The things you have to like

…even if you don’t..

We all know there are certain things in life everyone has to like. And if you don’t, you are written off as some kind of dangerous subversive. You are not embracing popular culture. People start making assumptions about you: You probably don’t even like the X-Factor? Big Brother. Britain’s got (no) talent. Next you’ll be telling me you still buy CDs or read a book occasionally. My god…

Here then, and to illustrate the point, is a top 10 “Things you have to like”. Subject to change as I see fit, naturally.

Don’t you dare step out of line and admit to not liking these. Especially if you don’t….

  • Abba
  • Grease
  • Star Wars
  • Princess Diana
  • Indian Food
  • X-Factor
  • Computer-Generated movies (a tie with X-Factor)
  • Elvis
  • Rap music
  • Soaps on TV
  • Manchester United (debatable)
  • Ricky Gervais (a tie with Manchester United)

I dare you to disagree….
