Some US republican lawmakers have nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize

Some cunning Republican guys
Think Donald should get a big prize
For trying to increase
The chances of peace
In Korea. Do you think that’s wise?

Facebook will take on Tinder with new dating features

If your customers think that you’ve spied
On them and have something to hide
“Don’t worry,” says Mark,
(He’s a very bright spark)
“Just give them the chance of a ride.”

A since-deleted tweet from Baron Kilcooney, former Ulster Unionist Party MP John Taylor

A half witted unionist lord
Likes to tweet racist bile when he’s bored
So old John Kilclooney
And his tired and puny
Brain farts should be simply ignored.

Amber Rudd, who has resigned as Britain’s Home Secretary

Let’s face it, we all think it’s good
That we’ll see no more of Amber Rudd
Could Prime Minister May
Depart the same way
Fingers crossed, ’cause she certainly should.

From left Donald Trump (United States president), Moon Jae-in (South Korea president) and Kim Jong-un (North Korea leader)

We’ve waited for the moment when
The two leaders shake hands and then
When Moon talks to Kim
Can he persuade him
To build a nation once again?

The heart of St Laurence O’Toole was stolen from Christ Church Cathedral in 2012

Was stealing this old body part
A bold act of Dadaist art?
Now after six years
There’ll be clapping and cheers
As St Laud’s Chapel gets back its heart

Billionaire John Magnier (top) and his Amedeo Modigliani nude (above) valued at $150m

John Magnier, who’s known to be shrewd
Once purchased a well painted nude
Now it’s back up on sale
And he’ll have a whale
Of a time with the cash he’s accrued

Irish Water propose to pump 300 million litres of water daily from the River Shannon at Parteen Basin (above) to meet the future water demands of the Greater Dublin area

Irish Water have said that it’s best
That they build a big pipe to the west
It’s worth it, they think
To let Dublin drink
But the locals are far from impressed

How to talk to your kids about sex?
That’s a problem that’s bound to perplex
But don’t worry, it’s fine
They’ll just go online
And get sucked into porn’s dark vortex

Anita Sethi (right) was told by BritaIn’s Prince Charles she didn’t look like she came from Manchester

Charles thinks that you shouldn’t be brown
If you come from Manchester town
Which is racist and sad
And just like his dad
The bigoted miserable clown
