A loser who is badly out of pocket

Is it a mango thing or a Malaysian thing? Why does Ireland hate Malaysians?

"How do I get a licence?"
"There is no licence for you to get. You can't get a licence to do something illegal."
"But I need to import these mangoes!"
"You can't."
"Maybe some other agent can help me."
"No they can't. We're all bound by Irish law."
"How soon can I get a licence?"
"You can't."
and so on.
Took a half hour and a call from Customs and Excise to convince him that he had wasted his money; instead of checking first if there were any barriers to importing those ****ing mangoes, he bought them and then (unsurprisingly) the shipper wouldn't refund him.

I know where I would have liked to have stuck his ****ing mangoes.
I reckon they rotted, somewhat like his brain.

In short he wanted "to boldly go where no mangoes gone before."

#justice4mangoes!!

Mangos? I just want my local grocers to import durians.

Oh I fully support a durian ban, that's just nasty.

I had durian in Thailand and it was quite nice, despite the ripe diaper smell. It didn't sit quite well, possibly due to the sulfur content, so I imagine one should perhaps not eat too much. Apparently it shouldn't be mixed with alcohol as the double whammy to the kidney might be a little much.

They sell it in asian stores here and then it's usually frozen so it doesn't smell much.

As for dumb questions, I've been asked a couple of times, once by a colleague, if insects are animals. I answer politely, but in my head I'm like what else would they be? Plants? Fungi?

Jesus. I could tell you that as an eight-year-old without a college degree.
