      Why just the continental breakfast when you can get rashers, sausages and black pudding on expenses?

      The brown shoes/black belt look is very popular with diplomats in Brussels.

      As is the striped shirt/striped tie look.

      A trip to Boyers (M&S if you’re really sophisticated) and a pair of rubber soled shoes and sure nobody will notice the stench of polyester. That’s where the Old Spice comes in handy.

      Twill catch on eventually. Sure everyone loves us. Begar bejaysus.

    I walked past the various press people outside there at around 3.30 and they were all tucking into 99s.
    Les quatre vingt dix neufs avec des cents et milles. Old Viz joke there for yizzers.

      I always prefer the Viz Top-Tips. What they could make out of an empty cigar tube and some any wasps/ bees always makes me laugh.

    None of those lads in the top photo look like they have missed any dinners recently.

      Or as me oul granda ‘id say ‘dey’d walk away from a rare shite so dey would….’

      politicians don’t trust politicians that are fit and healthy. it shows they haven’t been accepting free pints and meals from folk looking for favours and the like. that carry on isn’t on.

      Thanks, but find a forum. I doubt anyone clicks on your little ditties from here.

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        I did.
        It’s actually half decent, bit repetitive near the end though.

        @ Paywall;
        ‘I doubt anyone clicks on your little ditties from here’

        I doubt if anyone cares as much as you do about whether they do or not, me included.
        But thanks for your insight.

        PS.
        -You’re much more mannerly these days than you used to be with your other names. Don’t think it isn’t appreciated.

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            Bertie, we need to talk…

            This joke about jokes writing themselves, that was my joke a few days ago.
            I wrote that.
            These jokes don’t write themselves you know.

    Depressing.
    Wonder how long this hodge podge arrangement will last, assuming they can cobble something together in the first place?

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Ah yes, the dream….
      -That a bunch of [RETRACTED] can ‘cobble something together’.

      What an age we live in.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        We should be thankful to be blessed with the mediocre, looked after by the insensitive, ruled by the law breakers and prosecuted for exercising our rights.

        If it wasn’t for Paddy’s Day it would be hard to be proud.

    1. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

      hahaha – what a fupping circus act you are bud

      fair play though in fairness

      They’ve a lot more to be ashamed of than their fetching rolls of fat. ;-)

        1. Janet, I ate my avatar

          The nice thing about nudism is that you get used to it and start looking at people in a whole new way minus the props we all use to sell/misadvertise ourselves, be that a dreadful suit etc.

    I am not a bearded marketing cliché but if the Independent Rural Alliance goes into government with Fine Gael, it would be wise that they reconsider their title.

    Abbreviated logos are important, especially if the brand is already well established.

    1. Kieran NYC

      I doubt they’ll be an alliance for long. I can see a few of them running away the first unpopular vote that comes along.

      1. Father Filth

        ..well, not really running, a porcine trot maybe.

        I’d rather an election over 3 years of wet cardboard politics.

    2. coco

      Rural Independent Demented Eejits? “Ends gets the RIDE” would be a good headline too.

  5. Dolores Delorean

    I can’t see them being physically able to run away from anything. A bit of health consciousness and self restraint wouldn’t go astray. As the man says ‘healthy body healthy mind’. If their thinking is as flabby as their bodies then we’re all fupped.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      …here we go…

      I’m going to retire from this thread if you don’t mind.

    It’s past 2am.
    -15 cents is two shillings short of a dollar if he* thinks he* can start a debate at this hour.

    @14 cents;
    @13 cents;
    *Ooohhh, did I sting you?
    -Would you like me to sting you again?

    I could but I wont, but I can if you want.
    Be good.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      I know.
      I’m having an experimental, convoluted existential crisis at the moment.
      It’s confusing enough without you. Or me.

      BTW, what’s an ‘avatar’?
      Is it a big Smurf?

  7. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Go away.
    I’m having a good time.

    Get away, shoo…
    (Are you allowed say ‘shoo’ on Broadsheet? I hope so. Bugger it, I’ll risk it anyway and hope for the best.)

    Belly on them like a poisoned pup…

    As fat as a fool…

    They all look like if you threw darts there would be a loud squealing farting noise as they spiraled into the air and whizzed around, deflating.
