The dogs on the blogs
Deputy Cuffe of the Greens referred during Statements on Public Order Offences in the Dáil yesterday to the fact that the dogs on the blogs knew there would be trouble on Saturday. Check out the various contributions at www.oireachtas.ie if you're in the neighbourhood feeling daffy. It rather reminded me of my time in Spain some years ago as la lengua Castilano gradually impressed itself on my cerebelum. Whenever I learned a new word, I would suddenly begin to hear it everywhere, strewn liberally throughout almost every conversation. I concluded therefore that it was obviously the case that words I didn't know, I simply didn't hear. I wonder how many of Deputy Cuffe's parliamentary colleagues heard him use the word "blogs".
