Step away from the loom bands! They will KILL you. Danger is looming! Turns out the popular little rubber bands that everyone is spending hours tying in knots could actually be highly cancerous. Well not the actual bands, NIB doesn’t want to scaremonger, but the little charms you can add to your creations. They’ve been found to have excessive levels of carcinogens causing global panic. Or a small media panic. With each great craze comes a great fall, remember when Tamogotchis got smart and started taking over the world and the Americans had to be called in?

In other news it’s been Leaving Cert results week and in true Irish fashion a pub has been blacklisted for offering shots to students at 10.30am. The Bishopstown Bar in Cork, had to apologise after tweeting; ‘Best of luck to all getting results. Remember we serve alcohol from 10.30am’ proving just how important it is to pass your exams so you don’t end up running a pub that opens after Jeremy Kyle every morning. Continue reading

News In Brief – McGuinness Gets Into Bed With The Queen

queen

There’s been one word on everybody’s lips this week: Bananas. As in; ’this budget is bananas’. Quite true.

Joan Burton’s quite right about one thing, cutting jobseekers allowance by €44 a week will force the young out of the dole queue and out of the country. As always with our politicians the long-term is ignored. Like when Brian Cowen, as Chancellor, failed to see the long-term detriment of overspending during the boom. To sidestep the usual light-hearted tone of NIB for a minute, the government can stick their ’culture of dependency’ up their arse.

The Moriarty Tribunal continues, yes, really. I thought Sherlock killed him under that Waterfall but it seems Moriarty didn’t give up and is claiming legal expenses from the Taoiseach’s department. What do you mean a different Moriarty? I’m talking about fictional events, corrupt baddies and dodgy dealings. At this point the expenses reach €600,000, that certainly sounds fictional.

Irish Wrestler Set For Charity Boxing Match

ddLeading Irish wrestler Danny “The Pain” Deans is taking to the boxing ring in an attempt to raise funds for cancer research and a cancer patient who urgently needs treatment.

The Irish News Review columnist will don a different set of gloves when he takes to the squared circle on December 21st at the Regency Hotel in Dublin.

Deans will headline the event when he battles long time friend and Hard-Pain tag team partner Harry Hardshaw in a special exhibition match. Boxing rules will apply but who knows what will happen when these two grapplers get to grips with each other.

Speaking on why he’s involved in the charity event Danny said “This event means a lot to me because over the last few years I lost two of my auntie’s to cancer. They were my father’s sisters, he is also not with us anymore so I’d say they are proud of me for taking part in this event”.

A number of boxing matches will also take place on the undercard.

Tickets for the over 18’s event cost €15 with a DJ playing live music while the action unfolds. Live music will follow the event.

If you would like to sponsor Danny you can do so by contacting him through Irish News Review.
