But the thing is, nobody'd ever heard of him before he was a victim. And we wouldn't give a monkey's arse about him anyway if the news hadn't reported that he'd been a snare drummer in the army.
You're right- no-one on this forum would have given a "monkey's arse" that a human being was butchered in the street (what's the big deal- happens every day right)? It was only the fact that he was a drummer that we cared about the story.
