11 times the Irish in Canada were absolute heroes

Ooooh Canadaaa.


And it’s as good a time as any to appreciate the Irish people’s contribution to the national craic levels over there on a daily basis. Like:

1. When this guy was so sick of getting slagged for his pronunciation of the number 3, he made this Christmas tree

2. That time Guinness got the Shamrock wrong on their ads in Toronto and all the Irish got them to change it

3. When they were quick to highlight the inappropriateness of this road marking

Heroically standing up for Irish slang while creasing themselves laughing.

4. When Mattress Mick turned up on breakfast telly to promote his documentary in Toronto

Bow down to the mattress.

5. When they pointed out that this supermarket aisle in Toronto was losing the run of itself
