Imagine this real-life scenario (altered slightly but otherwise in its original form):
You and two other friends go to a bar. It is a typical night out. All three of you come from the same Irish heritage. Your friend Kate, who is obviously intoxicated, had her fair share of drinks for the night. She says (slurring her words), “I am done drinking for the night.” Kate is petite and did not have much to eat that day. Your other friend Caroline responds to Kate saying, “Come on Kate, we’re Irish girls. The Irish people know how to drink. Don’t be a wuss.” Kate smiles with pride, chugs down her beer and proceeds to order another from the bar. The stereotype in this scenario is that all Irish people drink a lot, and have the ability, desire, and drive to consume excessive amounts of alcohol.
What if you want to communicate this common Irish stereotype but don’t want to waste valuable drinking time by saying it? Lucky for you these T-Shirts provide yet another way you can communicate your favorite Irish stereotype.
and don’t forget these…
When people talk about the problems with communicating stereotypes prejudice and discrimination are often discussed. Somehow alcohol poisoning isn’t. Perhaps it should be.
