First proper blog post of the year, of a graffiti spot at the entrance to the Lagan Towpath in Belfast, of a mural of Barney Gumble.

At the side of the mural, is the inscription “To alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems”

Any Simpsons geek will tell you that this is a line from the episode where alcohol is banned in Springfield, and Homer starts an undergound black market to keep the city’s drinkers happy.

There was also a mural of Homer Simpson, but somebody had defaced it unfortunaely. Doh!
