Leo Varadkar, stop trying to make fetch happen.
In his speech to the nation regarding the easing of restrictions, Leo Varadkar quoted a line from the 2004 teen comedy, 'Mean Girls'. In his speech, Varadkar said that "some have asked whether there is a limit to what we can achieve. My answer is the limit does not exist."
This comes off the back of the previous speech, in which he quoted a line from 'Lord of the Rings: Return of the King', and before that, where he quoted 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'. So why did he quote 'Mean Girls', you ask?

Well, in a nutshell, Sean Astin - who played Samwise Gamgee in 'Lord of the Rings' - put him up to it, and posted a video in which bet Taoiseach Varadkar €50 (or "fifty quid", as Astin put it, no doubt from the Cameo script he was given) to try and put in a reference to 'Mean Girls'.
Challenge accepted then, and completed with Sean Astin now owing the Taoiseach fifty lids. Leo Varadkar or your staff, if you're reading this, we're challenging you now to quote any scene from 'Jaws' in the next speech.
