    Has to be a joke. No way are they serious.

  3. dave Says:

    I’m going to the bathroom now for an unadorned, unpretentious dump.

  4. Eoin Says:

    @ Kev – don’t think so.

    @ Dave – urgh, you’ve just spoiled my unadorned, unpretentious breakfast. (Coco Pops!)

  5. Paddy Says:

    Unadorned? Unpretentious!? Butler if you were unadorned and unpretentious you’d be having plain old Rice Krispies for breakfast.

    No, You’re a flash cunt and you’re rubbing it in all our faces!!

  6. Eoin Says:

    @ Paddy – you want to know what I’m having for my lunch??

  7. Paddy Says:

    Caviar and lobsters probably

  8. gueuleton Says:

    Oooooh… I’ll go with braised ox cheek in red wine.

  9. Eoin Says:

    No, that’s tomorrow. And Betty’s Caviar & Lobster Hot Pot is on Monday.

    I’m having a Spar roll and packet of King *Luxury* Crisps. In your face, peasants!

  10. Cormac Says:

    I can’t believe Martin Maloney commented on Oonagh McDonald’s link. There’ll be trouble if word of that ever gets out!

  11. Paddy Says:

    @ Eoin did you say something about pheasants? Jesus you fairly go all out on the lunchtimes don’tyou!

  12. Lisa Says:

    I was going to guess humble pie but evidently I was way off.

  13. Eoin Says:

    @ Cormac – he’s fairly free and easy with old comments alright

    @ Paddy – yeah I had one of my stableboys go out and shoot a couple for me there. Just keep them busy more than anything.

    @ Lisa – humble pie? not while I’ve got Coco P0ps and *Luxury* crisps to keep me fed

    @Eoin: “I’m having a Spar roll and packet of King *Luxury* Crisps.”

    I had a ham sandwich and a packet of Aldi Snackrite crisps (Salt and Vinegar).

    Those luxury crisps anything like the Tayto Velvet Crunch? You know they’re real luxury if there are only 6 crisps in a packet.
