Roma’s club badge has gone viral after Iranian TV censored part of it during Champions League coverage against Barcelona.

The crest includes the image of Romulus and Remus suckling on the Capitoline Wolf, as legend has it these abandoned brothers founded the city of Rome.

However, Iranian television station Voice and Vision seemingly found the image of two cartoon infants suckling on lupine teats to be too much for their sensitive viewers and blurred that part of the logo.

The image of the blurred badge went viral.
Like I always say, only in Iran.

There's a news story about a stabbing on the Dart on the breaking news website today.
On it they have what they call a "file photo" of a Dart train in an underground station. The train is bound for Inchicore apparently.

You jest but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a hundred years since it was first proposed

The Oireachtas Golf Society sits 81 people down to Dinner (albeit in two rooms) in a hotel in Cliften and thinks this is OK.

This is precisely the behaviour that Haughey indulged in 30 years ago which lost him the backing of 'the plain people of Ireland' and ultimately the only role he ever wanted.

Appalled and pissed off, everybody associated with organising and attending that function should be named and shamed.

Every Sports Club of every code would love to hold a golf fundraiser and for some it might be purely for their survival. That the clowns who actually dare to do it are a Society made up of our legislators and their friends and associates beggars belief.

Name each one with accompanying photographs and let them each suffer the ridicule they deserve.

THIS IS REAL WEIRD NEWS
