US blames UK floods on Al Qaeda

Current flooding in the south-west England is an Al Qaeda attack, President Bush said today.

"They have threatened us with a rain of terror and I think this might be it," said the President. No one bothered to correct him because they're all sick of hearing him talk gibberish and are just waiting for the election so they don't have to listen to him any more.

This follows last week's hastily withdrawn announcement that the US Air Force would be bombing French vineyards as part of Bush's War on Terroire.*

President Bush gets the wind up

2000 extra guards on the streets

Some time ago we brought you news of the Garda Reserve vending machines that McDowell had planned. He got turfed out before the machines arrived in a pub near you, but has Brian Lenihan pulled a fast one and managed to find a quick way to get more GardaĆ­ on the streets?

Weekend noises

We here at Skangerland have been pleased to see Party Ben, to whose noises we have been nodding along for some months now, getting airtime, even if it is on 2fm, with his Snow Police mashup.

This week, we have mostly (in between wondering just how far a museum would go to secure funding for a refurbishment, and laughing about posh kids getting their dubes wet*) been slowly deafening ourselves with:

Party Ben - Snow Police - Every Car You Chase
Dunproofin' - Kaiser Chiefs (Ruby) vs 50 Cent (If I Can't) - FiddyFiddyFiddyFiddy
Divide & Kreate - Eurythmics v Franz Ferdinand v Faithless - Sweet Jacqueline

*We're not saying there was actually anything untoward about the collapsing staircase (apart from the fact that it collapsed, of course), we were just wondering: call it idle, feckless curiosity. We do after all live in a country where the Taoiseach will try to have a whole tribunal collapse in case it would actually start to do what it was supposed to do, i.e., show him up as the conniving, amoral, self-serving, corrupt little fucker that he is.

Damn it, we nearly made it through a whole post without mentioning that Bertie's a knob-end. While we're at it: did we mention that the Beverley Hillbilly is a rancid pus-dripping scab on the face of democracy?
