Ian O'Doherty: Chill out about the Rubberbandits -- they are just horsin' around. . .

It has been the most hilarious storm in a tea cup for quite some time. In between lingering talk of the budget and the usual sanctimonious bullshit about Gerry Ryan, the only other thing on people's minds has been the brilliant satirical Limerick outfit, The Rubberbandits.
Having first come to attention a while back with their seriously funny 'Song For Willie O'Dea' (featuring among the lyrics: "I know your father . . . my father's dead . . . I knew your father.") they have now become a cause celebre as idiots everywhere are up in arms at their portrayal of Limerick as some sort of gangsters' paradise.
Honestly, where could they possibly have come up with such an idea?
