The one with brown shoes

Men of Cork.....are you there???? Do you have brown shoes???? You do??? Oh mother of Jesus. Throw them out now. Quite a number of ladies have came out of the wood work since a topic the other night regarding Corkonian women have too high standards. And one of the prevalent issues was brown shoes. Men who wear brown shoes are too grandad like and it's a major no no. What follows is a selection of comments we received.

"Vic, brown shoes on a man is like eating a fist of lemons. It just doesn't happen"

"Vic, Brown shoes on men is the most disgusting thing ever. You have more chance of getting into my pants than a bloke wearing brown shoes."

"Vic my boyfriend once came home with a pair of brown shoes. I slept in the spare bedroom until he promised to take them back. And theres nothing wrong with having a little standard, after all we are human"

"I've been listening there for the last half hour and would someone ever take these stuck up, brown shoe hating bitches outside and shoot them"

"Vic I've 1 pair of brown shoes and I normally only wear them to weddings or something formal. I've been single since the day I bought the first pair, a year ago. You don't think its connected do you?"

"Victor, any man that comes up to me looking for a jump has less of a chance if he wearing shit colored shoes"

I know in the past we've had bizarre topics on, but never before have we encountered such hatred and disgust for blokes who wear brown shoes. Personally I have a pair of tan hush puppies which I will now go off and hide!
Otherwise, I can always put in a call to the council and see can we organise a mass, legal burning of brown shoes in Pana.

The one with Derren Brown

I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but due to boredom last night when I came home, I decided to watch Derren Brown attempt to stick a load of people to sofas, without the aid of superglue, ropes or bodily fluids.

After about 5 minutes I got bored as I felt they were only milking the time for the inevitable last 5 minutes. So, I fast forwarded to the end. Well to the part where he was about to glue holes on seats. I followed the instructions, watched the 1 minute video which consisted of a white screen with circling light grey lines. Then Brown came back on screen telling me I should be stuck. Much to my amazement, I wasn’t stuck, but at the same time I found it incredibly difficult to get up. After about 10 seconds I was free and figured it was worth another go. So out with the remote again and rewind. I didn’t spend as much time watching Brown go through his spiel this time and no joy. Nothing. I was able to get up off the couch with no effort. Nothing holding me down or whatever.

Being a bit disappointed I figured it was worth one more go. So I watched all the instructions and had another go. And fuck me. Wedged to the couch. Couldn’t get up at all. It was a bizarre experience. After about 2 minutes I was able to crawl up and then all was back to normal. To be honest I was a bit sceptical about it, but when it happened  I was fuckin blown away. Unlike the people in his studio who looked so strained I thought they were trying to shit out a small ocean liner, I wasn’t completely glued to the couch, but I couldn’t get my ass more than an inch upwards.

Thankfully I didn't have to call out or more than likely yell out to the sleeping wife in case it all went horribly wrong, where I had visions of a fire crew cutting me out of a couch. There a better ways to get stuck to a couch particularly a leather one, but this was pretty impressive and not as messy.

The one with express checkouts

Well, contrary to the rants yesterday here I am with another afternoon blog post! Well I might have been here earlier, except some fool decided that an express checkout was just like a normal checkout. Normally these things are 10 items or less, but this poor clown had 27 items. She then took forever to get them out of the basket and of course she pays for them by counting out 5 cents and 10 cents.

I wonder where do these dopes think they are? Does a tiny express checkout look like the big ones? It must do for some people. Granted the 10 others in the queue had only a sandwich or a drink, so obviously they were in the know. Equally, the individual behind the till should have said "No Dice". Whats the point in having an express checkout when thick, ignorant gobshites hold the entire shop up, but their stupidity and ignorance. Its like the people out there who think that the radio is "talking to them and no one else". At the end of the day I laugh it off from the radio perspective, but in the express checkout scenario I really need someone to come up and give me a whole dose of strength!

The one with the end

For those of you that blog did you ever just get sick to shite of it! As enjoyable as it can be, and this blog is pushing on, 5 years in November. Today is just one of those days where If I had a gun I'd shoot it! No particular reason, just having a moment of weakness. Maybe its because I went off and painted a part of the new shed that I forgot about. Maybe its because I spent an hour arseing around on the net this morning and generally find blog updates in the afternoon a chore! Hence alot of the stuff gets on here before lunch!

Going back to the shed part though. Maybe its an urge to break free from not only blogs, but the internet. Go back to nature. Plough the garden, plant some flowers and paint sheds! When life was simpiler. And all the postman delievered was a few bills as opposed to boxes off shit I don't need that have been purchased on ebay.

So I'm giving up the internet and all that goes with it.

Laters........







Oh well, that lasted all of 3 seconds. Its amazing when you struggle with a blog post what mundane shit you can come up with. Anyways, meant to post this yesterday but...
Quality stuff!

The one with Junior Cert night

Well another JC night in Cork, and thankfully, from what I understand it went off without any major incident. Sure there were drunk teenagers, some carried into ambulances and there seemed to be plenty "getting it on" down alleyways and the likes but no samurai swords or full scale riots this year which is a good thing, obviously.

People are all too quick to criticise the coverage saying its a disgrace and we're jumping on the bandwagon and so on. Fact of the matter is whats broadcast is a realistic representation of what is going on. Be it drunk teenagers or ones that just went out and had a good time with no drink or drugs. And hats off to the latter, which in turn as usual are the majority. Since we started JC night coverage there has been a steady decline in the madness that's gone on. Maybe coincidental, maybe directly related or maybe not. Either way if "jumping on the bandwagon" that we created, has helped teenagers to cop on and parents to be a bit more vigilant, then that's a damn good thing.

For the ones that ended up in the back of an ambulance, here's hoping it wont happen again! And for the "gentlemen" patrolling the streets of Cork last night looking for an opportunity to molest and grope people who are worse for wear, the sooner they go 6 foot under the better!!!
Anyway, well done to all JC's who done well and had a good safe night.
