If there's one thing to be said about us Irish, it's that we know how to run with a joke.
It's been a year and a half since The Beast from the East rolled in, and the Great Bread Shortage of 2018 subsequently occurred (may we never forget.)
True to form, with Tropical Storm Lorenzo set to batter the country from this afternoon and into tomorrow, the jokes about bread have been gathering momentum on Irish Twitter.
See below for a selection of the best of today's jokes... today. (See what we did there?)
Ready and waiting. #stormlorenzo

Ireland during a major storm: C'mon make it a red weather warning so we can have the craic, buy all the bread and go to the pub
Rest of the world during major storm: stocks up on essentials and hole up safely.#stormlorenzo
