A Pubescent Lee Westwood + Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’ = Snogging

And to think, we never even saw it coming (/that's what he said)

The reigning #1 golfer in the world, Lee Westwood, recently sat down for a Christmas tree-side chat (you really should click through to see the photo) with Neil Squires of the Sunday Express. Among the topics discussed: whether golf is boring, what it’s like playing with Tiger Woods and and most amusingly, what ranks as his favorite Christmas song. And that’s when things got delightfully cheeky:

“It has to be Wham’s Last Christmas. I think I had my first snog to that at the school Christmas disco.”

Ha. Wham! – that’s rich. And for those of you inexperienced in British slang, “snog” of course means to make out. I suppose there are worse songs out there to make out to for the first time. Like the one that was playing the first time I “snogged,” for instance. I’d rather not get into it, but let’s just say that “Touch Me I’m Sick” by Mudhoney isn’t a real good mood-setter.

Note: my first instinct was to try to incorporate a “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” reference into the “first snogging” bit, but I thought that was a tad inappropriate for a joke about making out, so Mudhoney it was and I left it at that. Maybe it’s better this way, we’d hurt each other with the things we want to say anyway. There’s my requisite additional Wham! reference. Whee!
