    DG creases me up. He can slap anyone down with an unanswerable truth. It’s like he is swatting flies! So funny!
    No-one ever learns; they merrily make some nasty, arrogant, snide insinuatation, and wallop; they get the sucker punch from DG, who makes them out to be the blithering idiots that they are. I LOVE IT! Box office Gold!
    Not only have DS + DG + Karren shown the world how to run a football club, DG is black-belt Twitter master!
