap, and found his middle name to be Primrose

Ah you're behind the 8-ball on that one, tetsabb. A couple of posters had much hilarity with that when bobwilson first joined us. I have to say that bobwilson has never made any attempt to pretend to be the former Arsenal goalkeeper.

Now this is QI. Anyone know where this expression comes from and what it originally meant?

Nothing to do with the "magic", "fortune-telling" 8-ball toy?
