My whole family watched this, Fionnuala and we all thought it was BRILLIANT!!!

Was it easy to do?? We'd like to do our own:)

The judge pointing like Sir Alan at the end was fab:)

Bit worried about who - or what? (cue Jaws music) the fisherman was having sex with in chapter 3, though:):)

Well done!!!

Susie Nott-Bower said...

WOW! I loved it, Fionnuala! The 'dead-pan' delivery is what makes it. We must flag this up elsewhere - it's brilliant!

Roderic Vincent said...

Fionnula, that's hilarious. The judge sounds like my inner critic.

Susannah Rickards said...

I'm howling with laughter. I LOVED the fisherman's hook and Luxembourg. And all of the bits before and between and after.

Bliss.

Fionnuala - you are a star! I loved it when he looked at us and said 'shark' and the way 'you' put your hands on your hips in defiance. Just brilliant! Very funny.

Pure genius, Fionnuala!!
I'm in awe of your technical prowess and general all-round comic geniousness. Um, geniosity. Um, whatever.

Gillian McDade said...

Fionnuala Kearney said...

Brilliant!

Rebecca Connell said...

Brilliant! (Just to sound like a stuck record.) I have no idea how you did it, but I may investigate the website!

Olivia Ryan said...

Sorry to echo everyone else but - brilliant! You're SO clever! Did it take you hours and hours to do it? (Never mind working out how to do it!). - sighs - I will live for ever in admiration of people who 'do' technology!

Brilliant (and let's hear it for the grid!.)

Wow - thanks everyone! It's really simple to do, though I warn you - very addictive. The website is
http://www.xtranormal.com/
just sign up for a free account and off you go. I convince myself when I'm doodling on it that its still writing - it's 'script writing' innit??

Loved this, Fionnuala and agree - now I can pronounce your name at last. (Still have yo check my spelling against the person before me though!)

Clodagh said...

LOL!! Totally brilliant, Fionnuala!

Karen said...

Fantastic! I want to read that novel :o))

Anne Brooke said...

Wild!!! I found the sound of my name being uttered by that hunky judge a really rather sexy moment, I must say ... Do you think I might need help?!?

:))

And I'd definitely read that novel too.
