The boy landlord

An béal bocht

These Hibernian landlords, these English cunts* — polite like an Irishman, greedy as an Anglo-Norman overlord.


If you want the least bit of maintenance, you get An béal bocht — "the poor mouth." But when it's your money? Suddenly business is business.

* The word "cunt," in European English, is not a misogynistic term. It's just a way of refering to someone — a bloke — in an insulting way.

It is, to paraphrase the great George Carlin, "a synonym for 'fellow'" — but derogatory.

It's vulgar, but not obscene — and not misogynistic.
