      Still, you get to live in a house that SPEAKS! And, EVEN BETTER, English!

      Whatcha thinking about?
      Bricks.

      You know, stuff like that.

        Oh jesus, imagine the horror of a talking house…
        “look at you staying up to watch porn when you’re supposed to be following her up to bed after Match of the Day, ya durty little fecker ya…”

          Or to me in my early DIY days…”that shelf won’t stay up on me with them crappy screws”

        I don’t know if people who speak Spanish necessarily count as a different race.

        Maybe it’s xenophobia but the ad doesn’t say that they don’t want Portuguese or Spanish people in the country or don’t want them to exist or anything, they just don’t want to live with them.

        It’s a prejudiced sentiment for sure but, so what?

          It’s a Friday afternoon. Roll with it.
          We need some levity after the past few days.

    I dont get the rage, they could easily be foreigners themselves that are looking to improve their English- if you were here to learn English why would you want to live in a house with people speaking your native tongue?

    It’s almost like you want them to be like the Paddy’s in Yonkers or in Oz who just hang out with other Irish people all the time.

      There is no rage, Christopher, (sorry to disappoint) – and no they aren’t foreigners seeking to improve their English. Same ol’

    he was probably after having a bunch of Spanish students on his bus when he wrote that

  3. edalicious

    The other option was probably to ask for only hot young spanish or portuguese speaking women so maybe the above was a reasonable compromise?

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      edalicious that was the ONLY sane and sensible option. WTF is wrong with de young lads today?

          Jesús, you’re such an Ángel for saying that, I’ll never let a Diego by without thinking of it :)

            You never know when to leave well enough alone.
            Another quality I admire.
            Heh.

    Bunk bed – space is limited. No need to bring your own ‘crying chair’, one is supplied.

  5. sparkilicious

    The ad might as well say no South Americans. ”Tis obviously discriminatory but is indicative of just how many of them there are in Dublin these days.

  6. Carlos Strange

    It’s like a modern, crap, update of Friel’s Translations or summat, innit?

  7. Turgenev

    Pretty disgusting for two reasons: 1) a bunk bed in a shared room with strangers; 2) iggerant people not wanting foreigners.

    And stupid; a chance to learn a language passed up. We’re going to desperately need European languages pronto as little England hoists its sails and sails bravely into poverty and exclusion. We need to get our monolingual thumbs out of our trous de culs. Unverzüglich.
