    I think it’s disgusting that people are laughing at this autistic guy. Who actually watches these things?

        I assume 13000 of those are the same fake accounts that appear to support him on Broadsheet.

        Seriously Broadsheet, how about supporting actual Irish talent? You’re heading down the RTE canteen route with outsiders not accepted.

    That’s the first time iv watched one of his videos. Is it meant to funny. That was the biggest load of F#@ping poo iv seen on here. Who at BS is related to him? No other way he could get posted as much.

      They’re always posted by Bodger – he fills his evenings by donning a leather jacket and succeeding at being consistently unfunny.

      That repeated complaint is more annoying than LJG, imo. The whole ‘this is shite, he must be related to someone in BS, etc.’
      It seems to be the first reaction from people who haven’t seen this before. Like some kind of deep seeded primordial response that is present in all humans. I guess it can’t be helped.

        I dunno, that thought didn’t occur to me untill we were well into month 2 of this journey. All other concievable reasons had evaporated like LJG’s spittle on a glass by then

    RE: The whole ‘the Irish are impervious to psychoanalysis’ thing.
    Freud never said that about the Irish. A screenwriter called William Monahan made it up. For his script for The Departed.

      Yikes. Leather Jacket Guy real name Max Byrne’s fact checker is surely in for a rage-fuelled, drunken bottling when he finds out a gaffe of this size slipped through!

    Point number 3 in the video reminds me of the tragic extinct slave dogs known as the Vernapator Cur. Said breed of dog was used as a kitchen utensil:

    “The turnspit dog was once an essential part of every large kitchen in Britain. Bred to run in a wheel that turned a roasting spit, the small but strong dogs ensured that the meat cooked evenly.”

    Unfortunately, and rather brutally, these dogs became a victim of economics:

    In 1750 there were turnspits everywhere in Great Britain. But by 1850 they had become scarce, and by 1900 they had disappeared. The availability of cheap spit-turning machines, called clock jacks, brought about the demise of the turnspit dog.
    “It became a stigma of poverty to have a turnspit dog,” says author Bondeson. “They were ugly little dogs with a quite morose disposition, so nobody wanted to keep them as pets. The turnspit dogs became extinct.”

      Rory, You reward will be great in the next life. Turning this turgid nonsense into a learning experience doesn’t deserve 73 virgins, I don’t know what does.

      That’s genuinely fascinating.

      But I’m sure the last thing Deliveroo wants on these Leather Jacket Guy posts is a harrowing reminder of the brutality of restaurant work in years gone by.
