I think it would have gone over better if they included more than one satire joke. Otherwise, it kinda looked legit.
 
2014-07-27 03:09:30 PM  
Actually, it also would have went over better if they ended with "No Irish drunks" and then the next line said "Ok, Irish drunks allowed but only if they start a tab first" or some other way to imply it was truly a joke.

How long did it take for the smell to wear off you after falling in the river?

I knew a guy that fell into the river. He stunk to high hell for a while and had to cut his hair all of because he couldn't get the smell out of it.

It's believed the sign originated from an 'inside joke' within the community relating to particular event.
 That's why it's INSIDE, you don't expose it the OUTSIDERS if there is indeed a funny, possibly discriminatory joke involved...

Pacing is important. Also, I can't recall in three bicycle tours of Ireland ever seeing someone truly drunk. London, Cardiff, Glasgow and Edinburgh, hell, yes...tripping over the self-pissing garglers.


I credit the high cost of booze and the difficulty of operating certain Irish instruments after pint number three.

I'm always the buzzkiller on this topic, being of recent Irish descent and having lost family members to alcoholism.  I understand the problem of Irish drinking as much as anyone.

The "No Irish Drunks" sign was great.  I'm fine with the self deprecating humor.  If you're offended by the sign, stay sober and prove it wrong.

Exactly. The Irish in America embraced gallows humor long ago.

The Irish already went through that stage of the Great American Welcome. Now it's the Mooslems, Mexicans and children's turn as targets of abuse and racism and the Irish now get to join in on the vile hatred and derision Americans have for centuries used to welcome those yearning to breathe free to it's shores.
