See The Guard. OK, it's a white-black cop buddy film. But the white cop's a slightly corrupt racist and the black cop's an FBI man sent to the west of Ireland. If you're Irish, you'll laugh all the way through, except for the sad bits. If you're not, you'll laugh 80% of the time. Brendan Gleeson stars, so you can't go wrong.
And you'll discover that IRA operatives have to file reports.
Meanwhile, here's a lunch to put a smile on your face, and a notice strung up near my flat. I admire the tradition of publicly humiliating your opponents. I just wish the signs were spelled better.
