Mangetout mangetout indeed

RTE knew where the entertainment was. Why show that before Munster hurling at a venue where the home county won't cooperate with you?
Great game dunno what game you were at from the yaps of you. Shocking decision from RTE to bypass it.

Watched it as live, very entertaining game and impressive stuff from Monaghan. Score flattered Tyrone tbh.

Pathetic shite. Fermanagh much superior with a well coached game plan (that did include a lot of diving & gamesmanship tbf). I wouldn't know where to start with Armagh. Once again we don't play our own game and tailor our game plan to try and match or out wit the opposition, anytime we do this we fail spectacularly. I don't think Grimley staying on would have made a huge difference either.

I've often thought we got a raw deal from refs but jaysus our tackling is shocking.  Rory Gallagher took McGeeney to school.

That's not the team I'm only after seeing on Facebook- it's worse.

It was a joke and pretty f**king harmless for a bunch of white Irish people on a GAA forum.

Go write a strongly worded letter to Sacha Baron Cohen or Seth McFarlane who've spent the best part of 15 years telling the same kind of jokes to the mass market.
I'm not familiar with Seth MacFarlane, but I would assume he is Jewish given his first name.

Sacha Baron Cohen can tell all the jokes about Jews that he likes, because he is one.

The thing is, his humour is designed to not only to laugh at his own historically oppressed ethnic group, which is he is entitled to do by virtue of being a member of that group, but to ridicule anti-semitism and anti-semites. And you clearly don't even get that.

Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman can tell jokes about Jews and rape jokes, because they are both Jewish and women, and thus can use dark, confrontational humour to challenge and ridicule anti-semitism and misogynism.

A Muslim comedian gets to make jokes about Muslims. A disabled comedian gets to tell jokes about disabled people.

It's very clear you fail to understand the difference betwen that type of humour, and, say, Bernard Manning. Or Kevin Myers. Or Ron Atkinson.

Or this.

Sid, if you heard such a joke from a comedian you're not familiar with, would you need to check his religious and ethnical background so you could accurately weigh up whether the joke is funny or offensive, before deciding whether to laugh heartily or write a thesis about racism in comedy?
Excellent point and shows up the absurdity of some of the positions here. Funny is funny end of - Dougal's original joke here that sprouted this bleeting match was just shit tho.

Smile will be on the other side of Eurovision's face tomorrow when they discover every telephone vote cast for Israel reversed the charges

Really? A jews are tight with money joke?
Yes. A bit of light humour. Have you some point to make?

Yes. It was a joke in poor taste that reinforces old antisemitic tropes.

That sort of thing is ok around here though.

Shi#te, thats me in trouble then. Told a similar joke at work last week but it was a scottish person instead.
         Come to think of it, someone else was slagging off Cavan(sorry anyone from Cavan on here) people for being tight during another discussion. I shall be reporting him first thing tomorrow.

I forgot how much that stereotype has been used as an excuse to systematically persecute over the centuries. Thanks for reminding me.
Probably a bit ironic that your strapline reads "Never mind your why. Why ain't in your repetoire no more n***a" while making that point about persecution.

I'm not sure you understand what irony means.

Most emotive threads tend to descend into embarrassing nonsense at some point. Some posters who think they're poster boys for modern Liberalism are the most fascistic in outlook on the board.

Having the tenacity and endurance to outlast fellow posters in a discussion doesn't mean you're right or you've won.

I've stuck to various fixed rate deals this past decade as rate rises were always seemingly just around the corner, have been thinking lately how much could I have saved by sticking with non fixed rate deals.
