Obscure Historical Reference of the Day


FYI: Shane McGowan is the singer for infamous Irish band The Pogues (see Fairytale of New York reference from the quiz) and bears a striking resemblance to Pat, the new man in Eileen’s life. Maybe not in this picture, but in one of his rare moments of sobriety he does look like Pat. Honest.

    I like on how the show whenever the subject of Pat’s attractiveness comes up, there’s a bit of a quiet pause, like when Eileen saw him for the first time and Sean’s reaction at the pub when he met him.

    Just that, ‘hmmmm, okay’ as everyone calculates that they suppose it *could* be worse.

    Although fair dues, he did clean up nicely for the date – which *almost* makes up for that flower he presented her the first time around.
