A fistful...into a Dubliner's goolies

Head on over to A Fistful of Euros and you'll see they are running a poll entitled 'The most beautiful capital in Europe'? Have a look at the contenders. They are as follows:

Wienna (I prefer when it's spelt with a 'V' personally), Prague, Helsinki, Paris, Berlin, Athens, Budapest, Rome, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Moscow, Madrid, Stockholm, Bern, London and 'Other'.

Did you happen to catch one of the cities they managed to leave out? That's right - DUBLIN! They go and leave out the greatest city, not just in Europe, but in the world! Have they lost their mind?

Now unless this site is run by a Corkman, and I'm pretty sure it isn't, this must be regarded as a slap in the face and a kick in the balls for not just Dubliners but Irish people throughout Ireland!

How could they leave Dublin out in favour of Bern? As they would say in 'That 70's Show', burn! No disrespect to any Swiss people from Bern, but I'm pretty sure your city would pale in comparison to our city's architecture. I'm also pretty sure you don't have a great big pole sticking out of your city centre's main street. But we do!

So here is a message to A Fistful of Euros from this Irishman from Dublin, the most beautiful capital in Europe ain't Paris, it ain't Berlin, it ain't 'Wienna' and it damn sure ain't 'Other''s Dublin baby! And don't you forget it.

See, this is why I'm not pro-Europe!
