Dublin: 12 °C Tuesday 28 September, 2021

11 startling signs that we are losing the run of ourselves again

Some of us need to calm it down on the notions.

1. When good old fashioned cigarette machines in pubs only serve cigars

2. The very fact that Electric Picnic is already sold out – just a few days after the poxy tickets went on sale

How? Why? Where did all these super organised affluent people come from?

3. When the recent elections saw The Green Party pick up a couple of seats

5. The fact that you can now get salads that would have been unpronounceable a couple of years ago

6. When a simple little bottle of Fanta Orange will now cost you an arm and a leg

Imagine the national scandal if it was Club?

8. A place where coffee machines are now more entertaining than Netflix

9. Remember when a full Irish was the people’s breakfast?

No more.
