"Stickin' out" The new look Giants Causeway photographed by the Hubble bubble toil and trouble telescope earlier

The Northern Ireland Tourist Board has unveiled its latest initiative to bring tourists back to Antrim's north coast.

Barney Haig, NI Culture Secretary, told The Spoof:

"In a new initiative we have decided to spruce up one or two of the Province's attractions, starting with the Giants Causeway. We are spending the winter colour-coding the stones and hope visitors will agree that it's an improvement for the better"

And Aron Rodd, Minister for Tourism, added:

"Oh aye! Indeed aye yes. That's stickin'out so it is...And if you ask me like, then it's quare stuff an'all. Yah cudn't bate it with a big stick so yah cudn't and it'll put Nor'n Ir'n back on the tourist map so it will"

Samuel Johnson quipped:

"Ah yes, the Giants Causeway...worth seeing but not worth going to see"

The jumped up pompous pratt.

Whilst Oscar Wilde commented:

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation"

Whatever the hell that had to do with it. But surely the last word has to go to Captain James T Kirk, as he viewed the causeway through the Hubble bubble toil and trouble telescope.

"Fascinating... what does the tri-corder say Bones?
