*&%$ of the Irish

Reason’s Hit & Run drifts away from Ron Paul discipleship long enough give us the rundown on the BBC bowing to public pressure and playing the Pogues/Kirsty MacColl Christmas classic Fairytale of New York with the f-word intact.

Not that f-word. The verse: “You scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy …”

It’s always funny to see singers muddle through this line in Irish pubs. “You scumbag, you maggot, you cheap luffle (muffle), Merry Christmas you arse …”
