    Just wondering what people think?

    I go into the local pub, I meet people who can't speak english, have no teeth and really large hands.

    On the world stage we have a small poet Michael D Higgins, could be mistaken as a Leprechaun.

    We have Michael Ring who thinks sport is better than health.

    When we are abroad we are expected to sing, drink and dance.

    After the tiger have nothing to show.

    Not being able to spell being is more shameful IMO.

    In fairness thats all very mild compared to what other contries should be embarrassed/ashamed for.

    OP made a balls of this thread


  • Site Banned Posts: 1,678 ✭✭✭Andy!!


    It's even more embarrasing, considering your ability of spelling very basic English words. Who is it that can't speak English again?

    But yes, Ireland is an awful ****hole. Which is why I got out, and plan to stay out.

    And what about all the good things this country has???
    The only embarrassment around here is the OP!!

    They're either Brazilian or Gaeltoirs.

    It's embarrassing been in this thread.

    Locking this as it's now only about the OP's incorrect grammar, and much as it grates me too, we all know that Grammar Nazism is a crime round these parts.

    A little reminder
    .

    Although, I'm not really sure what the thread was really supposed to be about in the first place, tbh.

    Too add: If you want to be a Grammar Nazi in a safe and accepting environment, may I direct you to the Spell Czechs forum?
