Former Bootneck investigated for sense of humour in humourless Scotland

The Daily Record in Jockland investigated an unusual signage on a private garage, only to discover that firefighter and former Royal Marine Stephen Wilson was happy to reveal what was inside the garage of his semi-detached home in East Calder, West Lothian. The Former Bootneck is being quizzed by the Gestapo after a neighbour complained about the name of his home gym.  Residents were left puzzled when a sign saying "Choir Boy Grooming Room" appeared above his garage.

After giving the Record a tour of his garage, he said: “I came up with the name because choir boys are seen as quite weak and grooming, although nowadays is seen as sexual and associated with paedophiles, is also a training term meaning preparing your body and mind for something.
“I just put a different slant on the name.
“I used to train at a gym but it was costing me £100 a month and the equipment was always being used by other people, so I came up with this. A couple of my mates use it, too. I play a lot of sports so this is where I prepare.”
The garage – which is packed full of weightlifting equipment and massive tractor tyres – is soon to be fitted with a new professionally-made sign which will display the initials CBTR.


Perhaps the hapless and ignorant Jocks should do a spell in the Andrew, get on the Bubbly and stop reading DRO’s with suspicion. Maybe they think it better that neighbours and officials exchange child pornography instead of ancient Royal Speak?
Get out and report the perverts, stop Councillors and politicians abusing you, our language and their expenses.  But for Dogs sake get a life!  Instead of running off to the Fuzz perhaps a word with Stephen would have sufficed?  The Brown Hatters Charter and lack of knowledge is crazy, not a former Bootneck's sense of humour.
