OK, I'm sure you lot saw this one already, but as I was on holidays I missed it. It's American chatshow host Jay Leno, having an (alco)pop at our esteemed leader Brian Cowen.
Now Leno is pretty famous in the US - his show currently averages about 3.8 million viewers, in fact. And his ratings are down at the minute...
Before this edition of the Tonight programme aired, I imagine if you had conducted a vox pop on any American street, asking people who Ireland's prime minister was, they would have been as clueless as the Alicia Silverstone character. So fair play to Brian, he has raised Ireland's profile abroad no end in these difficult times. Well done.
I wonder were there many US multinational CEOs watching? I'm sure they were equally impressed.
