    Will Cavsn win Ulster this year as usual? It would be done craic if they played Meath.

    In the English soccer I'm tipping Portsmouth, top class team

    Young couples are being edged out if the market.
    Anecdotally we hear of daily commutes from Stillorgan and Raheny!

    Hope they're married, not living in sin.

    People having inside loos

    Oh I say. Imagine defecating indoors. The smell would be most unpleasant. How vile.

    The Catholic Church must be pleased

    These trams all over Dublin are just annoying. They should be replacing the lot with motorised omnibusses. I think it would work a lot better.

    Where's that?

    Poland? It's that big chunk of land that used to be in Prussia, and then the Bolshes tried to take over a few years ago. I was reading in the Irish Press the other day about that Free Danzig City thing they put in there to promote peace between Poland and Herr Hitler's Germany. Looks like it's working so far...

    just reminded me of a blackadder quote
    Mrs. Pants:
    But what about the privies?

    Blackadder:
    Um, well, what we are talking about in privy terms is the latest in front wall fresh air orifices combined with a wide capacity gutter installation below.

    Mrs. Pants:
    You mean you crap out the window?

    Blackadder:
    Yes.

    Mrs. Pants:
    Well in that case we'll definitely take it. I can't stand those dirty indoor things.

    jaysus, the shops are cleaned out of toilet roll, fecken horders

    What's toilet roll ?

    Another one of the cousins in Birmingham has just gone and joined the British Army and the lucky sod is off to Singapore, some place nice and warm over near China I hear.
    There is another brother a soldier over in Egypt enjoying the sun and he reckons even if there is a war it'll never get near them.

    If we join with Hitler to fight the English does that mean I might get to fight the cousins.
    Never liked the feckers. (God forgive me)

    They keep rubbing our face in it that they have an indoor privy.

    We don't talk that much about them as aunty Mary Kate took up with a protestant.
    Bad enough that he was English.

    Fr William my uncle was very upset.
    Funny he doesn't call as much now since we grew up.
    He was always very worried about our impure thoughts.

    I've cousins on the other side in America, one is in the Navy and just got a move to a big battleship in Hawaii.

    Lucky feckers the lot of them and me at home here dragging the donkey to creamery and chasing the pigs round the haggard.

    Now must go and say the rosary afteral those impure thoughts about Mary down the road.

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    They've launched these things called briquettes, like turf only all the same size, should be a big seller
