So Ya Need Subtitles Ta Understand Us When We Speak

This is a special post for those of you who couldn't understand Tommy Tiernan because the accent was so feckin' thick.  Or maybe ya didn't get the jokes because they were particularly Irish. Here's another video ya won't understand, because his accents still Irish and the topic is about something happening in Ireland. I hope you don't get it.



Now I'm not being snarky here, I'm bein' Irish, there's a difference. My country is going through an economic crisis that surpasses the one we experienced in the 60's and I know unless you're from Ireland, you're not aware of this. So scratch yer heads for awhile and eventually I'll write a post explaining it to you.

  1. I read the beginning of this post asas:

    This is a post for D4

    Actually, I understood this one more. I think I start focusing extra hard when he gets excited. And I DID get the joke, because like he said.. the whole damn world owes money. I laughed.

    I'm also realizing what you did there. I see it.

  4. @D4 no it wasn't aimed at you. I had a few Americans show up who couldn't get it either. I was kidding all of you. I'm not mean, I'm just Irish hahaha. I have a big Irish and UK readership and they're laughing right now.

    @Angry I thought you'd like it. Funny, but I don't even hear an accent.

  7. Aha! See? I knew there was/is an economic crisis and that it is bad, very bad, etc.

    But I get what you mean about Irish humor because there are certain movies and shows that I find funny because the humor is NY humor and sometimes my husband will be sitting there cluelessly wondering why I'm laughing at all let alone laughing so hard there are tears running down my face.

  14. @D4 I'm glad you didn't it was meant as a joke. I'm glad you laughed.

  16. Black folks don't know what to do with money either. All these rappers and actors are thinking "We'll show white folks we're just as good as they are." Next thing you know you seem 'em with 8 cars and 3 houses. They're walking around wearing fur coats on a yacht in Miami and not paying their baby mamas back child support. See 'em 5 years later and they ain't got shit. They sure did enjoy those "good times".

  20. @Conan, when asked why he used the word fuck so much Tiernan responded with "The English language is a barrier and fuck is me chisel" Yanks and Limey's what are ya gonna do?

    @Pat, actually it's funny you say that. My daughter's friends here in the States plan on telling everyone their Canadian so no one hates them. They're practicing saying 'eh in every sentence hahaha
