Today’s weather forecasts all show
A definite sub zero low
So always think twice
Before driving on ice
Dress warmly and mind how you go.

There are pictures on twitter that show

Some philosophers say there should not
Be a ban on the high tech sex bot

And add that they’re also quite hot.

Instead of old Gerry

Sand on Ashleam Beach, Achill Island, County Mayo has returned

On an island far out to the west
The locals all know that they’re blessed
A new beach at Dooagh
Now Ashleam makes it two
In the one year. Now who could have guessed?

Has said that he gets angry when
The Chinese tradition
Of folk superstition
Eclipses his party’s great men.

Pope Francis, with inmates in Philadelphia, will visit a prison during his time Ireland

If you’re worried that you cannot cope
With the fear that you won’t meet the Pope
Just bungle a crime
And make sure you do time
Then sit in your cell and just hope.

A Neolithic jar, possibly used for brewing wine, found at the site of Khramis-Didi-Gora, Georgia

In Georgia they’ve found a strong sign
Of stone-agers fermenting wine
Eight thousand years old
And best served quite cold
To accompany: mammoth is fine.

The card Facebook blocked after deeming it an “adult item”

This simple and pure Christmas card
Was filtered by Facebook, and barred
But if there’s some reason
To censor the season
I can’t see it, and I’ve looked quite hard.
