Ive seen it many many times in Strabane. But its not usually slurry or shit or whatever, more like milk, eggs, flour, mayo etc. Then they drive around the town beeping the horns with the couple tied to a trailer.

A fella i know well enough got acid thrown in his face during his doing (They thought it was a bucket of water). Scarred him badly for life
Never heard of it been done and I've been in weddings in most parts of the country, must be a Nordie thing

It's definitely not done in the more urban side of the country anyway!

Throwing acid is WRONG. In some people's eyes.

A "doing" is almost definitely a nordie thing. I've never heard of it before.

My missus is from up round the border, I've seen it being done. It's only a border thing, doesn't happen in dundalk etc. It's pretty horrific really.

His mates rocked up, grabbed him and his fiancee, cable tied them into a trailer, poured oil, slurry, sheep shit, chicken feathers, tomato sauce, mayo and threw raw eggs at them plus who knows what else then drove them off round the local village covered in shit stuck in the trailer
Fucking hell :lol:

Never heard of that even down in Mayo.

Nordie folk are strange

Think it's 2am the debate starts, might stay up and watch a bit of it, could be quite entertaining. Was reading something earlier saying that Clinton can't descend to name calling but with a few carefully placed jibes Trump could be easily goaded into it and while that might have worked in the primaries in the presidential debates it'd go down like a lead baloon.

His new campaign team seem to have gotten him to stay on script and dial back the craziness a bit unfortunately though

I don't know how badly name calling will hurt him. His supporters clearly don't give a shit, most despise Clinton anyway. Its going to be entertaining either way. Not that I'll be staying up for it.

It might push a few who are unsure about voting for him against him though. To see him do it on such a grand stage like

Donald Trump's sons both look like they've done some really evil stuff in their lives.

Like way worse than shooting african animals.
