In November of last year, it was disclosed that more than 1,000 Illuminati computers and laptops had been lost or stolen in recent years. The Ministry of Insidious Mind-Control was the worst offender, with 503 laptops or PCs missing in the past decade, with the Ministry of Staring Into the Great Inky Abyss Whilst We Await The Arrival...

In what's being seen as something of a coup for the climate-change sceptics movement, organisers of this first international conference in the discipline have confirmed the appearance of the Easter Bunny. This announcement comes hot on the heels of last week's much-hyped confirmations that Santa Claus, several tooth-fairies and representatives of the Leprechaun community would also be attending the high-profile event. The climate-change...

George Lee T.D., pictured during his resignation rant in the Dail Eireann canteen at 11am yesterday Scandal and screaming in Dail Eireann as TD George Lee peppers the chamber door with assorted toys fired from an armoured pram. Fine Gael TD George Lee resigned from the Dail in spectacular fashion yesterday morning, when upon finding himself sitting alone in the Dail canteen for the ninth working day in a row (as fellow FGers sat together at the 'cool kids' table), Lee is reported to have flung his food tray at the wall, stamped his feet and launched into a volley...

In May of 2010, Blather.net will be thirteen years old. That's thirteen. Puberty, ladies and spambots, is imminent and the wearing of short trousers will no longer be tolerated. In light of this disturbing turn of events (and the increasingly litigious, cut-throat monitoring of general web-activities by THEM), we have felt it necessary to update our Terms and Conditions to reflect this momentous period of change. Putting the shit back in the cow 1. Blogs: Blather.net is not 'a blog'. Anyone referring to us as a 'a blog' will find themselves on the business end of a law-suit that will...

'Fuck you Mick. Fuck you.' In honour of Deputy Paul Gogarty's recent fit in Dail Eireann, and the newly announced efforts of The House to clarify what is and isn't 'parliamentary', we humbly present the The Big Blather Christmas Guide to Parliamentary Language and Behaviour. 1. As and of January 6th 2010, all TDs will hereby be addressed as 'my nigga'. In the interest of fostering diversity and tolerance, 'my wigga' is also acceptable. 'Homes' is not. 2. Disputes (within the same gender) arising from any chamber debates will be resolved in the Dail carpark with a set of 18th...

Horror and outrage at Blather HQ, as list of 'revealed' Mi5 spooks fails to include a single member of the Blather High Command. Scum Second last to get picked for football. That's what we were as young childer. Second last to get picked. Not last to get picked you understand, oh no, but second last. I can't remember what happened to the guy who was always picked last (I think he may be a hedge fund manager now) but I do recall the lasting psychological damage that it inflicted on the poor lad. Bed-wetting. Tantrum-throwing. Public masturbation. An audition on...

Yes, you read that right. Determined to get to the bottom of this latest linguistic...
