Favourite pub snack??

I suppose we can all agree that food is ultimately the best counterpart for alcohol, besides drugs and sex that is. Most Irish pubs have a very limited supply of bar snacks compared to other countries in Europe and America. I don't know the reason for this and frankly I couldn't give a fiddler's fart.
Implying that I know how to tickle your interests, here are a few examples of the snacks that we Irish enjoy...
Enjoy!
 








So what type of Pub snacks do you outsiders like?

A couple of days prior to Cowen's debut on the Jay Leno show, the BIFFO made international headlines when he appeared drunk on Morning Ireland. As he staggered through the interview, Cowen made a countless number of cock ups, like mixing the Croke Park Agreement up with the Good Friday Agreement. Now I know that loads of commies are arguing that Cowen was simply hung over and hoarse from the night before, but if you have ever spent the entire night on the lash and needed to get up early for the next morning, you should realise that its quite common to wake up still under the influence.
The BIFFO  described such allegations as nonsense, which 'should be left in the dustbin'.
However the song in the video below will rap up the entire incident in a matter of 1 minute and 39 seconds.







This funny looking man's name is PJ Sheenan, a Fine Gael TD from the south west of Cork. Last September he approached the gates of Leinster house and demanded that a female Guard let him leave the premises, without any hassle or delay.

Now your probably wondering why on earth would a Guard try and prevent a "respectable" TD from driving home after a hard days work.

But as it turns out, 'Peanut head' got very well-acquainted to the bar at Leinster house and departed in the most deplorable way imaginable. The female Guard explained that he was too intoxicated to drive home safely and offered to call him a taxi.

Instead of listening to her mindful advise, Peanut head began to shout abuse at the Guard, claiming that her career would be over once his party gets into power.

At the time of the incident, Sheehan was so drunk that he required assistance to remain upright and later claimed that he had little memory of the event.

Back to basics



So here we are again, back to the good auld days. Back to a time where our government drains the benefits and pleasures out of living. They are the reason for our downfall. They are the reason why ordinary people cannot afford to enjoy the basic necessities of leisure. As my Dad often says, "They might as well take the steam from our piss!"

In the words of the late Ronnie Drew, "The history of Ireland is a history of oppression and the struggle of the people against it. The history of landlords and conniving politicians who sought to deprive the people of their birthright. And regular times in Ireland's past, these grievances have boiled over and the ordinary people have reacted in the only way open to them. REBELLION!"

But surely our government's intentions are good. Surely they need to make the odd budget adjustment here and there, in order to retrieve Ireland's prosperity. Do you honestly think that our politicians want to drag us back to a time where we were portrayed as conservative, God fearing drunken idiots???

Now you may be wondering how can an angry rant about the Irish government possibly have to do with a blog about drink. Well here are a few examples.....




A couple of weeks ago a prime example of our government's reputation was put on display in the US, on the Jay Leno show. Millions of yanks tuned in and saw the BIFFO (big ignorant fucker from Offaly) being subjected to a game called 'Bartender, politician or comic'?
Leno showed a photo of Cowen and asked the audience to guess his profession.
He then ended the sketch by saying: "So nice to know we're not the only country with drunk morons."
I personally thought that this skit was hilarious. I always love seeing our country's leaders being ridiculed on behalf of the Americans (of all people).
