For those of you who aren't so sure who exactly Colm Tobin is, (shame on you) he is an Irish Times columnist, a published author, a television writer and producer, a musician and composer and general gas ticket. 

Not to mention absolute Twitter legend, for those of you au fait with that sort of thing. 

He's covered pretty much every topic, from new Angelus ideas to the World Cup with a sense of wit that would make even the most hungover of you weep with laughter. But the best part of all is that he keeps it real.

Here are 12 of the best times he absolutely hit the nail on the head.

1. When he pointed out that parenting isn't exactly a picnic

2. When he didn't faff around the fact that Sunday nights are in fact the worst 

3. And that Monday mornings are equally as shite

4. His take on Irish people at the beach

5. His sassy reference to the wealth divide

6. When he showed us that fighting the good fight can be dirty 

7. When he called out the eejits for all to judge

8. When he noticed how absurd most phrases are

9. That time he was a man of simple pleasures

10. When he pinpointed what mankind's biggest threat is

11. When he had his say on American politics

12. And finally, that time he was all of us all the time

It's like he's inside our minds. 

If you love this, you'll love Colm's hilarious take on being Irish, in his book Surviving Ireland, on sale now right here.
