Today’s Irish Independent.
Thanks Aaron McAllorum
I approve,bout time someone else got on the ryanair topical advertising train
LYONS is no more Irish. UNILEVER. On another note, did anyone see the FAKE picture of the wine aisle Conor Pope posted on Twitter yesterday?
Just glanced at it. Now I’m intrigued. What’s fake about it?
It’s not fake, he thinks mentioning that it’s fake a lot will make people think it is.
No need to shout
I know the lassie that sent it to him, photo shopped in 2 people to make it look like we are a bunch of drunken fools puttering around Tesco for wine. Bad form.
Doesn’t look photoshopped to my untrained eye. Even if it was, it was hardly Conor’s bad form for passing it on. What did you want him to do? Go to Tesco to verify it?
Paging Zuppy International.
Zuppy International to the wine aisle please.
He can’t hear you with his tinfoil earmuffs on, you Zionist harlot.
He could have at least browsed over the snap before sharing it with thousands of people. Am i wrong?
No, just maybe…under a lot of stress at the moment.
But I’m using the Subliminatron!
Sounds like someone forgot to put the tea cosy on the pot this morning! Chill dude, let it wet.
Lyons isn’t Irish? You mean they don’t use tea grown on the great tea plantations of Mayo?
Ha. Nicely deployed.
Tea plantations? Eh they are called Poddy Fields.
Would this be the Lyons Tea that’s made in the UK?
Yes it would be. Barry’s was always nicer and it’s made in Cark, like.
U make a pot of tea but u don’t make tea leaves ….!
“Ah here, leave it out” belongs to our street vocabulary and colloquial discourse. A corporate multinational has no right to it! And the ad stinks.
Took the little fella to see Cinderella at ghe gaiety and “Ah Here leave it out!” was the big catch phrase……not being from Dublin it was all a bit confusing, does the phrase originate from the Youtube video of the 2 skangers getting pummellled on Talbot street by the Eurotrash Gym monkeys??
Yes, yes it does.
I would love to see the two of them have it out in some sort of wrestling match. Sumo, preferably
O’Leary has a face so smug no amount of kicking will rid him of it. Varadkar will lose. I put the odds at 17/1
Sumo’s just a lot of posturing leading up to a disappointingly brief slap fight. These guys do that every day.
You need to take them out of their comfort zone – put them in a cage with one broken wine bottle in the middle and tell them only one man gets out.
It’d certainly be worth it for the noises they’d make – O’Leary’s Machivellian level of cackling as he stands by even when Varadkar attempts many a slash with the above bottle. Varadkar will be growling like an indignant bulldog.
Gabriel Byrne gets to be the referee.
Just to make it interesting or grossly disgusting, pump amyl nitrate through the air con.
Lyons is the same as PG Tips these days.
Barrys Tea FTW!
thats like comparing dancing minstrels with smoking monkeys. besides, Barrys tea is jam packed with Fine Gael propeganda. I’ll drink it but i dont have to be happy about it (could be worse, we could be stuck with the anemic dipped in dishwater muck that is Liptons). Good tae is probably the only thing calming the nerves of the near riotous masses these dark days. dark like a proper strong cuppa.
aaaand… on goes the kettle.
Tae in Ireland contains flouride.
That’s good for keeping us calm.
No, no, no – flouride’s for tainting and impurifying our previous bodily fluids.
*Chemtrails* are for calming.
Somewhere in the corridors of Camp Broadsheet, Zuppy is kicking over a Coke machine and muttering about “Purity of essence.”
great! budget beater two for one deal – i’ll be sure to not bother with the toothpaste anymore and wash my teeth with it so. will give a lovely warm tabacco yellow hue of yesteryear to my gnashers.
Wait im confused? People are pissed that a foreign brand is advertising to irish people? No where in the ad do they claim to be irish either, they simply used an irish colloquial is that illegal too now?
Oh hai, reason! You’re late to the party but I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE
It’s sort of like the confusion, anger and disappointment that you felt as a child when you thought Michael J. Fox was American and then you discover he’s Canadian, but he’s still playing Americans…only madder.
He made up for it by directing the Blair Witch Project.
Ha! Cruel but good.
That’s horribly funny.
Ever seen their TV ads? Faith and begorrah from start to finish.
Neither Barry’s or Lyons (Irish people think that’s their only choice, poor little brand sheep).
Herbal teas for me.
its not nice to be tisane people over their choice of brew.
Paul, what have you done? Expect a terrible thread of tea puns before t’oolong.
Pu-erh – stinky puns
Wins by a Camo-mile.
Your a darjeeling man Hooper
Spag’s a woman, but don’t worry. We all make the odd lapsang.
Get over it Donnie
