A blog by Jorge Garcia.

Hey remember when I started telling you guys about my trip to Ireland. Seems like forever but here's some more.

After Waterford our next stop was CORK. The two greatest things about cork are:

Cork has a BUTTER MUSEUM. 
That's right. A museum dedicated to butter. 

Right next to The Firkin Crane
 (which I said over and over again - Move yer FIRKIN CRANE!)

Like the Moloka'i Museum 
the Butter museum also starts with a video. Let's just say it was no Iron Man.
But the walls are made of real butter. 
By the way you can get more gold if you use a bigger pan. (little tip)
The second greatest thing about Cork was this dog we saw wandering the streets. 
So cute we almost put him in that green bag and took him with us.

Awww... I had a little dog very much like that when I was little only my dog was Scottish, not Irish. He was Mr. MacKenzie.... Max for short.

jen said...

OMG. I've seen a few heads of butter in my time, but never a museum! I'm officially PO'd at my Irish friend for not informing me of this must-see attraction..

Also, that dog is adorable and it breaks my heart to think of it just wandering the streets! (Maybe the butter museum can adopt it?)

Okay, I guess I'd better edit my comment, after hearing the WHOLE story (Thank you, Bethany).

Butter + Stinky Cute Puppy = Post filled with Stinky Buttery Awesome. Which has got to be better than just regular stinkiness.

The butter museum sounds even more interesting than the pencil sharpener museum in Ohio. Tastier, at least...

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
