Slackjaw joins the fray..!

SLUGGER contributor slackjaw has caught the blogging bug and started his own website. It’s not everyone that can fit the Pope, porn, the Sunday Times and S&M into the same post, but Hugh Green means it… most sincerely, folks. Some nice anedotes too, so click on

This entry also made me laugh:


I was 3 in 1979. My only memory of PJP2 coming to Ireland was of me falling down the stairs. I have no idea what proportion of Ireland’s working population is younger than me, or how many people here were growing up in other countries around the world at that time. Most people I spoke to last week expressed no interest in a national day of mourning whatsoever. But we all cop the admonishment equally. It reminds me of the priest in a neighbouring parish to my own, who a few years ago found a used condom in the grounds of his church. He was so enraged that the following morning, a Monday, he declared to the 10 or so elderly women in attendance at morning mass that all the women in the parish were little more than sinful hoors.

Hat tip to ATW.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.

    If they ever make a movie about the Pope, it will be probably be called ‘PJP2’.

    …and everyone will be wondering what happened to the prequel.

  6. Many thanks for the link and the kind words, Mr Gonzo. If it hadn’t been for Slugger I never woulda started so I wouldn’ta.

    Apparently they pulled the prequel under murky circumstances after a month’s shooting cos they got the casting all wrong.
