(Ok, before people get huffy with me, we get the paper in work; I neither went with nor against your boycott.)

On page 18 of the main section of the Sindo today (30th October), there was an article about Leviathan and the way to bag intelligent boys.

In this article, it was said that I have met 32CountyRepublic. This is a bald-faced lie! I demand restitution!

The next sentence said something about a Shinner hooking up with a PDer. Not only does this imply that I would sleep with a Shinner (ewwwww...), but horror of horrors: it implies that I'm a PDer! :shock2:

Such sloppy journalism is unacceptable. This wrong must be righted. I demand satisfaction.

I brought the Sindo today in a fit of Marxism.



Groucho Marxism.

"Whatever it is, I'm against it"

Good plug indirectly for p.ie BTW. Remember, my more right-on fellow posters, all publicity is good publicity.

After an extensive trawl of the Membership list, I have ascertained to my satisfaction that there is no such user as 32CountyRepublic.

Shoddy Sindo reporting!

I don't remember a 32 county republic guy on this site.

The whole thing is interesting though. Is intelligence really that attractive?

Dear Bear,

It was with shock and incredulity that I read this post. Do you have any idea what it has done to me this Sunday evening.

I have spent months preparing the finest Tipperary poteen...

I have spents months roving on cold dark nights, recceing local Protestant Cathedrals....

All in preparation for next St Patricks Day...

And you spurn me like this... in public ... using the tawdry pages of the Sindo to reveal you duplicity....

I shall never trust again

Heartbrokenly yours

RoC

It raises an interesting point though. Is intelligence really that attractive? How can one define it?

The article is written by Carol Hunt, but the allegations in question are made by someone called Naoise Nunn, who seems to be involved in the running of the Leviathan events.

Paul Trainer, of the Dubliner , says that he is constantly being emailed the day after an [Leviathan] event by ambitious lotharios requesting the telephone numbers of young ladies who have impressed them with their wit and charm.
I wonder if that's totally made up as well.

cheers for that mbari hogun! How does that site work?? Anyways is it just me or is that article (and many similar ones, for eg the one in the Sat Indo magazine of blogging) slightly blown out of proportion or is it just my sudden realisation of journalism?..

I'm expecting great things on the female front at the next leviathan after that article. I intend to live up to my, albeit self-attributed, title of the most verile man in the YPDs

Indeed, its time I started living a social life that "can be summed up in three words: beef or salmon!", just like Gorgeous PR guru Sinead Ryan's.
