    Don’t want to be the mawkish keyboard warrior. However, as a 36 year old person, am sad about Victoria Wood. She had a big media/female/media impact. 62 far too young regardless of such achievements. Enjoy your lives.

    No Indo and Times again?

    Examiner reckons Irish Water is preventing the Fianna Gael merger but that won’t wash (pun) as most of the good jobs went to Labour supporters. Now how did that happen eh? Remove the expensive billing system, a minor procurement department and what is left is about 300 redeployments on same T&Cs. This is what is holding up the formation of a government? No it is not.

    Seriously… it is not.

    RIP comic genius Victoria Wood.

      So throw out the billing system they already spent millions on just because you don’t want to pay, eh?

        Oh, Kieran, do you have some sort of emotional attachment to this “expensive billing (or bilking) system”.? You seriously suggest we must continue to throw good money after bad because so much has been criminally squandered already? I take it you’re an IW employee.

      The papers come up at different times. Indo and (either) Irish Times rarely in first batch.

    Hey Sheik Yah,

    (can I call you Sheik Yah? Yeah?)

    I don’t know what ‘Praetorian’ means, It doesn’t matter.
    -Wait a minute…Praetorian is the commenter’s name…I thought it was an adjective.

    No. No, no, no, no, no.
    That was obviously aimed at KFC*.
    Praetorian is cool. Don’t mess with Praetorian.

    *You know, the guy who lives with his Mammy but pretends he’s living in New York? YEAH, that guy!

    This is a tired old joke, but unfortunately it’s still true.

    How do you know someone’s been to New York?
    They keep telling you about it.

    Kieran, please…
    I know this is out of order.
    If someone said this to me I wouldn’t be nice in my response to them.

    As a massive favour to ME, and I’ll repay you in as much Internet Gold as you can carry, please, please, please…

    Drop that ‘NYC’ piece of your name.
    I can’t explain it, but it makes me want to argue with you before I read what you wrote.

    Go on, do it.
    For me.

    I think we could be mates.
    …but that ‘NYC’ thing….that’s a deal-breaker.

    Wire brush and Dettol.
    Come back when you’re done.

    This is just a test.

    Rotide, Anne, Kieran NYC, Bodger.
    -Put your hand up if I just said your name.

    -I don’t believe it!
    -Four out of four!

    I should be elsewhere.
    I’m wasted here.

    I like playing about on this site, testing the limits and stuff.
    I think I’ve better things to do.

    It was fun while I was here.
    Catherine has shown me a new direction.

    I shall now bow out gracefully, (Ha!) and leave you all alone.

    But I still love you all, and you all sill but love me.
    I will come back with a bang.

    I have stuff to do, slowly.
    I’m a perfectionist.

    No more sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq.

    Goodbye and thanks for all the fruit.

      Don’t go.
      Your comments bring a smile to my face in the mornings.
      I actually do look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to while I’ve been sleeping.

    Here lads, I think he’s serious.
    No messing.
    I think he means it this time.

    What? Is this the first time? Whatever…

    I still think this is the last ever sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq post.
    I hope I’m wrong.
    I know I’m right.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      It was supposed to be ME who said that.
      Did you forget to switch avatars again?

      This is the VERY last time anybody* will post as sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq.
      Sell all your shares immediately.

      *apart from pretenders.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        You forgot again, didn’t you?

        Okay…this is definitely the very, very last sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq post on this site, forever.
