This is not a dig at Mr. Ahern. Just the title made me laugh like an idiot.

Ireland's former prime minister Bertie Ahern was assaulted in a Dublin pub on Friday night.

Ahern was attacked with a crutch by a man in his forties inside the Sean O'Casey bar just off O'Connell Street, the Irish capital's main thoroughfare.

His attacker, who was said to be extremely drunk, was later arrested by the Garda Síochána and detained overnight in a city centre police station.

The former taoiseach has declined to talk about the attack, which comes three years after he was verbally abused by a number of customers in another Dublin pub.

The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.

He should avoid pubs.  Too abusive.

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
