Dog sex man charged with buggery

A Limerick man has  appeared before Limerick District Court charged with ordering his Alsatian dog to have sex with a 43-year-old mother of four, who died from an adverse allergic reaction to dog semen.

The Irish Sun reports that Sean McDonnell, 57, is charged with buggery contrary to Section 61 of the Offences against the Person Act of 1861 – and is believed to be the first person in Ireland to be charged under the legislation.

Should Mr. McDonnell be found guilty he could well face the maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

The Irish Daily Star adds that McDonnell and the deceased woman had discussed the arrangement at some length on a bestiality chat room, and that Gardaí are satisfied that the intercourse was consensual.

Well that is a relief what would the World be coming to if dogs ran around raping people willy nilly?





Stuffed Jalapenos

29 07 2011


Stuffed japaleños are great for parties and picnics. I like these stuffed jalapeños instead of cheese and crackers they are just a much more manly hors d’oeuvres.

Ingredients

  • 12 large jalapenos /poblanos halved and deseeded
  • 8 oz. soft cream cheese
  • 8 oz. grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 rashers of  smoked back bacon

Directions

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Halve and deseed the  jalapeños.

In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese and Cheddar cheese.

Chop the bacon in to small pieces (bacon lardons work perfectly for this) and mix in with the cheese.

Stuff the bacon and cheese mix into the peppers and dust with a little chilli powder

Arrange jalapeños in a single layer on a lightly greased medium-sized baking sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes, but cooking time can vary, so keep an eye on it. When the cheese is brown and bubbling the jalapeños are done.





Wilshere and Rooney on FIFA 12 cover

29 07 2011

Please don't steal my hair Wayne

A rather worried looking Jakc Wilshere will share the cover of this year’s FIFA offering with Shrek Wayne Rooney, no doubt that is the source of his slight look of fear.

For those  of you who might not be aware  when Rooney isn’t having hair sewn into his scalp or sleeping with geriatric prozzies he can occasionally be seen scoring goals for Manchester Utd.  

FIFA 12 is out in September and fans of the game can look  forward to the collision engine and  improved online gaming. The new features which will allow online players to choose between Chelsea, Barca, Man City and Real Madrid and will now make it easier to fake losing your internet connection 1 minute before you would otherwise have lost.





Bendtner to Sporting Lisbon

28 07 2011

 Portuguese publication Correio da Manhã have come out today and stated that Sporting Lisbon will unveil want-away Arsenal striker Niklas Bendtner as their newest Summer signing.

According to the newspaper B52 will touch down in Lisbon in order to be unveiled to his new club before their home friendly against Valencia on Saturday.

There has been much transfer rumbling involving the big Dane during this close season, most of it coming from his father/agent, Thomas Bendtner, who has stressed all along that there was plenty of interest in Bendtner Jnr and that they had the “luxury” of having many offers to choose from.

Despite being with the Gunners for the past 6 seasons B52 has struggled to ever really enjoy a clear run of goal scoring form and will be remembered as much for his mistakes and missed chances, Barcelona anyone, as much as for his goals.

As is always the way with Arsenal the exact nature of the deal will remain cloaked in secrecy but there are suggestions that a fee of £8 million has been stumped up,  not quite the £12/13 mil being bandied around by some as a valuation but still not bad for an inconsistent striker who has often proven to be more mouth than trousers.

On the other side of the transfer coin the suggestion that Juan Mata of Valencia is on his way to the red and white side of London refuses to die. Supposedly the Spaniards family and representatives are meeting with the club at the moment in order to agree personal terms after Arsenal matched Valencia’s £17.5 million valuation of their prized asset.

Apparently the offer was enough to trigger a release clause in Mata’s contract and will pave the way for a certain Cesc Fabregas to make his return to boyhood club FC  Barcelona for a reported £40 million… Watch this space





Emirates Cup 2011 Preview

27 07 2011

Well another year has rolled around and once again the only piece of silverware in the Arsenal trophy cabinet is the Emirates Cup, to say last season was a little bit of a let down is putting it mildy.

However that doesn’t mean that my enthusiasm for this years competition is in anyway diminished, the line up this year is really quite impressive and with the inclusion of two teams from outside of Europe it looks like it is starting to live up to it’s billing as a world class pre-season tournament.

So who are the teams taking part in this years two day festival of football? Well we will start wth the hosts themselves. my much beloved Arsenal, they are joined by newly rich French heavyweights PSG, Argentine giants, Boca Juniors and the quartet is rounded off by another team from the Americas; New York Red Bulls who of course will be bringing with them someone the gunners faithful know and love the one, the only, Thierry Henry.

For those of us not lucky / rich enough to hold season tickets the Emirates Cup can be a great way of getting to see Arsenal at home. Tickets are reasonably priced at only £25 for adults and £15 for concessions for each day. There is also normally pretty good availability and I know more than a few people who have purchased theirs on the day(s) without issue.

Emirates Cup 2011 kicks-off at 2pm on Saturday 30th July with Thierry Henry’s New York Red Bulls taking on Paris Saint-Germain, followed at 4.20pm with the hosts Arsenal playing Boca Juniors.

Sunday’s fixtures also start at 2pm, when Paris Saint-Germain take on Boca Juniors. Arsenal and New York Red Bulls will bring the competition to an exciting climax, kicking off the final match at 4.20pm on Sunday afternoon.

Teams will be awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw. The competition also rewards attacking play, with teams being awarded one point for each goal they score. In addition, shots on target will be counted and will be used to decide the tournament winners if teams are level on points and goal difference.

Arsenal The winning team will be presented with the Emirates Cup trophy after the second match on Sunday 31st July.

I am really looking forward to seeing Gervinho in action again after his brace against FC Koln last Saturday and like many, many others I am really looking forward to seeing TH14 take to the field again, just a shame he wont be in the red and white 🙂





Chilli Rellenos

27 07 2011

 To make  really great chile rellenos you need to balance three ingredients just right

The first and most important is the chile. The pod has to be of the right size, thick fleshed, and with the right heat level. You want something along the lines of a large Jalapeno or Poblano because it has these characteristics. Here in Ireland I often find it difficult to get large chillies so often use those long Romesco peppers that you can get in some supermarkets, because the heat in these isn’t much more than a bell pepper I often chop up a jalapeno or two and mix them in with my stuffing.

Next the stuffing, you want to use a cheese that will melt well and has just the right strength of flavour, I personally like to use asadero  as it is a traditional Mexican cheese and goes well with the chillies. The basic recipe calls for just cheese but I often like to mix things up a bit and throw in some shrimp some lightly fried lardons… delicious!

Finally, the batter must be light and with just  the right amount of salt and black pepper to enhance the combination, but not detract from the flavors of the chile and stuffing. A great chile relleno captures the unique TexMex flavours of the USA

Ingredients

  • 8 Jalapeno or Poblano chillies, roasted, peeled, and de-seeded.
  • 8 sticks of asadero or mozzarella about the size of a finger.
  • 4 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup flour, plus more for the chiles
  • Oil, enough to cover 1½-inches deep in a skillet

Method:

Prepare chile pods. Peel and deseed the chiles. Remove the seeds by cutting a slit in the pod from just below the stem and slice about half way down the chile. Stuff the pods with the cheese, but don’t force things. The open edges of the chile must still come together. Hold the edges together with toothpicks.

Next, prepare the batter. Beat the egg whites with salt and pepper until stiff. In a separate bowl beat egg yolks, add salt and flour and mix well.

Fold the yolk mixture into egg whites just enough to mix. (Use quickly, as this batter will separate.) Roll chiles in flour to coat. Dip chiles into batter. Fry in hot oil until golden brown. If oil is hot enough, this will only take a few minutes. Turns chile once, then drain on several layer of paper towels.






Jay Emmanuel-Thomas joins Tractor Boys

26 07 2011

 

 

  It’s not often I get to see transfers involving my two favourite teams =  Arsenal and of course the “Pride of East Anglia”, Ipswich Town… well today is one of those rare days.

The transfer in question is of course Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’ permanent move to the tractor boys for a figure somewhere in the region of £1.1 million.

JET came to prominence when he captained the Arsenal side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2009 but has subsequently struggled to find a place in Arsene Wenger’s plans and has had successive loan spells at Blackpool, Cardiff and Doncaster.

JET can play anywhere up top and has even deputised at left back before but seems to be at his best when employed in an attacking midfield role. There is no doubt in my mind that he is a very talented youngster and flashes of his brilliance have crept through on occasion however on seeing some of his appearances for Cardiff on loan he is also a player who can frustrate fans and doesn’t always look as if his heart is in it…perhaps that is why Wenger hasn’t given him the same chances shown to Jack Wilshere or Aaron Ramsey in recent seasons.

Whether Paul Jewell can get the best out of him remains to be seen but I think it is a decent bit of business for everyone involved, especially as it would seem that Arsenal have had a hefty sell on clause written into the deal…
