Are the Irish already getting accustomed to a more austere life?
One of the most popular songs in Ireland at this very moment is about how owning a horse is superior to owning a fancy automobile. It may be that the message is resonating with the Irish people. Or, you know, maybe it's just a really, really funny gag. The song is called "A Horse Outside" and it is by the Rubberbandits, a comedy hip-hop outfit from Limerick. The video, below, was released on December 8th.
Warning: There's a lot of foul language. So if that kind of thing offends you, consider turning down the volume. Also, if you are at work, listen with headphones.
