Huzzah For James Blunt!

(For the first time ever, Maura actually made me delete the joke that originally went here. I really didn’t think it was that mean.) [Billboard]

    A couple years ago when You’re Beautiful was just starting to catch on, there were some kids standing behind me at a show randomly talking about the song. One of them said, “His name is Blunt!” and they had a good chuckle at poor James’ expense. So I’m sure in the overall scheme of things, Mr. Blunt wouldn’t have minded the meaner headline that much.

    was the original one about being top of the billboard “what an annoying privileged whiney whey-faced TOSSER” chart for the 100th week?
