What is this gibberish? Complete and utter gobblydegook. How much does he get paid to produce this drivel?

Friday September 10 2010

ONE look at Wayne Rooney tells you that he's a product of the Irish-vegetable gene pool, with a potato for a face, a turnip in his skull and a vermilion carrot in his trousers.

Agree - it's demented. Amazing that even the Indo published this stuff.

I thought the piece was quite funny

Maternally manoeuvred vehicles are the quintessence of a scalar force, which is energy without direction.

Great line!

On the other hand the head of the individual he describes is not exactly the acme of artistic classical perfection ,now is it?

Our Kevin is interested in race, and with his background, can spot the Gael and the Saxon in a crowd.

This article is his way of saying that you would not catch someone with Rooney's face playing cricket for Lincolnshire, and you wouldn't find someone with Crouch's face rowing in a Valentia currach regatta.

Is Bertie's latest money spinning scam ghost-writing for Myers? It reads like it. Suppose it beats winning bucketfuls of shekels on ghost horse racing events.

And yet here you are talking about it!

You make it sound like this is Myers first intentionally provocative article.

He's an evil bigot, obviously.
But has a great imagination and an amusing turn of phrase.
Really really evil though.

His own head closely resembles an Irish arse which is appropriate given the amount of sh*t that comes out of it.

There is no Irish gene pool but if there were Myers would be part of it.

But its not provocotive at all. When Myers is on form he can be wittty, cutting, controversial and on occasions insightful.

This is rambling, unstructured garbage that makes no sense and is impossible to read.

Correct. But he has so many words to write, and there's only so many times you can say English honourable good, Irish devious bad.

I think Myers has been pulling a trick on the Irish public over his years as a 'serious' journalist, he's actually a writer in the greatest tradition of the absurd.

Absurdism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To be fair, he is in the right country when it comes to his ammunition.....

Actually, his surname is Norwegian and translates as "bogman".petuniapetuniapetunia
