Tell us an Irish joke, sup contentedly on Baileys

Ah, Baileys, hiding there in the depths of the booze cabinet, next to the port that's been open for 20 years, the half-finished cheap whisky that your dodgy uncle brought round for that ill-fated family barbecue and the watered down bottle of vodka your teenagers got stuck into for their after-ball. The problem with this all-too-common alcohol scenario is that Baileys is best served chilled, so, to encourage people to put it in the fridge, it has launched a new on-pack promotion where a code on the sticker is revealed once the bottle has been suitably chilled.

You then enter the unique code online at and wammo, you're in the running for $100,000 worth of prizes. All entries receive one-month of free DVD rentals from Fatso and, if you've got the luck of the Irish cream, you could win one of nine Bang & Olufsen entertainment systems.

But wait, there's more. We've got three whole bottles of the good creamy stuff to give away. So tell us an Irish joke* and we'll send the best chortlers some liquid booty.

*StopPress has Irish roots, so it's okay.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
