What ever happened to “Sticks and stones...”
LOL. Probably said already but, “Don’t steal me Lucky Charms!”
My Irish ancestors are turning in their graves over what Ireland has become.
Was the guy short?
The court did state that the boyfriend had to be available in court and advised that the bailiff would keep his pot of gold safe while he testified.
God sent potatoes to save the Irish.
God sent the potato famine to save America.
/this is where are, now
So if I was to say we Italians don’t mind you leprechaun looking, potato eating, boozing, fighting, ornery, cantankerous, four leaf clover, pot of gold micks, would I get fined?
Are insults illegal?
I've got some 6th grade classmates that could be in big trouble!
So when will Irish Lives Matter demand they stop selling “Lucky Charms” Cereal.
I will be the first to say it. Who cares what homos call each other?!
Probably some BLM hack will link the cereal to “white supremacy” . . .
This is an interesting case study in deliberately fake news:
Man ends up in court for calling exs Irish boyfriend a leprechaun
Sub headline (true):
An Aberdeen man has been fined after branding his ex
partners new boyfriend a leprechaun in a threatening email.
I suppose this article started life with the sub headline as the headline, but that didn’t get enough clicks so they changed it to the current false headline.
If I call you a wuss and then shoot you, yes I may end up in court “after” calling you a wuss, but not “for” calling you a wuss.
phew- i thought it was something serious, like ‘dirty little leprechaun’
Oh. My. God!!!!!
“...branding his ex partners new boyfriend a leprechaun in a threatening email.”
Unspeakable, I tell you. Words fail.
Thanks for that.

I think it was threatening to assault the Irish guy that got him in trouble. Still funny as heck.
