A dash of autism in Irish rugby

I follow Dara O’Briain on Twitter – he just said he’s about to watch the Ireland game. He’s a funny guy and here is a joke about Ireland -where he’s from – and autism, a condition I have.

Most people have heard of Gary McKinnon, the autistic computer hacker. People with autism like things to be in order. They eat the same food on the same day and wear the same style clothes week in week out.

Most of the Irish are autistic. They always do things in twos:

They have two religions;

For each of those religions they have two political parties;

And each of those political parties have two leaders.

Ireland would have two rugby teams – but with the trouble in Greece at the moment the EU will only pay for one rugby stadium.
