      1. Father Ted is a situation comedy television programme produced by Hat Trick Productions for Channel 4. The show depicts the lives of three Irish Catholic priests on the remote fictional Craggy Island off the west coast of Ireland. It ran for three series, totalling 25 episodes, between 21 April 1995 and 1 May 1998 on the UK’s Channel 4. Father Ted was written by two Irish writers, Arthur Mathews and Graham Linehan, who also co-created Big Train. All of the interior scenes were shot at The London Studios and all of the location footage was shot in Ireland.

  1. It’s a reference to an Irish TV show about 3 Priests who live on a rural Island called Father Ted,
    The reference is to an episode in which the Priests protest an erotic movie being shown at the cinema, making it more popular as a result, their placcards say Down With This Sort Of Thing and Careful Now
    You’ll find it on youtube!

  2. Fool! Your life a waste! All life a waste! The genie is out of the bottle! Duck and Cover! Duck and Cover! The Americans are coming! Duck and Cover! Even the mighty U.S.S.R. couldn’t make life endurable, at least the morphine and her wicked sister Heroin can keep the pain back for now! Fool! Put the placard down! Make love to a girl! Any girl, pretty is a relative thing! ?Drink wine while you can! Drink deep, love her the same way! The placard has no hips, no soft lips, no breasts, no heart! Live for today is all you have! The genie is out of the bottle!

  3. This sign has become somthing of a clice in ireland these days. With father ted being so popular and the students now up in arms over the possibility of fees this sign has become a mainstay of protests.
