A bit like a claim to fame, but a shittier version. Now these can be either your ones or people in the media who got there by the crappiest of means. I'll give you a few examples. I once snogged Neil Kinnocks daughter at a school disco. I once asked to borrow a copy of the Metro off Nigel Havers on the Piccadilly line one day. I had a piss next to Brett Anderson (of Suede fame) at a David Bowie gig. Now as to famous lames to fame. Here's an example or two; Jodie Marsh. Does anyone know how she got famous? Kim Kardashian. Who the fucking hell is she? Seriously. I haven't a clue yet she's everywhere. No story is too lame. In fact, the lamer, the better.
