Boaz Shoshan
When he trained to become a financial adviser, Boaz Shoshan earned a black mark against his name for asking too many questions.

When cheating is OK

Oh well. It was good while it lasted. At least my colleague won his bet and won’t have to get a three lions tattoo… I’m just glad I had enough beer in the fridge to last me through the semi-final….

A fervour for the fringe

A colleague has just informed me he’s put a bet on. Not for money either. If England win the World Cup, he’s going to get his first tattoo: the three lions crest, with “thirty years of hurt” in bold beneath…
