Usual crap, but it looks like Tubs may have been sampling the White stuff before the show.

He is uber hyper-active. Definitely looks like a "sugar rush"

yeah, but I think he's settling down now. I thought those kids doing the set dancing were great.

The "toys" though are the usual pure eye candy - nothing interesting whatsoever.

Isn't the Late late toy show where he made his debut back in the early eighties. You know: as one of the little privileged snotty nose type children who get to go on it?

He's not THAT bad, but he's kinda being too sarcastic given that he's dealing with kids who don't really 'get' sarcasm!

It's the first time that I've ever actually seen him looking in his 30s!

He normally looks like a kinda 1950s guy mysteriously transported to 2009.

Oh look. Westlife are on now. Good Fianna Failers who do what they're told.

Yes, I thought the set-dancing little kids were pure dotes. Gorgeous little people clip-clopping neatly around to Irish music. Smiling like their lives depended on it. You could see one little girl had been told by her Mammy "Now make sure to keep smiling whatever happens" Made me wish my little people were not all so grown up.....sniff....

Whatever happened to my shiny-eyed little innocents who used to leave cake and mulled wine out for Santa, all serious and grave, such an important ritual every year? Surely they can't be those 6ft tall guys sprawled on the sofa making the odd cynical monosyllabic comment?

I think Tubs is good at this, but yes, it is hard to get into the toys----it used to be easier. Guess you need your own kids to explain...

The thing is: In thirty years time, your children will be holding down good jobs and doing their best to be decent citizens.
The kids you saw tonight will be in the Dail, in charge, and continuing to wreck the country (and laughing at your kids)!
I don't care how cute they are. They are FFers.

Know how you feel. My youngest is 12 and he just went off to bed in boredom. I don't think it's really about the toys any more. It's more a show case and talent show for kids. Not that it isn't interesting, but it's different from 10 - 15 years ago.
