    Hello there. 

    I would just like to take some time out of my busy job to introduce myself.  My name is Fester and I am a Cop - in the traffic Division - mainly stopping and punishing law breaking motorists.  I have a 160mph BMW squad car and I meet a lot of people. Haha!

    I love my job! 

    I only have the one guitar - an SG Standard - which I picked up cheap in a Police Auction ;) VERY cheap, if you know what I mean!

    I've been lurking here a while and i must say that it looks a grand site that you have here.  One or two areas could do with some changes - but with a bit of imagination, this could be the place that I choose to spend my time.

    Mind how you go now!
    ;)

    Fester, have a good crack, take the hand cuffs and badge off,
    and sit a spell. Do you use the SG as a POLICE TOOL or play it?

    What's yer fav song? "I fought the LAW (and the LAW won)"?

    It would never surprise me to hear that he uses it as a Paddle for his Personalised "Garda" Coracle ! :coolsmiley:

    Hey, you won't nick many people for speeding in Dublin. It only takes one accident on the M50 and the whole bloody city's gridlocked! Not much chance to use that Beemer's power unless you want to chase some of your colleagues that I saw tailgating cars on the N7 or all those learners that go on the M7 instead of turning off at Naas!

    Anyway, tell us more about your guitar. :)

    You sound more like a reject from the Sweeney than a graduate of Templemore. Go on, give us some Irish police phrases, e.g. "Is this your veh-hickle sir?" ;D

    An Irishman who had a little too much to drink is driving home from the city one night and, of course, his car is weaving violently all over the road. A cop pulls him over. "So," says the cop to the driver, where have ya been?"

    "Why, I've been to the pub of course," slurs the drunk.

    "Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had quite a few to drink this evening."

    "I did all right," the drunk says with a smile.

    "Did you know," says the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across his chest, "that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?"

    "Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk. "For a minute there, I thought I'd gone deaf."

    One night, a policeman spotted a man driving very erratically through the streets of Dublin.

    He pulls him over and asked him if he had been drinking that evening.

    "Aye, so I have," says Pat. 'Tis Friday, you know, so me and the lads went by the pub where I had six or seven pints. And then there was something called 'Happy Hour' and they served these mar-gar-itos which are quite good. I had four or five o' those."

    Pat continued, "Then I had to drive me friend's home and O' course I had to go in for a couple of Guinness, couldn't be rude, ye know. Then I stopped on the way home to get another bottle for later."

    Pat fumbled around in his coat until he located his bottle of whiskey, which he held up for inspection.

    The officer sighed, and said, "Sir, I'm afraid I'll need you to step out of the car and take a breathalyzer test."

    Indignantly, Pat said, "Why? Don't ye believe me?!"

    How about "Move along now Mister Javamagick, or I'll be getting out the Nightstick"

    And mind what you say about Templemore  >:(
    Do you know Co Tipperary at all?

    Hi Fester!

    Yeah, that'd be American humor. Being of Irish/Scottish descent, you get a lot of that.

    Also, being the son of a police officer, I get the "bacon" jokes thrown at me too.
