I got an e-mail in work this morning about: Christmas parties!smileys/shock.gifsmileys/shock.gif

I only thought of this a few nights ago and I was trying to remember when it started last year. It was even before the halloween stuff came out last year. Oh it's going to be a long road. I think I'll tell himself I'm putting the tree up on Saturday!smileys/biggrin.gif

It's quite a depressing thing to have to do in August.

BTW anyone notice you can still get Creme eggs ??? Did they just not sell out this year or have cadbury's decided to keep them available ? You could always get them year-round in the UK, but usually they're gone less than a month after easter over here.

I wish to object, in the strongest possible terms to a Site Moderator using his/her powers to change a thread title in order to cause great upset and offence to a long standing and wellrespected site member.The site member in question has strong views on the matter of the early celebration of Christmas - with which I agree- and it is not acceptable that he should be victimised in this way.


Indeed itcould be argued that, since Christmas is a religious festival and the victim is a strong believer in how (and when) it should be celebrated, he is in fact being persecuted because of his religious beliefs.


It is possible, therefore, that the site could be leaving itself open to a charge of discrimination on religious grounds which is, of course illegal.


I expect, therefore, that the offensive thread name will be changed and the moderator who changed it will bedisciplined or at least warned as to his/her future conduct.

Reminds me of times long gone when a friend of mine queried old Santa's logic.



Why was it, he wondered, that he got the holster and his brother got the gun?


Didn't seem right somehow.


Ruck, take no notice of them, Santa got laid off last week or was it laid? Anyway, one way or the other, he got the hump.


I'll keep you posted,

Detectives are investigating a sinister 'terror' campaign by a
vigilante group threatening attacks on shops for selling Christmas
cards too early.

Four businesses have received letters warning
them not to sell festive cards before November and one charity shop had
its locks glued.

The real-life Grinch - the fictional Dr Seuss
character who hated Christmas - phoned the Mind shop in Headingley,
Leeds, claiming to represent the 'Movement for the Containment of
Christmas' and a hooded figure was caught on CCTV posting one of the
letters to a nearby Oxfam store.<div ="clear"> </div><div ="thinCenter">

had a letter sent to the shop in Headingley threatening against selling
Christmas cards early</div>


West Yorkshire Police have been called in and Mind has stopped
selling the cards for the time being for fear of further expensive acts
of criminal damage.

The shop manageress, who does not want to be
named, said: 'A man phoned and said our lock had been glued because we
were selling Christmas cards far too early.


'He said if we
pass the shop and we see you are still selling Christmas cards we will
glue the lock up until the cards are removed.

what the problem was with us selling cards, he said that he was from a

Ruck looked at his naked image in the mirror. I can see why Cloudie fancies me, he thought as he pranced in front of the mirror. "Go get them b***h," as he imagined how all the females (and one male) would be vying for his attention upstairs in Dolans after the match. "Jesus, I'm a bear of a man."


He slipped on his black leathers, his cowboy boots, his wrap around sunglasses and finally his Munster cap tilted at a coy angle. His Munchins underpants peeked through his open fly - ever ready was Rucks motto- like the batteries he carried in his pocket(for emergencies).


With a swagger of his hips he bade his loving mother a fond goodbye. She had given him his usual pre-match fare of steak and chips and slipped a fifty into his pocket out of her old age pension. God help us, she thought as she imagined how her poor darling son was able to survive on 700 Euro a week even though he lived at home. She refused to take a penny off him for his keep,even though he kept mentioning that he must throw her a few bob sometime. He had a heart of gold and how handsome he looked tonight.


On the way to Dolans for a pre-match scoop he glanced in the shop windows to admire himself. He could see all the girls looking at him, wondering who this God of men was. He acknowldged their glances with a smile, his gold tooth glinting in the bright Christmas lights of O'Connell Street.


As he arrived at Dolans he saw his Boss rushing in to tell the lads that Ruck was arriving. He knew he wouldn't have to put his hand in his pocket tonight, not that he ever did anyway. His new boss had told him to take the day off if he wanted and to take any day off at any time. This was after Ruck showed him how to solve Fermat's last theorem in the middle of playing Final Fantasy on his Xbox during an important conference at work.


He could only have a few pints as McGahan wanted to meet him before the match to iron out a few tactics. Everbody wants a bit of me, he mused despondently...

Ruck was wrecked after the Christmas party and swore he's never let a drop past his lips again. As he knelt forlornly over the toilet bowl another gut wreching heave overtook him and he vomited up the rest of the night before.


He struggled to his feet and examined his once handsome face that was now decidedly swollen after an encounter with Lagoon Lash. He had kindly offered her a free service late in the night but the six foot, 16 stone captain of Shannon's senior ladies took grievious offense and dealt him one mighty blow of her ham sized fist. He was out for the count and for quite a while afterwards as well.


His friend Mad Max, a renowned expert in French rugby and a regular contributor to L'Equipe, managed to save him from a real hiding by pushing a pint under her nose. She was so overcome with emotion that she gave Max a mighty hug which cause him to emit a thunderous fart. A sudden hush descended on the bar as GD, another stalwarth of Dolans, rushed back and forth to see who had been shot-it was Limerick after all.


"I might have known it was Ruck's fault", muttered GD annoyed at having being distubed from his pint. A few of the lads lifted Ruck onto a stool in the corner of the bar. Lagoon Lash kindly lent GD her bra. He put one of the mighty cups on top of Ruck's head and tethered him to one of the taps behind the bar with the straps. He left him go a few times to see if he was balanced and when satisfied went back to the party.


Ruck woke up with a mighty headache in Dolans the following morning. He was on his own. He released his head from the bra and considered having a cure from the bar but decided against it as his stomach was dodgy. He couldn't really remember what had happened last night but knew he had to avoid Lagoon Lash at all costs.


He struggled onto the Dock Road and into the blinding winter sunlight. It must have been a good party, he reasoned as he couldn't recall any of the events of the night before. Women and children scattered before him as he tried to find his bearings. Was there a match on or something yesterday?


He couldn't remember- the last time had felt like this was the night he propositioned Munster Moll at the Christmas party last year....

If you see a fat man


Who's jolly and cute


Wearing a beard and a red flannel suit


And if he's chuckling and laughing away


While flying around in a minture sleigh


With eight tiny reindeer to pull him along


Then lets face it...........


You're pissed


Merry Christmas &amp; a Happy New Year

A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:


When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones,and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.


Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered. Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.
In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.


Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
