Will the winner of amIright Idle be officially declared "Right Idle" ?

Unless this was some sort of deliberate misspelling (if so, forgive me)...IT'S "IDOL", NOT "IDLE"! According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "idle" means "not employed or in use, lazy; aimless". Whereas "idol" means "an image worshipped as a god; an idolized person or thing". Again...if you deliberately used "idle", forgive me...but if not get it right next time. :0) Sorry. Thanks.

I think the idea was to avoid any comeback from the American Idol/Pop Idol(the UK variant) crew - t'was I who originally suggested using the word "Idle" as a tongue-in-cheek way of getting round the thought that they might be annoyed by us using "Idol" ... but if I win, I want to be called just "Idle" :-)

Ohhhhhhh...ok. I get it. In fact when I looked up "idle" I thought maybe that WAS deliberate, because, you know, some of us truly are lazy and aimless, wasting their lives reading parodies and misheard lyrics...wasting away...wasting away, one minute at a time...wasting I'll stop now if you like.

From what I understand, that's how William Broad came up with his name. A teacher wrote a report to the lazy kid's parents, saying, "William is idle." So he started calling himself "Billy Idle," and later changed it to "Billy Idol." Doesn't really matter to me, I don't like him anyway.
