Spot on Griska.
Best one I heard was while friend of mine was doing a "course" and they were having a discussion on 'is there a class system in Ireland?'
The class agreed in the affirmative while the teacher was alone in rubbishing the idea. They asked her if there was, where would she place herself on the ladder. Before the the question was even out of their mouths, the teacher reassured them she considered herself middle class. "Not the money but the values" you see...
One of many days my friend spend banging her head against the wall down the local VEC.
