    I'll tell Swampy the same thing I told my son. We witnessed the same sad spectacle all night long. Attractive young women with adorable accents and dressed to impress, utterly starved for male attention all night long. Set some pennies aside and come to Ireland. A straight virile...and single...American boy with an actual pair of.huevos could clean up here.

    While you're recovering from jet lag, see if you can find some Asterix comics:


    Asterix or The Adventures of Asterix (French: Astérix or Astérix le Gaulois, IPA: [asteʁiks lə ɡolwa]) is a series of French comics. The series first appeared in the Franco-Belgian comics magazine Pilote on 29 October 1959. It was written by René Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Uderzo until the death of Goscinny in 1977. Uderzo then took over the writing until 2009, when he sold the rights to publishing company Hachette. In 2013, a new team consisting of Jean-Yves Ferri (script) and Didier Conrad (artwork) took over. As of 2017, 37 volumes have been released.

    The series follows the adventures of a village of indomitable Gauls as they resist Roman occupation in 50 BC. They do so by means of a magic potion brewed by their druid Panoramix, named Getafix in the English translations, which temporarily gives the recipient superhuman strength. The protagonists, the title character Asterix, along with his friend Obelix have various adventures. The "ix" ending of both names (as well as all the other pseudo-Gaulish "ix" names in the series) alludes to the "rix" suffix (meaning "king") present in the names of many real Gaulish chieftains such as Vercingetorix, Orgetorix and Dumnorix (See below for further explanations of the character names). Many of the stories have them travel to foreign countries, though others are set in and around their village. For much of the history of the series (Volumes 4 through 29), settings in Gaul and abroad alternated, with even-numbered volumes set abroad and odd-numbered volumes set in Gaul, mostly in the village.

    The Asterix series is one of the most popular Franco-Belgian comics in the world, with the series being translated into over 100 languages.[1]

    Yeah, it's the Gauls, but what the hell. You're tired as hell, so nothing really matters until tomorrow.

    Barkeep: "That'd be Guiness then."

    Local next to me: "Give us 2 pints o' Coors."

    Me: "WTF?"
    LOL ... You can drink a lot more Coors than Guiness.

    Can you find Harp?

    It's a very female-centric culture. That's why "we're" always spoiling for a fight. --- LOL

    Irish women are fierce.

    They might have the lads cowed ...
