I know - they used to say it on Father Ted!!

Yes, if I recall, it was Father Jack's favorite phrase, drunk or otherwise.

I loved that programme.

Yes, wasn't it wonderful.
Don't want to sound going-one-better, but we saw Father Ted (Dermot...?) doing live stand-in in Dublin about 10 years ago. The thing I remember about his act was this amazing song about the Kennedy family,dedicated to Ted kennedy sung to the tune of an Irish jig, and it goes-
Oh your brother is dead and your father is dead
And your brother is dead and your mother is dead
And your sister is dead and your brother is dead
And your wife is a lush and you can't drive for s****
Apologies to all concerned, but we did laugh. I wonder if it originated in US?
Anybodyin US know if it?

He is sadly missed.

Wow! That's OK, my Massachusetts in laws & my family despise the Kennedys. For those who are interested, I will share stories about my father in law and Ted Kennedy.

Elucidate do, Mike. The Kennedy's had many enemies and like every powerful dynasty deserved some. I think the fact they were (are) Irish Catholic, or I should say Catholic and Irish, was one reason why they were despised by many of your ' Libertarian' countrymen.

Do tell about Ted K, Mike. Their myth of the perfect family is long exploded & there must be countless bean-spilling biographies, but I do like to hear the personal stories. Ted K is still around, must be quite old now?

What's this big thing with being Irish Catholic? Was Grace Kelly Irish Catholic?...I'm lost. Gins
