   Irish real estate developer reappears eight months after he vanished, claiming he was kidnapped, had a word carved into his forehead, and is now suffering amnesia. Sounds legit

Maybe the dingoes carved his forehead.

That's one hell of a bender.

Is this a Jameson viral ad campaign?

"Real estate developer" is usually code for a crook of some kind, so he probably tangled with the wrong revenue stream. Either that or he went on all-gay cruise around the world because if that isn't the picture of a mincing ponce, I don't know who is.

The article also mentions that, "... his name is Stephen and he's the most wanted man on 'his island', as he calls it..."

It would sound suspicious except that he is Irish.

Headline is misleading. After reading it, it sounds like he really went through some shiat. Who knows if he was in with the wrong crowd, but holy hell they messed him up.

Isn't the "word carved on face" bit a dead giveaway that your story is full of crap?

If they drop the ads with close-ups of Claire Forlani walking in high heels then they're dead to me.

Jameson won't be dropping that campaign ever.  Clare Forlani is in the ads for Dewar's.

\You had the color of the liquor right though.

Sorry....still hungover from last night where I was drinking Jameson.

Hope this makes up for it.

They went to the local garda station and they got him tea and biscuits

Why does everything over there sound so gay?

Thius is so high profile and so blatant the Garda had better solve it or they'll look pretty ineffectual. Also because I want to know what the hell happened here, even if he was dodgy he'd have to be pretty fkn evil to deserve this.

The man is near-starving and they give him curry? That's just mean.

It's Ireland. It's highly unlikely that the curry had any discernable flavour.

FTFA: "at first, they thought it was a traffic cone, but he was wearing red trousers,"

Was he lying on his back in the middle of the road, being somewhat "exited"?

If it's from a chipper, it'shiat and miss. If it's from a restaurant, it's usually good.

Also, apparently the word carved into his forehead was thief.

With how reluctant they seemed to be to mention it (the gardaí or the BBC), I just assumed it was "poof".

That was quite probably the most accurate filterpawn in the history of Fark.

Jesus. What BAC level does that particular mistake require?

Worst diet ever!

And I agree, it would be kind of awesome if "bird" was the word. Except for that carved in his head part. *Shudder*

Sigh, and I double-checked the post too.
