Twenty Major was born some years ago in Dublin, Ireland. He lives on, or around, the South Circular Road with a dog called Bastardface and a cat called Throatripper. He spent his formative years on the streets of Dublin playing football, kick the can and robbing blind people with collection tins. After many years of training he became the youngest fully qualified shepherd in Ireland and by the time he was thirty he was a Shepherd Master. He still tends to his flock on a daily basis but has other more diverse business interests as well, such as ensuring people are protected, keeping ustoms officials on their toes, importing refugees to work on shady building sites and pork belly futures. His best friend is called Jimmy the Bollix and they drink, on a daily basis, in Ron's bar. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 but was beaten to the gong by Bishop Desmond Tutu who ran a vigorous dirty tricks campaign against him. He has never forgiven Tutu and will one day have his revenge. His other mortal enemies include Daryl Hall, LL Cool J (who stole his rap) and any kind of clown. Twenty Major writes a daily blog at www.twentymajor.net which is amongst the most widely read and popular in Ireland. It contains stories of his day to day life, social commentary, foul-mouthed rants and many stomach churning puns based on 80s pop music. He won three awards, including the prize for Overall Best Blog, at the very first Irish Blog Awards in 2006. He won the Overall Best Blog award again in the 2007 awards.
