There is an advertisement running on Irish television at the moment.
Now I’m not quite sure what is it about.
Are they commenting on the state of our roads and footpaths? If so, they should surely just contact the county councils and get them to do something about it? The film is indeed quite an accurate portrayal, and you do take your life in your hands when out for a quiet stroll.
Or is it a comment on our weather? Dark, wet and fucking miserable all the time? Surely not a good thing to be advertising in this great year of the Gathering?
“Two thirds of the pedestrians killed on our roads have been drinking?”
Now that is scary.
From now on, I am no longer going to walk home from the pub.
It’ll be the car every time.
