TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has postponed all meetings scheduled for today in order to allow himself and the Department of the Taoiseach enough time to find the perfect frame to house a picture he posed for with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week, WWN can confirm.
Critical meetings on business investment, Brexit, the border, homelessness, housing and the HSE have been rescheduled in the wake of the pressing need to find a frame that is up to the task of reinforcing just how important the photograph made the Taoiseach look.
“Look, I’m too busy to talk to you frankly, we’re on our way to IKEA,” explained one of the Taoiseach’s Hashtag Alignment Consultants earlier this morning, with a trace of panic in his voice.
IKEA is believed to be just one of 2,000 shops the Taoiseach will visit in a bid to honour the country with the right frame for a photo taken to mark the news Facebook intends to hire more people at their Irish offices.
Eyewitnesses in IKEA shopping for furniture they plan on fighting about with their spouse when attempting to put it together later this evening allege someone fitting the description of the Taoiseach was overheard to exclaiming “me and the Zucks, and what, you think the fucking KARLSNÄS frame is going to do the job? It only costs €3 euro. Is this why I allotted €5 million in the budget for you people. Hashtag disappointed”.
UPDATE: The Department of the Taoiseach has cancelled all upcoming meetings and confirmed the frame selection will take the week to figure out.
