Oasis' Liam Officially In UK Wit Set

[b]Oasis[/b] front man [b]Liam Gallagher[/b] has been voted tenth wittiest Brit in history, in a new TV poll.

The survey of 3,000 comedy fans for Dave TV put the Gallagher in tenth place, behind some marginally more predictable choices of historical figures.

The list was topped by iconic playwright Oscar Wilde, with Spike Milligan and Stephen Fry in second and third place.

Some of Gallagher's more memorable quotes have included:"Americans want grungy people, stabbing themselves in the head on stage. They get a bright bunch like us, with deodorant on. They don't get it.

And his remark when he heard that WAG and Spice Girl [b]Victoria Beckham[/b] was writing a book: "She can't even chew gum and walk in a straight line, let alone write a book".

The full Top 10:

[b]1. Oscar Wilde
2. Spike Milligan
3. Stephen Fry
4. Jeremy Clarkson
5. Sir Winston Churchill
6. Paul Merton
7. Noel Coward
8. William Shakespeare
9. Brian Clough
10. Liam Gallagher[/b]
