My own Tribute to Silliness by Willy O Dea


Willy ODea managed to get the whole country up in arms, uh puntastic, without ever having to actually accomplish his minsterial job (e.g. monitoring the activity of a foreign agency using our airspace for suspected terror flights). '

Gavin has been keeping an eye on the fallout, with easily the best response coming from Deaglan over at Res Publica. "Dirty Willy"....wonderful. Id would love to be original enough to craft my own homage to stupidity, all i can come up with is that piece in the top-right.

Dont worry Groucho is only a temporary. Unless he has some more dodgy photos in his closet.

    Poor Willie -- when you seem more insane than the National Rifle Association, there's a problem:

    The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:

    1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
    This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

    2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
    When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

    I guess the NRA arent really that strong around west limerick otherwise their sensible gun policy (not) would have left the Defence minister far more capable
