Um.

A Branflake shaped like Ireland is being sold for €112. The seller, who lives in Cornwall in England, is hoping to bag cash for the “amazing” food on eBay. Parts of Connacht and Ulster are not fully present.

I have a housemate who cuts his own hair (he’s a filmmaker). However he has taken to disposing of it by simply throwing it out his bedroom window which another housemate, to his horror, discovered when retrieving some kale from our back garden this week.

The initial confusion and outrage was quelled by its Ireland-like shape and some thorough rinsing.

I notice the catalogue page for the ‘Broadsheet Book of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland’ has been removed from the New Island website.

This would mean that you have finally sold out. Thankfully, it’s still available on Amazon.

Isn’t time for a second edition though??

Well?

Only YOU can decide.

Ireland’s real coast, mapped

Via Coast Monkey:

Our marine territory extends far beyond our coastline encompassing 880,000 km2 and this huge area is more than 10 times our land mass. The map above shows this enormous area.

This map was developed by a joint venture by the Geological Survey of Ireland and the Marine Institute, and it shows Ireland’s current designated Irish Continental Shelf, which is one of the largest seabed territories in Europe.

The continental shelf is the extension of a State’s territorial waters, where the natural land extends under the sea to the outer edge of the continental margin beyond 200 nautical miles from the coastline baseline.

Well, there goes plans for a second edition of the buke.

Damn you, Coast Monkey.
