Marine Biologist Kevin Flannery with a rare moray eel found off the coast of Kerry
When swimming it isn’t ideal
To bump into a wild moray eel
So stay far from Kerry
Or else you may very
Well end up as a fish’s meal.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May (centre) after voting in yesterday’s General Election
An election’s a smart thing to call
If you think that you’ll stay standing tall
Now the last song is sung
And the parliament’s hung
And the Tories ran into a wall.
Earlier: He Hung On
At polling booths in the UK
The Brits make their choices today
Will enough feel the urge
To join the red surge
And steal victory from T May?
A female peacock goes on the rampage yesterday at a California liquor store
It can be a tedious bore
To toil in a small liquor store
But it gets lively when
An angry peahen
Throws all of the booze on the floor
‘Professor Poo’ workbook for Japanese primary school children.
One thing that each child knows is true
Is that learning’s a hard thing to do
But out in Japan
They’ve thought of a plan
To fill up the textbooks with poo.
US President Donald Trump announces America’s withdraw from Paris Climate Deal at The White House yesterday
Now Donald has boldly said he’ll
Pull out of the big Paris deal
He thinks the solution
Is much more pollution
As climate change cannot be real.
Our President thought of a scheme
To give everybody ice cream
So down by the pier
He drew a loud cheer
When he finally realised his dream.
We’re trying, but can’t find a way
To predict what the Donald will say
He grabs his phone and
With his tiny hand
Makes “covfefe” the word of the day.
Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May during last night’s Battle For Number 10
The chattering classes all say
That Corbyn did better than May
There’s a mountain to climb
In bugger all time
Can Jeremy now find a way?
A dolphin’s carcass was found at the Parchment Square Student Accommodation complex on the Model Farm Road, Cork.
Some animals’ rights types have said
That a dolphin, even if it’s dead
Shouldn’t come to a bash
Where a lad on the lash
Might carry it over his head.
