IT'S THE WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Erm...HOLD ON....


Some pics to take ye into the weekend...Today was very starnge...not only did the kettle pack up *sniffles* she was a great boiler and a hot worker...oh the cups of love that she spewed forth were so warming and WAKING!!!!! Had to get working on an auld coffee maker that was last used when Elvis had a recognisable waistline and boiled some scaldy from that...aaaahhhhh Now so calm...gotta say i do need my caffeine buzz in the morning especially when you are doing this job...

Most disturbing aspect of Friday was arriving at work and finding a psycho baby weilding a sharp object in my face...As you can see from the Pic below i first thought it was Stevie G regressing back to his early years and intent on an office rampage...Here's the "Scary Baby" -


Saw this car last week and thought it was one of the oldest cars i'd ever seen in this country especially in such excellent nick...

...that was until i saw this yoke at a Vintage Car Rally in Youghal at the weekend..Is this the oldest registered car in Cork?? Jaysus i'd say you'd be hard pressed to find any motor oolder than this in Ireland...unless the previous owner was Fred Flintsone sorry (O' Flintstone).

Grab yer sticks and skins it's the latest craze to hit Cork...

The Big Yin is set to play three nights starting tonight at The Opera House. It's been years since he played a gig in our fair city but he is gonna be rocking his Too Old To Die Young tour to the Leeside faithful and ye have snapped up all tickets. Here's a couple of classic Connolly clips for ye to enjoy...He is known for his use of certain naughty words so just fucking watch out if you're easily offended...

Here's some brilliant quotes from the bearded one:

My parents used to take me to Lewis' department store in Glasgow. They were skinflints, they used to take me to the pet department and tell me it was the zoo.

Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cozy, doesn't try it on.

Two guys are talking and one says to the other: "What would you do if the end of the world was in 3 minutes time?" The other one says, "I'd sh*g everything that moved...What would you do?" And he says, "I'd stand perfectly still."

I used to have Mad Cow's disease, but I'm alright Nooooooooow.

I'm a big fan of the Mars Bar Diet. You don't eat the Mars bar, you stick it up your arse and let a rottweiler chase you home.

Save the Trees?...Trees are the main cause of Forest Fires!

What is it with McDonald's staff who pretend they don't understand you unless you insert the 'Mc' before the item you're ordering? It has to be a McChicken burger...a chicken burger gets blank looks. Well, I'll have a McStraw and jam it into your McEyes, you f**cking McTosser!

And Happy Birthday to Noel Gallagher...he's 41 today...Here's a classic bit of Late Late Show footage with the mono-browed one and Gay Byrne chatting at the end of Noel's fantastic acoustic version of Live Forever..Enjoy

Here's a classic moment from the celebrations...Man of the Match Paul O Connell gives ROG a facefull of champers...not surprisingly O Gara doesn't retaliate..."Ah shucks thanks for the drink Paul" should be the reply if ever faced with the same situation!!

And we couldn't celebrate a Cup win without a Montage. "MONTAGE, MONTAGE F*CK YEAH"

And here's your MONDAY 'AAAH' MOMENT

Kittens 'adopted' by pet rabbit

Six abandoned kittens have found an unexpected new mother figure - a pet rabbit.

Veterinary nurse Melanie Humble took the three-week-old kittens to her Aberdeen home.

The kittens seemed to think Summer the rabbit was their mother and began to climb all over her and try to feed from her.

Efforts will be made to find the four males and two females permanent homes in the coming weeks.

Melanie, 29, told the BBC Scotland news website: "The abandoned kittens were handed in when they were about three weeks old and I took them home.

"Summer the rabbit was taken inside on Bonfire Night because of the fireworks and the kittens seemed to really like her and thought she was their mother."

We did this for you Tommy - God bless."

What a game!!! United pull away champions from a mad night that would not have looked out of place in a Hollywood script. Infact if a screenwriter pitched that idea with all the twists and turns and alternate endings they'd probably get laughed at...either that or they'd get Dolph Lungren to play the lead and send it straight to the bargain basket!!

Pupils sent home after turf prank
Clearing up the turf could cost hundreds of pounds

The entire sixth year of a school was sent home on their last day after pupils turfed over the floor of their common room.

Teachers at Banchory Academy in Scotland took the step after it was discovered some pupils had been drinking.

Aberdeenshire Council said it was decided to send all 100 pupils home.

A spokesman said there were concerns about disruption to exams taking place in the school. One 17-year-old pupil was charged with breach of the peace.

'Particularly disappointing'

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesman said: "Banchory Academy is extremely disappointed that the disruptive actions of a number of sixth year pupils has spoiled what was due to be an enjoyable day of activities to mark their last day of term.

"There was evidence that some pupils had been drinking and given the size of the year group the head teacher has had no choice but to send all of them home, both for their own safety and to avoid any disruption to standard grade exams under way today.

"This will be particularly disappointing for those sixth years who were genuinely looking forward to their last day of term."

The spokesman added: "A day of activities had been planned to but due to the actions of a minority of pupils this has had to be cancelled.

"This is a very poor way for pupils to end their school career and we hope those who disrupted the day understand the upset their actions have caused."

The cost of clearing up the turf has been estimated at hundreds of pounds.

Cider company Bulmers has confirmed that it has fired eight workers over a YouTube video.
The workers at its plant in in Clonmel in Co Tipperary were fired for what it described as serious health and safety breaches that were filmed on a mobile phone.

The men were seen jumping into a moving forklift, turning on vehicles and allowing them to move on the warehouse floor without drivers, spraying fire extinguishers and somersaulting from stacks of crates onto cardboard boxes. (I remember working in a Marzipan factory while at College and we used to used the back of the open delivery doors as goalposts for a bit of night shift 5 a side...difference is these muppets POSTED THE FECKIN VIDEO!!)

Those involved are all experienced, full-time workers.

The video was called 'Working Hard for Bulmers' and was set to the tune of the mobile phone ringtone 'banana phone'.

A spokeswoman said the company had almost 500 staff and jeopardising the safety of its employees would not be tolerated.
SIPTU, which represents the staff, said it would not be appealing the decision unless asked to do so by individual employees.

Maybe Bulmers should think about sending these lads to their own Comedy Festival -

Hope ye had a class weekend. Myself and KC spent Friday getting acquainted with a couple of canine superheroes down at the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind open day. I got an email from Niamh, one of the many members of staff doing a brilliant job asking if we would like to meet our canine equivalents down at the centre...Understandably we were very nervous about meeting Casey & Lenny but it all went really well and i have taken Lenny the Labrador's advice and i'm only going to be wearing a neck-scarf and a pair of shades from now on...well that's if the weather holds up or i grow a healthy covering of hair!!!

Here are some pics to check out:

LENNY THE LAB... All he's missing is a leather jacket...and maybe Olivia Newton John!!

Although we were both nervous the early tensions faded away and we were formally introduced...I felt like i was meeting the Pope...yes i am genuflecting

Casey & Lenny....I knew the lads reminded me of something...

Doggy Treadmill...genius

Blindfolded and ready for my practice walk...

I think Alf the Lab just spotted a cat...luckily he got me to the end of the course...mission accomplished!
