*insert rapturous applause here*

I would take this opportunity to admonish the Irish team for their performance today. Not that they played poorly - quite the opposite, but I had a speech prepared, congratulating them on their cunning ruse of letting the english win, to lull them into a false sense of security. Now, I have to throw that out in favour of a more prosaic, figurative, pat on the team's collective back. 46-13 is quite something.

Now, time to pack up the tricolour and put it back in the attic until St.Paddy's day.

hmm. wikipedia tells me it comes from the final level of 'ultimate doom'; a game i have not had the pleasure of playing.
i'll expect my bonus points in unmarked bank notes, placed a sealed bin liner. details of where to leave them for collection will follow.

no wikipedia allowed, it was in the original contract

if you can produce said contract within a reasonable timeframe, i shall accept the result of the competition as void, but failing that, you are required to leave the winnings in the nearest cash-disposal receptacle (easily spotted, as they also double as public waste-disposal mediums)
