For Cod and Ulster

That's the name of a new chip shop in loyalist east Belfast. According to last Saturday's Irish Times, the new chipper's front doors bear two drawings, one of Ian Paisley, his fork in a large meat sausage, proclaiming it the best in Ulster and another drawing of Gerry Adams gripping a hamburger saying "At last we agree on something!"

Now "For Cod and Ulster" was good enough for me. But The Times adds that this was no doubt the product of the good fry-day agreement. Almost worth the highly-inflated cost of the paper all by itself, isn't it.
