but where's penfold?

Go and read Dangermaus. Possibly not very funny if you're not Irish, but absolutely hilarious if you are. I particularly liked the picture of the Celtic Tiger being turned away from the Department of Finance. And anything that takes the piss out of Paddy Casey is more than fine with me....

There are actual tears of laughter in my eyes - I especially liked the story about Dickie Rock's kung-fu rampage!

That one was particularly good!

Thanks for linking this - I didn't even know such a thing existed, but it is now firmly bookmarked!

Hee! That's brilliant.

I think I am persona non grata by association with Paddy Casey after The Sean Nos Shake And Vac Incident.

It was a couple of years ago after one of our gigs - myself and members of A Certain Band (oh, alright, mine) ended up in A Certain Pub, all rather giggly and excited, where Mr. Casey was also imbibing, surrounded by adoring acolytes. Anyway, the elfin one picked up his guitar and sang a song. Much reverent silence and shushing from the acolytes. Then he did another one. More shushing. And another one. Now, I could possibly deal with this level of silent attention if we were, I dunno, AT A GIG, but we were attempting to have a drink and a chat and the shushing was getting kind of annoying. At this point, certain bandmates of mine took matters into their own hands, and started also demanding silence and then singing lovely, note-perfect, emotional trad versions of advertising jingles. The sean-nos Shake and Vac one was particularly memorable, though Simon's haunting "My name is Rashers, see..." was also quite striking. There was also use made of a wig. Needless to say, Mr. Casey and fans were not happy....

Not very big and clever AT ALL, I admit, but I still remember waking up the next day with actual pains in my face because I'd laughed so much the night before.

On the contrary, I would say that that is both very big and very clever.

And well deserved!

Leedy, that story is wonderful! A friend burned a copy of his CD for me, and while I admit that I liked it at first, I got over it tootsweet... something to do with him finding all of his lyrics in a rhyming dictionary....

"It never rang true to me," said the Minister for Finance. "In between Norway and Luxembourg? Best standard of living in the world? Have you been in Carlow recently?"

That just cracked me up - particularly as I spent my formative teenage years in Carlow and have spent the rest of my life getting away from the hellhole.
