The Courage to Get on People's Tits
If true, maybe Bengali was more about him then we thought.
Nice find, must have been from early 70’s.
No idea where this is from, unfortunately.
Reminded me of this exchange with the patronising priest and of course of his adventures with the fantastically flamboyant Jo(h)n Daley.
"Occasionally we suffer the disdainful presence of a local priest, young and patronizing, with a name never to be recalled. Oddly, he seems to fix his curiosity upon me, possibly because I sit aloof, possibly because I do not contribute to polite laughter, possibly because of the newly tended weave in my hair.
‘And what do YOU like in life?’ he asks me, ready to play the patronizing game at my expense in order to raise a giggle from the rest of the class, thus rendering him popular for a few perverse minutes.
‘Mott the Hoople,’ I answer truthfully.
‘Oh, I see,’ he smirks, greater and grander than us all, ‘most boys like girls – he likes Mott the Hoople.’"
