Made In Ireland
When someone says Ireland to you, what comes to mind? Triple Distilled Irish whiskey? Sure. Four-leaf clovers? Sure. Bare-knuckle boxing? Maybe. But what about cars?
One of the most loved, well-known cars on the planet was lovingly built in Ireland. Think about that for a second. The United States is famous for open roads and the Mustang. Germany's got the Autobahn and BMW. Italy's busting at the seams with all manner of supercar like Ferrari and Lamborghini.
And Ireland has the DeLorean.
2012 will see Toronto's 25th St. Patrick's Day parade and if the weather holds there will be 10 gorgeous stainless steel cars smack in the middle. We'll be cruising, doors up, in front of the 300,000 spectators.
In preparation for the parade, I have begun construction of the banner that will adorn my windshield. I purchased green and white Bristol board (sorry! English, I know) at the Dollar store for 50 cents. The lettering I'm cutting will spell out: MADE IN IRELAND. And if that doesn't attract enough attention, I've also acquired a jaunty little green top hat to add some flair to my dull personality.
So if I've disrespected you with my rotten rants and half-witted insults and you'd like to fight it out like an Irishman, I'll be cruising down Yonge St. Sunday, March 11. In fact, here's the parade route, so you can thoroughly plan your attack. After you beat the snot out of me, just do me a favour and buy me a Redbreast 12 and I'm sure we'll be fast friends.
