Unlike some, I felt such shame because of where I went to school. As schools go, it wasn’t bad. But that was before I heard the bastarding result of this competition. Which was, as it turns out, a load of Malachy’s boys rapping about the inherent evil that is … dropping chewing gum. And included the quality line
we’re watching you all,
from City Hall
or some such big brothery suggestion.
White men can’t rap; white boys more so. And to do so to spread awareness of £1,000 fines for dropping chewing gum is compounding the shame. And to do so on CoolFM is just the worst.
So, if anybody asks, I’m now going to say I went to Bearny. Until the ad is off the radio, anyway.
