Aw, Shucks!

Headline: Irishman wins world oyster opening championship

It was the first win for Ireland in 10 years but the country's 15th overall in the four-decade history of the competition, which has long been a major feature of the Galway Oyster Festival, now in its 52nd year.

Something tells me when you combine hundreds of oysters, lots of drinking, and a hotel, the only sensible idea for the next festival on the calendar would be to celebrate the bumper crop of babies.

I'll take a stab at it and guess the most popular baby names next year will be Shelley, Pearl, Rocky, or Barney.

And have no doubt, they'll have every comfort known to man at their disposal, afterall, the world will be their oyster.

Remember also that Oysters are a well know aphrodisiac. I bet he and his partner celebrated all night long. Oysters, champagne and a prize winning ceremony. Boy, I bet he came out of his shell that night.
