Newsagent Reports Large Queue Of Angry Builders Looking For Missing Page 3
A WATERFORD city newsagent has had to close its doors this morning after more than 30 construction workers formed an angry queue outside the shop to query a missing page from their daily newspaper.
Owner Chang Lee told WWN that he had no option but to close the shop for fear of his life.
“They so angry they no have picture of boobie girl in paper,” said the 47-year-old Chinese native, who moved to Ireland in 1998. “I say, why not try the Internet for boobies. Loads of boobies there. But they get angry and call me names.”
Mr. Lee reluctantly pulled down his shutters at 11am, before things got heated outside.
“One stupid crying man throw wheelie bin at shop and everything,” he recalled. “I lift up my shirt to show nipples. Still no work.”
Gardaí were called to the scene to diffuse the situation shortly after the incident. However, no one was arrested.
“The men were visibly upset about the whole thing and just needed someone to explain what has happened,” said Garda Thomas Walsh of Ballybricken Garda Station in Waterford.
The Sun newspaper have stopped publishing topless pin-ups on page three after 44 years.
The tabloid has faced pressure from politicians, anti-sexism campaigners and student bodies who claimed it was sexist.
No pictures of bare-chested models have been included on page three since Friday, much to the disgust of hundreds of thousands of men across the UK and Ireland.
Construction firms up and down the country have called a national day of mourning.
