“JESUS FUCKING CHRIST get rid of the blasphemy law,” an incredulous Irish public once again sighed as the arcane and archaic law has hit the headlines once more, with news that comedian Stephen Fry is being investigated by Gardaí for comments made in an interview with Gay Byrne in 2015.

“Seriously, how hard is it to repeal a law, put it to a referendum or whatever it is that needs to be done God damn it,” added the public, sick of successive Dáils which remain inactive and meek when faced with solving the more embarrassing and regressive elements which remain in Irish law and society.

The Department of Justice, which implemented the law under former Fianna Fáil minister Dermot Ahearn as part of the Defamation Act of 2009, has confirmed that initial planning has been put into place to put the law to a referendum.

“Christ on a bike, where have we heard that before?” grumbled the public, who know how fond the government is of kicking the can down the road on several issues.

“Mother of God, we look like a laughing stock when these things hit the headlines. Isn’t it about time we were actually progressive and not just pretending we are,” pleaded the public when talking to a number of TDs before they had a chance to cover their ears with their hands and shout ‘sorry, can’t hear you, can’t hear you’.
