Tripping Along The Ledge


They’re calling it Ireland’s Mount Rushmore. Honest.

Window display in Counter Propaganda, South King St. entitled “The Wealth of a Nation is its People.” The creators are speaking figuratively, I hope. Right now, I’m worth about 25p! (P.S. With thanks to Counter Propaganda for flattering me absurdly and to Rosemary MacCabe for spotting this and sending me the photo.)

    I’d be dead chuffed if I were you.

    From Pedants Anonymous: I hope it said “The Wealth of a Nation is its People.” and not “The Wealth of a Nation is it’s People.”

    Brian O’Driscoll, Eoin Butler, Bob Geldof – spot the odd one out.

    Answers on a postcard to PO Box 1057.

    Answer: Bob Geldof is no good at rugby.

    Have you shown this to your Mam yet?

  5. Eoin Says:

    @ M Collins – A true pedant would have spotted that the names of Sinead O’Connor and Vincent Browne are also misspelt. Stick with it though, I’m sure you’ll get better.

    @ Paddy – Not yet, I’ll be sure to reference it next time she tries to tell me what time to come home from the pub at.

  6. Paddy Says:

    Don’t tell me what to do, I’m the wealth of this nation so I am! Should be a great Christmas alright.

    I notice they have Larry Mullen Jr, Adam Clayton and the Edge but no Bono. Please tell me he’s not up near the top somewhere. I would absolutely love it if he was left out.

    An exquisite ‘go fuck yourself Bono’

    That pair of legs on the left are my legs. This is truly a proud moment for me.

    Fair play Eoin, you’ll be taking away an EoinButler.com tie and blazer combination pack!

  11. Eoin B Says:

    Heh, someone’s going to be looking sharp at the Christmas party this weekend!

  12. Eoin Says:

    Plus we have the same initials, so your colleagues will think it’s your own personalised tie and blazer combination pack. Shwittt-shwooo.

    why is the guy who drove a truck into the dail mentioned, he did nothing spectacular, he was just a failed business developer in debt of 3.5 million. If he’d been successful at his job, he’d be hated like the rest of them.

  14. Eoin Says:

    Wasn’t the same guy caught with a crane outside the Dail yesterday?
