Oddly sinister use of quotation marks at a cafe my sister happened upon in Cork. Why do I get the impression that dishes are served with some fava beans and a nice chianti?
In Cork unattributed quotation marks, are automatically attributed to Roy Keane. So “LUNCH” is whatever Roy Keane has had for Lunch that day. Initially the concept was a success, but the whole thing ended in a “BLOODBATH” the day Roy Keane walked in and ordered “LUNCH”

Eoin! You have “no” idea of the hours I’ve spent puzzling over quotation marks in odd places. My two favourite ones include:
- A notice that there’d be a “free” bus at the end of the Dunedin Marathon to take competitors back into town. Didn’t know if I needed to bring money along or not after all.
- A sign up for a “coffee” morning at the local Methodist Church. (You know what we really mean baby…)
@ Rachel – that would have caused a paradox that could have collapsed the universe (what film am I thinking of again?)
@ CF – Made it all the way to the 4:21 mark… But why was I watching that again?
@ Lisa – Come on. Which of us hasn’t at some point used the old, hey baby, wanna come back to my “Methodist Church” for “coffee” routine?
True! Let he who is without “sin” cast the first “stone” and all that…
You shoudld do a ‘miscellaneous amusing items I have come across’ Cork special. Two minutes out the door and you’ll have enough material to last you a year. Mad as a bag of frogs down here.
@ Dan Og – Send us in a few pictures sure!
