FFS Grow Up

by duncanr

Today, March 17, is St Patrick’s Day and Irish folk and those of Irish descent around the world will be raising a glass or two (or more) to toast the patron saint of the Emerald Isle

The Irish, like the Scots, have a reputation for liking a drink and one entrepreneur seeking to capitalise on this is marketing t-shirts imprinted with an intoxication meter – the top end of the scale of drunkenness being ‘Irish’ (see pic)

The t-shirt is meant to be fun and the Irish I know would wear it with pride. For one man, however, -an american I presume – who’s ancestors several generations back were from Ireland, it is deeply offensive.

Nike Marketing Fail?

by duncanr

To celebrate St Patrick’s Day, some not so bright spark at Nike decided it would be a good ploy to introduce a limited edition of ‘Black and Tan’ trainers for the occasion.

The ‘Black and Tan’ is meant to be a reference to the alcoholic drink – Pale Ale and Guinness.

Anyone with a knowledge of Irish history, however, would have known that the ‘Black and Tans’ was a derogatory nickname for a “British paramilitary unit which committed atrocities on the Irish population following the First World War”

The Irish are not amused !
