An entrepreneurial rogue from Northern Ireland solidified his 'cute hoor' status by posting an ad for an Irish passport application form on Ebay, and he's taking no prisoners. 

Following the shock result of the Brexit vote, lots of UK residents have begun looking into how to attain an Irish passport in order to retain their EU status. 

So much so, that a post office in Belfast posted a sign saying they had in fact run out of Irish passport forms, and would be taking a while until any more came in. Deciding to take matters into his own hands, this northern rogue posted the ad, charging £100 for the form and a further £25 for postage.

The full ad states:

For Sale: 1x APS 2E Irish Passport Application Form

There is currently a very high demand for these application forms. Avoid the riots at the Post Office by purchasing online now.

Price has been adjusted to to reflect current GBP/Euro exchange rate.

Form will be dispatched within 24hr by courier providing that courier still exists.

Note: If there is a land border erected between North and South of Ireland you may be forced to scale fence in order to collect application form.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Since its release, the ad has been updated;

Update 2/7: I have received a number of enquiries regarding safe and secure delivery of Irish Passport application forms.

We are investing resources to enable mass delivery by drone. In the event that a dome is placed over parts of Ireland or the UK, I'm afraid I will be no longer able to assist and in that case I will see you in one of the camps.

Note: as a result of the Euro and GBP no longer existing as currencies I will only be accepting Irish punts or pasteurised milk as payment.

Finally my house is not open to Irish refugees, please stop asking.

Unrelated: I need approximately 5000 people to build a 200ft wall around the perimeter of my house. This is not related to the current political and economic situation and is merely a coincidence. Get in touch if you can help. 80hr week. Unpaid.

You heard it here first folks, get them while they're hot!
