Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland, UK

People look like Lilliputians as they scramble over the Giant's Causeway, a path of polygonal pilings built by the Irish giant, Finn McCool, to get to Scotland. He wanted to show the Scottish giant who the boss was. Finn McCool later built a causeway to the USA (since demolished) and opened a chain of Irish pubs. [2009]


  1. So did the Scottish giant accept the Irish giant as his boss?

  2. Alas, they both learned that the crown-wearing English giant was the boss. That's one reason why the Irish giant came to the US to open a chain of bars. Or should we say pubs.

  3. Well, at least someone benefitted from the Irish giant's loss! That is one sorrow well re-directed, imho :)
