Ian O'Doherty: The best job in the world?

An Irish travel agency has come up with an interesting marketing tool -- they want to find a couple who will spend six months travelling around the world checking out the best honeymoon destinations and writing about them.

Sadly for the couple, they will also have to write about it for the Irish Times, so it means that hardly anyone will get to read about their experiences.

It brought a nostalgic lump to ISpy's throat as we remembered our own honeymoon -- two weeks in a caravan park in Wexford, to the accompanying sounds of weeping from Mrs ISpy and the constant refrain of "what the f**k was I thinking? Jesus, I've ruined my life. I hate you! I hate you! Mother was right. Be careful you prick, because the next time you're asleep I'm going to stab you in the face. You knew I was drunk when I agreed to marry you and you tricked me. I'm going to kill you one of these days, do you hear me? I swear I will."
