This week in Ireland we celebrate the undead with the annual “Dublin Zombie Walk”, and to commemorate this wonderful day we here at Humourisms got our resident cartoonist, Rob Stears, to go wild on the topic of the “living-impaired”. Enjoy…

Humourisms own Damon Blake and George Fox present their featured sketch from last weeks “The Late Late Late Show” Podcast, where Damon manages to get a one on one interview with Dark Knight Rises director, Christopher Nolan.
Damon Blake is a comedy maker and tea-drinker. He likes comic books and hurting people’s feelings. He’s the Uncle Ben to the bitter loners of Humourisms, ie, his death will motivate them on to greater things.You can find him on Twitter @Damon_Blake writing jokes and crying.
George Fox is a Comedian/ Writer based In Dublin, Ireland. He can be seen performing live at numerous venues across Ireland. Follow him on Twitter or Facebook to find out dates for upcoming shows. He does not know what Christopher Nolan actually sounds like.
Anyone who is reading a geek comedy website is sure to be a cool guy, totally down with all the balls, foot or otherwise. Our readers are men’s men, the kind of men who like to be manly with other man’s men, while watching tertiary man’s men run about a field, like men do. But maybe you slipped through the cracks, and got past any one of our seventeen anti-nerd countermeasures, and wandered onto this site – how do you interact with all the real men’s men, like us here at Humourisms? Between long winded posts about European philosophers and filming Game Boys webisodes, there’s nothing we like better than cracking a beer or similar carbonated beverage, and sitting down with the lads to watch ‘the big match’.
So, it’s been left up to me to explain to you non-macho men how to cope in the football-themed conversations that are currently dominating the country, and that we here at Humourisms freely engage in while lifting weights, eating steak directly off the cow, or on our way to and from our most reliable prosititutes. So, here is Humourisms’ guide to bluffing your way through Euro 2012.
Firstly, you must identify if you are, indeed, a bluffer. Here is a quick test, that you can take, at home, free of charge;
1) What do you and your friends, as a group, look like?
2) As a child, which of these costumes would you have been more likely to wear?
3) Finally, and perhaps most concisely, which character from Revenge of the Nerds do you most identify with?
The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship kicks off today so David Reilly and Conor O’Toole decided to provide the good readers of Humourisms.com with a list of fun facts for you to impress your friends with. Think of it as a guide to the competition for the more Donkey Kong orientated demographic.
This week, Jon Hozier-Byrne explains the merits of giving Jon Hozier-Byrne a job.
As of quite recently, I am on the job hunt. I am journalist by trade, and have edited whole newspapers, magazines, and contributed to the Irish Times and other such big-time newspapers, but unfortunately, finding a job in the ever-expanding field of journalism is a degree more difficult than one might think. In fact, if you’re reading this, there is a decent enough chance that you’ve googled my name after I sent you a CV, and are trying to size me up as a candidate for employment, and also to see if I am mental. Well, look no further, as I present to you; five reasons why the search ends here, and why I am the only employee you will ever need.
5. I have lots of fancy book learning
As you can see from the above photograph of me looking at some books while holding my glasses, I am clearly the intellectual type. I have a Masters in Film studies, and a Bachelors in Philosophy and Film, clinically proven to be the two most intellectual and fancy of the Arts disciplines. Whats more, my Junior Cert results were off the hook. Seriously, they called me Mister CSPE. Continue reading →
