Effin dangerous

This is the story of a some innocent denizens of a village in County Limerick who wanted to be part of the great phenomenon called Facebook which only a few, like Backside and me, avoid like the famine (allegedly).

But as fate would have it their village is called Effin (in English, not in their native tongue). So as seems to occur with all such electronic media, it could not speak its name.

I presume (for I dare not put it to the test) that one should not refer to a festive furkin either?

(Please note this post is split into short, easy-to-read paragraphs and avoids any link to a media report or a relevant stock photo selected for the amusement of cherished members.) 🙂

    No one has a problem with a link to where you got the story from – entice us to read more!

    Nor does anyone have a problem with pictures that don’t have copyright written right across them – where do you suppose the rest of get our piccies from?

    To misquote: “The Internet is an ass at times” 🙂

    By the way what are “easy-to-red paragraphs” 🙂

  2. facebook is not all bad BTW

    ‘Scuse Mr Mr Janus, but I’d like another caption competition, please, if you’d be so kind sir. I was just getting into my stride again – but when I came back it had all gone. Or were my captions the reason the post was deleted 🙂 ?

    I agree and no. I deleted it because I was reprimanded! 😦

    I deleted it because I was reprimanded!

    You have had more leeway than anyone else on this site – and I’m getting pretty fed up with your carping comments and childish sulks when people say that they don’t understand what your posts are about or that you, like everyone else, should stick by the rules of this site and by the rules of our host, WordPress. I can’t think of one good reason why you should be a special case.

    I have no doubt that you’ll take your bat and ball and go home – again – after this comment.

    Stick by the bloody rules and you won’t get reprimanded.

  5. And as a further thought, I’d like to point out that you had a whole host of extremely witty and funny comments on that post which far outnumbered the three negative ones.

    When you take your bat and ball away by deleting a post you take away the contributions of others.

    If I sound pretty annoyed – you’d better believe that I am.
