Today's Countdown just delivered the perfect Irish insult

You’re such an effing tinycraic.


Today was one of those days, with a low level yet devastating slag in the form of the anagram ‘TINYCRAIC’.

Suggested use:

- “Who’s coming out tonight”

-  ”Siobhán, Lorraine… oh and that lad she’s been seeing. He’s an absolute tinycraic”

- “Oh him! He’d put years on you”

etc etc

“Tinycracuum” might also work, if you’re looking to be particularly cutting.

It was an extremely Irish episode of Countdown, all told.

‘Bothar’ got a run out too.

Thanks Nadine/@badmoodring 

 Countdown made an absolute hames of pronouncing the word ‘sliotar’ 

All Irish people will get an immature chuckle out of this Countdown Conundrum
