This just in: The Irish drink too much

And this is a problem because....

I can't wait to get back to Howth.

From 18 cases nationally for all of 1993 of people being deliberately kicked in the head, the average is now 33 a month.

God bless the Irish.

I'm part Irish so does that mean I drink the right amount?
 
2003-01-14 04:32:24 PM

or do the rest of ya just not drink enough?
 
2003-01-15 12:09:44 AM
There are only 2 types of Irish people. Drunks, and recovering alcoholics.
/That being said, I am 1/2 Irish.
 
2003-01-15 12:11:22 AM
Yes. Yes we do.
 
2003-01-15 12:11:32 AM
Irish drink too much? Does not compute. System rebooting . . .
 
2003-01-15 12:11:59 AM
Yeah, but they get rip-roaring and then write genius shiate like this:

On the first day of March it was raining
It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
I drank ten pints of beer and I cursed all the people there
And I wish that all this raining would stop falling down on me

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

At the time I was working for a landlord
And he was the meanest bastard that you have ever seen
And to lose a single penny would grieve him awful sore
And he was a miserable bollocks and a biatch's bastard's whore

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

I recall we took care of him one Sunday
We got him out the back and we broke his farking balls
And maybe that was dreaming and maybe that was real
But all I know is I left that place without a penny or fark all

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

But now I've the most charming of verandahs
I sit and watch the junkies, the drunks, the pimps, the whores
Five green bottles sitting on the floor
I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ
That I had fifteen more

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

The boys and me are drunk and looking for you
We'll eat your frigging entrails and we won't give a damn
Me daddy was a blue shirt and my mother a madam
And my brother earned his medals at Mai Lei in Vietnam

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

On the first day of March it was raining
It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
Stay on the other side of the road
'Cause you can never tell
We've a thirst like a gang of devils
We're the boys of the county hell

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

- as sung by that glorious bastard Shane McGowan.

2003-01-15 12:13:07 AM
"Young women in the 18-to-24 age bracket now outdrink their male peers"


I'm moving to Ireland... lots of drunk women who'll think I'm hot :)
 
2003-01-15 12:13:48 AM

DRRINK!
 
2003-01-15 12:13:52 AM

god invented beer and whiskey so the Irish would never take over the world

(should I capitalize God?)(god)(dog)(good)(doogie howser)
 
2003-01-15 12:14:43 AM
seems strange, but then again, i'd probly drink too much as well if i was irish...

I am ashamed of you too

Its really weird how people in that forum have pictures of the SBB girls as their icon things.
 
2003-01-15 12:17:17 AM
"so what do u get when u have an irish jew?"

A stingy drunk bastard who never buys a round.
 
2003-01-15 12:18:36 AM
An maith leat beoir?
 
2003-01-15 12:19:03 AM
i can't beleive i've never had green beer yet.
 
2003-01-15 12:19:55 AM
And in otehr news, the jews still control the media, all blacks live in low income housing, and all italians are associated with the mob. Oh yeah, and latin americans have yet to discover under arm deoderant.
 
2003-01-15 12:20:04 AM
NÃ neart go Guinness!
Guinness for strength!
 
2003-01-15 12:20:13 AM
Please, Diamond shark, start a farking flame war why don't you?

NICE ONE,

Lewis Black, the comedian, said "The Irish aren't drunks. They're professionals"
 
2003-01-15 12:21:00 AM
Damn it changed Ni with an accent over the i to Nænbsp;
 
2003-01-15 12:22:20 AM
A jew, who is your friend, will always have one drink with you, but only one. The only time a man can get shamefully drunk is at his son's Bar Mitzvah.

2003-01-15 12:22:46 AM
Ne0nDrag0n, it's not a flame war. There's nothing to argue. Bud is a shiatty, shiatty, beer...

In Canada (and likely Ireland), that crap is reserved for children and the elderly.

2003-01-15 12:23:44 AM
I agree. bud is pisswater, but many people love their pisswat..i mean bud, and they will gladly let you know it.
 
2003-01-15 12:24:14 AM
Your arse is sucking buttermilk! That said, alcohol is, by far, the most vile substance on this planet. It makes nice people fight, and ugly people reproduce. It should be relegated only for use in Molotov Cocktails to hurl at defenseless children.
 
2003-01-15 12:24:29 AM
NO WAY!
 
2003-01-15 12:24:34 AM
Ne0nDrag0nPlease, Diamond shark, start a farking flame war why don't you?

not trying to, but i am so bored at work, its either make something interesting happen, or sit here watching HAZARD IDENTIFICATION, RISK ASSESSMENT & CONTROL EVALUATIONS inch out the printer...
 
GCD
2003-01-15 12:24:48 AM
Well, they don't get any respect for drinking Bud, they get laughed at...Around here, if the alcohol content is under 7% for a beer, it ain't worth drinking.
 
2003-01-15 12:25:47 AM
so, do you drink Duff beer then? I hope you got that...
 
2003-01-15 12:26:50 AM
Yet, they fight just enough...
 
2003-01-15 12:27:08 AM
Ah, I remember the last time I was in Ireland...
 
GCD
2003-01-15 12:27:51 AM
Got what now?

It's way too late here (1:27am)...my mind's not functioning properly...but it knows enough to laugh at any idiot who's proud to drink Pisswater.
 
2003-01-15 12:28:46 AM
My point is, Jews have ancient social structures set in place for keeping people from making a habit of overindulging. The Irish, I don't think they've have much chance to overindulge until their recent economic surge. It used to be a proud thing to be a drunk Irishman. It meant you actually had money to spend on getting that way.
 
2003-01-15 12:29:38 AM
sorry, when you said "HAZARD IDENTIFICATION, RISK ASSESSMENT & CONTROL EVALUATIONS" it immediatly made me think of a nuclear power plant, which then made me think of Homer Simpson..and he drinks Duff Beer, which goes back to the discussion about Bud being pisswater and Irsih hogging on the good shiat. yeah, much too early...
 
2003-01-15 12:29:57 AM
is there any culture that doesn't drink enough?
 
2003-01-15 12:30:21 AM
What's the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish funeral?

One less drunk.

My wife (100% Irish) is an amazing drinker. I admire her.
 
2003-01-15 12:30:42 AM
i dont think the obvious tag is nearly strong enough to convey the obviousness of this.
 
2003-01-15 12:31:36 AM
Hmm...I drink a lot, too.

Managed to finish a gallon of orange juice in two days.

What?...Ohhhh, you mean drink as in 'alcoholic beverages'? Nope, sorry. Well, sometimes, on rare occasions and I never get drunk. Go Irish!

I still want to try green beer sometime, though. Heh.
