Who the Fu*k is Reggie?

Leinster 6 - 30 Munster
Originally uploaded by eoinABhab.
Federico Pucciariello, replacement prop for the injured Marcus Horan in Saturday’s trouncing of Leinster, when interview the week before the game was asked how he thought he would fair in his personal battle with Reggie Corrigan. His response was “who the fu@k is Reggie?”

Born in Rosario, Argentina, Federico played for Jockey Club Rosario before taking off for Europe where he played for Parma.
He moved on to Narbonne and in May 2001 played for them in the Challenge Cup final, a game the French lost to NEC Harlequins 42-33, after extra time, Federico's current clubmate Paul Burke deciding the outcome, kicking six penalties, three conversions and a drop-goal.
There followed a season in England's West Country with Gloucester before the Italian international moved back to France and three seasons with Bourgoin.
He joins Munster at the start of the 2005/2006 season, was named as a replacement for their trip to Welford Road for the pre-season warm-up match but ended up making his debut from the off when Tony Buckley was forced to withdraw on the morning of the game.

Italy 90 Ball

This one I came up with when looking at old footage of the 1990 World Cup which was held in Italy.
If anyone remembers Roma Foods ran a promotional giveaway where by if you collected enough tokens from Roma spaghetti wrappers etc you could send away for a free Roma Italy 90 Soccer Ball.

Underpants Continued

Below is my reply to our friend in Daewoo who suggested i use a Giga-counter to check if my balls were effected by the Microwave Underpants.

I also got a reply for the original email from SANYO Ireland Ltd. He was a bit more professional.....at first!

Came up with the underpants series after one of my flat mates actually used the Microwave to dry his underpants one evening when he was in a hurry to head out. I emailed a number of large Microwave manufactures as I thought it might be interesting to see what the official line in regards to drying underpants in the micro was. I of course put a bit of a twist on the story……anyway…you’ll see what I mean below……enjoy.

There are more Replies and follows to this one which I will post later in the week…..

…oh and…..ok I admit it…it was me who dried his undies in the micro!!! I was in a Hurry ok!!!

Cheese II

Another addition to the Cheese series.

(From:Liam Hassett, Irish Dairy Board)

One of my favourite series of emails was the ‘Cheese’ related emails. Simply because even though they were blatantly outrageous I still managed to garner replies off people. Targets included The Irish Health Board, The Irish Cheese Board and Cheese companies such as Galtee & Calvita.

The Thong Thing!!

The Thong Thing email was another of our earliest emails. IT was sent to various sporting organisations throughout Ireland.

We also got a Reply from Tennis Ireland. Obviously substitute the GAA club for a Tennis club for the sent email. But I somehow get the feeling that Tennis Irelands chief executive is on to us !!!!

rot: The Zetor Tractor

Sent this one out a good while ago to the Tipp IFA but got no response. So i decided to cut out the middle man and go direct to Zetor Tractors. I emailed several different offices worldwide and the results can be seen below.

Not one of my best or one im overly proud of, as the hints are not really obvious enough that it’s only a hoax.

Reign of Terror

What is the 'Reign of Terror' ?

Well the 'Reign of Terror' is the product of fierce bordom, an over active imagination and too much and spare time.

The reign of terror is basically a campaign of mostly bogus emails sent to various targets in the hope they either

A. take the bait and reply
B. pick up on the prank and send an equally ridiculous reply
C. who knows

One of the first ‘targets’ was RTE and the RTE complaints department. I have to say that the correspondence got of them initially was ‘gold’ but tapered off eventually as they copped on to the hoax.
Other targets range from the GAA to the IFA to Dairygold to Health Board, to name but a few.

So keep an eye out i will be posting the emails/letters over time and watch out ...you could be next!!

This site will be updated at the very least, every Sunday Night/Monday morning….so check in regularly to keep up to date with The Reign Of Terror!
