Dueling Irishmen



Take that, you Liam lovers!

What, you may ask, does Pierce Brosnan have to do with knitting and writing? Exactly what Liam Neeson does, only better!

I'm very sorr, but ol' Pierce doesn't do it for me. My heart belongs to Liam.

Now . . . where is that dvd of "Rob Roy?"

Ah, those eyes...

C'est la guerre!

Mr. Brosnan is a pretty young lad but I prefer the more earthy charms of the formidable Mr. Neeson.

Nancy, I guess this means you and I can go to the prom with Liam and Pierce.

Wendy, I'm afraid it's bamboos at dawn.

Laura, I can't argue. Those are definitely beautiful eyes. (Probably air-brushed but still . . . )

I like your idea for a prom double date, Barbara. I am so there!

Wendy--sorry, THE Wendy--how could you prefer a smelly guy in a kilt to the suave charms of Bond, James Bond?

Laura knows her guys' eyes.

And here I thought I knew ye, Herkness.

A smelly guy in a kilt!? How dare you! Better than some fou-fou tux-wearing, cocktail-sipping blow-dried dandy.

And I say that as probably the only person on the planet who has never sat through an entire James Bond movie and intends to go to her reward saying the same.

"Fou-fou"! "FOU-FOU"!!! This is 007 we're talking about. The man with a license to kill. And he definitely slays me.

I agree with Barbara, Pierce Brosnan is a pretty boy. But Liam...Liam is soooooooo manly. My first Broadway experience was going to see Mr. Neeson and I have not been the same since.

Uh oh. I see a great cultural divide forming here. It's like the acrylics v. the 100% wools or the throwers v. the pickers or Magic Loop v. dpns . . . somebody stop me.

Or, we could just appreciate the diversity.

Nancy, in my not-so-humble opinion, Pierce Brosnan is a scrawny pretty-boy. Liam is a HUNK. Just sayin'.

Barbara, I'll meet you at dwan with my bamboo dpns. Would it be cheating to bring my size 17s?

Hee hee hee!

I'm doing a survey on the Pierce vs. Liam issue. So far the score (not counting me or you poor deluded people) is Pierce 1, Liam 0.

So THE Wendy plays dirty, huh? Size 17s indeed . . .

Hey, Herkness, you sure didn't major in math! A friend of mine was on line at Price Club (pre-Cost Co) days behind Pierce Brosnan about twenty years ago in L.A. She said he was very tall, very thin, very freckled, very pleasant. ==yawn==

Barbara, I'm ignoring your biased description of the gorgeous Pierce because so far my survey is unamimous: Pierce 8, Liam zip. This from females ranging in age from significantly older than I am to a 13-year-old. Most are utterly puzzled that I would even mention Liam in the same breath as Pierce.

Ha!

Anonymous sources? Please. It is to laugh. Who funded the survey? Who made the phonecalls? What photos of said Irishmen were used? What were the demographics of the respondents? Who validated the responses? Who tallied the results? Who analyzed the tallied results?

Bet the last name of all above was HERKNESS.

Barbara, I resent your pathetic attempts to impugn the scientific nature of my survey. I had to go to the hairdresser today (so I could remain a member of the Royal Society of Redheads) and I asked everyone there for their vote. No photos, no bribery, no incentive to vote for either party; I even listed their names in alphabetical order (by surname, of course).
