Last gasp!

Come out come out wherever you are - Ireland the land of saints and scholars - get ye to an offy.... or some sort of shop that's still open between now and midnight, hell I'll take poems in nightclubs... time is running out, it's time to panic, it's time to get a poem and put it in a shop, for your country, for dignity, for pride!!!

Scotland have only gone and got another 5 on the board...  placed by Carolyn Yates, all over Dumphries and Galloway in multiple colorful places.  See here for the full size shots and more on how to find em..

This just in though - it seems the one placed by Rachel Fox, who lives in Scotland, and the score for said poem which was originally awarded to Scotland - should have actually gone to England, so I'm going to have to amend the score.  I know it's not ideal, and I do apologise deeply for the mistake, but these errors, when they occur, must be rectified, so the score now stands at

Scotland 19
Ireland 15
USA 7.5
England 1
RoW 0

Well there's no way we're catching up unless I go on a shopping spree for the next 7 hours, but at least I got one more in - and this time it's an actual poem in an actual shop!

Haha, Bug - You have the distinguished honour of being the final IPYPIASM poet for 2012, I'll have to post later though, as about to go on a long road trip here.
Congrats Titus and Scotland in general!! We'll be back!!!!

Tks again for being a great hostess!

Gerry, we also bet the rest of the world, but then we always do win the GAA world championship too... I guess you're right, there's lots to be proud of. :-)
