    … if there was ever a real war I would be dead in the opening salvo so this is about the only chance I’ll have to get near one safely.

  2. Clodagh

    My Dad deserves to drive a WWII tank because he is a total military nerd and nothing would make him happier! And he’s awesome!

  3. Right you are

    Because like the friend of Edward ii from Braveheart, I’m skilled in the art of military tactics. Especially interested if the said tank is a T-34.

  4. Murtles

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because, even though the exhaust is gone on my ’95 Hyundai making it sound like a tank, the rusty blue bodywork doesn’t command the fear and authoritah that I require on my daily commutes.

  5. Jack Ascinine

    I deserve to drive a tank because I live with a battle ax, reside next door to Hitler (mother-in-law), and my subordinate children are constantly disobeying orders.

  6. Spaghetti Hoop

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because Hoops are only truly happy and snug encased in metal.

  7. Nessy

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because it’d be the closest I’d get to living out my childhood dream of re-enacting scenes from GTA whilst listening to loud obnoxious music and wrecking the N 81

  8. Mike Delta

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I get annoyed with ill-mannered cyclists who moan about pedestrians while in the act of breaking the law and driving a tank in the bike lane may shut them up for 15 min.

  9. MintyFresh

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I’m close to being legally blind and there’s a good chance I could end up driving it through the offices of Irish Water. And over the CEOs head.

  10. essex

    ‘I deserve to drive a WWII tank becauseI really, really want a pair of those muddy, sexy boots!’

  11. DNS

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I feel the need…….THE NEED to make up for other ‘inadequacies’ in my life

  12. Oggers

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I would love to attempt to shoot haribo into passersby gobs

  13. andyourpointiswhatexactly

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank as I would take it out into the middle of rush-hour traffic and cruise along at 5mph. Nobody would mess with me.

  14. shitferbrains

    I deserve to drive a WW11 tank because I would drive it through the gates of Leinster House and stage a failed coup.

  15. DazzaMazza

    Bacause
    1. I drive a car like a tank (Ranault megane). It eats petrol like a tank, costs the same to insure as a tank, makes the same noise as a tank and occasionally tanks.
    2. Because when I was a kid I had a fish bowl and never a tank.
    3. Im Irish so I say tanks all the time (which drives Gay Bryne mad)
    4. I go to church every week, they guy at the top says ‘let us give tanks’ and have I ever received one? Not even close.
    5. Even though Im a middle aged man with 2 kids and a family saloon, I wants my 100 nazi scalps!

  16. Flying Scotsman

    I deserve to drive a WWII because I’d like to re-enact the Snickers ad with Roy Keane as the footballer…”if I ever catch you acting like a crazy fool again you’re gonna meet my friend PAAAAAIN!”.

  17. Yohan

    “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because” … Im french and we never got to drive one at the time!

  18. Alfred E. Neumann

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I know Conor Pope’s bus route and it would be fun to pull alongside and pelt him with keyboards.

    (Give it to gallantman.)

  19. Mr T

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I know what to do when you reach over and put your hand into a pile of goo that was your best friend’s face! I’ve been there man, I’ve seen some things, man, and some stuff…

  20. Sparky

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because my last few Wicklow reg cars have had atleast 3 digits and i’d like to feel ‘exclusive’

  21. Blublu

    I deserve to drive a VWVII tank because I’m too young to remember the other 6 tanks Volkswagen made, but I’m sure my Dad who’s a military buff will know all about them…

  22. VforViennetta

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because then I would be full of thanks and a tank would be full of me.

  23. Scraib

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because while my car can be described as ‘punchy’ it never had the punch I desired like the ability to punch through walls, to punch a hole into a protected bunker or to punch a hole through the armour plate of my friend Fred’s tank. I don’t like Fred, he’s always been way too uppity about owning a tank, he’s all like: ‘Oh hey look at my tank!’ I also want to cure my road rage by driving a tank through Dublin traffic and feel the satisfaction brought by the waves of fear that emanate from the driver who beeps at me when he sees the gun turret slowly, inexorably rotating to point at his 2004 Nissan Micra to which he pathetically attached a spoiler.

  24. scottser

    i deserve to drive a ww2 tank because only i know that we have them in order not to use them.
    does it come with shells?

  25. edalicious

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because Kelly’s Heroes is one of my favourite films ever and I want to drive around shouting out all of Donald Sutherland’s quotes from the film.

    “Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?”

    My dad derserves to drive a military tank because his great uncle Robert Henderson joined the medical core of the British army and was killed in action aged 25 near Arras in France, where his body still lies. There is a headstone for him in the war cemetery in Cabaret-Rouge. All his poor mother received back were his medals. My dad has never had the opportunity to visit Arras or the headstone but has managed to trace war records online. Driving a tank might help him walk in his uncle’s shoes somewhat.

    Plus it’ll cheer him right up!

  27. Declan

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because after being informed I’m being let go next week, I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!

  28. Sadface

    ..because I live down the street from a Primary and Secondary School,and having a tank will make short work of them 4×4’s that stop in street, to drop off their childlike payloads, regardless of other traffic…

  29. Turd Ferguson

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I’m great. In fact, I think I should get to drive both of the tanks, in case one of them doesn’t work…

  30. Anakin

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I am from Israel and all the recent stuff in Gaza has me wanting to get in on the action

  31. Smashmouth

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because my ’98 Opel Corsa just doesn’t do it for me anymore

    even with the alloys and tinted windows

  32. Paul

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I don’t have a drivers license and it’d be hilarious if I mucked things up and demolished something without fully understanding why.

  33. Steve

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because the usual tank I ride on the back of, namely Sean “The Tullow Tank” O’Brien is out injured for the foreseeable future and subsequently any hope of Ireland destroying their Autumn International opponents is looking grim. This would redeem an otherwise grim November for me.

  34. Spaghetti Hoop

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to Meath.

  35. Pat Guckian

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because my favourite joke is about two fish in a tank. One fish says to the other fish “So hey, how do reckon we drive this thing?!?!”.

  36. MrGavoB

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because it will be my final piece of training for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse . Once the Zombies take over . I promise I’ll come and save you using my new tank driving skills.

  37. Jack

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because it’d be safer than getting the Luas home after a night out.

  38. Stuart

    ‘I deserve to drive a WWII tank because my WW1 tank broke down at the battle of the Somme and I wanted to fight in the battle of the Bulge

  39. andydufresne2012

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because . . . like the great Peter Ustinov once said when asked why he wanted to sign up for the tank regiment, “I prefer to go into battle sitting down.”

  40. DCo

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I’m a final year History student. With no prospects of a job next year, this experience would really add some practical skills to my lacklustre CV.

  41. Mr. P.

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I do a tankless job, to provide for a tankless wife, the mother of my tankless children, a drive in this tank would be a Howl(itzer)

  42. missred

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because all these plebs are commenting on me on the bus being mean about me and I want to mow them down with it. Also, I wish to rank it out of five stars in less than fifty words alongside Saddam Hussein’s old one from the Gulf War that a PR brand manager lent me for such an occasion as this.

  43. PaddyMacWack

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I only got to sit on top of an old T-34 in Kharkiv Ukraine that had all its guts taken out of it so it couldn’t be driven or fired :(

  44. Menace

    …..because the last one man ‘revolution’ only brought a sword so the chances of it happening with a tank increase exponentially!

  45. GoldCircle

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I cleaned up the mess that the 3 German soldier made… #hazmat

  46. Condor

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I spend all day on the WWW and could do with some excitement.

  47. TK Ickle

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I when I drive my bulldozer I sometimes pretend it’s a tank.
    Helps pass the time.
    Would be nice to actually drive a tank. If it’s not exciting, shure I can pretend I’m driving a bull dozer!

  48. Aaron Downes

    I deserve to drive a WWII tank because Willie O’Dea (despite being well armed I’m sure) might need a bit of help taking down Germany, or Irish water, or whatever they’re calling it these days.
