Wedding Run Winners!!

Liam & Sharon before they headed off 'on the run' - to say they look a tad more excited in the after shots would be a bit of an understatement, for those pix check back here Monday...

What a day it was - big thanks to all and everyone that took part and made it all happen - Grace, Trout, Norina, Tanya, Tony, Louise, Claire, Debbie, Camilla, Louise, Jen, Eimear, KC, Lenny, Caroline, Vic, Phil, Stevie, Ken, Melissa, Liam, Sharon, Eoin, Sharon, George, Jane and the Rooster too! There really was a massive crew on call and with the sun lashing down it was just perfect - All four couples arrived in far quicker than expected but it was Liam & Sharon and Ken & Melissa who made it back fastest - So they faced the head to head for the overall prize - after a series of questions testing the ladies to see how well they thought their husbands-to-be knew them - get that? In other words the fellas were whisked away to be asked questions about their ladies and the ladies were then asked what they thought their answers would be - in the end Ken reckoned Melissa would least prefer to do the gardening and she thought he would have said cleaning and that, after a near flawless performance from Sharon, made Liam and his missus-to-be very very happy indeed. Being the sap that I am I almost feel worse for those that have simultaneously just lost than happy for those that have just won but that's the way it goes I suppose and congrats to the winners and commiserations to the losers but what a laugh of a day that was - hope it sounded good on air and something tells me we might just run this 'un again....stay tuned!

Wedding Run 1st Runners Up...

The unfortunate nearly-winners Ken & Melissa - tough luck but good job on getting so close - bet that doesn't really make 'em feel much better...

Wedding Run - The Couples!

Eoin Evolution & Sharon the famous texter (inside she's saying hello to you Tracy!)

Jane & George - the fearless ones!

Wedding Run Underway...

The happy bunch and me getting all Zen early in the morning!

Don't Mess With My Nerd...

Ask A Simple Question...

Courtesy of Steve the Bus Driver...

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all. One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut -glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom! When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist. "Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl. "Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the Park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter."

The Future of Nursery Rhymes...

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
The structure of the wall was incorrect
So he won a grand with Claims Direct.

It's Raining, It's Pouring.
Oh shit, it's Global Warming.

Jack and Jill went into town
To fetch some chips and sweeties.
He can't keep his heart rate down
And she's got diabetes.

Mary had a little skirt
with splits right up the sides
and everywhere that Mary went
the boys could see her thighs.
Mary had another skirt
'twas split right up the front
..But she didn't wear that one often.

Mary had a little lamb
her father shot it dead.
Now it goes to school with her
between two chunks of bread.

Simple Simon met a pie man going to the fair.
Said Simple Simon to the pie man
'What have u got there?'
Said the pie man unto Simon
Pies you dickhead.

Mary had a little lamb
it ran into a pylon.
10,000 volts went up its arse
and turned its wool to nylon.

Georgie Porgie Pudding and Pie
kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play
he kissed them too cause he was gay.

Jack and Jill
went up the hill
to have a little fun.
Jill, the dill,
forgot her pill,
and now they have a son.

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
And planned to do some kissing.
Jack made a pass
and grabbed her ass
Now two of his teeth are missing.

Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white and wispy.
Then it caught Foot and Mouth Disease
And now it's black and crispy

Go Green Team!

Haircut of the Year??

Click on the pic below to bring up on a seperate page then click on photo again until it begins to revolve and prepare to amaze friends and family with the results...well maybe not but hey anything to burn up another little bit of the working day...


Keep in mind that this actually happened!!!! This is someone who was moving from a claims office.

Okay so this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Superquinn Employee: 'Hello 'dis Superquinn, how can I help you?'
Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'
Superquinn Employee: 'What you want on the cake?'
Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.
Superquinn Employee: 'Dat all? Okay, Bye.'

Has the Iron Curtain Really Come Down?

Who Can Forget Their First Kiss?

So, it's your first kiss and several questions might come to mind:

Is it the right time?
Is anyone watching?
Does your partner even want to?
Is your breath fresh?

And... Should you use some tongue?

Then you lean in and just go for it!!!

The Wedding Run!

Later this month four couples are to compete for a dream wedding worth a cool €14,000 euro...

To be one of those couples you must either be engaged or plan to get engaged fairly rapidly (!!) and you must furnish me with a story laced with a dash of humour and doses of romance, perhaps the proposal itself, or the story of when ye first met, or meeting the parents for the first time or whatever it may be...get typing, get thinking and either mail me at or or even by text 086 827 33 36, even better again would be to tell the story on air in your own words!

It's quite a prize and quite a package and comes courtesy of us at Cork's Red FM and the Silversprings Moran Hotel...

Here's the rest of the sceal..

All four couples overnight thursday 22nd at the Silversprings Moran Hotel - the following morn, bedecked in wedding regalia, our Husband's & Wives-to-be are sized up on air by the Rooster crew of KC & Lenny, following which they will choose from four envelopes each of which equates to a specific Red FM vehicle on stand by to whisk our couples off to four different locations from where, stripped of all phones and money, our couples must make their way back to the Silversprings Moran Hotel accomplishing four tasks in four locations along the way - basically gathering something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue - first two couples back battle it out in our surprise head-to-head play off final for the overall dream wedding prize! What a laugh it is going to be!!!

Kittens Need Good Home...

Dear All

My cousin's cat had kittens and she was able to give away all but four of them.
I am trying to help her find homes for the last four.

I can't take one because I have a cat already, but if you could take
just one it would be such a help and the kittens could have a nice home.
Since she lives by a Nuclear Power Plant, I'll go pick them up for you.

Will you help? Here are pictures of the last 4 kittens.
