Phone pun fun

One of the regular rit­u­als on New­stalk Break­fast ( week­days) has co-an­chors Kieran Cud­dihy and Shane Cole­man talk­ing to Pat Kenny about up­com­ing items on his show. On Wed­nes­day, this in­volves Kenny un­in­ten­tion­ally play­ing the straight man to the break­fast show’s imp­ish duo. Kenny flags one of his sto­ries, on Boris John­son re­fus­ing Don­ald Trump’s re­quest that Bri­tain not buy telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment from Chi­nese com­pany Huawei: “Boris has given him two fin­gers.” Cud­dihy’s re­sponse is glee­ful. “You know what Boris is do­ing? He’s meet­ing the Chi­nese half Huawei.” Cue groans. But it could have been worse. Chi­nese take-Huawei, any­one?
