Definitely most famous for the Montauk Monster.

So did you take her last name? I mean if you're gonna have kids it makes more sense since it's easier to know if they're her kids than if they're your kids.

I never even heard the term island monkey for Irish people but potato monkey is funnier. Imho

Crazy what water and body deterioration can do - it was a raccoon if memory serves, but boy, does that corpse elude obvious identification. Similar case to all those globsters that have washed up throughout history, usually big fat pieces of putrefying whale carcass that get misidentified or misreported as some unidentified sea monster.

Also, congrats on your marriage! Glad to hear things went well! I'm happy for ya!

I've heard island monkey as a slur against the English but not the Irish.

Neither have I, and yes it is. And it makes more sense.

I've never heard it at all, nor I think has anyone else, which is why Marie thought I was being racist, as generally you think of island as being you know, out in the Caribbean or somewhere like that.

I wonder what the best and most appropriate slur for us would be? Paddies and Micks is fine. I've heard muck savages, but that only applies to those outside Dublin, and usually way down in the south or over in the west. Also culchie, and no I don't know where it comes from. Other than that I don't know. Potato muncher? Lizzy I called us "that barbarous country" but that's hardly a slur really; we've a lot of barbers in Ireland. And Barbaras too.

Yep, hearing music in a small venue has its own special intensity.

Glad to see that you don't sound too alarmed about being made redundant, which can be a very unsettling experience - unless you're Batlord of course, who quit one job and was back in a new one within a week, apparently without breaking stride.

Current suggestion: Blackstuff brawlers (Guinness being the "black stuff") - anyone got an advance on that?

Nah that makes you guys sound way too cool.

I'm sticking with potato monkey. Not only does it have a comedic ring to it, it also reminds them of when they were so cucked by the British that all they had to eat nothing but potatoes. What a **** nationality lol. Somehow even their oppression just sounds comical.
