Garda Communication

So what happens if you have two mobile phones, and you use the first phone to ring one garda station and the second phone to ring another garda station and you hold the two phones together to “talk” to each other?

(NOTE: Garda = the Irish Police force just in case you were wondering.)

Disclaimer: Blogorrah posted that I had been the one to actually perform the calls. Just to clarify…I wasn’t in on the original prank, I just heard it and thought it was too good not to share.

Del I think the Gardai in Castlebar obviously have no work to do if they have to investigate into this prank call. It appears that they are just sooo humiliated that they have to make it out to be more serious than it really is.
What would they do if something dramatic happened in Castlebar??
And as for the Connacht Telegraph, oh please! Who buys that paper anyway..

Ye Olde Toade hahahaaaaaa….great stuff. And what other inventive things do you do for amusement?

Joe Ninety Thats hilarious. Yous have no sense of humour if you dont think it was funny. Wasting Garda Time my hole. It was only a few seconds of time. Im sure they spend alot more time on the phone to Dominos and in Chipper Queues

volperosso don’t see what’s funny here – play a prank, two guys crack a joke (yes i don’t think he believed it to be true ya numbskulls) about a meteor, check each other is ok, say goodbye. big deal. hear funnier things in the street every day. doesn’t say much for blogging if this is one of the five funniest posts…..

Enda P Em? Two garda are pleasant to each other, make a joke about a meteorite and get about their business. Hi-lay-ri-o-us?

Damien Mulley » Blog Archive » Fun and Funny – The free distribution channel for your product advertisment […] Even with little resources, a company or indvidual can get massive coverage for their product or endeavour. This seems to be happening more and more even in the little old broadband backwater of Ireland. Judging by the 10s of 1000s that visited my site to hear Twink tell her husband to zip his mickey (since removed after advice) and the loads of hits that Claire got for the Meteorite Gardai, it shows there is a massive potential audience even for something so parochial and the cost of distribution is zero.

Lex Ferenda » Meteorites hit the Times […] A silly bit of Web audio based on a phone prank (audio here, YouTube version here, although still audio. This reduces me (and others) to helpless laughter. I have resolved to use “Meteorite Hit The Line” as the title of my next essay, if at all possible. Anyway, the Irish Times published a little story on it today, although tragically they didn’t mention the punchline, just some po-faced worrying: A Garda superintendent in Co Mayo has issued a warning to phone pranksters following an incident in which the communication rooms in two of the main Garda stations in the county were linked up via mobile phone and the subsequent conversations posted on the internet.

gingerpixel.com » Gardai Animated […] Yesterday afternoon I got an email from an Irish animator, Ian Kenny, who funnily enough I intended to post about as part of an update to an earlier post. Last week, totally unrelated to that, he had been sent a link to the Garda Prank post and thought it would be a great clip to animate. The result can be viewed on his site HERE and it’s absolutely brilliant, he’s captured the expressions and timing perfectly. Great work Ian! […]

ByteSurgery » Irish Blog Awards is a No Go. – Digital Media Engineering [ Robin Blandford ] […] So – let’s do some comparisons of the finalists, and this is with no disrespect to the blogs or people I’m talking about here -it’s purely in relation to the category they’ve been voted for under (by other people): ‘Best Designed Blog’ – how are standard blog templates A B & C finalists? How is a D a best ‘newcomer’ if started in September 2005? How are E and F, while very funny, ‘Most Humerous Post’ if just linking to someone else’s joke – not their own content? The possible “Best Irish Sports Blog” could be In Fact Ah with approximately 3 posts a months actually about a sport, the other 95% is Arts & Culture – and justified for that award. […]
