I would like to know who was the silly f**k*r that coined that phrase!!!
After invasion by a foreign state, the ethnic cleansing of the native Irish population (mainly Catholic) to allow Protestant settlers take their lands, 1 million dead at the "Great Famine", another 1 million emigrating to America to flee the hunger, bombs, Bloody Sunday, "The Troubles", etc., etc., etc.
What the f**k is lucky about that???
And now to top it all Ireland fail to qualify for the greatest sporting event of 2010, the soccer World Cup in South Africa due to an injustice. Seems par for the course.
Am I pissed Off? Too f**king right I am.
No wonder I suffer from depression.
Guess this video exemplifies how I feel.
