Acting Taoiseach Heads Chicago March

Acting Taoiseach Brian Cowen today took a well earned break from fisting the economy to death by leading a St Patrick’s Day march in Chicago.

Mr Cowen will later this week travel to Washington where he will play the stage Irish card and present a crystal bowl of weeds to US President Barack Obama. This will be his second time to make a presentation to the leader of the free world but will differ in two key respects from last year. Firstly the crystal bowl will not be manufactured in Ireland as we no longer have an indigenous cut crystalware industry; secondly Mr Cowen’s autocue camera will have a big picture of a pint above it with a sign reading “THIS IS YOUR SPEECH DOPE” above that to prevent a repeat of last year’s faux pas when Mr Cowen tried to deliver the president’s speech in error.

The acting Taoiseach will return with plenty of duty free in just over a week and is expected to commence work on his forthcoming autobiography.
