I checked with my hurling-mad friend, he’s called No Fault Froggy Boy. He said there’s no real prejudice among Cork hurling fans. I said not even towards Waterford men who talk like they have their head in a barrel of water? No Fault Froggy Boy said no, Cork hurling fans only look down on one group of people. I said who’s that. He said Cork footballers. Ouch.
Any chance you could make it 12? I phoned my Posh Cousin, she’ll campaign against anything aimed at people who’ve never eaten hake. I said is there any organisation to stop this sort of thing. She said you should join NIMB. I said what’s that. She said Not In My Blackrock. I said but the woman lives in Douglas. She said, oh my God, that’s awful. I said Douglas has a lot going for it. She said name one, other than it isn’t Bishopstown. I said good point.
Thinks? You’re charmingly retro. There hasn’t been a vicious banner like that over Cork since 1994, when one circled over Ballinlough saying, “Audrey came home with no knickers.” (I went all out for my debs.) The only way to boast these days is with a volley of passive-aggressive hashtags on Facebook. Throw up a photo of Rory in his uniform, followed by #SoProud #CostingFortune #SecondMortage #NoHolidaysForUsNextYear #OnlyMessing #5StarResortCorsica #KenOnSixfigures #NotLowSixFiguresEither #InCaseYouAreWondering
Obviously, if she’s going out with you. I don’t think you can do much about this now. You’d have a better chance of finding a metro station in Boherbue. It’s very dangerous to get someone else to do your stalking on social media. I said to a male acquaintance once, is there any chance you could get me half an hour with Simon Zebo? He said, is there any chance you could ask someone other than your husband. My Conor is very sensitive about these things.
So am I, if it keeps people like you at home. We’ve lived with West Kerry people for centuries and we still haven’t a clue what they’re saying. This will be highlighted next week, when a West Kerry man presents the Rose of Tralee. (It’s a beauty pageant for plain looking Americans.) It’s amazing they spend all that money on the show and still can’t afford subtitles for Dáithí O ‘Sé.
