All in a days work.

So yeah, I killed three chinese kids, gave a girl an abortion, shot a drug dealer in the head and another in the face, kicked a bloodthirsty rat out of a tenement window to save a baby, attempted rape, drowned my secret love's boyfriend and then left a teen bleeding to death in the Liffey.

What did you do to people in your stories?

No killing bunnies here now.

As the man said.

Somebody stubbed a toe in one of mine.Actually that's a bit grandiose, when I say 'one of mine' it's , er um , the only one.And nobody stubbed a toe in it either.

Once one of mine got a haircut.

Mostly they sit around saying to each other "Could be worse, we could in one of Colm's stories"
"Yeah, that's a rough world over there"

Hmmm... let see...

Killed at least one baby. Performed twisted sex acts in public. Gave a nun a lithopedian. Divorce. Took advantage of senile old person. Enforced transvestism.

TFE, for the craic you should create a character and do something horrible to him, or worse, like really evil, make him watch Pat Kenny inteview Pete Doherty.

Oub I knew you'd come through and trump me.

Niamh who had a haircut? Was it the bloke you then cremated in a hotel room or the woman you fed bleach to?

Eh, forgot about them, they all had it coming anyway - yeah - even the woman with the haircut - she had to go home and wash it before she was happy with it... Bwahahaha

I really think you're being unfair about that interview. It was all Pete's fault - that and the chemistry - the chemistry was all wrong.

I usually just kill their pets or make them have bad sex.
