Tana - 'real sorry'

From today's Times, by Stephen Jones

All Black Captain Tana Umaga has redeemed himself from a week of controversy by phoning crocked Lions rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll to apologise for the 'spear tackle' that ended his tour, and revealed to O'Driscoll he would have called sooner but his mobile was 'out of credit'.

Umaga said he was 'real sorry' about O'Driscoll's injury, but reminded his opposite that rugby was a contact sport and that accidents happen, and if he didn't like it he shouldn't go trying to get the ball when the All Blacks want it.

O'Driscoll expressed his forgiveness to Umaga, explaining he thought the game was supposed to be played under touch rugby rules. He said it was 'swell' of Umaga to call.

The apology has started a flood of similar calls between former rugby foes. Rua Tipoki of NZ Maori has revealed his relief at receiving a call from Lion Gordon D'Arcy to apologise for the late spear tackle he executed on the centre during the Lions match against NZ Maori earlier in the month.

A tearful Tipoki said "Bro, it's about bl00dy time, eh. I've been sat by the phone for weeks waiting for that neho to call. He could have bl00dy killed me, the barstard!"

Maori coach Matt Te Pou said he had intended to take a tape of the D'Arcy incident to the press after the Lions v Maori match to protest at the incident, but chose not to "cos only a real f*ckin whinging loser would do that sort of sh1t eh".

Wayne Shelford has confirmed a call from French Rugby Federation officials, apologising for the impromptu removal of his left testicle by the French
forward pack in 1989. Johan Le Roux and Sean Fitzpatrick were seen today holding hands in an Auckland park, the pair apparently having made up for their differences from 1994 when Le Roux bit Fitzpatrick's left ear.

Le Roux endorsed the new trend of apologising for every single physical act in a game of rugby. The former Springbok prop said that bottling up all
that guilt over the years had made him feel all bad inside and it was good to get it out and reveal his true feelings for Fitzpatrick, who he described as his hero.

Danny Grewcock admitted he "had a bit of ringing round to do".

Richard Loe's phone has been engaged all day.


Brilliant! My Hat off to who ever wrote it.....

Where the Wild things Are (nt)

So like I was watching Lost last night - second to last episode of the first season -and I'm thinking to my self, "this is good and all but when is the fat guy gonna lose some weight?". He's like on an enforced atkins diet of bannanas and boar but getting no where....

Bring Back Party of Five I say. You know why.

An oldie but a goodie from Uncle Tim:

Beer as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers.

One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff explained the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm.

Here's how it went:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones
at the back that are killed first This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Be a dear and please pass the sunblock?

So as my personal friend Sheryl Crow sings "A change will do you good" so here it is - jimmy jangles now comes in any colour you like as long as its black. Like the Bat mobile. Its new. Its the new black. A new look for the dirty chook. Not that I'm a chicken you understand, it just ryhmes. Like Buster.

Moving on.

Question why is the bat mobile still called the bat mobile? Surely it should be called the Bat tank? I'd post a picture but I'm too lazy and Warners may sue me for copy right breach. Again.

Wellington - its sunny after the shite weather last night. I think I froze my right royal rastafarian neigh neighs off in the walk between JJ Murhpy's and Charlie Chicken's last night. So now I'll go thaw them in the sun.

Be a dear and please pass the sunblock?

I'm Your Dog

I'm Your Dog 

You're the rule, I'm the exception
I'm the fool for your deception
I'm your slave. Let me misbehave

I'm your little dog.
So walk me

I'm your pawn. Lets watch some
I make you come, you make me dumb
I got high and left you to cry
You ask why, I just deny deny

I'm the infection, you're a misconception
You're the poison, I have no remedy
I'm the bass and backbeat
Starving for you, I gotta eat

You're monday, tues day and all the week
I'm a day off, just an IT geek


Something random for yas all, I have no idea what it means. As usual.


I got nothing.

Here's some pictures of our hike in Tongariro National Park New Zealandmount ngarahoe tongariro national park new zealand jimmy jangles

Urs truly, with Mt Ngarahoe in the back ground. You wouldn't believe it looking at the picture but it was really freaking cold then, a cold wind snap was just about to hit. To my right (kinda) is Red Crater, which is below.
