The Irish Citizenship Test

I saw this on reddit a few days ago but this morning Rick O’Shea retweeted this 2fm tweet announcing the sale of a poster with the image above:

The Citizenship Test Poster! On sale now & with all profits going to Médecins sans Frontières, the world’s… http://fb.me/1ySOHnDU5

You can buy the poster here where “€4.50 from the sale of every poster will be donated to Rick and RTÉ 2fm’s nominated charity, Médecins sans Frontières, the world’s leading medical humanitarian organisation.”

Click on the image above to get a slightly bigger and more readable version. You’ll still have to squint a bit but it’s worth it. Well done to everyone who contributed a tweet!

Now, where’s the Cork Citizenship Test? (You knew I had to bring this up didn’t you?)

Nob Nation Adverts

Nob Nation or Gift Grub? Which is better? I prefer Gift Grub but I haven’t heard it in ages because of a change in our radio listening habits in the morning due to an early rising baby and slightly frazzled parents..

Anyway, Nob Nation is available as a podcast you can subscribe to, which is just as well. No need to listen to Gerry Ryan prattle on! 🙂
Here’s a recent episode, and one of their better ones. “The Nobs try their hands at making some well-known ads as well as some made-up ones”. Love that Penneys one!
Download the mp3 and enjoy!

Haunted Houses, Ghosts and Poltergeists

I need a spooky category.. Gerry Ryan has had a few calls from women saying their houses are haunted. I’ve an open mind about this and wouldn’t dismiss it out of hand at all.
The first caller said that she saw a silver haired woman lying on the bed next to her one morning, she turned away and back again and the woman was gone. She heard her child mumbling one night and went into her room later and the child said that she had been trying to call out and she was held down by something. Last Monday she took 3 photos of her children and apprently there’s an hump-backed old woman with a cane in the picture. A psychic told her that the woman in the house doesn’t want them living there! *gulp*
There’s more, and it’ll probably be repeated on Saturday morning so have a listen then!
