It Was The Best Butter

I'm not particularly fond of my younger self- and if people kept coming up to me expecting me to be just like him I'd get cross.

It must be horrid to be middle-aged and still famous for something you did when you were a gobby kid. You'd feel trapped, like you couldn't move on. It would be like carrying a corpse around.

And maybe that's the reason- aside from the money, aside from wanting to prolong his fame- why Johnny Rotten did that stupid butter ad.  He wanted to ditch the cadaver.

He wanted to upset his fans.

And yes, it's always sad when a hero sells out.

Simple remedy: don't have any heroes in the first place.
