Government Finally Lift Law On Compulsory Furry Hoods
A COMPULSORY law which forces hundreds of thousands of Irish men and women to wear jackets with furry hoods has finally been lifted by the government following a Dáil debate.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny announced the law change this morning outside Leinster house.
“After a heated debate between this Government and the Opposition, a majority Dáil vote found in favour of abolishing this ten-year-old law implemented by the last Government,” he said. “I would like to take this moment to apologise to the people of Ireland for not addressing this issue before, but we were kind of busy trying to get the country back on its feet.”
In 2005, then Taoiseach Bertie Ahern made it compulsory for Irish citizens to wear furry hooded jackets after a business partner and friend acquired a large scale manufacturing company in China, which specialised in stitching furry hooding.
“Looking back at it now it seems ridiculous that a state leader could do such a thing,” Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin agreed. “But those furry hoods are now part of the Irish makeup and it would be like burning the Irish flag to get rid of them.”
Thankfully Mr. Martin’s plea fell on deaf ears and a 52% majority yes vote won in favour of lifting the ban.
