Last night.

Gardaí in Portlaoise seized over €2.1 million worth of MIND-Altering cannabis herb cunningly concealed in a delivery of vegetables, as part of Operation Tara. One person was arrested during the search operation and is currently detained under drug trafficking legislation in the hope they might ‘spill the beans’.

The streets are a little safer this morning.


Uli Westphal’s Mutato Archive is a collection of fruit and vegetables which display weird variations of shape: not as a result of pesticides or GM, but thanks to the natural vagaries of nature.

‘The complete absence of botanical anomalies in our supermarkets has caused us to regard the consistency of produce presented there as natural. Produce has become a highly designed, monotonous product. We have forgotten, and in many cases never experienced, the way fruits, roots, and vegetables can actually look (and taste).’

Long live agri-diversity! Just a Pot Noodle for me, please.
