Bad dream

I dreamt last night that the Irish Cabinet was ensconced in a unisex ward in St Vincent's Hospital, each awaiting haemorrhoidectomy.

Ms Merkozy arrived to visit, bearing grapes and flowers, to be met by the patients collectively scratching their elbows as they proclaimed "these piles itch something terrible".

Nicolas looked to Angela with raised eyebrows, who replied with a grin: "Surely even you realise, none of them know their arse from their elbow."
