Fathers of Bastards

For those who'd like to get in on today's joke, the full text of Mr. Myers' (phoned-in) column is available here, at the ever delightful Clare Hurlers forum, where the crack goes on, on anfearrua.com. I haven't had a chance to revert to my posting of the real version all day as an t-Idirlinn was on the blink at work.

However, my purchase of the Bindo! yielded the following great story. It seems a disgruntled German ex-politician is doing the satanic work of hundreds of MoBs by adopting up to 1,000 fatherless urchins by year's end, presumably in Paraguay in which country he now resides, as a form of revenge on the German State. According to himself, Mr. Jurgen Hass (56) was wrongly convicted of fraud and "treated like a dog" and is now exploiting a 1998 children's rights law whereby he can adopt fatherless boys with the consent of their mothers thereby entitling them to passports and a lifetime of social welfare freeloading at the expense of his former countrymen.

I mean, it's one thing when a 15 year old slattern from a tenement does it, but a man! Whatever would the Colonel say?

Speaking about Fathers of Bastards, have you thought of introducing a section / blog to sing the praises of John Waters. He is equally mad, bad and hilarious as the Col.

badman,

Do you want to drive us to distraction altogether? Regularly reading (and dissecting) one nutty polemicist is plenty for mere mortals such as ourselves.

We don't have the mental steel required to take on two without being wheeled off to Bedlam...

I half expect to see a chanting impi of Zulu warriors come trotting over O'Connell Bridge . . .

I'm not surprised to find that the Colonel dreams of the glory days when the Maxim Gun was enough to show the natives who's boss.

Shame on you, C. It took the raving loonies over at ATW to mark today's emission from the Colonel:

I couldn't face it. I'm doing my first night's study after long weeks of procrastination. I think I'll be shutting down for two weeks.

One look at the headline was enough for me. I was going to use the line "business as usual" to parody his "now where was I" remark yesterday. Today's headline was hardly a surprise.

Talking about Myers stuff on An Fear Rua ... check out the truly excellent piece called "Miss Gee Gee and Mr My-Erse: A Tale of our Times"

This has to be one of the best ever pieces written anywhere about the Colonel.
