he was identified as an Irish tourist. Way to go enforcing the stereotype.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

This sort of idiocy should be an instant loss of driving privilege.

Oh damn... And there I was all day putting things on my head sideways, and asking that Irish guy at work "What am I?". :D

I think Police apologized for calling him Irish, when they thought he was only acting like he was Irish:)

Fair enough, it's a simple mistake

Most anyone from the Tron would confuse Jaffas and Irish......
after all they're all foreigners once they cross the Bombays, no matter how they tie their kayaks

To be fair, it was the wind that broke his roof rack and skewed his kayak. Not nearly as good a story, I know, but who cares these days about truth and accuracy?

To be really fair, in that case he's a numpty for not tying it to front and rear bumpers.

To be really, really fair, I've known experienced kayakers who have done similar, including one guy who only tied to the rear bumper (and roofrack) and ended up towing his kayak and roofrack at 100kph down the motorway.
