Now that’s what I call shopping ! June 26, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in General Bloggery, Ireland & the Irish.

Just look at the quality modern art piece that confronted me on my lunchtime walk yesterday.  Only in Ireland could such mundane items be put together in such a loving and heartfelt way.


For the record, the contents of this misplaced Tesco trolley were : 3 orange traffic cones and one “No Parking” smaller cone, a green gas canister, a beer keg and a wonderful blue wooden pallet.  The accompanying pink and mangy dressing gown decorated the piece wonderfully.  The whole lot was polished off by being tethered to the nearby railings with red and white emergency plastic rope.

I was deeply touched by the symbolism of the piece.  Then I went and had a sandwich !

sets it off perfectly … actually i meant to add that when i walked to the car park after work, the dressing gown was gone. some of the local bums must’ve taken a fancy to it.
