These irate Amazon reviews for 'Irish accent mouth spray' are the best thing you'll read today

“This product is a lie!”

IRISH ACCENTS ARE the envy of people the world over.

Everyone wishes they sounded like us.

“Don’t you wish you sounded ridey like us?” – us to every other nationality

Anyway, it was only a matter of time before somebody exploited the world’s jealousy and attempted to bottle Irish accents.

Presenting Instant Irish Accent Mouth Spray.


As you can see, the product claims to activate “invisible language receptors in the mouth” and give the user an Irish accent.

The product retails for $6.46 on Amazon.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense should be able to deduce that it isn’t entirely legit. Even if you are a little gullible, the product’s description does clearly state that it is a gag gift.

Please note that this is a novelty item and will not actually make you talk like an Irishman.

But if you thought that would eliminate the potential for any misunderstandings, you were dead wrong.

While most of the reviews on Amazon are positive, there is a cohort of very angry people who feel that they were DUPED by the breath spray and have penned some pretty indignant reviews.

In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we present a selection of our favourites.
