A man from Three Crosses accidentally spoke to his mates in a cute baby voice usually reserved for his girlfriend, we can reveal.

Rob Gray was enjoying an evening out with friends in the Black Boy in Killay when he made the embarrassing blunder which has had life changing implications.

Rob said: “I’d had a few and I wasn’t really thinking straight. Me and my girlfriend Chloe had a few words before I went out, so she was playing on my mind.

“One of the lads was asking me if I wanted a drink, I was just staring into the distance at the time and then I just blurted it out. The whole pub fell silent, what a thing to happen.”

Rob’s friend Pete Bowen added: “He’s been a bit of a pussy since he started seeing Chloe, but no one anticipated it had come to this.

“I asked if he wanted a Carling, he turned to me and went ‘I’m sorry kitty bean, tell hot buns again.’ Absolutely astonishing stuff.

“The content was bad enough, sounding like a 5 year old was just creepy. Where do we go from here? I don’t know.”

Rob and his friends have kept their distance since hot buns’ faux pas, but nobody can shift it from their memories.

Rob added: “I just don’t know how long I can leave it before I can speak to them again?

“If the Swans do something special I reckon I could slip back into the mix reasonably untarnished because everyone will be a bit preoccupied.

“Otherwise I’ll be spending my upcoming Bank Holidays with kitty bean and her Mother.”
