I find this online thing intriguing. We converse daily with people that we do not know, apart from their online personae. I love the site and while I know a few posters in the real world, most are just online characters, whom I do not know. This thread is meant to be totally complimentary in nature and is concerned with what the amazing Ressers could have done/been, in another life, as you see it!
@Tayto, if you think it is a bad idea, shut it by all means… but only meant to be a bit of fun! So here goes:
Guy Incognito: Jon Snow (brilliant reporter)
Dub 09: Heaney (wordsmith)
Stato: Jimmy Magee!
JJF: Power City (IT expert!)… I’ll come back to this
Tayto: Dr. Brian Cox (follee the science!)
Roman: Ernest Hemingway (travels, burdz etc!)
Dry January is over anyway …
@Iomaint - Henry Kissinger
The German lad that negotiated a ceasefire in Vietnam? I’ll take that Dub, and thank you sir!
I’d venture that Roman is about as far from Hemingway as possible to be. Other than good with words & burds!
Tayto… Mr Potato Head. (soz, @Tayto!!)
Wow. See you in a month @beeko
More Walter Mitty😉
I distinctly remember a poster done up of ressers by a fellow good looking poster a number of years ago.
Now that was a classic!!
Absolutely correct @5AliveOh . As you all but said, I am incomparable.
To even get close to the essence what I am, would involve a preternatural combination of a Holy Trinty involving the acidic intellectual dexterity of Truman Capote with the mores, customs and premium luxuries of Jay McInerney with a sprinkling of Bret Easton Ellis added just for a bite of chi-chi spice.
In other words, only Roman is Roman - past, present and future; in this life and any other.
Ok. If I’ve to hazard a wild guess…
Iomaint: local Dublin councillor. Wrath of FG bigwigs.
Rufus: diplomat with his measured posts (or else an orchard owner)
LondonJack: cantankerous civil servant
Tayto: must be a skilled negotiator with his patience. Or just a vending machine salesman.
Dub09: wealthy golf club owner.
Stato: computer programmer / lover of spreadsheets.
JJF: skilled photoshopper who hasn’t twigged on to how to use his skills for counterfeiting.
ProudDub: closet Meath supporter. Or more probably a nurse you don’t look sympathy from. Or a softy.
Can’t think of anymore.
Correct! I’m hoping to get the Ryder Cup here in 2031.
When you head for Omagh after the Ballygawley roundabout there’s a bit of a yard a good bit on (near the pizza place I think) that looks like it could be a hotspot for activity. I always wonder if Daller owns it when I pass.
That’s the A5 Diner / filling station ! Has a yard behind it too.
Right across from McCanns pizza.
You always see a few dubs there on their way home.
Ps we used to live nearby. My plans for a toll bridge never made it past the application stage.
Tell them I said to change their name to McCannelloni Pizza. Business will treble.
McCannizza Pizza wouldn’t be able to meet demand
That sounds far too cosmopolitan for b’gawley.
Besides….fancy Italian words don’t sound the same with a Tyrone twang.
