Q: How do you say “Happy Thanksgiving” in Massachuset?

A:

From our friends at The Mire comes this gem:

Gardai say gangsters less likely to be shot when using public transport.

TDIA is gutted to announce that it will not be doing its usual Beaujolais Nouveau tastings this year.  Irish people and partisans of the Aungier Street and Cuffee Street factions across the globe have been celebrating exclusively with Beaujolais nouveau since Thierry Henry won both the coveted Order of the Shiny Tracksuits Sportsman of the Year Award (Aungier Street) and the less coveted but nonetheless prestigious Order of the Shiny Tracksuits Sportsman of the Decade Award (Cuffe Street) for his exemplary showing in the France vs Ireland World Cup qualifier match.  

So we are instead we are doing what many others are and turning out eyes Hungaryward thanks to the pointers of our in-house sommelier Dr. Pol De Paor.

In a shocking new twist to the Thierry Henry handball conroversy, the Order of the Shiny Tracksuit (Cuffe  Street), the mostly Thomist rival to the Cartesian Order of the Shiny Tracksuit (Aungier Street) has awarded Thierry Henry its Sportsman of the Decade award.  Said Damien Scully, a spokesman for the Cuffe Street branch: “We think that the Aungier Street award was really a back-handed insult.  An achievement like Henry’s only comes along maybe once in a lifetime andshould be honoured lke that.  There is no sign of the FAI honouring him any time soon,” he added in reference to the Football Association of Ireland’s puzzling stance on the controversy.

TDIA: In honour of this fantastic double-handball we are posting this twice.

AN EXCLUSIVE REPORT FROM OUR ROVING REPORTER THE SPORTING READER

For this fantastic display of sportsmanship, integrity, honesty and sheer Tai Chi-like fluidity of hand movement, the Order of the Shiny Tracksuit (Aungier Street) awarded its Sportsman of the Year award to Thierry Henry.  The award comes with a full year’s subscription to Cheating Bollocks magazine and a large bronze plaque that says “Ta mere!”

At least by this “leger de main” if you will, the world was spared the embarrassing spectacle of FIFI President Sepp Blatter walking onto the field to hand the referee an envelope stuffed with Euros to make sure that France qualified at all costs as many feared would happen when the game went into extra time.  Why FIFA (Federation for the Insertion of France into Africa) would be prepared to go to such extremes to get this mediocre team to South Africa is anyone’s guess.  Cynics might say it is all about TV rights but we all know it is all for the sport, right?

Shock!  Horror!  Disbelief!  Oh my God! How could this be? A “dietary supplement” called RockHard Weekend is found to contain undeclared erectile dysfuntion drugs?   I suppose Dr. Boner O’Hardon’s Tumescent Hair Oil or will be next.  Can we trust nobody?
