Not that I am rich. I don't get paid nearly enough, considering I've done for Ryanair what Alex Ferguson did for Manchester United. As opposed, say, to what Louis Van Gaal has done for them, which is basically the same as what politicians always do to a country when they get the crazy idea that they know how to run things.

What's the big deal? All I did was make some perfectly reasonable remarks about how Irish voters should stop electing "lunatics". Since when were lunatics a protected species?
