      That’s Coalisland’s tourist industry down the potty lol Shayna, do you know a thick buck by the name of Nishy Quinn, works in renewable energy? Brother and wife ran a local shop?

      1. Shayna

        @Zena, I may do. I’m thinking of all the Quinns in Coalisland. I’d be an O’Neill type, everyone has a nick-name – I’m one of “The Rebel O’Neills”.

        1. Zena

          @ Shayna

          Quinn and O’Neill are strong names around there, as you say every family has nicknames, yours is a fine one – I’ve heard some undesirable ones ;-)

          1. Shayna

            @Zena, yes, I’ve heard the undesirable names the O’Neills have been called. I know, or rather knew Donkey Quinn (RIP) . Father Joe Quinn, we’d be of an age.

    1. I'm "alright" Jack. Mad Jack is on annual leave.

      Frilly hasn’t the balls to go on it.Literally.

    1. bertie "The Inexplicable Pleasure" blenkinsop

      Yep, I think she’d be brilliant on it.
      Anne too.

    1. anne

      Who me? There used to be a ‘nice Anne’ too like: ) thanks all the same Zena n Bert.. we should try and organise a few of the regulars on at the same time, so it wouldn’t be so daunting. What j’ye think?

      1. Shayna

        I remember “Nice Anne”, I thought she was you in another guise. it appears not. There was another Anne, who appeared on this site who was horrible and not in a good sense.

        1. anne

          Yeah.. I think I remember her. I think a drew the wrath of the 2 other Annes at one point.. which wasn’t all that hard to do really. :)

          1. Shayna

            To be fair, drawing the wrath of commenters on BS whether, or not one’s name is Anne, or similar appears to be a right of passage.

          2. Johnny Keenan

            Anne Shayna Frilly and Zena would be great on the telly. Ye certainly have personalities and informed opinions.

          3. mildred st. meadowlark

            Hear that girls? Ye have personalities, all of your own. Treasure them, because not every lady is so lucky.

          4. bertie "The Inexplicable Pleasure" blenkinsop

            Anna Friel, Audrey Hepburn, Claire Foy…
            Am I living through a shallow Hal phase unbeknownst to myself?

          5. mildred st. meadowlark

            You certainly have a type, Bert. Impish, gamine, elegant.

            The best word to describe me is scrawny. Look like a scarecrow’s mad sister.

            I feel like such a let down.

            I don’t suppose you much resemble the rugged, dark-haired (possible wood-cutter vibe – not essential) man type man?

            Have we anyone here fitting that description?

          6. bertie "The Inexplicable Pleasure" blenkinsop

            Oh Mildred, the scarecrow’s mad sister look is SO hot for Fall ’17!

            Sexy lumberjack?
            Unfortunately not.
            I’m more like a fridge in a jumper if that’s any use to you :D

          7. mildred st. meadowlark

            And there I was hoping we could take the new season by storm with the hot scarecrow/sexy lumberjack combo.

            Ah well.

          8. Bertie "the inexplicable pleasure" Blenkinsop

            Strictly platonic Zena, and I have the court order to prove it.

          9. Zena

            @ BB

            Lol, I’d say he’d enjoy her big or small, short or tall :-)

            @ Bertie

            I thought the date was up on that barring order?

          10. Shayna

            @ Johnny Keenan I often wondered if I had a personality, with an informed opinion. How lovely to receive your affirmation. Also, sure aren’t you great altogether, the fine fellow you are.

      2. Zena

        @ Anne

        Yes, you. You’ve got a real edge, you’re up to date on all the political goings-on of the day and you’ve great one-liners, ah go on!!!!

        1. anne

          Lol..ah go on so shur.. has frilly got any of that tarmacadam stuff for the face to spare?

          1. Zena


            She’s a hape of it lol not that you’d need it :-)

            Coconut oil that you mentioned on the other thread, it comes in solid form, scoop some out with a spoon and it’ll melt in the pan – there’s no taste off of it either, I’d imagined everything would be coconut flavoured.

          2. anne

            ah thanks.. yeah i probably look 22..if you’re 200 yards away. :)

            i know the stuff you mean.. i use it for cooking.. just never put it on face like..well not the cooking variety anyway. i got coconut oil in a tub in the pharmacy before and you weren’t supposed to cook with it…

            I’ll get the organic stuff in the supermarket so..and I’ll just melt it in me hands. Tis quicker..

            I’ll let ye know the results.. i’m expecting chunky monkeys to be falling at my feet begging me for my number now.. no pressure. :)

          3. Zena

            Let the chunky monkeys stay where they are, less hassle paddling your own canoe, less earache too, lol.

            You’ll be glowing in no time and leaving the monkeys in the dust, like Christine Perri in her ‘Jar Of Hearts’ video ;-)

          4. anne

            Which was the right one? :) That’s a good tune all the same.

            Agree with you about the canoe..although look what happened Joany that time
            She nearly drowned and her knickers got a bit soggy. :)

  1. Yep

    Call me what you like but what it needs is a Rob_g, newsjustin, factchecker….

    I have enjoyed what I have seen so far but what it really needs is less of the hymn sheet IMO.

    It will but Ryan on the heels and muster up passionate debate rather than the one tone conversation.

    Still though…well done all involved. ‘Twas a great progression

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      I agree. Some dissenting voices would do well -not for the sake of balance, but for the sake of properly discussing a topic.

      1. Happy Molloy

        tbh, I don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon. I’ve been reading this blog, and most of its comments, for quite a while and it and its user base don’t “respectfully disagree” with anyone.

        a dissenting voice would be exposing themselves to an almighty amount of personal abuse

        1. Tony Groves

          I don’t know Harry.
          On other mediums I’m called all sorts of things. Here, most get that you can be à la carte ideologically.
          Consensus is prevalent. But group-think isn’t all powerful.

          1. Happy Molloy

            oh yeah, most do, just some of the other guys can be pretty loud :-)

            for the most part this is a good place to waste some time

          2. Happy Molloy

            and to be fair, you do see pure unbridled hatred shown to any user with an opinion that borders or right of centre, and often just centre. I think a lot would be unwilling to put their real identities through that, though I acknowledge the respect the contributors to broadsheet on the telly rightfully are shown.

          3. mildred st. meadowlark

            Where were you last night? The whole damn operation fell apart last night, and I’m blaming you.

  2. Sibling of Daedalus

    Just to let anyone who was watching earlier know that the show is back up and livestreaming now on the you tube channel.

  3. Frilly Keane

    tell ya one thing about t’night’s show
    Johnny Peace Man was brilliant
    his best show yet

  4. Frilly Keane

    C’mere girls
    Maybe t’was just as well there was an ” we’re experiencing technical difficulties ” section
    We were at fierce risk of getting seriously bawdy
    Especially the way Johnny Broadsheet was playing with the big mick yoke

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      Big mick was just fine, the way dear john was fondling it.

      What exactly does he do with it after hours?
