“We had no idea how poorly he would play,” continued the Samsung spokesperson. “Not just Ronan, but the whole team. In hindsight the ‘I’m converted’ caption is quite embarrassing because his conversion record in the World Cup was shite. We’re quite disappointed with Ronan, not only did he let himself and the country down, but he let us, a multi-billion dollar company, down as well.”
A huge advertisement for Stolichnaya Russian Vodka on the side of a building near Union Square in San Francisco. It proudly stats, “Choose Authenticity”.
This is the sight that greeted me on my first night in the city!
When shopping for jewellery gifts it’s important to note the following steps to make your life easier.
- Make sure you start early. It’s already too late. Better luck next year. This lady started her shopping on November 10th!
- Examine the shop window in meticulous detail. Bring a magnifying glass.
- Drag an unfortunate shop assistant out into the cold, wind and wet to show him which item you want to buy, before changing your mind and looking at something else.
Don’t worry about price. The piece you like will always be the most expensive.

“Shape up your day” with the Special K diet according to Kelloggs.
Your shape. Your way. With Kelloggs Special K of course. That stuff is full of salt isn’t it? Having said that, I do love a bowl of Frosties. Never lasts long in the house. Good thing I haven’t bought a packet in years!
‘Course, I could just be talking about Ketamine too.
The Chemtrail conspiracy theory claims that some trails left behind jet aircraft are different in appearance and quality from those of normal contrails, may be composed of harmful chemicals, and are being deliberately produced, and covered up by the government. These unusual trails are referred to as “chemtrails” (a portmanteau of “chemical trails”).

Debenhams bought Irish department store chain, "Roches Stores", back in 2006, and rebranded their Cork store on Patrick Street shortly afterwards.
Unfortunately nobody has yet replaced the big "Roches Stores" logo at the top of the building. It’s still there, more than a year later!
The post box outside a post office in Fermoy, Co. Cork.
These are the swanky new offices of estate agent Sherry FitzGerald in Cork. I find it intriguing that the owners decided to bring in other agents to sell the other floor space in the building.
There are signs for Savills/Hamilton Osborn King and Lisney on the top floor directly above the "Sherry FitzGerald" logo. I’d be really unhappy about that if I was them and had spent so much money on new offices.
Clothes pegs in a textured cloth bag, Marlboro branded plastic bag, 1993 calendar. Shot at my parents-in-law house.
I love the texture of the clothes bag, but that wasn’t what attracted my attention at first. It was the calendar and the Marlboro bag. Since cigarette advertising is now banned it’s unusual to see any sign outside of shops.
