Item description for Gubu Nation: Grotesque, Unbelievealbe, Bizarre, Unprecedented Happenings In Ireland by Damian Corless...
When a suspected double-murderer is found in the home of Ireland's Attorney General that's GUBU. When the Irish public are told that a 'fact sheet' will help them to survive nuclear fallout that's GUBU. When an Irish national newspaper reports that Frank Sinatra "kept smiling and wanking" that's GUBU.
GUBU Nation is the jaw-dropping outcome of countless hours spent rummaging down the back of posterity's sofa. Gone but not forgotten - not anymore - are the strange case of the Hare Krishnas and the drugged ice cream, the mass protests that met Ireland's first staging of Eurovision, the brief phenomenon of Toni the Exotic Dancer and many other uniquely Irish happenings and events.
With over fifty tales of the unexpected, the vaguely familiar and the just plain ludicrous GUBU Nation is Grotesque, Unbelievable, Bizarre, Unprecedented and describes those moments when words otherwise fail.
