    note the short trousers, tie, and chants of `"Down with America " all things we associate with the Pope.

    A humour forum? Is this some sort of joke?

    Somewhere, there was a post on Brendan Bracken - or even a thread. I can't put my hand on it.

    There is a new exhibition on in the Little Museum of Dublin on this enigma wrapped up in a mystery.

    Bracken was an interesting guy certainly.

    I have sometimes thought that Patrick Cosgrave might have been his spiritual successor, in an odd sort of way, but that is probably unfair to Bracken, who seems to have been a much cleverer man.

    IIRC, Bracken was related to our own KevBar.

    That was the decent side of his family, the other half was full of gunmen.

    EDIT: I see he had already fessed up to this.

    thinking about it another second ..

    if he was Churchill press man (1941-1945) he knew EXACTLY what was going on in Germany's concentration camps way before anyone else did .. .. ..

    :/

    the British had indisputable video evidence in 1943/44

    Feck's sake - this thread isn't humorous at all.

    Princess Diana and the Queen are driving down the lane when their car is forced off the road by masked thieves. "Out of the car and hand over your jewels." After the thieves rob them and steal their car, Diana begins to put her earrings, necklace, and rings back on. "Wherever did you hide those," demanded the Queen. "Where do you think?" asked Diana. "Pity Margaret wasn't here," said the Queen. "We could have saved the Bentley."
