Mark, this is classic Irish satire. Just like Swift’s “Modest Proposal.” The beauty of satire is that can break through conventional thinking and open people’s eyes in a way that logical arguments cannot. Cheers.
That is great! Sort of like Babylon Bee here in the US. What’s nuts is that this satire is as silly as some of stuff we see in the legacy media. Thanks.
