Ya know the world is not right when Irish politicians are resigning on the grounds of principle...without any video or audio evidence...when the Greens are the ones who are caught out being unlawful...when Tiger Woods is pretending to be human and is saying sorry to everyone but the scores of mistresses...when Willie O’Dea is giving out about people kicking a man when he is down. Ya know the world is not right when Mayo beat Galway...twice...in a row...without even trying. Ya know the world isn’t right when the Galway footballers are dying their hair blond...and they not even knowing Michael Jackson. Ya know the world isn’t right when hurling fans in Tipperary hand the GAA €150,000 on a snowy Saturday night, be tormented for an hour or so, and then head off home into the night without seeing any hurling or without getting any of the cash back. Twice. Will we get a receipt? Will we f... ya know the world isn’t right when Galway club hurlers have to go to the High Court to get a victory...Ya know the world is not right when ya realise how long it took for Cheryl to realise that Ashley is a twat. And we all knowing that for years. Honest. Ya know the world is not right when ya realise that it’s costing the Guards €10,000 to police rag week in Galway and leave a state of the art policing buggy in the Square to do the job when criminals are shooting each other across the country... Why don’t they just give the money to charity and tell all the students to stay at home...ya know the world isn’t right when despite all the policing, rag week students behave themselves...ya know the world isn’t right when Enda Kenny is trying to find himself and then be that person...and then finding out that that person is a cross combining Roy Keane, Ena Sharples and Arnold Schwarzenegger...ya know the world isn’t right when Jedward tickets sell out in 15 minutes which is probably 12 minutes more than the material they have...ya know the world is not right when the last connection with Wanderly Wagon goes to his eternal reward and when the first person you meet (on ‘Judge’ment day ) in the afterlife is Bosco...ya know the world is not right when ya hear that an unelected Green can tweet us all into distraction...when the Bishops are asking us for their forgiveness...when Thalimidomide survivors can’t even get a grant to help lock their homes while a directly elected mayor will have a staff of 30...ya know the world is not right when Ronan O’Gara writes to newspapers to complain about them complaining about him...ya know the world is not right when the Irish bobsleigh team don’t come last in the Winter Olympics and when Irishman Mikey Graham is still in the running to win Skating on Ice...ya know the world isn’t right when Michael O’Leary comes over all patriotic and caring...So how could we be anyway but the way we are?
