the 1916 potatoes’ rising
Altro compito al corso.
La traduzione buffa di un evento della storia irlandese.
THE Easter Rising (Irish: Éirí Amach na Cásca) was an insurrection staged in Ireland during Easter Week, 1916.
THE Rising was mounted by female Potatoes, sick and tired to be considered like mere objects.
“There is more to us Potatoes than bodies to be used by both Britons and Paddies!!!”,
they cried on each Irish O’Connell street (a zillion, as anyone can see).
ALL of a sudden, a huge cattle of Paddies came out of their homes with IRA, which is an Italian word meaning “rage”, and “anger”.
In fact, the holes you can see in the General Post Office columns are the blessed relics of their shots.
THEY won, in the end, scoring 3 goals in a few minutes, while female Potatoes were getting sicker and sicker.
THIS is what is called “potato blight”. Unfortunately, it caused the death of up to a couple of millions of Irish female Potatoes.
