Say hello to our new friend Gavin. He sells ads for Hot Press and he added his tuppence last night to the most recent debate to get the plain people of Ireland hot under their collective collar.

Gavin has this to say:

It’s a shame to see Mongrel go, I thought it was a great looking publication. Foggy Notions was way too clever for me, a good looking mag though as well.

I welcome State Magazine, I wish them the best. Their ad manager, my opposite number is a former colleague of mine. No harm in a bit of competition. It will help keep us on our toes here in HP Towers.

In relation to this quote

“But I feel sorry for her, because she was left to defend herself. Not one other person from Hotpress, and let’s face it, they are probably reading this right now, came to her aid to defend the publication with her. That speaks volumes for me.”

The reason for this is we are probably busy working, hence this will be my only input.

As for the other comments on our mag, you would swear we killed puppies for fun. Relax lads it’s just a magazine and it is only for reading.

There you have it. Hot Press employees are “probably busy working”. Hot Press don’t kill puppies for fun. And Hot Press is “just a magazine and it is only for reading”.

One question: “HP Towers”. Is that some sort of sauce?
