St Patrick's Day sees a "Smiley Guinness" tax introduced

With the Irish economy on meltdown (+25% VAT), the members of the Dail - the Irish Parliament, have accepted RyanAir chief executive Michael O'Leary as their new Premier.

Former Prime Minister Brian Cowan agreed that Mr O'Leary was the perfect choice for the job, most noticeably because he had an "O" in his surname.

Prior to his swearing in ceremony, where Mr O'leary will be swearing at the members of the press as well as swearing at a selected panel of consumer group members, including the BBC Watchdog programme and Which? Magazine, he has already set the scene for bringing the Irish economy back on course to once more be the tiger economy of Europe.

In a statement issued to the press, Mr O'Leary stated that anything members of the Irish public buy from now on will feature a newly instituted "O'TAX", or "Optional Tax".

For example, if a member of the public goes into a pub for a drink, there will be an "O'Tax" on using a beer glass, sitting on a seat, using the loo. Or if a member of the public goes to the theatre, there will be a seat tax, curtain opening tax, safety curtain tax and theatre exit tax.

Amongst some of the measures to be introduced, Churches will now have a kneeling tax and a communion tax, and expectant mothers can further expect a morning sickness tax, delivery tax, bed tax, nappy tax and cot tax.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
