The 'Bubble Baba Challenge': wilderness, water and 400 rubber women

Some Russian men and women apparently have more than enough imagination to spare — 400 of them recently used inflatable sex dolls as flotation devices to raft down the wildwater Vuoksa river.
The Fifth Bubble Baba Challenge (in Russian, baba stands for 'woman,' only unlike the other word for woman, zhenschina, conveys not a ounce of respect) took place outside the village of Losevo, about 110km from St Petersburg.

The unusual sporting event was dreamed up by mastermind and organiser Dmitry Bulawinov.
He said the idea of floating down the river in the embraces of a rubber woman was conceived as a joke at a party where the men got drunk and the women didn't show up.
While considering the possible uses for a rubber woman on a camping trip, someone suggested that a sex doll would make a handy flotation device. Thus the 'Bubble Baba Challenge' was born.The unusual sporting event was dreamed up by mastermind and organiser Dmitry Bulawinov.

Whos up for a" pump up penelope river lee race "?????
What a laugh ? Although the rubber woman and swimmers alike would proabely be attacked by the three eyed killer mullet that reside in the shopping trollys of out own lovely Lee :-)

Today boys and girls Id like to talk about the dangers of Acid

Lysergic acid diethylamide....


Introduced by Sandoz Laborties as a drug with various psychiatric uses, LSD quickly became a therapeutic agent that appeared to show great promise. However, the extra-medicinal use of the drug in western world during the mid-twentieth century led to a political firestorm that resulted in the banning of the substance for medicinal as well as recreational and spiritual uses. Despite this, the drug is still considered in some intellectual circles to show a great deal of promise as a medicinal substance. A number of organizations—including the Berkley foundation, MAPS & others —exist to fund, encourage and coordinate its reasearch.

Please click the video below, this is what can happen when you take it.
By the way, for some reason people from my home town of Castlebar in Mayo are know as
" fishheads ", it dates back to the famine when people would serve up pots of .... you guessed it !

It’s a funny old game this radio craic.Our job’s here and overall company success are determined by ratings. If lots of people are listening then we generate more cash from advertising revenue, the business performs better, the presenter is safe, the program controller is chuffed, the c.e.o. delighted, the board of management... minted,
it's the internal radio baton.

The way it's calculated is arguably inaccurate, but it’s the only form of measurement we have, although when your doing well, f*ck it, it’s the best system ever.

The survey is called J.N.L.R. – That stands for John, Noel, Lorna, Ronan, they are the 4 people that they ask “what radio station do you listen to " thus creating a means average for their area which is calculated into over all audience...or something like that :-)

So on the Red Rooster we were delighted when we were told yesterday “ hey langers , yer beating 2FMs breakfast by 17.000 people, and Ian Dempsey by 3000 people “ , both very good n credible shows I might add.

There is only one solid explanation for this heave in red rooster domination, Lennys mum.

Ever since Miss Lenny, in all her senior glory, started doing her own versions of "Jump around - the house of pain"," underworld - born slippy", and soon to be mastered in production “ ace of spades- motor head “ the show has gone from strength to strength.

11,000 new listeners in 12 months is unreal for us, so …. Seriously, thanks for supporting the show and the station.

It's true what you hear about Cork people , they support their own, and eat their young.

Love ye.

This is a shot of Lenny and I after yesterdays announcement.


P.S. foley congrats ya b*llixs :-)

We found him .......

After we lashed on this mornings 90’S classic ( click for cringe ) Lenny Longballs my tractor pilot comedy genius suggested that we do a “ what the f*ck happen to … “ Friday feature on the show. You text in your requests of celebrity causalities and we track em down!

Angus Mcanally from anything goes, with his two different colored socks sprung to mind !

We actually tracked down Mr Snow, he is on the show tomorrow.

His track “ INFORMER “ has a special place in my heart. When I was 19 I played weekly in Panama Jacks club in Castlebar , which was a wicked club for progressive music in its day. When the shades ( cool street slang for our local law enforcers ) arrived at the club at 2am to see if they were still serving booze, one of the bouncers would radio the dj box to play “ snow - informer “ . When that track came on it was code for the bar staff to shut the bar before the cops could raid the club. Eventually they copped it… so the muppet show theme tune replaced it !

Lap Dance Boot Camp Goes Arseways !

Wispa .... its back !

To be completely honest with you the campaign launch on the red rooster back in January to reinstate the Wispa bar was initially a bit of a piss take. But holy shit because of some Cork & international on line activity, its happening.

“Cadbury is to bow down to an internet campaign and bring back the Wispa chocolate bar.

Cadbury will make an initial run of 23million bars in October and gauge interest from there.

The company says customers often ask for old favorites to be brought back, but said the numbers joining the internet campaign to re-launch Wispa were unprecedented”. is the Cork ran bebo page, check it out.

We had Joy on the show this morning, one of the many ladies demanding the return of the bubbly one.

The people power possibilities are now endless, Wonderly Wagon, Bosco, Manimal ( that shite show with the dude who ran in behind a bush and emerged as a panther )

Lets bring it all back !

Well how ya doing ??

So, back after a two week break which for me involved sleeping, boozing, reading, clubbing, fishing, all in that order. When you’re getting up at 4.30 am everyday you have to make the most of the slumber sessions.

Getting back into a routine is a bitch, for the last 2 weeks it’s been in reverse, actually going to bed at 4.30 instead of creeping out of it. So last night I Iay in bed looking at the alarm clock thinking “ this fu*king thing is going to go off in a few hours and its all over “ .. That’s it, holidays 2007…. all over.

I'm just about to doze off when im woken to the sound of a bleeping text massage, its from Ray Foley that cheeky pup from Today FM (well technically Ballina Co Mayo – another member of the Mayo Mafia) At that time Ray was on rent boy duty in the men’s jacks of a local watering well, on the departure of an elder client he spotted this printed on the toilet bowl and felt the need to send it to me, it read ..

" I saw this on the underside of a jacks in hogans and thought of you "

Thanks Foley ya B*llox !

West Cork is the job, spent 4 days in Schull just chilling and drinking in Local super pubs like Haketts and after that it was onto the local night club “ Club Pier’o

Now we actually thought we were going to a night club, pay in, arsey bouncer, cloak room type club … not in Schull !!

Club Pier’o is an open to all out door drinking emporium ( the pier ) where hundreds of locals and tourists get hammered until 6 in the morning. The local guards don’t seem to mind, they drove by several times and just made sure no one was dead and left.. Amazing!

If this was anywhere else in the country you would be hauled off for out door gatting, respect to the local law!

We have loads happening on the show this week..

Win a VIP trip for you and your buddy to Thailand,

Frank Twomey ( yes him of Bosco fame ) and Pakie O callaghan ( bull island fame ) are on the show every morning with their hilarious sketches of their new production “ surviving Santa ponza “

And we have all the usual messing going on 6 -10 .
