    I have to write a panegyrical or vilificatory account* of a well-known invidual for my last piece of work.

    I have a list of people I'm thinking of doing (including George W Bush and Tony Blair).

    But as those guys are a bit obvious I was looking to the forum to spark my imagination and perhaps give me some other ideas.



    *Basically write a nice essay or nasty essay.

    if you do one on Michael Moore you get to cover those 2 dudes and mo(o)re at the same time.

    but i think Elvis should defietly be your first choice

    Michael Moore is a good choice because I really don't like him.

    Elvis...? Mmmm....

    I think you ought to either vilify someone perceived to be a hero - think Maddox and Christopher Reeve.

    Or laud a person widely perceived as a villan - think J2 and GWB.


    Personally I'd write a few home truths about Shearer

    Seriously tho' - it isn't the easy option but I reckon it would get you a few extra marks.

    People to vilify -- Winston Churchill, JFK, Sir Alf Ramsey, Plato, Howard Carter.

    Individuals to laud -- Sid Vicious, Noel Edmunds, Jack the Ripper, Burke and O'Hare.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    --Good for them if they survive.

    I think I may go down this route, whilst not plagarizing Maddox, I'm sure I can find someone (or a forum member can suggest someone) to vilify in Maddox-style.

    In fact, Maddox himself maybe a good target to either vilify or praise.
