I had a Jim'll soap on a rope that I binned the first day it all came out.

I liked Graham Linehan's suggestion on HIGNFY last night.

Oldandcobwebby Sat 13-Oct-12 18:49:45

No. Send it to me instead.

UnChartered Sat 13-Oct-12 18:51:45

i missed HIGNFY, what did Graham Linehan say?

cantpooinpeace Sat 13-Oct-12 18:52:42

What did he suggest Mrs?

Reckon it's well & truly lost its shine now!

RandomMess Sat 13-Oct-12 18:54:04

Reckon I'd ebay it and donate the money to a support charity (I've just looked on ebay!!)

I binned my Jim'll Fix It soap from my downstairs loo

I'm curious how you got your badge but yes I would bin it.

It's all so vile.

MrsReiver Sat 13-Oct-12 18:55:17

Gathering them all together, melting them into a stake and driving it through his corpse.

It's worth watching HIGNFY on iplayer just for that, and the discussion about the Daily Fail.

Are they selling on eBay?

Viperidae Sat 13-Oct-12 18:56:19

No, I'd keep it.

He is a knob but that doesn't have to deprive you of a memento of a significant thing in your life.

What about everyone sending them back to the BBC?
With an appropriate covering letter.

I was on in 1986! He never came near me & was pretty rude, plus I wasn't the age range he seems to have preyed on - mum thought he was gay when we met him - she kept on that he was an odd man!

Noqontrol Sat 13-Oct-12 18:57:57

I'd keep it. For the same reasons that viperidae says.

RandomMess Sat 13-Oct-12 18:59:14

Oh yes they are selling, and for a notable amount of money...


Can understand the selling not the buying of them!

UnChartered Sat 13-Oct-12 19:00:49

i agree with Viper, what did you get to do, OP?

it must have been pretty exciting really

GobblersKnob Sat 13-Oct-12 19:01:56

Oh my god, there are so many on e-bay! shock

Why? I don't get it? I understand why people might want to sell them right now but why does anyone want to spent the best part of £200 on one atm shock

Op get it on the bay quick.

MrsReiver Sat 13-Oct-12 19:02:11

Bloomin' eck Random, you're not kidding!

The mind boggles.

cantpooinpeace Sat 13-Oct-12 19:03:42


Its going on for sure!

ChristmasKate Sat 13-Oct-12 19:05:04

I can't understand why people are buying them on EBay, why would you want it.

Like the idea of sending back to the BBC.

I'm being a bit slow today but what does HIGNFY stand for?

GobblersKnob Sat 13-Oct-12 19:06:20

Have I Got News For You smile

BalloonSlayer Sat 13-Oct-12 19:07:20

For goodness sake, he was only the presenter of that programme!

Lots of people worked on the research, setting up the things people wanted to do, and most importantly the people who ran whatever activity it was you wanted to do for your Fixit, gave up their time out of the goodness of their hearts to make you happy.

Why should you feel that the memento of all that is tainted just because the presenter was a scum of the earth shitbag?

Why can't you think of it as a present from the person who really Fixed your wish for you, whoever it was? Cause it was nothing to do with JS.

youarewinning Sat 13-Oct-12 19:07:40

For £200 I'd sell if it he was a decent bloke!

I also don't understand why people would want to buy one let alone at that price - there seems no value in having one unless Jim did fix for you. confused

cantpoo do what you want. If you no longer feel you want it and theres money in selling it I don't see why you shouldn't.
