"Oh that's nice," he replies; "how are things in the old place, is Gaz still there?"
"Yes," say I, curling my lip in disgust; "he's still there, still being an arsehole apparently."
Mr D replies; "you shouldn''t call him an arsehole, that's hardly fair."
I bristle furiously. "What d'y mean not fair?"
"Well," says Mr D; "arseholes are very important; they serve a really practical purpose. That's more than you can say for Gaz the dickweasel."
How can I argue with that logic??
