Excccellent: You may see Mr Burns and Ned Flanders walking around around West Cork very soon

"What was I laughing at again? Oh yes, that crippled Irishman!"

Paul Moore

“What was I laughing at again? Oh yes, that crippled Irishman!”

Exccccccellent and Okely-Dokely. Good news for the people of Cork with the news that one of the main stars of The Simpsons, Harry Shearer, has bought a holiday home in Ahakista, West Cork.

JOE is very tempted to go and stalk the 70 year old actor just so we can hear him recite some of our favourite lines from the likes of Principal Skinner, Smithers and our all time favourite character Mr Burns.

If that wasn’t enough to convince you of his hero status, Shearer is also the bassist Derek Smalls from the legendary This is Spinal Tap.

JOE has taken a lot of inspiration from Mr Burns over the years. To paraphrase the great man, our website is operated by “a thousand monkeys working at a thousand laptops. Soon, we’ll have the greatest website known to man.”
