AH, IS THERE anything more beautiful and evocative than the phrase “big bag of cans”?
It instantly conjures up memories of baking in the sun and drinking cheap lager that tastes like a penny that laid undiscovered in the back of a pair of jeans. Fine, fine memories.
With Ireland currently in the midst of a heatwave (read: sustained sunshine with no rain), what better time to honour the Bag Of Cans™?
Because nothing says “It’s summer and the Leaving Cert is coming up” like a big bag of cans.
It’s in the dictionary.
It’s the highlight of every sunny day.
Of course, sunshine isn’t a prerequisite for a big bang of cans…
But it helps if you’re looking for a “pleasant experience”
Bag Of Cans are so beloved that they’ve now reached meme status.
Just look at this selection of tweets from Humans of the Sesh:
A thing of beauty.
The phrase just trips off the tongue. Look at how easily it slides into Galway Girl…
