I’m not quite sure what your living arrangements are. Perhaps you live under a rock, perhaps a home like most people. If the former, however, you’re probably unaware of Irish politician Alan Tobin – who went viral yesterday across the internet.
Alan, from County Meath, Ireland, is “a local business owner with big ideas and a lot of ambition”. He is also petrified of dogs. So much so, that on Sunday evening he proudly announced that his campaign to protect the public from the very dogs that cause him to regularly defecate his suit pants, will no longer be a danger to the public.
He did this with the following Facebook post from his official page, which has since had a LOT of attention.
As you can see, Alan clearly suffers from an unhealthy dose of ignorance, and his sign perfectly displays this. In his post on Facebook, the charming councillor for Ashbourne Municipal District wrote: “It still amazes me that some people think these dogs are ideal family pets.”
The safety notice includes 10 different breeds of dog and warns they should be leashed or muzzled, wearing a collar bearing the owner’s name and address and be under the control of someone over the age of 16 at all times.
Tobin, however, is a dog owner himself, which he neatly displays in his opening statement: “As a dog owner I’m absolutely delighted that signs I’ve asked for, with pictures, showing the dangerous breeds of dogs have been erected over the past week.” And with nothing but his sign to go off, we imagine Alan’s dog is roughly ankle height, and barks aggressively at the quietest of farts. But that’s just a guess.
Unsurprisingly, the public did not take kindly to Tobin’s post, which can be seen on every comment section and orifice of his Facebook page. The following images were taken from and posted on the wall post section of his page in the last half an hour, and is only a small percentage of what he has received in the past 24.
In conclusion, you must stay away from this man unless you find him accompanied by a sane, rational human friend who can shield you from the dangerous bollocks that regularly falls from his mouth.
