Ramp It Up!
He tweeted from space. That’s awesome. He tweeted from space IN IRISH? Holy fuck, we’re impressed. Nearly makes us want to actually learn some. Commander Hadfield for Taoiseach! He certainly makes us feel better about ourselves than that Enda buachaill. (@Cmdr_Hadfield)
Despite his being a dog exempting him from paperwork, PC Peach was ordered by the Crown Prosecution Service on numerous occasions to file a witness statement after an arrest. So eventually he rolled up his hairy sleeves, said a big ‘grrrr!’ to excuses, and sent them what they’d asked for. PC Peach for Taoiseach!

It’s clear to most people that Taylor was talking out his stupide derrière, but we’re choosing to believe him. French people for Taoiseach! They certainly make us feel better about ourselves than that Enda imbecile.
Stamp It Down!

The tweet above has since been deleted, explaining how fugly it looks in our embed. Let this be a lesson to you, kids. Screencap everything.
The Booker Prize behemoth delivered a feminist deconstruction of Kate Middleton’s royal role. Tabloids gleefully took quotes out of context to manufacture a catfight to sell papers. Gobshites jumped on the bandwagon, bawled out a perplexed Mantel, and make arses out of half the British nation. You guys! You created the English language! Now learn to READ IT.
