Germans still positive on Ireland despite euro zone crisis
Opinion polls show a majority of two to one believe Ireland is trying hard to fix the economy. Surprisingly, a greater percentage of Irish people than Germans believe that we should be trying harder to fix our economic mess.
Yet on the other hand, most German people know bugger all about Ireland.
Why is this? Quite, simply because we are a small tiny country that suffers from the illusion that everyone knows us. Those that are familiar with Ireland recognise us for the craic and drinking. Therefore, lads no need for a screaming fit each and ever time some one mislabels us as British.
Please do not shout I’m Irish, God dammit, otherwise people identify you as being touchy and unhinged. However, this is OK if you need to be alone.
Irish, Ah British if only I had a pint for every time I heard that I be a happy man.
Irish what are they, pet animals? Can I have one are they cuddly?
What, There are Irish people here, right beside us, mother of Jesus, in our town, how terrible? You mean the Christ on a wafer brigade, bog-trotting culchies, stealing our jobs raping our woman. Oh well I guess it’s better to be Irish than Welsh. You’re from where…I hear they eat their young.
You know I just love walking down Kurfürstendamm with my midget girl friend and she decked out in bottle green hot pants adorned with shamrocks and a pig under her arm. You should see the looks we get. I told her if anyone calls you, British just smack him one.
