While many restrictions have been imposed upon the re-opening of building-sites here in Ireland from today, it has been confirmed that wolf-whistling at passing girls is still permissible.
“We feel this sends a positive message,” said a construction industry spokesman. “The replacement of all that bloody bird-song with loud yells at women to show their boobs will be an encouraging sign that, in many ways, the new normal will be just like the old.”
He also confirmed that there are no plans to introduce butt-masks to hide bum cleavage.
Women were phlegmatic about the news. “It’s a bit tiresome, but not really a problem,” said one. “After all, the type of bloke who thinks we find this flattering is never going to get within two metres of a woman anyway.”
