7 people who are weirdly miffed about the Rose of Tralee

Some people are never happy.


Screen grab via RTÉ

LAST NIGHT, TEXAS Rose Haley O’Sullivan was handed her tiara (and her giant box of knives and forks) as the 2013 Rose of Tralee.

Naturally, some people were unhappy. And thus, we turn to the conspiracy theorists.

Here’s what they’re saying. Honestly, can we not all just have a little fun any more?

1. It’s something to do with the Troika!


2. It’s all for the oil!


3. Blondes are being robbed!


4. The Newbridge knives and forks are pre-engraved!


5. The escorts competition is rigged too!


6. Ireland is trying to bribe its way to a win, but somehow being prevented!


7. The Americans are actually trying, dammit!
