    Larry is an instituion... they can;t ever get rid of him...

    one other classic moment was after a round of Larry's quiz and a poor lad hadn't done so well... live on national radio

    (After about 24 questions, of which the lad on the phone got 0 correct)

    Larry: Well let's see how you've done - well, they didn't really suit you today, did they?
    Man on Phone : Ah **** off Larry, yer only an aul bo***x

    Defining moment in history...

    Kepps, who was the guy that used to host The Late Late Show? Gay Byrne? He was a bit of an institution as well :) Ireland seems to have a few of them... :D

    alas, Gay has retired, not that he doesn't pop up every now and again... (they nail down the coffin, but he keeps getting out)
