I used to live in the Streeterville area of Chicago near Michigan avenue. There is a bar in that area called "Timothy O'Toole's Pub".
I walked past this sign a hundred times before I looked at it closely and really thought about it. What does it show?
- a balding man
- with red hair
- drinking heavily (spilled his beer)
- passed out
In short, the guy is everyone's stereotype of an Irishman. And where are the protests? Where are the demonstrators? Where is the guy with the microphone, the plea for understanding of different cultures?
Hey it's just a drunken Irishman, so no big deal, I guess.
