Slugger and the political debate

The Pastor of Muppets re-visits Marc Kerr’s critique of low political debate that too often characterises debate on Slugger. Definately another one for the blogroll!

  • “at least weve decided that miss M doesn’t qualify”

    Awwwh martin I kinda liked her. She had spirit 😉

  • martin

    Why werent we invited onto the parades commission

  • martin

    Bertie,
    yeah I know everyone deserves a second chance–lets leave it to FYU[once again]him being the injured party–if he chooses to forgive-I will accept his wishes–Id need to know that she doesnt hold a grudge against me for opening fire on her with the extinguisher though.

  • “Why werent we invited onto the parades commission ”

    It’s certainly a mistery!!!

    LOL This made me laugh so much I nearly did myself a serious injury!

    Is there anywhere we can raise a compaint about being passed over and do you think we could get a reference as to our characters and suitability from other Slugger posters (positive ones I mean)

  • martin

    bertie,
    shes still in there with a chance along with the other applicants-FYU and myself agree that the matter be forgotten .

    whats your take on the Cu Cullainn eating spice burger home page ?

  • That’s a winner as far as I’m concerned but I’m not very concerned about the failure to harness our unique potential contribution to the Parades Commission. Seek not to ask what your country and all that. I see it as our duty and destiny to play our part in facilitate Pugsley’s free passage through the highways and byways!

    That reminds me of another money making idea that will gain us funding on this cross community project lark—If we set up orange order branches and Ulster scots language courses all over the south–they will have to give us grants.

    I would have no problem with us renting halls and the 3 of us walking down the centers of Dublin,Cork,Limerick and galway among numerous other places once a year wearing an orange ribbon and going to the pub afterwards–youll have to teach me how to sing the Sash though mind you Im not bad at playing the tin whistel-and I can just about speak Ulster Scots as it is–youve seen what a bad speller I am.

    um, guys, its me again, i might have a wee bit of pull with the commission, now thats not a promise or anything, but winks, nods and blind horses,
    would that help my application, without my seeming desperate?

  • martin

    Missfitz,
    our file on you has been updated and this information has just been entered-all qualifications that a prospective employee could bring to our Blog are taken into account in any decision.

  • martin

    Well folks,
    Im off to bed–think Ill leave an Im off work sick message on the bosses answering machine for tomorrow just like I did today-

    and its good night from me and its good night from them–possibly c u all tomorrow if I can get out of bed before 10pm.

  • “at least weve decided that miss M doesn’t qualify”

    MS M, I repeat MS M is the correct designation. My marital status should be of no concern to my future employers.

    Correct at once, or face the same consequences as YFU….

  • missfitz

    Martin, that will earn you an extra nice cup of coffee, and an larger cream bun.
    Thank you

  • Ms M

    It was martin. I wouldn’t dare be so crass.

    missfitz what do I need to do to get a battered sausange supper?

    martin

    having hijacked the thread should we be trting to fly to somewhere and should we take hostages?

  • missfitz

    i guess the fun is over, but bertie…. pleased to batter your sausage anytime

  • martin

    Bertie,
    It seems that I slept a bit longer than intended—What year is it–and what has been happening out there in the real world–did I miss much.

  • martin

    Bertie,
    how long was I asleep Im beginning to worry if something like happened to Oisin on his return from Tir Na Og and his subsequent fall from the horse has happened to me I just passed FYU and he’s almost totally bald with two sparce grey patches at the sides–then I stopped to talk to him and he said he was the great grandson of the original FYU–apparently there was a United Ireland in 2030 –we[the nationalists were the majority by 2011–but your lot kept demanding recounts on the border poll and would only be satisfied when it was a clear 55% swing in favour—of United Ireland——we kept the assembly it now caters for all 9 counties of Ulster along with the counties of Leitrim,louth,Waterford and wexford apparently they were proven to have all most 98 percent the same genetic and linguistic patterns as us—Ian Paisley Jnr became a Roman catholic in 2020 his father is still speaker of the assembly although he has really softened up a bit–Jerry A became a priest after the hiarchy allowed marriage of priests in 2015 and he retired from politics,He is about to become Bishop of Rafoe,. UK became a republic in 2027 AND broke up into mini republics—Cornwall is independent now???

    Anyway we all lived happily ever after—how do I get back to 2005 are there time travel busses ????

  • martin

    Bertie,
    But more importantly whats happening now on Eastenders.

  • martin

    Not had the chance to reply to this before as I’ve been trying to research your strange delusions. It would appear that you have been transported to a fantacy parallel future universe, borne out of a desire for an unattainable goal (come on now you don’t seriously expect me to let you away with the notion that there was a nationalist majority in 2011 or anytime!) 😉

    Apparantly this has been brough on by eating dodgy burgers and the only hope for you is proper nurishment (cue battered sausage suppers)

    Have you decided which of the women you wanted or should we take them all on!

    Are you sure that ATW and United Irelander arn’t about to merge?
