Shopper gets hilarious rap reply after complaining about new shoes in Cockney rhyming slang

A SHOPPER got a hilarious reply in rap after using Cockney rhyming slang to complain to M&S about his shoes.

Eugene Costello, 50, wrote asking for advice on how to stop the “misery of me bleedin’ plates of meat”.

The writer, who went shopping with his daughter for a £65 pair of brogues for a job interview three months earlier, got a response that would have made rapper Marky Mark proud.

It referred to 12-year-old Evie as his “bricks and mortar” and continued: “Sorry to hear the brogues have been rogues and don’t fit like they oughtta’.”

It then promised a refund before saying: “At this point I’ll need to switch to prose.”

Eugene — who landed the job after getting an M&S outfit for the interview — said: “Evie wanted to smarten me up.

“I thought the brogues would soften but they were still agonising so I let the store know.

“Nothing prepared me for the reply. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
