Rolling thread for when the Brits are at it again

It’s pretty common for a person’s accent to change or be more pronounced when they’re drunk, I think. I’m told I’m much more Northern after a few pints.

I used to know someone who was born in Manchester but his parents were from Donegal. When he was steaming it was like sitting across the table from Pat Bonner.

She is a retired University professor - known as a totally demented ultra-yoon in indy supporting circles. That comment is actually pretty mild for her, if you’ve the stomach look through her timeline for diatribes a plenty. Best ignored.

Wonderful things are happening in England.

People will meet me and say something like ‘I detect an IRISH :open_mouth: accent???’
and I reply ‘Yes! I am from near Belfast’
and you see the blood drain from their face and their bottom lip quivers as they very quickly change topic

Not “at it” as such, but I saw this card in Waterstones and wondered if they sold it in their Irish branches

Works either way tbh

This thread is as good as any other place for this.

One of the quiz questions in our xmas team meeting today was:

What do the royal family not have on their xmas tree?

I wasn’t given a point for saying “an Irish flag”. Which is clearly unfair.

Apparently the correct answer that’s worthy of a point is that unlike standard tradition in most British households, they don’t have a star or angel on top of the tree.

The answers to this are almost endless.

  • A photograph of Paul Ross?
  • A stuffed llama?
  • A bicycle light?
  • Fulham FC?
  • The Boomerang Nebula?
