Ramp It Up/Stamp It Down: Friday, May 10th
Ramp It Up!
The Second Captains
We’ve been missing the Off the Ball boys something fierce since they left Newstalk… but they’re back and they’re coming to an Irish Times near you. Fancy.
Stamp It Down!
Sir Alex Ferguson Retires
They think it’s all over… it is now. Worse, perhaps, than Fergie stepping down as Man United manager, was all of the bad social media jokes. Yes, LOL, Fergie has left the Black Eyed Peas. Mmmf, superLOL, Sarah Ferguson will no longer manage Man U. Give. Us. Strength. Go home Twitter, you’re boring.
ALSO. Joke stealing tweeters – what the hell is wrong with you? Poor Scouser lamp guy.
But back to the main point – we’ll miss you Sir Alex, you’re one formidable bloke when it comes to premiership football.
Free GP Card Scheme Held Up
James Reilly upsets us. He is shite. He is simply not good at what he does. Amazing how the Free GP Card scheme can get bogged down in legislation but it was no bother at all to push through property taxes and household charges and the government having their choice of a leg or an arm from your first born. Jerks.
This video makes us feel a little better.
GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS
This week, Prince Charles firmly stamped all over global warming skeptics in a pulling-no-punches speech at St James’ Palace. Fair ball, Charlo. Who are these eejits who think that global warming a) isn’t real or b) that they can avoid dealing with it? The same people who deny the holocaust but still conspiracy theorise about Roswell, probably.
We at Ramp.ie put forth that global warming is caused by the emissions of alien ships drag racing through the cosmos and coming down to do the occasional crop circle.
But seriously though. Could everyone start separating their waste and walking places? We. Are. Fucked.
