A wee headline caught my eye today.
NRA confirms Jack Lynch Tunnel works.
A lovely vision sprang to mind.
The National Roads Authority decides that the time has come to see if the Jack Lynch Tunnel [under the Lee in Cork] works. After all, it has been there for 21 years but no one has ever officially tested it.
They dispatch Team A [the Gobshites] to the Southern end of the tunnel, while Team B [the Fuckwits] drive a car in at the North end. When the Fuckwits manage to emerge at the Southern end, the Gobhites confirm this and there is a moment of celebration.
They then swap ends and the Fuckwits wait at the Northern end while the Gobshites drive through from the South.
Having finally discovered [at a cost of several million, no doubt] that the tunnel actually works, the NRA issue a press statement and crack open the Bollinger.
Unfortunately it was just a bad headline.
It’s merely about more EU interference.
It reminds me of a headline I saw many years ago – “FCA Champion shot”. My first reaction was ‘how terrible’. Then I realised the article was a bloke getting a medal for being a good marksman.
Only 21 years ? Well it is Cork after all !!
I would still rather have your NRA than ours.
I first read it and thought WTF does the NRA (National Rifle Association) care about some tunnel in Ireland. Then I thought why isn’t the ISSU confirming a new range in Ireland since they would be the governing body over competition there. Then I thought, I’m hungry and I went and made a sandwich for lunch. It was good along with a cold Mountain Dew. Then I came back to this site after reading K8’s latest offering and read the article. I like our NRA better than yours.
We have to bow to our federal overlords. Now you have to bow to your european masters. Remember they know what’s best for us despite what anybody else says.
Mossy – It is the one great thing about that tunnel.. you don’t have to visit Cork City. Unless of course, you’re a masochist?
TT & Brianf – It is a toss up as to which I would prefer. Your version shoots people and our version fleeces them of every last cent with all their fucking toll-booths. On balance, I think I would prefer yours…..
Sure you would until your wife and kids got shot to death by some crazed nut with an Uzi. You might change your mind then.
Is all that mandatory? I think I might stay with our lot after all…..
Grandad, You have to realize that there are those out there who think guns kill people in the same way that forks made Mary Harney fat
I am in need of little history lesson here. Was the tunnel used or unused all these past 21 years? Not that it really matters, anyway.
No, people kill people. WITH GUNS.
Don’t know about you lot but I always find ‘Roadworks Ahead’ signs strangely comforting when speeding down motorways.
Jedrzej – I don’t know why, but you somehow ended up as Spam. I don’t check in there very often!
