A couple of anecdotes on that most extraordinary speciman : THE DUB
Ah Dublin! Capital of Ireland. Europe's smallest capital and also its smelliest. Step off a train at Heuston or
Connolly station and breathe in that un-mistakeable aroma of piss and puke. But it's the people of Dublin who make
our capital city what it is. We call them 'Jackeens' because of a visit to Dublin by Queen Victoria which saw the
locals line O'Connell Street while waving union jacks at their visitor. Ask anyone with even half a brain how many
counties there are in Ireland and they will tell you 32. But not our friends in Dublin. For some bizarre reason they
firmly believe there are only two:
2)"dowen da coontry".
Next time you're in Dublin, check out the excellent selection of Radio Stations, both of
which play the same five songs all day. Whether it's 98fm or 104fm, tune in at any time of the
day to hear Robbie Williams and The Lighthouse Family. You'll never get tired of it !!!
Anyway, here are the ten most asked questions about Dubs.
1)Why do Dublin people piss in the streets instead of a toilet?
2)Why do they refer to all other Irish people as Sheep Shaggers when we all know damn well what
they're doing with those horses. A man from Ballyfermot (probably called Anto) recently got divorced from his cousin
so he could marry his horse.
3)Why is their knowledge of Irish geography restricted to "da nart soide and da sout soide"?
4)Why does their knowledge of Irish history go all the way back to the 1980's?
5)Why do they complain about "doze bleedin' niggers coming over here taking ere women and ere jobs" when Paul McGrath is
"yer only man" and "God Bless Phillo"?
6)What the fuck language are they speaking?
7)Why is hurling a culchie game until Dublin win a match when it suddenly becomes"Hooorlin',da fastest field sport in da bleedin' wooorld".?
8)Why can't they go for a drink without trying to stab each other afterwards?
9)Why can't they accept Aslan are never going to make it 'cause they're Shite?
10)Why are they all still wearing track-suits?
