He’ll be chuffed to his bollocks in the morning

I could note the announcement that the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature has gone to Harold Pinter [extracts from the citation here] in the honest way of Hugh at Most Sincerely Folks, or the humorously-literary way of Chris Bertram at Crooked Timber, or the self-confessed-obvious-joke way of David T at Harry’s Place or in the one-upset-short-of-a-hat-trick-this-week way of Sinéad at Sigla.. but I’ll just note his comments at his 75th birthday celebration at the Gate theatre in Dublin last weekend – “A man of 75 needs a bit of affection and it’s nice it’s coming from Dublin.”.. or Stockholm indeed … OK, OK.. He’ll really be chuffed to his bollocks now.
