dildo on beachdildoes are cropping up on the beaches of Co Clare in Ireland – http://tinyurl.com/j2wde76

many folk are wondering how they got there

[I’m wondering what this find says about the men of Co Clare?]

p.s. how many madhatter readers checked a map to see where Co Cork is in relation to Co Clare ? 😆

p.p.s. and how many suspicious buggers – given today’s date – are wondering whether this is a true story at all and not just a leg-pull?

it was a riotous affair (police were called to stop the women fighting) 😆 – the idea that the drinking and partying would go on for 2-3 days was a novel concept to someone who had only ever attended more sombre funerals in England and she thoroughly enjoyed it

Symphysiotomy : Fucken Religion

by duncanr

I’ve been two days trying to write this post but have been too upset/angry to marshall my thoughts into a coherent pattern

that doctors, in this day and age, are sawing women in two rather than perform a Caesarian because the former will potentially allow them to have more children in future (in line with the Catholic church goals for families) than will the latter – though tell that to ‘Lily’, who has been unable to have sex with her husband since her pelvis was sawn in two – leaves me speechless with rage
