    “Hamas gunmen seized control of the Gaza Strip’s border crossing with Egypt on Thursday in a ferocious gunbattle with Fatah-allied border guards after Israel blocked the Hamas prime minister from crossing with tens of millions of dollars in aid.

    Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh was eventually allowed to cross without the estimated $35 million cash but on the Gaza side of the border, his convoy came under intense fire from Fatah gunmen and one of his bodyguards was killed. Hamas said the gunmen had been aiming to kill the prime minister.”

    “Fatah gunmen”…id est, those who refuse to respect the mandate of the Prime Minister of Palestine. Now, who does that remind me of??? Hint – those who espouse the beauty of democracy, UNTIL their enemies are elected.

    See! It’s not just in Ireland where orangies pretend to favour democracy…until it works agin ’em.

  • Rory

    Well thank you for that, Ciaran. I do admire how you managed to use the clip’s underlying prop of a Holy Land backdrop to introduce it. They should make room for you on I’m Sorry, I Haven’t a Clue.

  • ciaran damery

    Does that mean you turn a blind eye (or support) Zionist fascism, rory? That you deem my post worthy of a sneer because I refer to the current US, Israeli etc’s refusal to accept the mandate of the PM in what you term ‘the holy land’? BTW? Holy land you say? Gimme a break. Spout yer creationist superstitions ’til the cows come home. But try to deal with reality as well. Or is that to much to ask???

  • Mick Fealty

    Ciaran, please hit the ‘humour’ category on the right. And get a grip…

  • ciaran damery

    What’s wrong with pointing out the farcical situation in Palestine? Do you find it funny, Mick? Is it not kosher to address the disenfranchisement of those who reside in what most creationists refer to as ‘the holy land’? Should I turn a blind eye or are others likely to be hurt by the truth?

    Can you imagine how much uproar there would be if any religion other than Christianity was the subject of such blasphemy. I watched it on TV only for a short time and was sickened by the fact that such insensitive trash could be foisted on Christian people.Every body is so sensitive about respecting diversity until it comes to Christianity.People who contribute to this kind of trashing of Christianity should remember that there is a day of reckoning.

  • “People who contribute to this kind of trashing of Christianity should remember that there is a day of reckoning.”

    Err… no there isn’t. There is no God, there is no heaven/hell. There is no flying Spaghetti Monster. There’s only nutcases who believe in fairy tales and are willing to kill for them. May I be stricken down by lightning before I manage to post this otherwise. So I guess you can assume if you’re reading this Santa/God/Sauron/Barry Scott ain’t up/down/over there.

  • Tochais Síoraí

    T Ruth. I respect your right to believe in whatever you want but those of us who think Christainity is a glorified fairy tale have an equal right to laugh at something that pokes fun at it in a very funny way.

    And if there is a God, I’m sure she had a good laugh at it.

  • The Devil

    Do you want a bet!!!!!!!

    “What’s wrong with pointing out the farcical situation in Palestine?” – Nothing – but do it on the right thread. There are loads, and even whole blogs dedicated to it. This thread is dedicated to the langerland cartoon – see it even says it in the title of the thread. It is very selfish to hijack every thread with your pet causes (and makes you look stupid too).

  • Rory

    Oh God! It’s my fault. I started him off. I should have left him alone. I am sorry .

  • DK

    Rory – I don’t think that it would have made any difference who replied to the ginger nut. He would have gone off in any direction.

    Still, I thought Langerland was mildly amusing, that’s all – not as good as their 1916 rising one.

  • “Oh God! It’s my fault. I started him off.”

    You’re getting old.

    Where is our strappin’ lad who could have played off both nutters with a riff that combined yer man Darby, the destruction of Israel by Gog, a “loaf of bread & jug of wine” come-on to Ruth and a picnic on Megiddo Hill to view the Reckoning at Armageddon.

    Sic transit gloria.

    The Langerland cartoon shows a lack of originality on many fronts. Their humour is so boringly predictable. At least we have no tubby Mary Harney in this (so unfunny lauighing at fat people). Their granny rule football one was funny but if you compare this skit scat to The Life of Brian, it just shows waht a load of dickheads Irish comedians are. I cheked out a DVD of a Tommy Tiernan show recently; it was odd watching the Irish laugh at their own emptiness.

    As regards making “fun” of Christianity, two points:
    1. one needs a sense of humour to do that.
    2. one shows a lack of imagination and therefore humour by zeroing in on the Nativity stuff.
    If you think this is funny, try to get out more.

    Brilliant

    Secur O’Crat,

    As Irishman GB Shaw once said: if you want to tell people the truth, you better make them laugh or they will kill you.

  • Rory

    To be on topic (for a change), I was mildly amused and think he can probably do better. Especially with such easy targets perhaps a wee bit more subtlety might work better. It ts what we have become conditioned to in the post-The Simpsons world.

    Still it was useful in bringing up one’s own prejudices. My first reaction to the Paisley character was a low-life “haw haw” but then I found my initial reaction to Gerry as his braying donkey not so favourable and I expect others might have had a mirror reaction to mine.

    So in that sense it worked by offending all equally but not much influence of Swift apparent or Homer (the Springfield philosopher) either.

    Smiling’ Jim.

    You’re right. I have slipped. Me sins are manifest. I’ll just nip out to the shed and have a quick wash in the Blood of the Lamb

  • “You’re right. I have slipped. Me sins are manifest. I’ll just nip out to the shed and have a quick wash in the Blood of the Lamb”

    Hallelujah brother Rory, your are indeed saved, I’ll remember you tonight as I’m rattlin’ the tambourine under the streetlamps. We’ll thump the drum and toot tuba for the lost in this poor shower whose only craic is in its arse.

  • Greenflag

    Hilarious -:) But who was the other Magi ? Gordon Brown & Bert Ahern I recognised but not the other one ?

  • Greenflag

    I think it’s John Prescott,

    Shame on your knowledge of pre-re-partition politics……twas John Prescott (from 2 jags to 3 mag(i)s)

  • fer fecks sake

    Sorry lads, that was a load of crud! Almost like watching the folks on the hill. Yup, that bad.

    Capable of much better as proven in the British/Irish Lyons football team.
