A man from the Uplands who bought some Bitcoin keeps talking about it all the time even though no one cares and he doesn’t really know what it is.

Savvy Pete Bowen, 39, invested in Bitcoin when he was pissed a few months ago and took a bit of an interest in it when it’s value started to rise.

Bowen said: “This intangible, made up and unpredictability volatile currency is the absolute future and thanks to the strategic investment I made on my wife’s credit card after eight pints of Stella I’m riding on the crest of a wave to financial success.

“I tell everyone all about it and I can see they’re envious and definitely not confused by how ridiculous the whole thing is.

Bowen’s friend Rob Gray said: “Getting a round out of Pete is like drawing blood from a stone, so I was as shocked as anyone when I found out he’d spunked a load of cash on an imaginary currency. But that’s Pete and Stella for you.

“Good on him if it works, but does he have to talk about it all the time?

“I sold my car the other week and was disappointed with the price, he just tutted at me and said ‘if you knew what you’d be doing you’d be doing the Bitcoin’, like it was some Latin American dance.”

Bowen continued: “I was a little disappointed that the only place I can spend my Bitcoin is CeX on Oxford Street, I was eyeing up a new sofa from Next but even they aren’t aware about the investment potential of coinbit, wait no, Bitcoin, yeah that’s it.

“I have a nose for a deal and my methods are easy, I get drunk and buy stuff. Some stuff will make me a multi-millionaire like my Bitcoin thing and some things may not work out like the real life sex doll I introduced to my wife this morning because there was one on This Morning.”
