PEOPLE LIKE TO say that Ireland is a backward country. But we were YEARS ahead of the USA in one crucial field: live news reports featuring men falling hilariously on the ice.

So who did a better job of falling hilariously on the ice?

Poll Results:

RTE guy (310)
Me, last winter, but there weren't any cameras around (252)
American guy (2)

Remember the man who slipped on the ice? Here’s what happened next>
