Cracking Cheese Brian

I've just realised that I haven't actually done this story justice. Since Babies who brunch left a comment on my post Pardon my French alluding to the free cheese phenomenon hitting Irish shores I've been inundated with questions about it. For those of you who aren't in the know the story is basically this:

Irish Government breaks Ireland. Irish Government then announces 50 tonnes of free cheese will be distributed throughout the country to those in need in time for Christmas. Country gasps in disbelief. Media picks up storyline. The Irish become the butt of all jokes once again. The End.

Understandably some people still don't actually believe it's true. For you I have only one question 'Do you not understand just how stupid our Government is???'

Anyway, I suppose it's given us Irish folk some good material to work with. At least we can all come together in a collective groan of disbelief. And I must admit - there is a little glint of delight. 'Eh, sarry? Did he juz say he's gonna give us FREE CHEESE? Really? No, but, really? Jaysus I can't wait to tell the lads. Goddamn feckin eejits'.

Or something along those lines.

Bad as it all sounds, to make matters even worse (and just to show you how incredibly out of touch our Government is), they actually announced this proposal a) with pride and b) the day after unveiling a figure of €6 billion in cuts to an already struggling population. Sigh.

However, there is some good news to report. Whilst trawling through all the embarrassing online articles on the subject I found this:

I urge you to take a look at the Party's founder Bock the Robber and his hilarious post. The comments that follow are worth a look also. It almost makes me proud to be Irish again.

Viva Irlanda! The revolution begins at last!
