Apparently Cheryl Cole listens to a Geordie accent to get to sleep at night, but which Norn Iron dialect would you fancy tuning in to when you're finding it hard to drop off? Nadine's Derry? Liam's Ballymena perhaps?
Or what about the late great Strabane man George Cunningham who became legendary for his fast talking during a UTV interview in the 1970s? Check it out here if you haven't seen it. His mile-a-minute delivery turned him into a local legend in his home town which is where we headed for this edition of The Magazine.
For all the bad press Strabane has had recently, I definitely think it's one of the friendliest places we've been to so far, so I hope I don't offend all you lovely Strabanians who gave me such a warm welcome with my attempt at the local lingo! Apologies in advance!
Seeing as this episode is all a bit of a laugh, we found out that this Sunday is also International Laughter Day so we sent that well-known UTV comedian Julian Simmons to see if he has what it takes to do stand-up. Ahem!? See what you think!
Eurovision fever is sweeping through the town with the countdown for this year's contest well and truly on and Ireland's hopeful is another man from Strabane, Ryan Dolan. Emma Rosa Dias caught up with him before he headed to Malmo.
Rita Fitzgerald also joins the Magazine team this week trying to master the art of an ancient form of transport - the currach! Sorry Rita, but it's hilarious! Better than Julian's standup!
So, it's the Bank Holiday Weekend and if you're lucky enough not to have work or school on Monday then what better way to celebrate than a having a giggle with The Magazine team. Sunday at 7.30pm.
Have a great weekend. See you then!
