“Feckin' sexy bitch!”
“Filthy fucker took my land and built his house on it.”
“I don't need this crap!”
Pat Kenny (felled by the Normans too long ago to matter) is a tyrannical three-legged scrap of leftover timber from a 200-foot Irish Redwood tree. Employed by RTÉ for as long as anyone can remember, he presented long-running television farce The Lite Lite Show until 2009 when the Ryan Tubridy Resistance Corps laid siege to his studio with machine guns and threatened to eat him alive if their leader wasn't made host. Pat promptly resigned in disgrace and has been living on bin scraps from the back of a broken down truck ever since. He presents the occasional update on the price of ham, The Frontloin, which airs in the Monday night graveyard slot.
Pat's marriage to media darling Gerry Ryan caused a national scandal when it resulted in Ireland's first divorce in 1997. Ten years later his dispute with a neighbouring farmer over a plot of land was dubbed the "trial of the century" by The New York Times.
In August 1957 when the first Norman settlers reached Dublin 4, they knocked over a 200-foot Redwood tree and built the RTÉ studios on that site. Out of the fallen redwood grew the supreme Adonis, the immaculate, the triumphant, Pat Kenny. Due to his varnished finish (and, as he admitted, a tummy tuck here and there) he hasn't aged a day since.
Pat grew up on the studio parking lot, feeding off of the scraps obtained from the RTÉ canteen by day and living in the studio for Stop The Lights! at night. At the age of 22, he met his future wife, Dana while venturing outside of the studios for the first time. However she accidentally ran over him in her Mercedes. When he woke from his coma 42 minutes later he discovered he had fathered three children and grown an extra leg. Deciding he couldn't feed his children and his unemployed wife on canteen food scraps and struggling to foot the bills required for extra footwear as the government announced its decision to tax children's shoes, Pat sought a job in RTÉ's broadcasting department to relieve some of his financial woes. Pat Kenny is more famous for his singing and presenting of the 2011 Eurovision song contest. Pat had to fill in for John in the 2011 Eurovision song contest, due to John's unfortunate ankle injury.
Pat's big break came as a cue-card operator on Irish television's current affairs radio programme Tonight Tonight, Today, The Day Today, Tonight. Later in the series he stepped in as a substitute host when original host Aenghus McAnally fell ill with acute gastroenteritis. It was on Tonight Tonight, Today, The Day Today, Tonight that Pat uttered the now legendary phrase, "You Feckin' Sparrowfart!", as he dropped a stapler on his foot while explaining to the audience the ins and outs of Dustin the Turkey Flu. This iconic moment in Irish broadcasting history resulted in him receiving the job of full-time co-anchor.
He became an unprotected sex symbol after commentating on the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, even being forced to leave Ireland for a short period for his own safety. He lived with eskimos in the North Pole for a while after being refused entry to several European countries and Canada. On his return to Ireland, he was given a guest presenting slot on weekly chat show Saturday Live, giving him the chance to demonstrate his newly learnt fishing and hunting skills to a captivated audience on a weekly basis. His charm and wit impressed the producers so much that they made him permanent host, renaming the show Kenny Live in honour of his huge ego. Pat Kenny's Big Ego Live On Saturday Night On RTÉ One was briefly considered as a title but was subsequently rejected as being far too long, following protests from the subtitling division.
This new move began an intense and bitter rivalry with the host of the legendary The Lite Lite Show, Gay Byrne. So intense and bitter was the feud between the two presenters that both nominated themselves for the the Irish presidential election, 1993 but lost out to Marty Morrissey. This intense and bitter rivalry also extended to the production crews. Years of tension came to a head in an incident which resulted in each show's (female) producers being involved in a cat-fight in the RTÉ canteen. Both producers were given suspended sentences. One participants hair was pulled completely out of her head, leading to her withdrawal from public life when she suffered a nervous breakdown after having been mistaken for Sinead O'Connor.
After this bust-up, Gay Byrne decided to retire. Having reached the ripe old age of 103, and survived many murder attempts by Kenny (including 3 anvil droppings), Gay decided to spend more time running over old ladies on the Harley Davidson presented to him by Bono. Pat's Ego demanded that Pat be given the prime The Lite Lite Show presenting role. He continues to present the show to this day, boring an entire nation to tears on a weekly basis (extensive summer holiday period excluded).
Pat Kenny will eventually step down from The Lite Lite Show in 2008, to concentrate more on sheep. However, it has been suggested that he may stay on the show, and that his other job will be run by his third cousin, Zombie Katy French. Amazingly the first prediction came true in 2009, one year too late. Pat was shoved off to Monday nights screaming in an ambulance to present The Frontloin, a weekly topical debate show on the price of ham.
