Wildfire Magee mad at ‘spinmeister’ slur
Mad, not mystic
Reg co-founder Mike 'Wildfire' Magee today took time out from his sabbatical to angrily refute suggestions that he was a Sanskrit god.
An article in yesterday's Media Guardian repeats allegations that "Mystic" Mike Magee was off to India to "be with his people" and that his peers and compatriots had elevated the man to the pantheon of Hindu deities.
In an e-mail to Grauniad hack Amy Vickers, Mad Mike Magee said that he was "appalled and outraged," - not by the India 'relevations', but because he was referred to as a "spinmeister" in the article.
"Two can play at this stitching game, you know", he said, before setting off to meet his people.
Mikey boasts an impressive array of nicknames, some of them printable. ®'
