  • What future event did Irish Psychics Live fail to predict?
  • Who said in Dublin that gay culture threatened the survival of the human race?
  • How did a spoof dictionary of Waterford slang cause the owner of a hotel to win €50,000 in a libel case against the Sunday World?
  • What happened when the North Dakota Congress debated a motion paying tribute to U2’s Bono?

  • Ireland was playing England in rugby, and the British National Anthem was being played for the first time at Croke Park.
  • A customer used a loophole in their phoneline service to claim €15,000 in phone credit funds.
  • The Polish President, Lech Kaczynski, during a debate at the Forum on Europe.
  • He owned a hotel called Maryland, and the Sunday World’s dictionary of Waterford slang defined Maryland as a small hotel in the red light district of Waterford, and a colloquial term for a brothel.
  • One member thought the motion was about Sonny Bono, husband of Cher. The motion was defeated on the grounds that Bono had no connection to North Dakota.
