Check our March Skip Hunk

They say that life begins at 60, and this was never truer than for Dennis Berrie whom we are honoured to have gracing this month’s Skip Hunk page. Photos of Dennis caught the eye of the editor for a few reasons. Firstly, he posed for these pictures in the middle of winter. Secondly, he has the flexibility of a young Darcy Bussell. Thirdly, the stitch of clothing he is wearing isn’t doing the job that well. So much so, we had to protect his modesty with some strategically placed skips! Power to him, I hope when we’re 60, we’re equally as lithe, confident and impulsive…

OK, Dennis, what do you do at Trash UK?
I’m a valleter, but I prefer the term, “vehicle hygiene specialist”.

Well, that will be how you are known from now on. Now, the Trash UK boys are as mad as a box of frogs – how long have you worked with them?
Five months

Crikey. What’s the best part of your job?
Finding magnets

It’s the simple things in life, isn’t it? OK, what’s the worst?
Getting cold and wet on a winters day

Here’s a tip, Dennis. Get some clothes on. They keep you warm AND dry. Who is your favourite work colleague?
Lukasz for his humour

That’s what you need at work. What kind of thing do you like doing outside of work?
Reading, drawing and attempting to learn more languages.

Maybe you could show us your etchings one day! What did you want to be when you were growing up?
The same as my Dad – a university professor. And work in Africa

There’s still time Dennis, but you might want to go clothes shopping first… If you were an animal, what would you be? And why?
A giant squid, they are natural predators and are an endangered species.

Interesting choice! Favourite film?
Amelie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet et “French Comedy”

That’s a refreshing change from the usual Michael Bay movies we get on this page! Favourite grub?
Peri Peri Chicken and plantain cooked in palm oil.

Dennis, you can cook for us anytime! Favourite TV programme?
24 Hour News

Really? The same six stories on repeat ad infinitum?! Who would your dream skip chick be?
Daryl Hannah in Mermaid

And you’re currently wearing just as much as her in that film! Where would you take her out on a date?
Swimming.

Bit of a busman’s holiday for poor Daryl, there. Who would play you in a film based on your life?
A British unknown. Give a new face a chance.

There’s no chance of them staying an unknown when that film comes out, trust us. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.
A primary school teacher in Australia once said I was too stupid to teach. But I obtained an honours degree in 2007.

Blimey Charlie. A round of applause for this clever clogs. Well done Dennis, and I hope that teacher is out of a job! Tell us a joke:
Q: What is big, red and eats rocks?
A: A big red rock eater!!!

Oh Dennis, it was all going so well…
