#BeingIrishMeans: 13 Tweets That Showcase The Odd Irish Obsession With Immersions



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.

This has literally never happened to anyone, ever, Keith

Nor this, Liv

This either, Bree

Oh great, the brands are getting involved!

Are you, Ken? Really?

Wait, I thought it meant *not* leaving the immersion on

Is that really the case, though, Majella?

This tweet is four years old, and it's still going; save us all

Ah well. At least this guy gets it
