Only had a small portion due to being in the middle of a very busy day and just needing something to eat. While not the best chip shop ever, they've maintained better than average chip standard consistently since I was a kid. They do really nice battered beef burgers but I didn't have time to wait for one to be cooked.

This could've gone in many threads but this it where it lives.  

Believe in batter.

Am I missing a joke there or is she actually a wrestler called Session Moth Martina?

The gimmick is a drunk Irish chav. I saw her at progress and she was pretty good

It's no excuse for that name though, is it.

Not really, no.  Not sure what it means myself. She’s Irish, and I think it means something over there.

Just down the road from me. When I was working nights, I'd pass by it on the way to work at about 9.30pm and it was constantly rammed, Mon to Fri. It's more of a restaurant though, I'm sure that disqualifies it from being a proper chipper.

I'm down that way on Monday afternoon, I'll pop in to see what all the fuss is about if it's not too busy.

Session = drinking session

Session moth = someone who's attracted to session's like a moth is to a flame

Hence "Session Moth", Martina is just a stereotypically chavvy name like Stacey or Chanel.

Moth is also slang in Ireland (well, in Dublin at least), used in place of girlfriend/bird/the missus etc. Always thought that had something to do with her name.

Yeah, I initially assumed the "moth to flame" metaphor, but every Irish wrestling fan I know has said it's the other meaning. She's billed as "from the inner city flats, Dublin", so if it's Dublin slang, that makes sense.

She (and others) have said plenty of times that it was basically a local-centric comedy act that nobody ever expected to get over outside of Ireland, hence the name.
