Sammy Morse, sometime denizen of the Slugger comments zone clearly has a nose for a good story… Can’t believe we missed this one.

    Tsk just typical isn’t it Mad? This part of the world is late to everything

    What is the point of these kinds of studies? To confirm that people use cocaine? Who funds this kind of study, the Cocaine Board for Ireland?

    Anyone seen the bizarre Cheese Council advertisements in the south? I didn’t realise that cheese need to be promoted by tv spots.

  • The World’s Gone Mad

    Well, its not as if its only yesterday that the Irish discovered the joys of the Bolivian marching powder!

    Cocaine has a lot to answer for, not least the truly awful Brian de Palma attempt to reintrpret Scarface with Al Pacino at his hammy manic worst.

    Now spliff, there’s a different matter. Spliff gave us Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson and Easy Rider for which the world is a far better place.

  • What is the point of these kinds of studies? To confirm that people use cocaine?

    Not just that, but to confirm that people who tend to have high-denomination banknotes on their persons use more cocaine than people who have low-denomination ones. Like we didn’t know that.

    Who funds this kind of study, the Cocaine Board for Ireland?

    I thought Andre was living at Her Majesty’s Pleasure these days.

    “Cocaine Board for Ireland”

    Is that one of those North South bodies we hear so much about?

    Rory although there was Goodfellas, the first two Oasis albums, Marvin Gaye, Chic and Bowie albums from Station to Station through to Heroes. (Subsequent Bowie albums are probably the worst ad for Cocaine anonymous.) On the flip side though there is every subsequent Oasis album and the travesty that was the Stone Roses Second Coming. Coke just ain’t a creative drug in the way that say LSD is. That’s unless you count the extra work done in the wee hours when you’re up til 8am…
