    Haha... I guess I'll take that to mean the better players are from the Ireland that you're not from.

    ...anyway, I best not go offending soccer or its teams. I believe that may be a form of blasphemy in Europe.

    [sarcasm]And for those who want lessons, here is a tutorial on how to be sarcastic.[/sarcasm]

    Actually, I wasn't being sarcastic in putting that. Maybe using the sarcasm tags was the sarcasm?!?!?!???!!(!)

    Possibly. Depends who you ask.

    Ireland aren't great at it, either of them, heh. Sounds a weird way of putting it. FIFA rank us as 43rd, while N.Ireland are 58th. I don't really follow soccer all that much. Once every four years I watch a lot more matches than normal. I'm a rugby guy really. And Ireland aren't half bad at that, perhaps the clubs more than the international team (where we're ranked 5th (higher than the UK apparently ), but there we go.

    Hey, Angoid, did you get that from my ... erm ... plural link? I was just reading it!

    >> Angoid... you're clearly at a level above and beyond us...
    Lets look into the psyche of Sarcasm. Why do we need it? Does it do us any benefit? Who invented it?

    It's clearly and expression of my concealed anger and cynicism.

    Twomers, I did get that from your link but of course I'm also wondering who can translate the Irish in my sig without using Google and cite where it comes from

    I know I saw someone post, "Here's your sign" the other day in a different thread, but this form of sarcasm amuses me no end ..... when someone says something stupid, here's what you do.

    Someone who went to an Irish Speaking National School, where they learnt History, Irish, Maths, Geography, RE, PE and Drama through the dead language, and before he left school could speak it fluently, and since then hasn't spoken it. Sigh. I don't see the point in learning a language which is of no use. ... Honest, I'm not bitter ... ...

    Google do Irish translations these days??

    I'm here for you!

    It's like Seinfeld... very little going on, yet you can't take your eyes away.

    Ahhhh, thanks. But I wasn't sarcastic on any of my posts.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
