Daily Sport staff are minding their Bs and Fs after being warned by
editor-in-chief Tony Livesey against burping and farting in the office.
Livesey denies this admonition, but rather undermines this by saying:
“As long as they don’t do it while I’m having me lunch. I might punch them in the mouth if they did it while I was eating. I expect the same level of hygiene here as you would find at The Ivy. But I wouldn’t sack anyone for farting.”
the Sport, however, it is widely confirmed that after conference early
last week, Livesey told his heads of department he had had a complaint
about burping and farting and it had to stop. Insiders do say there may be some basis for the complaint.
got one guy here who is a notorious farter, but they are silent, deadly
ones,” Press Gazette was told. “And there’s another who is a champion
burper – they come from his arse up.”
