Where have all the knobheads gone?

If you went back ~10 years ago then it was wall to wall twats; you could barely move without bumping into one. I know people like Russell Brand are still about, but they're far less prominent. Why hasn't the next generation of knobheads risen up to take their place? Are they all on YouTube instead?

Everyone's a knobhead these days. We've normalised knobbery to the point that nobody stands out as a twat any more. Donald Trump is President of the USA, Boris Johnson is Prime Minister, Jimmy saville and Mark Francois are interviewed on Newsnight like they're serious political figures, Russell Brand has gone mental and thinks that he's literally Jesus. Everyone's drinking iced coffee and trying out veganism and going gluten-free and photographing their dinners for Instagram. We've fucked it.

I think "Being a Dickhead's Cool" is very of its time and that the OP is talking about something different anyway. I think the OP's talking about the casual mysoginistist who thinks groping women is a laugh, the bloke who says "just one more pint" but you know he means lets do a line and at least six more pints, plus shots, then maybe a fight, and who's such an absolute bantersaurus-rex he does a shit in his mate's bath and doesn't understand why he got so angry about it. "Being a Dickhead's Cool" is about shallow, pretentious, hipsters. Justin Lee Collins definitely seems like the "cheeky line or are you too much of a pussy?" type more than the talk-your-ear-off-about-a-book-they-didn't-read-kind.

This is just like, my opinion man but I think the OP was talking about very different knobheads to the knobheads you describe and deride in your post.

Groping women and doing cheeky lines didn't make one a knobhead in the zeitgeist the OP was talking about, in fact it made one a bit of a lad. In the relevant zeitgeist knobhead were in my opinion useless cunts who took every opportunity to discuss why the common man was awful, the common man being the bloke who did cheeky lines and groped women.

Can you imagine 2009 era Russell Brand doing cheeky lines and groping women? He was the opposite, an out and out knobhead who only existed to stop ordinary, decent, cocaine taking women gropers from going to work in their regular jobs with ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons.

2009 Russel Brand might not have done those things, but 2007 Russel Brand would have done it while his mate was on speakerphone to grandfather of the woman he was touching up, though probably not the cokecain bit. However, given what I found on his Wikipedia page, pic related, I don't imagine he's the judgemental sort. All those things I listed did make you a knobhead, it made you Dappy from Ndubz and it got you on Channel 4's Balls of Steel or mid era Big Brother.

Most people who reckon they're "a bit of a lad" are usually knobheads who are trying too hard. I don't know who you imagine was declaring that the "common man was awful" in 2009, but if it was anyone it was probably other common men who thought they were bringing standards down. You appear to be projecting some kind of deep sea fisherperson related irk back a few years too early.

As for "ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons", I imagine there were plenty about the then-recent global finance meltdown now known as the Great Recession and Brand himself did attend a anti-Gaza War protest, but that seems quite specific. Could you help me out by doing the same and getting more specific? Because right now you sound like a drunk Telegraph columnist.

I think the biggest hint the OP left us about whom he was speaking was the fact that Lee Collins is an apolitical woman botherer who twice won Loaded magazine's "LAFTA" award. I'm not sure how this fits into your description at all.

It seems to me that you're conflating apolitical in 2009 with apolitical in 2019. Back then being apolitical was the norm teenlad, nobody gave enough of a fuck to care about politics. It's only since austerity that the witch burners have become a voice in mainstream politics, successive Blair governments left the common mam with a decent enough lifestyle that being involved was a bit sad.

You can't judge a zeitgeist through wikipedia, wikipedia is designed to distort and distance itself from mood. What you're seeing re Dappy and Nduz is your own desire to project those beliefs on to a view from a neutral lens. One problem or positive aspect of wikipedia is the propensity to change its views in accordance with the zeitgeist. If you check the 2009 versions for the Dappt, Nduz or Big Brother articles you will come away with a very different viewpoint.

Refarding your specific question about Brand, I remember one incident in which he shut down half a dozen offices in a city centre, precenting hundreds of people going to work because of "the bankers the bonuses" which he later said he regretted because he was misinformed, those people were just normal people doing a job and he inconvenienced them for misinformed political ideals.

Again teenlad, and I call you that because while I respect your convictions I take issues with the experiences and understanding that led you to them, you're taking a single aspect of this LAFTAlad's character and projecting it on to what you believe is a template of knobhead behaviour. I do not believe this is knobhead behaviour, hence my replies in this thread, but maybe the OP will come along and shoot me out of the water in which case I will bow out of this thread and maybe start my own about what I believe knobhead to be. But for the record, I am arguing purely in OPfaith, I believe your views on what a knobhead is are directly opposed to the OP's views, while you are presenting yourself as in agreement with the OP.
