Man gets 5p Plastic Bag Tax tattoo
Banter is one of the worst words in the English lexicon, so prepare yourself for the appearance of it in this article, about a man who got a tattoo about the 5p plastic bag tax.
Aden Brown decided to get famous on the internet (it worked, but clearly won't last) by getting his auntie to do a tattoo on his hip about the new plastic bag laws. The tattoo is of a stick man pushing a loaded trolley, along with the words: "5p bags! F*ck that. £1 trolley."
Have a look!
And now, here comes that awful 'banter' word.
He posted the photo saying: "Just to top this banter off the money I saved from not using the bags I got this. Thanks Tesco every little helps."
You see, Aden stole a trolley from a Tesco, which he says he's now returned. He added: "It was a joke between me and five of my mates. I said to the lady who served me, ‘I ain’t paying for bloody bags.’ I said, ‘I’m pinching a trolley’, knowing nothing would be done. I thought it would be really funny."
"With the tattoo, I wanted to push the banter to the next level. I went to see my auntie, who owns a tattoo parlour, and she said: ‘Why don’t you get it tattooed? Why don’t you push it a little bit more?"
"I've got religious tattoos and other important stuff, and I've even got a willy tattooed on my bum in memory of a friend who had his member shut in a door. I love my life. I'm always doing random things. People are too serious, but it’s all just a bit of banter. It is all I live for."
No-one actually speaks like that, so we smell a troll. Still, he got on our pages and countless other clickbait articles, so fair game.
