Any local ladies who have pink post-its on their desks are seriously at risk of being accused of being Tom’s Chocolate Stalker. Yep, Operation Transformation is now at the half way mark and Bernie’s GNASHERS are finding Tom’s FAT CHOPS breathing down their necks.
The GNASHERS have lost an incredible 7.5 stone and FAT CHOPS over 6.5. But Bernie’s crew are slowing down and Tom’s team consistently creeping up, despite the tactics being applied.
Team leader Tom received chocolate bars in the post last week but whilst the Garda Forensic Department are not treating the matter seriously, it is believed that a local investigation is underway to indentify the culprit who wrapped the chocolate teasers in pink post-its with a hand written message “Ah, go on, Tom”.
Tom, who has mastered the handball courts at world and national level and trained GAA teams to take county and Leinster championships, says he will not be intimidated by sugar sweeteners or candy killers. Bernie MacAtamney has strenuously denied that it was the GNASHERS who sent the tempting mail and issued a statement saying “The GNASHERS would not stoop to such levels and we have applied a new training ‘family focused’ fitness regime this week to regain our momentum”.
There’s now seven teams competing in Ballymore’s OT with nightly boot camps at the GAA pitch and weekly weigh ins at Paddy’s on Tuesdays at 8pm. Elisabeth Deegan has decked the window of her hair salon on Chapel Street with an inspirational display encapturing the OT theme: “Little Pickers wear Big Knickers”. And so, the calorie count-down continues.
