  1. Paul

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Paul because I only had fruit for lunch today and I’ve got the sugar monkey on my back screaming bloody murder.

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      fruit is suger, your body doesn’t know the difference, it’s all in your head, spank dat monkeys mouth shut

  2. Harry Molloy

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter ‘Clampers Outside’ because he/she is happy, friendly and an example on how to be civil to those we disagree with

      1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

        Can everyone all just have a bunny? It’s the least we deserve for LJG

    1. Neilo

      I agree. Clampers is an absolute joy – I’ve had a few ding-dongs with Clamps and always emerged smiling.

    2. Old Bawn

      Seconded (probably 10th’d at this late in the day). Always entertaining, and he/she has a well calibrated moral compass. (OK, that means the same reading as my moral compass).

  3. Bertie Blenkinsop

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter “Leather Jacket Guy” because he might eat it with the tin foil on and wreck his fillings.

  4. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

    If we are going to be saps, then I think meadowlark should get it. She is always lovely and funny even in the face of complete stupidity and is touchingly honest about the state of her winter legs.

      1. meadowlark

        Jaysus lads I go out to get milk for an hour and look! Thank you. This is a bigger deal than Leo getting that Oscar lad last week.

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            Do nothing meadowlark.
            Hairy is the new sexy.

            But tell me, why do you need milk for an hour? I’m intrigued.

          2. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            Of course you do. That’s kinda obvious.

            I was wondering though, what do you do with the milk afterwards?
            If it’s still ‘fresh’ I could take it off your hands, for a nominal fee.
            (I’m not a rich man. Keep the price low and we have a deal.)

          3. meadowlark

            Well, I share it with my 300 cats, but they’re cocky little feckers so they need taking down a peg or two.

            I’ll swap you the milk for a live bunny to go with my chocolate one.

  5. Janet, I ate my avatar

    Please give broadsheet occasional commentator Janet, I ate my avatar the lindt bunny because my Mam once cooked my real bunny Nibbles when I was a kid ( he was digging up the garden and she’d from the country ) and I think it would help with the trauma to eat another bunny but this time with knowledge and purpose. ..

  6. Spud1

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Spud1 because it’s an eggcellent gift I could give to my wife which may help with my getting laid…

  7. 15 cents

    i went out with a mate of hers years ago, and she smokes tons of [cough] and is really cool. she mightnt anymore, that was about 8 or 9 years ago.

  8. Starina

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Don Pidgeoni cos she fights the good fight.

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Rotide cos I love the idea of the big ol’ catholic head on him chowing down on some pagan choccie.

    1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

      I feel more stupid for doing so but thanks for the nod!

    2. Murtles

      Don is a girl? I obviously haven’t been paying attention. I must log onto Broadsheet to tell….. wait, this is Broadsheet?

  9. :-Joe

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter :

    Whoever makes the funniest reply on this thread….


    Give it to me and I will take a pic of how happy it made one of many random homeless people that beg outside my place day and night…. most of them are fine and decent capable people, let down by the system that they need to give them a break or a shiny golden choco animal.

    The BS readers can choose the personalised message….


  10. Anne

    I’m going with the girls, for the day that’s in it.

    Give one to Don, as she’s intelligent, articulate, and has lots of patience for bozos, and funny.
    Caroline, as she’s also intelligent.. and funny too.
    Starina, she’s a bit irreverent – doesn’t take things too seriously, and also funny.
    Janet, I ate my avatar and Lilly and Nice Anne as they are also intelligent, funny commenters.

    Above all they have great patience for the misogynists around here.

    1. Anne

      Jesus, I forgot Frilly, on international women’s day n all. I often think of Frilly as a guy but that’s only because she’s got balls like. It does take some to write a column on here it has to be said.
      Ok, the love fest is over, back to calling each other c***s so?

  11. The Old Boy

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Sarah Murphy because she may find herself in need of an emergency sugar intake more than most.

  12. Fr Dick Byrne

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Fr Dick Byrne because he’s been off the rollerblading nearly 30 days now and they’re just….. So chocolatey

  13. Neilo

    If only – by the time The Riordans gave way to Bracken I was shaving and when Glenroe came along, I was well into carousing. Note: Miley and Dinny were pretty villainous pre-Glenroe, much more nuanced than their later characterization. Wasn’t Dick Moran in Glenroe not the Celtic Tiger precursor? I’m getting confused. Obviously an age thing.

  14. bisted

    …can’t believe it’s Lindt bunny time again…four bunnies to give away…mmmm. Well, one each to Legal Coffee Drinker, Sibling of Daedalus and Mick Flavin for services rendered and the last one to…

    1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

      Yes, 2 to Mick. LCD and Sib haven’t been on here for donkeys sadly

  15. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Please be careful.
    I gave one to a regular Broadsheet commenter (who shall remain nameless) and got more than I bargained for in return.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      I’m not messing.
      I don’t blame Broadsheet. I met her before it existed.
      I’m just saying be careful, that’s all.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        I’m sorry.
        I’m still bitter about it.

        Some things just won’t go away…
        …like this rash.

        1. John

          A rash that won’t go away, dude that sounds like you could have something serious.
          Have you been to the doctor? It is viral, has it gone to the brain?

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            Actually, I’m not totally sure what your second question means.
            I think the answer is an emphatic ‘NO’.
            (I’m not entirely comfortable with my earlier answer. Forgive me.)

          2. John

            What did the doctor diagnose you with bad at…..?

            I’d get that bitterness looked at too, it can’t have good repercussions for you at all at all.

  16. Tucker Done

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter dav because BLUESHIRTS!!!!!!!

  17. Drogg

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to none of these fat f*^$ers because they don’t deserve it, then leave it up to crumlin children hospital and make some kids happy.

  18. meadowlark

    I nominate dav for utter dedication to the cause. If anyone deserves a gold star, sorry, bunny, it is he

  19. Drebbin

    Please give a LIndt bunny to whichever commenter wins that Omniplex voucher, because it’s been four months since the lines closed at 5 and the suspense is killing me.

  20. LisaP

    Please give a personalised Lindt gold bunny to me because Clampersoutside can’t have ALL the bunnies, can they?

  21. bertie blenkinsop

    Why couldn’t you have ran this competition the other week when posts were disappearing off the site left, right and centre?

    That way I could have consoled with the illusion that lots of people wanted me to have a bunny but their posts of effusive praise had simply vanished.

  22. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I nominate Bertie.
    I read all of his comments and a couple of them were funny.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        I take it back.
        He’s getting weird now and I don’t like it.

        You try to be nice once in a blue moon and then this happens.

        It takes Allsorts.

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          I like this thread.
          It’s very friendly.

          I’m going to go away for a bit and get me one a few o’ dem Gravatar things that all the cool commenters have. If I am successful I shall be back with a bounty.

          I’m not very good at these things, until someone says it ‘can’t be done’.
          Just watch.

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            That’s right.
            The blenkinsops lived around the corner. They had a dog with three legs.
            Man, that was funny when we were growing up.

            Of course it all went PC after that and you aren’t allowed talk about it nowadays.
            -Still, your dog was funny.

            Did he die when the bus ran over him?

  23. Same old same old

    Saps deleted my comment because I lamented the tedious back-slapping, groupthink and circle jerk

  24. Catherine McEntee

    Please give a personalised Lindt gold bunny each to badatm s m & SO SO for their witty input on here.

      1. Catherine McEntee

        Of course, he’s your hero but you won’t admit lol im surprised you didn’t nominate him too….

        1. Same old same old

          Lol good at masochism to judge by the self-flagellation you indulge in here

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            @ SOSO;
            You don’t get it, do you?
            It;s like you have the two end-pieces of a three-piece jigsaw puzzle, and you’re denying that you’re missing the bit that goes in the middle. It doesn’t exist, does it? You don’t need it, do you?

            I don’t mind.
            Nothing bothers me.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      @ Catherine…

      I use a name like sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq to filter out the people who DO respond to me, but CAN’T USE COPY/PASTE.
      I ignore them first, then I ignore everyone else.

      You seem nice.
      Are you really a girl?

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          No you’re not.
          Let me be nice to you;

          Did you know that your surname actually means ‘Son/Daughter of NT’.
          -That is Windows NT, which gave us…
          -Windows XP, the most popular and successful Operating System of all time.

          You are a legend.

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            This is a love-in thread.
            We’ll have no trouble animosity here.
            -A love-in thread, for love-in people.

            Interesting fact;
            Did you know that the original name for Royston Vasey was Roy Chubby Brown, until they found out that a horrible comedian had already used that name?

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      There’s a horrible process you have to go through if you want one.
      Remember, I’m trying to figure out how to get at least three, and I’m drunk.
      It takes time.

      And you’re distracting me.
      -I’m not giving out. I still fancy you. You’re the one with the hairy legs, aren’t you?

      1. Catherine McEntee

        Do you have to almost sign your life away to get one? I suppose uploading your own requires the same palava.

        Cheers, enjoy your few sherberts

        No, you’re mixing me up with meadowlark

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          Mixing you up with meadowlark is my ultimate goal, but let’s not be presumptuous, okay?

          You have to sign up with WordPress to register a Gravatar.
          Then you have to remember your passwords, and that’s the tricky bit.

  25. Catherine McEntee

    Definitely not something to be doing when one’s under the influence, wait until you’re in a more lucid state.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      i LIKE YOU.
      Hang on…fixed.

      I like you.
      You use words like ‘lucid’.
      I do that too, but not like you do.
      It gives off an air of intelligence, like there’s a remotely attractive person behind it all.

      But it’s ALL shenanigans at the end of the day.
      I have a bus to catch, to meet a stunner from Lithuania who can get me cheap smokes.
      I’ll be about an hour.

      There will be no romance so don’t get any ideas.
      The cream for cleaning up this rash is too expensive already. I can’t afford another.

  26. Soft like

    Is it too late, I have been asleep and I just woke up from a dream where i was being chased by a giant chocolate bunny. It ate me in my dream now I want revenge in real life.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      It’s never too late.
      -Look at me, back earlier than I thought I would be.

      I met a bloke on the bus back home.
      He had a lovely leather jacket on him. It had a hood, and I know that makes it sound ‘iffy’ but you should’ve seen it. Elasticated cuffs slim-fit, comfortable and casual, yet stylish at the same time.
      I asked him where he got it. He said ‘Pennys, €25.’
      I said I’ll give you €50 for it.
      He said ‘No’ and asked me to leave him alone.*

      *Not his actual words, but you get the jist.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        Now that I think about it a bit harder I realise what he saved me from and I appreciate his foresight.
        A white person like me would look like a dick wearing that jacket, but that man could swing it like he was born wearing it.

        I just wanted to be cool, for €50.
        Is that too much to ask?

  27. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Sorry Catherine.
    They’ve deleted all my earlier posts.
    I knew they would.
    I don’t blame them. Not a bit.

    From now on you should just click on my username.
    Plug in earphones or people will look at you funny.

  28. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I used to link a different video to my username all the time.
    Nobody noticed, and thinking back on it now I don’t know why I ever thought any reader would notice before The Management stepped in.
    On the other hand, I don’t play the ‘look back’ game. I have no idea how much of what I post gets deleted unless it’s dynamic.

    There are the occasional clowns who revel in telling me.
    It means nothing to me.
    Oh, Vienna.

  29. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Moustaches are unsettling.
    That’s a fact.

    I could elucidate further, but I pride myself on my brevity.

    Yes, I have a moustache.
    I know what I’m talking about.

  30. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Take it easy Broadsheet, please.
    I know I’m probably almost on your long, long list of ‘Ones To Watch’.
    I used to be a bit of a maverick.*

    I’m going to tone down on the condescension, okay?

    *Look it up.

  31. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    but yeah….

    Wouldn’t it be entertaining if we were all sh…
    If all of us was shaggggg….
    -Slow down…

    Wouldn’t it be great if we were all getting on together?

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      I like breaking the rules.
      On sites like this there are boundaries, but that’s okay.
      I get away with what I can, and I accept that.

      Most of me stuff get deleted.
      So what?

      I know I’m not a bad man.
      I know some of my guff stuff will get past the arbitrary filters.

      One of them is looking up the meaning of ‘arbitrary’ as we speak.
      It’s all cool.

      In case you didn’t get the link to the…

      Just click my name

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Frilly, cop on.
      I support almost everything you ever said. I think.

      I have difficulty with your loose use of language, that’s all.

      Call me a pedant if you like, but say it in English.

  32. Murtles

    Please give a personalised Lindt Gold Bunny to Broadsheet commenter Murtles because his chronic lateness causes much embarrassment at home and it came to a head when he gave out chocolate Santas on Valentines Day. Maybe an Easter Bunny might get him ahead of the posse for this year instead of the whole “their Halloween Eggs, I swear” incident from 2015. Now that 7.45 closing date refers to July 45th right?
