#BeingIrishMeans: 13 Tweets That Showcase The Odd Irish Obsession With Immersions
MAKE IT STOP
The #BeingIrishMeans hashtag has kept Twitter hopping over the last 24 hours, with a mixture of shrewd observations, withering cynicism and – most of all – an assortment of recycled jokes from a 15-year-old Tommy Tiernan routine.
And immersions. So, so many mentions of immersions.
As a nation, we seem to have an odd fixation on these machines, despite the fact that you NEVER hear people talk about them unless there's some discussion about paddywhackery going on.
God help us all.
