    This poor dog! These bloody bikers must really be doped up to their ears not to see a big dog crossing the street right in front of them. But I guess it's too much to hope that the idiot broke his neck when he fell?

    I'd seen #1 on Whedonesque already, but I could watch it for hours. I wish I knew how to make those videos (although probably my computer's not up to it anyway).

    And #13, of course, is my favorite. Hilarious. Which show is that from? I've never seen that before.

  2. Fence says:

    Samulli that is from Father Ted. Which is a classic C4 comedy show about 3 Irish priests. There are 3 seasons of it, and plenty of clips on youtube.

  3. Niall O'K says:

    Thanks for the mention (of I'm working on it at the moment and hope to have a site launched there within the next week or so.

  4. Jennie says:

    Hey! What a fun list! I also love your links. I'm going to go over and check some of them out right now! Happy TT.

  5. Fence says:

    Niall, I look forward to seeing it in action. I think the gardaí should have a number we can text photos of drivers behaving badly :)

    Enjoy Jennie

  6. Chris says:

    Can't wait to go the Shite Drivers site! Great list, happy TT.

    Happy TT!

  8. Poodlerat says:

    Thanks for the Father Ted clip—I'd forgotten what a good show that is.

    Happy TT!

  9. samulli says:

    Father Ted, huh? I'll have to check that out, it seems right up my alley.

  10. I had to watch the Firefly twice it was so good :-)

  11. Tink says:

    The Brigit link is great, thanks!

    Thank you for visiting my full moon TT.

  12. Niall O'K says: is now "live" and looking for contributors.

    ireland certainly have a good chance of winning it. the best chance since i can remember.

    they had a really good team in the last 6 nations and could easily have won it.

    what do you think of their chances?

  14. Fence says:

    Lots of Father Ted fans I see, it really was a great show.

    Jean Pierre, I am ever hopefull that we can win it. The likes of O'Driscoll and O'Connell and D'Arcy really deserve to win, but we don't have the depth that other teams might have, so any injuries and we are in trouble. Plus we're in a tough group, France and Argentina… Still fingers crossed.

  15. jean pierre says:

    that is one veeery difficult group. it seems really unfair, not only because argentina are in there, but because behind nz france and ireland must be the favourites.

    and i'd rate argentina above most teams nowadays. even above england. maybe just below south africa and australia?

    the group is not quite fair at all, especially if you consider the 2nd placed team gets to play nz!!

  16. Fence says:

    I know. That is what comes with using rankings that are four years out of date when deciding on the rankings of teams.
