8 Reasons Why Anyone Who Grew Up With The Morbegs Has An Advantage At Life


Love them or loathe them, you can’t deny that as an Irish child growing up in the 1990s, The Morbegs shaped your life.

And that even though the enormous, furry beings themselves were more than a little bit traumatising (What were they? Bears? Frogs? Avocados?), we loved them dearly, and they improved our lives infinitely.

Here’s why.

1. Because you now know how to throw a killer surprise birthday party 

Complete with a full class of Junior Infants and scary man dressed as an elf.

2. You know how to correctly and unashamedly identify as someone else 

In case you ever need to, you know, disappear for a while.

3. You know, deep inside, that there’s no right or wrong way to dance

Even if it is a glorified skip-and-arm-flailing combination.

4. You understand that real men wear pink

Pink skirts, at that.

5. And that you’re never, ever too old for The Zoo

Generation Bosco will understand this too, in fairness. 

6. You accept that you can still be #onfleek without any eyebrows at all

Ain’t nobody gonna hold you down.

Where Are They Now The Morbegs

7. And you fully get that it’s not about whether you win or lose…

It’s about sack races being totally fucking awful to begin with.

8. And just because you’re a bit of a shit painter…

…you could still end up landing the job of a lifetime, simply by prancing around in a furry onesie.
