    What is the best Easter Egg? A lively debate is needed folks.

    Or yolks, whatevs. I’m good.

    …may I offer a word of warning for participants on BTV tonight.
    As you know our Constitution enshrines regulations to prevent blasphemy. The provision was extended in recent years to cover all religious beliefs rather than the original christian faiths.
    Should any of your participants indulge in a hang or bacon sandwich ( pulled pork roll or pork belly burritto for the hipsters) they will be guilty of causing offence and liable for prosecution under the blasphemy laws…one bite on a sausage roll after midnight and you will be gratuitously giving offence to most of the world’s religions…islam, judaism as well as christianity…

        …I had battered sausages from the chippy…someone said that I would probably get of on a technicality anyway because of the low meat content in the sausages…

          I’m just having a munch on a rasher sambo with a hit cuppa tea. I can’t feel guilty about something so tasty.

    I’m being serious here.

    There’s a reason why Johnny A/K(eenan) is the star of this show, and it isn’t because he looks like he’s 47.
    (AK 47? No? Suit yourself then.)

    He shoots from the hip and always hits the target, mostly bullseyes.
    He makes it look easy…because he’s being natural.

    Everyone else is a little bit too uptight and self-conscious.
    I’m not slagging off any other participant…far from it. I admire your balls, especially the ladies.

    I just would love a more informal presentation, and maybe some lighter topics.

    If you’re absolutely desperate tonight, I’ll do it.
    Put me on the Subs bench.

    I’d love to do next week’s 420 one, but I know I’ll end up losing my job if I did. I’m at home tonight. I’m not in work, I’m not drunk, I haven’t taken any drugs and I’m not rolling a joint with my other hand while I type this

    Hang on a minute…
    Someone just got murdered a few doors away from me, here in Jobstown.
    This is the scene outside my house 15 minutes ago.;

    All I’ve been told is he was in his 20s. He’s from a neighbouring estate called Glenshane and was chased in here and hit with a car.

    I’m in shock, as are my neighbours.

    I enjoyed tonight’s episode.
    It was a helluva lot less clunky and incoherent than earlier episodes might have been.
    – That’s a compliment, so shut up.

    Keep on fighting the fight and the fear.


        I haven’t got a buzz so I haven’t got a clue.
        I’m drunk and on drugs if that helps…

        Plus, a young man was murdered a few doors away from me last night.
        I was unsettled.

        You can see my house in the first item on RTÉ News today.


    I realise I’m too late for this week and too early for the week after next, but here’s a thought…

    What about rural communities of Ireland being decimated, robbed of their Post Offices, Garda stations and hopes of ever getting a swimming pool?
    This is NOT a joke..

    Wasn’t the premise of BOTV to give voice to the unheard?
    An intelluctual version of Ask Joe if you ask me, but I digress.

    We need more of the little people, less of the echo chamber.

    I’m badatmemes and I’m drunk and on drugs. I approve this message.


    Today is Good Friday.
    I’m doing my best to drink alll the bottles of whiskey I bought yesterday as fast as I can.
    It’s not easy when you’re stoned, so I did some coke.

    My question is…
    Weekends are weekends, yeah? It gets kinda dull around here at the weekend.
    I think I should write a column for the weekend, a la Frilly, but in English.
    No offence Frilly… I love you. You know it.

    But yeah…
    If five people say yes I’ll say fupp off to the fifty who say no.
    I’m just as bored as you. Let me entertain meself.

    What do you think, earthling?


    This would be a good t-shirt…

    DO YOU

    You can have that for free. Just send me a hoodie and we’re quits. Medium, in black if you have any left.


    I was joking earlier on, asking for approval from five of you to be granted permission to write.
    It seems funny now. Weird.
    I don’t need permission from anyone, do I?
    Consequences are for other people.

    I’m drunk, I’m stoned, I’m doing coke, I’m in work, I’m bored, I’m impervious, I’m presumptious, I’m not pretentios but I lie a lot, I’m unimportant and I’m not sure where to begin, but sure let’s see what happens, eh?

    I’m going to write something.

    Something for the weekend… wink, wink…

        This young person has informed us, more than once, that he lives in Tallaght. He has in the past taken exception to the slurs and cheap shots taken by some members of this forum against the good people of Tallaght. (quite rightly) If I was a resident of Tallaght, I’d be asking him to keep shtum about where he lives.


          I might be infantile but I’m far from young, and further from giving a fupp.

          But if what you’re saying is that you would rather dissaccotiate yourself from me, that’s cool.
          I’ll still be here when you cop on, darling.


            Booti Shaker, reach into your soul…
            We all play a part. We all have a role.
            But it shouldn’t be forgotten
            That your roots are kinda rotten
            And they grow into/òut of your own hole.

            (JUST BECAUSE MY liMERICKS ARE brilliant DoESN’T MEAN I CARE. THIS 5ITH FALLS OUT OF ME AR53 FASTER tHan I Can type. Just 5ayinb)


    Shriek Mebeauty, you sound like a nice girl. I dont want to fight with you before I call in to see your Mother.

    It would be great if you just STFU.
    You’re putting me off me stride and your Mammy doesn’t like that.

  12. Me&

    Hush…I know…
    I should NEVER have said STFU. That was rong wrong.

    I’d like to claim Iggy Pop invincibility. I have no idea what I’m doing, it seems to be working, I am an idiot, I can’t sing, I dance like a Ford Cortina and I want to go home. Hang on a minute… I AM home.
    Hang on a minute… I’m not…
    Where am I?

  13. Me&

    Man cannot live on cheese sandwiches alone.
    Man beside him cannot sttand the smell of previous man’s farts. It’s not his fault.

    Sorry…wrong thread.

  14. Me&

    Hey, Mr. and Mrs Moderator,
    Thank you for not deleting some of my comments, including this one.

    It’s okay…I know…I understand…I get it…
    I just don’t care.*

    *a lesser man would’ve said ‘I couldn’t give a bollicks’.
    Not me sweetheart. I have respect for all kinds of people…darkies, wimmins, fairies, truck-drivers, teenagers, D4 residents, travellers and foreigners. And Broadsheet rea …
    I draw the line at politicians though. They’re different.

    1. Me&

      I actually like Foreigners and the last time I got me hole it was off a Traveller.
      Then I rode his wife.

      Then I rode his horse.
      It rocked.


    1. Me&

      Thanks Sheiky,
      I’m still having problems understanding what happened last night.
      I try to deal with heavy stuff through humour, but today I don’t know what to say.

      I never knew the poor man who was murdered, but I’m confident that that his killers will be caught.
      And soon.

  15. Me&

    Hey, I’m sorry if it seems like I’m hijacking this tradegy for attention.
    I’m not doing that.

    I’m trying to deal with it in my own head. That’s all.
    My teenage kids live here in this estate.

    What would you do?

  16. Me&

    ‘Anger is an energy.’
    Thank you Sir Lydon. Do they have butter in LA? (Don’t answer that.)

    Releasing your anger is (probably) called catharcism.
    I call it ‘talking to meself on the internet’.
    Please excuse me while I cathaterise meself.

    No worries, go ahead. You deserve it.

    Thanks. I’m finished now.
