Puckoon is a comic novel by Spike Milligan, first published in 1963. It is his first full-length novel, and only major fictional work. Set in 1924, it details the troubles brought to the fictional Irish village of Puckoon by the Partition of Ireland: the new border, due to the incompetence of the Boundary Commission, passes directly through the village, with most of the village placed in the independent Irish Free State, but with a significant portion to Northern Ireland.

The protagonist of the novel is the feckless Dan Milligan, a man so lazy that the author is obliged to take direct action to prevent him spending the entire novel lounging about at home; thus alerted to his status as a fictional character, Dan frequently breaks the fourth wall, speaking directly to the writer about the trouble he has been made to endure.

A film adaptation, written and directed by Terence Ryan, was released in 2002. It starred Sean Hughes as the renamed "Dan Madigan" and (after Spike Milligan's poor health prevented him from taking the part) Richard Attenborough as the narrator,[1] along with several other well-known English, Irish and American character actors including Elliott Gould, Griff Rhys Jones, Milo O'Shea, Marc Sinden, Daragh O'Malley, Nickolas Grace and Freddie Jones.[2] Jane Milligan (Spike's daughter) appeared in a small role.

Puckoon was adapted for the stage by Vincent Higgins and Zoe Seaton on commission by Big Telly Theatre Company. It toured Ireland from January–March 2009 and again in early 2010.[3]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
