  • Now that we can no longer afford petrol

    .....the Irish have thought of a good use for all those redundant pumps!

    Do you mean to say the pumps are now dispensing Murphy's Draught?

        Of course! ... which is why they always drove under the influence, over the limit and in good spirits.

          As they say, "one for the road!"

          If they adopted this in other countries just think what they'd be on pump:-

          Australia: Fosters

          England: Bitter

          Scotland: Malt whisky

          USA: Jack Daniels

          Russia: Vodka

          France: Champagne

          Mexico: Tequila

          Nobody would be driving very far, but who would want to and just think of the money we'd save on petrol!

              The price of petrol is enough to drive you to drink, providing of course you can afford to drive. No doubt, those two plonkers - Ben Doon and Phil McCavity - in the UK government will argue it's all in our best interests to walk to the pub or the new style Irish walk-ins for a drink whilst, in the mean-time, they continue to bank their salaries and live off the free perks and expenses. Wondering if Herbert FitzWilliam and William FitzHerbert are managing now that they have been bailed out... or is that the real reason for the new style pumps?
              It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

                You mean there any pubs still open? Three have closed near to us in the last eighteen months.

                  It reminds me of Ealing's Whiskey Galore...
