Sourdough For The SourMan

A smug-looking fleg in the breadshop line is on the phone. He says the following, loud :
"Bullshit. Even gunfire and RPGs can't make cricket interesting."
I don't know if his friend laughs or not, but some of the other customers do. I'm torn between wanting to pelt him with wheat-free Berry Delight muffins and acknowledging the fact that Australians were once very quick to make black-humoured jokes about the very worst of what was happening in the world, and now don't do that so much anymore.

I considered snapping the fleg's photo to run with what I overheard, but then realised I don't actually work for a Murdoch tabloid.
