Epic Pissed Off Irishman

This may not be an actual TV clip, but this interview with an Irishman who works in finance was one of the highlights of my weekend (in fairness, my weekend was not that exciting). Asked about the demise of the Celtic Tiger — the unprecedented economic growth that Ireland enjoyed from 1995-2007 — this old dude goes off on a colorful and salty rant about “wankin’ bankers” who should be spending the rest of their lives in jail. It’s fantastic. (Be sure to stick around for the final exchange, which is easily the best part.) I wish this guy was my grandfather. He seems like the kind of grandpa who would give you whiskey at age eight and teach you how to take a punch.
