    ...anything. My family have just been having a little discussion on the topic of William McGonagall, famously 'Scotland's worst poet', (celebrated for his Tay Bridge Disaster), and my son asked if I could think of any other examples of people famous because they were the worst at anything? Eddie the Eagle springs to mind, but, sticking with the field of the Arts, I said I could recall two, so we had a little browse of YouTube:
    Florence Foster Jenkins
    Portsmouth Sinfonia
    Anyone got any to add to these?

    Not that he was the worst....but Tim Henman springs to mind....so near yet so far....consistently too.

    All the people mentioned are better at their chosen professions than I am, so does that mean they're still the worst?

    Not a rude comment - I genuinely thought that was his name.;)

    I don't often stick up for him because he punctuates poorly, but Keith has a point.

    Even if tim henman didn't play tennis, he would be too scared to smoke, in case his weird looking dad locked him in a cupboard

    An exceptionally good tennis player. World class but not a world beater?

    No. Bollocks.

    He had a plum in his mouth and the genes of a tennis player and did shite. Only ever got to 4th best in the world so he was actually the worst tennis player in the world in the last ten years.
