Tripping Along The Ledge



lisa-hanniganInterviewed Lisa Hannigan yesterday for the Irish Times. A friend of mine who knows her vaguely tipped me off that she’s a very devoted member of some obscure sect of born again Christians. She hasn’t spoken about it publically before, he said. But if I raised the topic delicately, and pressed her if she at first denied it, then she might just go on the record about it.

And rather foolishly, I believed him…

    It’s not Animal House – i don’t live with the guy! It would be a lot easier if i did.

    Ah shucks that puts paid to my suggestion that you poo in an empty dairy gold tub and pour molten dairy gold around said turd before refrigerating in the usual way.

  4. Eoin Says:

    Yeah, i’m looking for a prank i can play on someone i neither live nor work with, someone i generally meet for lunch once every couple of weeks and who probably reads this blog. Oh, i’m gonna get him alright.

    How about you buy this asshole a ‘gift’ of a toothbrush – maybe he needs a new one – and somehow inject salt (or some sort of liquid saline solution might be more practical) into the actual packaging with a syringe. Either that or just concoct some excuse or other in order to move in with him, and then hit him with the traditional version of the salt/toothbrush stunt.

  7. Eoin Says:

    He lives with his fiance so not sure if moving in with them is feasable. Besides, as far as I can tell, they’re total degenerates living in their own filth type of arrangement… Not sure i want in on that.

  8. Ian Says:

    Kick him in the balls.

    If that seems too crude go for the more comedic option and throw a ball at his balls.

    LH went to a Prod secondary school. Perhaps that’s the cult to which your buddy was referring.

  9. Eoin Says:

    No Ian, he just completely made it up I think. Kudos on the “Prod” usage tho.
