There has been a noticeable trend on this site lately.
Once upon a time, back in the dim distant days of history this site was visited by a moxy load of Irish. That’s not really surprising as this is an Irish site. However that changed after a while. To my horror I realised a load of Merkans were dropping in to the extent that there were more of them than the Irish. They remained top dog for a very long time,
In the last year or two there has been another phenomenon – the rise of the Brits. More and more of ‘em were dropping by and they successfully nudged Ireland into third place. Lately they have even been overtaking the Merkans.
There are quite a few advantages to this. The main advantage is that the Brits have a better idea than the Merkans how to spell. I’m not saying that the Brits are perfect but at least they know which side a fanny is on and and how “colour” should be spelt.
Some years ago I made an attempt to teach the Merkans a drop of grammar and spelling but they were too busy bombing Iraq at the time to take any notice. I gave up on that one.
Of course I have to be a tad more careful now with my little scribbles. I have the whole of the Atlantic between me and Merka which makes a physical attack less likely. However the Irish Sea is a good deal narrower, and a riled Brit could land on my doorstep within an hour or two of my posting something that annoyed them.
As for the Irish? My Irish visitors have been dropping off faster than Greece’s credit rating. They are currently in danger of being overtaken by Canada and Cambodia. Cambodia, for fuck’s sake!
So that’s where all the Irish are emigrating to?
