My Favorite Irish Farmer

As a singer who is never knowingly overdressed, Rihanna has no shortage of male fans. But when she chose to shoot her latest video on a farm in Northern Ireland, she found one man immune to her charms. Farmer Alan Graham, 61, was so shocked to see the singer in his barley field wearing a red bikini that he pulled up his tractor, objected to her “inappropriate state of undress” and called a swift halt to proceedings. While a meeting with Rihanna would be the stuff of dreams for most red-blooded males, Mr Graham instructed her to brush up on her Bible reading before sending her on her way. “If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say, ‘Enough is enough’,” he explained yesterday. “I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.”

Good for you Mr Graham, good for you!  The perfect sign for him to put up on his farm would be ‘Godless Skanks Keep Out!

What’s A 12 Year Old Doing With Pictures of Herself Like That? Where Are Her Parents?

Are they the disengaged sort who don’t check in on (read stalk, if necessary) their child online?

A Northern Ireland man is suing the company, claiming that Facebook is “guilty of negligence” and had created “a risk of sexual and physical harm” after his 12-year-old daughter uploaded provocative pictures to her page, according to the BBC. Perhaps more importantly, the father is also upset because of his daughter’s age.  While Facebook maintains a policy of verifying that users are over 13, there are no checks in place to make sure they’re telling the truth. At the time the lawsuit was filed, Digital Trends reported, the girl’s father claimed that Facebook had not yet removed the girl’s profile.

Honestly, instead of suing Facebook for the deceptions of his daughter, this guy needs to sue himself.  And his daughter needs to learn the consequences of uploading such smut by suffering the same fate any person who uploads child porn does.

Sectarian Violence…

Not in Iraq, in Northern Ireland

A press photographer was shot in the leg and two other people were injured when riots broke out between Protestants and Catholics in Belfast for a second successive night on Tuesday.

Police said around 700 people threw fireworks, petrol bombs and other missiles in the Newtonards area of the city, a night after two people suffered gunshot wounds in what politicians described as the worst violence of its kind in the area for a decade.

I thought that kind of nonsense ended decades ago.  People never cease to surprise me.  Oddly.
