One of my favourite things ever is the 300 year gap in Irish inventions after whiskey was invented pic.twitter.com/PL3TV1O9OL

Ah, the Irish. Which, might I add, is where my own majestic and superior DNA comes from as well. So I get to roll my eyes at this, at least:
Helen Heaphy’s number came up at the bingo hall. The prize was a trip to court.
The 50-year-old grandmother pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of possessing cocaine for sale or supply after Irish police caught her with the narcotic outside a Cork bingo hall.
It’s not that she got arrested; it’s that the Irish legal system allowed her off with a fine despite her rap sheet. Hell, they let her back in the bingo hall. Truly, the ways of my family’s ancestral people must be strange and confusing to the outsider…
Represent, brothers. Represent.
There’s more than one cultural group out there that knows how to generate some righteous hoofing, thank you very much.
No whiskey in the Arctic Circle.
PS: …Hey, I’m 15/16th Boston Irish Catholic, buddy. I’m allowed to make stereotypical jokes about drunken Irishmen. :shrug: Besides, it’s God’s own truth that the Irish do get cranky without their whiskey. And beer. And… well, what do you have handy, anyway?
