It’s Not Easy Being Green (and Red)

Right. I’m outta here. Got a call last night to see if I wanted to go on tour with Ian Dempsey and Mario Rosenstock and their Gift Grub thingy. I’ll be writing about it for the paper, you understand. (It’s hilarious the number of people I’ve told, who assumed they’d asked me to perform. What? On the back of this? Really!?) Can’t say that I’m an avid listener of the show, as I’m very rarely up before noon. But I did a bit of a crash course in it last night. It’s quite funny. The Michael Flatley bit is hilarious! (Thanks to Darragh, by the way, for bringing that to my attention.) But I find their Ben Dunne and Enda Kenny almost impossible to differentiate. Anyway, screw you guys, I’m off… yeee-haw!

    I’m sure they could incororate your Morgan Freeman “Andy Dufrayne crawled through a mile and a half of shit smelling foulness…” bit into the show

    Ahh… what a cutie. Is that the Mayo baby-gro? It’s not that bad at all. Looks like she’s just heard about the Cork result though!!

    Not a fan of that brand of humour but the Flatley piece last week was hilarious. Tell them to do more of that!
