Bailout the Irish the easy way ...

It is a slow day in a damp little Irish town.

The rain is beating down and the streets are deserted.

Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich German tourist is driving through the town, stops at the local hotel and lays a €100 note on the desk, telling the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the €100 note and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmers' Co-op takes the €100 note and runs to pay his drinks bill at the pub.

The publican slips the money along to the local prostitute drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer him "services" on credit.

The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner with the €100 note.

The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich traveller will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the €100 note, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money and leaves town. No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now out of debt and looking to the future with a lot more optimism ......

    I think you may find this film interesting.

    Caveat: 2 hours in length, and may I suggest you do not watch before bedtime.

    Thankyou.

    Don't be so quick on the thanks.

    I got about 5 minutes in and had already encountered some of the most egregious non sequiturs I've ever come come across:

    After making a baby scared of a rabbits by associate rabbits with loud noises, the good Doctor Watson realises 'the driving force of society is not love, but fear'. :lol:

    I'm saying thanx after watching it ya twonk!
    I watched the other too.

    I sent an email to the makers of the films and got a reply within the hour ...

    Here's a copy of my email and their reply ...

    Me.
    Are there any copies of your otherwise very interesting films available without the fucking music?
    The dialouge has to compete with it ...oft times being drowned out by it.
    Most of the time it isn't even fucking really appropriate!
    Yes I find it fucking annoying and I'm betting this isn't the first time you heard this.
    Sack the fucking sound engineer already!

    Them.

    You may want to consider the idea that you're musically impotent, ie have no taste or sense when it comes to music.
    cheers.
