Kells man makes joke on facebook – story goes viral!

Standard

Well, we had an interesting day in the north of Meath today! My facebook was rife with a story of a lion escaping from Duffy’s circus and roaming the back fields of Kells, Co. Meath behind two of the town’s Secondary Schools. 

I was in Blanchardstown at the time, and posted on the facebook page the story that I had gathered from people’s statuses which was basically that the lion had escaped from the circus and that the Irish Army were out with their guns at the ready to shoot the Lion. Some people were disgusted at the inhumane way to solve the problem, others pointed out that tranquilizer guns were only accurate at a very short range, while others insisted that the welfare of the town’s people was the most important thing. One man even light-heartedly pointed out that “The lion will get sick of Kells fairly quickly and leave”.

One of the funniest facebook posts I saw was a sneaky screenshot one of my pals took from a snapchat that her friend sent her, complete with Lion’s mane coloured in around her face! While another, who loves cats wished the Lion would wander her way so she could “give it a good home”! I love my friends and their sense of humour!

Well, the story even managed to make LMFM news, but Tara Clarke quickly quashed the rumours on my facebook page by outing a Mr. Adrian Brady as the culprit of the viral Lion story!

Adrian defended the claim that it was a lie by saying “it was a conversation that got blown out into something massive” and when I suggested that he should have kept the lie on fire he claimed that he “tried but some people came up to the estate to see the tiger\lion and I couldn’t stop laughing”…
The fact that people went on a hunt for the lion, instead of hiding in their houses boggles the mind! 

So, here’s what actually happened:

Adrian’s friend Timmy posted this status on facebook and Adrian replied accordingly:

And the story appears to have taken off from there! The chinese whispers then began, that it was in fact a tiger and not a lion, when Adrian posted this photo:

And this is the tiger that everyone came to Adrian’s estate to see! 

And that is how this story got out of hand and went viral! When I asked Adrian if he had anything to add to the story, he simply replied “Ah, nothing more I can really say about it, apart from how quick something can spread around this town”!

So there ya have it, there’s no lions, or tigers in Kells, and the circus is still up and running! So you can now to go bed safe, and stop hunting for the lion/tiger!

As Carlos Ruiz Zafon once said: “In small towns, news travels at the speed of boredom”, in this case there was never a truer word said!

Good man Adrian!

One Direction – Is this the Best Video Ever??

One Direction – Is this the Best Video Ever??

Ok, so the One Directioners have FINALLY released the first video from the third album after LOADS of cheeky snippets to tease us! And it does not fail to disappoint.

The video sees a big film exec talking himself up with references to Angelina and Brad, when a sexy secretary announces “One Direction are here”, the producer shouts “I LOVE The Direction” and here enters the boys to talk about their up and coming “film”. He introduces himself to the boys (and calls Zayn “Zack”, when Zayn corrects him he roars “Whatever”) And in walks the sexy secretary, who Louis and Liam don’t hesitate to eye up… And it is none other than Zayn dressed as a woman, and a fine woman he makes! Marcel the marketing guy is introduced and it is a very geeky Harry, who is very excited about the dance aspect to the film and then introduces Leeroy (Liam) the choreographer, who does a lovely little shimmy routine for all the boys! (So far, so good, I say!)

Marcel then HILARIOUSLY moves on to styling for the boys and shows them an iconic Backstreet Boys image in all-white matching attire with the 1D boys faces super imposed, they are all openly disgusted. They are then shown an iconic Take That image, all in leather with the boys faces super-imposed, to which the recoil in horror, each suggestion thereafter is worse and worse (except the YMCA one, which I think is GENIUS) and finally, 2 minutes and 40 seconds in, Harry starts singing, in a dulcet, but slightly aggressive tone! Mmm, Harry!

As usual, for the rest of the video, madness ensues, from Harry coming on to Zayn (dressed as a sexy secretary), the boys wrecking an office and clips of mayhem from their tour and a funky little piss-take dance routine, before the poignant moment at the end, where there is a massive poster of the boys on a wall and Zayn spray paints “THIS IS US” on it… Ahh, bless.

And the video ends and I am so impressed with the three boys cameos that I am slightly disappointed that Louis and Niall (My two favourites) didn’t take the piss out of themselves with a cameo…

AND THEN the end credits reveal that the two boys were in fact the two hairy, fat, old studio execs and I am SHOCKED and delighted, there are a few cute little outtakes in the end credits too.

Is this the best song ever?

Probably not, but it’s a bloody good song and a really good video! My love for One Direction has gone up, yet again! Fair play to the boys, and to James Corden who wrote the script for the video, alongside Ben Winston, who also directed the video.

BRAVO, 1D!

What do you guys thing? Especially non 1D fans? Should they get a pat on the back for good acting?

Eva and Ryan sitting in a tree… Ryan goes and gets on one knee!

Standard

So… The world’s most beautiful woman and the world’s most over-rated man (it’s just my opinion, none of you have to agree) are to get engaged!

the couple at Land of the Pines Premier

According to Star magazine, Eva hinted at Ryan that she wanted to be married before she’s 40 but GET THIS… Eva Mendes doesn’t need to drop hints, she’s a RIDE and Ryan was planning on asking for her hand in marriage anyways! Yayyyyyy!

According to Star mag, Gosling has even been helping ring designer Neil Lane design a Lil sumthin’, sumthin’ for the lady herself!

Gosling is filming his directorial debut, which Eva is also starring in at the moment, but he reportedly has something special planned for Eva soon!

The alleged insider told Star mag: “He’s planning a romantic getaway once their movie How To Catch A Monster wraps.

“He tricked her into believing the trip is to celebrate the movie. Eva is completely clueless.”

Well she’s not now! Sorry Eva!

There are also reports that as professional as Gosling is at his job, all Eva has to do is throw a lil sneaky dirty look his way and they’re all over each other! Good woman Eva!

Ah they look well together in fairness

I may disagree with the female population of the world on how attractive the bold Gosling is, but all the same I just LOVE a good celeb couple and would I love to see them last! AND obviously I can’t WAIT to see Eva’s dress! What do you guys think!? Heartbroken or anyone agree with me that he’s over rated in the looks department!? Look at the face ladies, not the body!!!
