So you thought a ‘bottom-up approach’ was when your doctor prescribed suppositories? Or that ‘credit crunch’ was a breakfast cereal? Since the country was flushed down the jacks, it seems like our bankers, politicians and media commentators have adopted a completely new language. In this hilarious book you’ll find an explanation for every piece of doublespeak the gobshites have used to try to pull the wool over our eyes: from Affluenze to Zombie Banks, from Bertienomics to Double Dip Recession. Liberally spiced with ‘Bullshit Boxes’, which recall the less than insightful predictions and comments of ‘experts’ and politicians, it is the perfect antidote to the gloom and doom of the past years.
‘Sharing the pain’ has never been so much craic.
