A 54-year-old Whitechapel man has told The East London Gazette that popular WordPress blogger, Biff Sock Pow, stole a number of pieces of gnocchi from his plate while he was reading a favourable review of his Whitechapel-based blog on Pow’s homepage.
Toby Dell, a forklift truck engineer, told the Gazette: “I had just sat down to eat my gnocchi and was browsing through my phone, looking for responses to my latest blog post.
“I spotted Pow’s piece, praising my stuff and including me in his top 5 favourite blogs
“Naturally, I was both intrigued and excited in equal measure and put down my fork as I scrolled through his piece.
“However, when I’d finished reading and readdressed myself to my meal, I noticed that 3 pieces of gnocchi were missing
“I told my wife who explained that I must have eaten them while I was reading, but I’m convinced Pow took them, probably using a fork on a spring that he was manoeuvring from the kitchen.
“It’s my view that he either ate them on the spot or took them back to the United States where he warmed them up in his microwave and had them for his supper, washed down with a shot of redeye”
Pow was approached for a comment but became evasive and told a Gazette reporter, “Blow it out ya goddamn ass”.
