The Great Muppet Caper would be a better title
A fiasco from start to finish marked by incompetence and self-importance from every single person involved from McQuaid onwards.
My fave part of the whole thing was when during the TdF people realised Kimmage might not be the loveable, pleasant Irish victim they had him pegged for.
