The Comedians

Vanessa and I went to see Ardal O'Hanlon (aka Father Dougal McGuire) do stand up in Leeds tonight.  And he was predictably excellent.

But he wasn't the biggest joker on show today.

No, that tag goes to Arsenal and England footballer Jack Wilshere.

Speaking earlier, the 21-year-old midfield mastermind said, and I quote: "If you live in England for five years, it doesn't make you English." 

This will come as something of a shock to Jamie White, 5, from Leeds, England who has lived here all his life.

Still, at least this stunning revelation will add weight to my theory that, should my son become really good at rugby, he should choose to play for Ireland.
