When this fellah calls you a wanker you know that there is some amount of irony flying around. The Tory loving, airplane flying and middle-class lover of fencing* was compelled to give a fan that name recently at a concert in America.
Just as ageing rockers Iron Maiden were breaking into Wasted Years lead singer Bruce Dickinson shouted out to a chap in the front row who has some follicles missing, ‘Ah, for fucks sake, the guy with the bald head and the white shirt, you’ve been texting for the last fucking three songs. You’re a wanker!’
So, there you have it, according to Dickinson texting is akin to masturbation. Well, they both quickly become a habit. And Bruce, it takes one to know one.
*not moving on stolen goods or indeed the stuff you put around your garden, we mean fencing the sport.
