Shite Muslims: the hidden irish connection
Michael O’ Toole from Toomevarra, County Tipperary agreed to an interview today. As one of the growing muslim adherants in Tipperary we asked him a few questions about mastitis and the wireworm in the carrots this year.
Journo:Michael , what was it that attracted you to ShiteIslam?
Michael: I was always interested in it. Ever since I was a little fella running around with no shoes I was stepping in shite. I’d come home from school every evening and my father would say, get the shite out of here and go muck the cowhouse out. Piles of shite feet high. It just never seemed to stop. There was always more of it.
Journo: A typical country childhood really
Michael: Yes, of course in Tipperary we would be very republican so it couldn’t be shit this, shit that. Too upper class, british you know. Shite was the only form allowed. It was all a natural progression.
Jorno: So whats with the Iraqi connection?
Michael: I was over there in BaghDad and I had a meeting with Mr.Aziz , nice fella actually, you know no. 5 on the cards like. Well I was organising a live shipment of bullocks at the time.I never met Saddam himself but I heard he wasn’t a Shite himself although I always thought he was, so do most people I know.
To cut a long story short, I met Brownie my lovely Iraqi wife. When she told me she was only a Shite Muslim I said don’t worry, we are all little children in the eyes of God. If some of us stray sometimes it is human nature. She convinced me that to be a Shite Muslim was better than being a bad christian, and as I had the experience with Shite all my life it wasn’t a difficult decision
Journo: So have you anything that could sum up your experiences for our listeners
Michael: I may not be in Iraq anymore but I can tell you I’m the same old Shite as ever , isn’t that right kids? Go on and clean out the cowhouse now, great kids aren’t they?..
