Did you know? If he wasn’t the apostle of death, The G.R. would be a block layer or famous racing driver.

[90 Second Natter was an occasional item I did for Mongrel magazine, usually at the last minute when we had space to fill. I’d pick someone in the news, ask them inane questions and make up silly replies – often copied verbatim from teenagers’ Bebo pages. (Moqtada Al-Sadr’s favourite drink: “Malibu, peach snaps, mickey finns… d list goes on cause I would drink anyting!!!!”) It was a totally moronic, bafflingly popular segment. The Grim Reaper Q.&A. is revisited here at the request of my very good friend Trevor Antao.]

    Remember this “no 1 is scared of hedgeclippers u muppet…” class!

  2. AJ Moloney Says:

    I was once asked by someone if those Q&A things were for real. “Like, were the people they asked just taking the piss, like?”.

  3. Treeman Says:

    Looking at the Trim Reaper’s entry in urban dictionary, he sounds like the last person I’d invite to my birthday part too.

    “Trim Reaper – A guy that has a natural ability for picking up good looking broads.”

    @ Alan – when I was doing the social diary, this girl I knew complimented me on it and I shrugged it off, saying it was pretty stupid really. She was like, ah no, come on, it must be cool to hang out with all them celebs!

    @ Treeman – you’re welcome!
