Brendan O’Connor’s Cutting Edge on RTÉ 1.
Melanie O’Connor writes:
Frankie Gaffney puts the Dublin Dialect on the Cutting Edge slab. He explain why ‘yizzer’, ‘yous’ and more are grammatically correct and why our way of speak shouldn’t change..
Very eloquent that lad, he put forward that topic for discussion brilliantly
+1. Eloquence is never betrayed by an accent.
Who is this supposed to offend? Winston Churchill’s reanimated corpse?
In other news, lil Frankie is going to be giving a talk about how all the mean women are so mean to men
Is there any happiness in your life? At all?
So much bitterness and at such a young age.
I mean, annoying bitter manbabies like yourself makes me pretty happy. Thanks for your hysterical response. :)
Everyone who comments on your logorrhoea is bitter, rightwing and hysterical. Someone asked this before – are you really like this in real life?
Everyone? Just the bitter, right wing ones. Lighten up, dear.
Utterly untalktoable, and I agree with him/her on like 90% of things.
Aw, say it ain’t so, Ahjayzis. If I blamed traveller culture for a fire that wiped out several traveller families like you did, can we be friends again?
Jeez… you’re one nasty unhappy person. Drop the social media thing, it isn’t for you.
I thought this event was a parody when I saw it last night as I didn’t recognise any of the names that were speaking, until I saw his. Urgh.
Urgh? So easily offended! Don’t go. There’s plenty of conferences/courses/hashtags for women who dislike men!
Well don’t go to it then?
My God, the responses to this are amazing. MRAs are sooooooo sensitive.
The responses were all bland run of the mill.
This tho, your reaction to those responses, is like some hyper sensitive narcissistic kidult …
” I mean, annoying bitter manbabies like yourself makes me pretty happy. Thanks for your hysterical response. :) “
Lol and they keep going
you’re right of course. getting beaten and slandered and stabbed and legally victimized should be a thing men just accept, if they’re proper men, and complaining about it is a sign of sensitivity.
“getting beaten and slandered and stabbed and legally victimized”
By other men, and not because they’re men. It’s just middle class lads looking to be victims because it makes them feel special.
is there any traits of masculinity which aren’t deemed to be toxic?
Which masculine traits are deemed toxic?
Your ‘way of speak’ should change.
Good point, well made.
I enjoyed that
Don’t Change? Not sure he has much to worry about, good luck trying to get a Dub to change their accent ha…
unless you’re Norah Casey!
Norah Casey reminds me of someone famous. Who is it??
oh God you’re right!
sur I’ve bin telling ye this for years
Here Fluff, did you sort that thing
Here Frilly genuine question. When you write ‘sur’ you mean ‘sir’ right? Or do you mean ‘sure’ and would that not be spelled ‘shur’?
you have me there
I’ll have to take on now
This dork, who went on TV to talk about how proud he is of his accent, whines about “identity politics” when women talk about *their* issues.
Yoursiziz is my favourite.
“Those are all yourziziz”
Enjoyed that too :)
lets see ye ate inta’ him now the way ye’ve battered me for the same carry on
lets have ye
It’s different listening to it then reading it, Frillzers. I’m sure you’re a delight to listen to. Melodious, mellifluous etc etc.
A legacy of when we spoke Irish! That and “giving out” and many more. Long may they last.
“My dad is habitually in the pub.”
there, what’s wrong with that.
Eamonn Mac Thomais’ books are great for more of this Dublinese, if a little corny. “Yer dinner’s poured out!”
Sorry, ‘bukes’, I meant to say.
What’s wrong with saying thank you?
I didn’t say there was anything wrong with it.
I may even do it myself but it’s been so long I can’t remember.
