Fun Facts about Limerick, Ireland

Limerick is called Stab City because criminals there have to resort to using knives as guns are not as readily available as they are here in the U.S.

Limerick has nothing to do with the 5-line poems of the same name.

In Limerick, they have professional darts on TV EVERY NIGHT!

The Gaelic translation of 'Arnold Schwarzeneggar' is 'Arnold Schwarzeneggar'.

Between April 15 1919 and April 27 1919 the city faced a not unsuccessful period of self-rule which was called the Limerick Soviet.

There are a lot of Polish immigrants in Limerick, who do not like the local food.

Guiness does in fact taste different in Limerick.

I am told Budweiser also tastes different in Limerick, but I did not try to verify this.

People in Limerick are very polite, and don't go on about what a moron George Bush is until you first signal to them that you think George Bush is a fucking moron.

More later!

Are you some kind of dumb american? We are not as sophisticated as dumb black american youths and shoot each other? We watch darts on tv every night? What are you on about? God americans are so stupid and ignorant of the rest of the world. No wonder nobody likes ye.

So ignornat! I have yet to see a single game of darts on TV - anywhere in Ireland. Surely you could have penned mosre acurate, intelligent and meaningful "words of advice" than this?

Mr. Ignornat:

I don't know what to tell you. If you haven't seen darts on TV you're really missing out. Better luck with the TV watching in the future.
