Blue Moon

‘MOONING is no longer a custom peculiar to the British.

Over in Brazil, Fergal Thomas has been arrested for forgoing the obligatory Rio thong and baring his full backside to the people of that fair city.

Coming onto the stage after an appearance of the opera Tristan and Isolde, Thomas, the show’s director, was met by a barrage of boos and catcalls.

His response was to turn his back and drop his pants, so mooning the crowd.

After being charged, Thomas was far from contrite.

“I don’t accept the fact that I committed a crime because I decided to moon at the audience in my own theatre.”’
