slams Angelus blast
"Me and Dorren [Doolally] and Siobhan [Kilfeather] were talking about flying to the States", said drinker/student Manus Howiya, "And Dorren mentioned how she always loves robbing the little cushions they give you on Aer Lingus. I was just 'You take those? They're not presents. You're not supposed to take them! You take those?' ".
At this point Doolally is reported to have stared at Howiya for some moments before replying "Hello? They're complementary. That means you take". Kilfeather also added that they give you food and drink on those flights too and you don't seem to mind that do you Manus?
Continued Howiya, "I retorted that if you invite someone into your home and offer them wine and crackers, you do not expect them to see this as an invitation to go after the soft furnishings. The distinction I drew was between edibles, such as food, and sittables, such as cushions. 'The sittables are a capital purchase', I told them, adding that it's people like them who drive up prices for the rest of us".
The trio then went on to discuss what was up with that 'Why Go Bald?' sign on George's St.

"I thought I did everything right: I included all the requisite elements of pathos [Dying baby appeals to world for peace], superstition [good luck if sent on, famine and pestilence if not] and promised wealth [Bill Gates to distribute mobile phones to first thousand forwarders] in order to appeal to my target demographic of shallow, gullible fools.
"And I painstakingly wrote in a list of fake previous forwarders, complete with little '>' marks at the side. But then... nothing. I'm gutted".
