Re: funny or offensive?!

Funny,

I'm Irish and the best thing about this is not taking yourself too seriously.

I'd wear it no problem.

I do not think it is funny, not because it is directed at Irish but it is simply not funny to me. We do need to take things less seriously these days and yes laugh at ourselves. Anyway this Irishman..................

Re: funny or offensive?!

To be honest, I have seen far worse things on t-shirts that are truly offensive.

ohh--I have a plethora of examples down this road.

But yeah, I don't think I've personally been offended by a T-shirt before. But as a typical Canadian, it is fairly tough to offend me.


edit: for those who are interested this is a very amusing place to get your inappropriate laughs out

Funny. I can't stand the PC brigade.

But I do concede that some may find this T-shirt offensive.

I find that really offensive. You've made me click a link that produces a "404 page not found" error message. If there's one thing I find offensive it's people making me waste my time

If only I'd been clever enough actually to set it up that way ...

Well sleuthed, Tom. As you see, that's not an image one would want on a wholesome family forum like EF.

I guess you'd need to access that image from a non-work computer to get around the censor, Slaphead. Or maybe this link will work. (Still NSFW.)

Considering it is less about actually BEING Irish than about all the people who use St. Patrick's Day to get drunk off their tails (while claiming to be "Irish for a Day" and similar), it's not offensive to me.

Not particularly funny, but not offensive either.

Thanks, I've ordered one. After all, it's machine-washable

Re: funny or offensive?!

Clearly I am now middle-aged. I am not juvenile enough to find the t-shirt funny, nor geriatric enough to be shocked by it
