  • You got upset with me because you said that I, um I smeared the image of one of your favorite Irish poets.

  • You're not only from not only for the public, but it also ruined it for me, Which is what really hurt.

  • Which is Yates.

  • William Butler Yates, basically a saint of Ireland.

  • You know what I mean?

  • Great poet.

  • One of the great, probably the greatest Irish poet on this mystic figure.

  • It's true.

  • Yeah, that's true.

  • I pointed out to you.

  • It was the Viagra of its day on Lee.

  • It didn't work.

  • That is a guy who was.

  • He was so jacked up on a per glands injected into his testicles that he wrote that poem.
