Irish Farmers To Start Exporting Rain

After another washout summer, enterprising Irish farmers are to start exporting rain.

"We've got so much of the blinkin stuff we thought we'd start shipping it abroad, so we did, to be sure," said Seamus O'Flatley of the newly formed Dundalk Irish Rain Exporters (DIRE).

"We simply charter a boat, open the hatches, fill the bugger with rain, close the hatches and ship it to wherever it's needed," he said.

Last week the group loaded the 55,000 MT panamax MV Bejesus bound for Argentina in just three hours.

"There's a lot of demand out there. We've already signed contracts for next season's Cheltenham Festival and Wimbledon," he added before doing a little dance.
