This Guiness is Rippa'
A kangaroo is roaming the green hills of Ireland after escaping a circus near the picturesque port of Kinsale.
"This kangaroo broke loose just before the show while they were bringing him from the cages to the arena. He decided to take a walk but has not returned," said local farmer John Walsh on whose land the 2-year-old male, named Sydney, made his break for freedom.
Circus staff launched a fruitless four-hour search following the escape on Sunday. Once it got dark, the staff went to the bar for boiled potatoes and warm beer. Although they did not find the animal that night, they did get up to some merriment and sang some "right deadly" tunes.
There had since been one unconfirmed sighting of the animal, renamed "Hoppy" by locals and described as two and a half to three foot (76 to 91 centimetres) tall and dark in colour.
Colin Farrell has also been missing but his disappearance may be linked to a 6 day bender which has seen the actor tossed from numerous bars, several hotels, and a brothel in a fishing community, which goes on record to serve "basses, lasses, & asses".
