Fifty Shades of Grey hit Irish TV last night, and Twitter was hilarious


In case you're unaware, Fifty Shades of Grey made its debut on Irish television last night, and as Christian and Anastasia got intimately acquainted, Irish viewers devoted an inordinate amount of time to their phones.

All too aware of our Holy Catholic Ireland reputation, the Irish public spent hours sending themselves up on Twitter.

From catching family members engrossed in the plot to insisting the S&M storyline was too tame, Twitter was easily as entertaining as the movie causing the influx of posts.

And here, ladies, is just a sample…

1. Shook altogether.

 2. We did it, lads.

3. A fair estimation. 

 4. Well, now.

 5. Classic Mrs. Brown.

6. Tame as anything.
