Tír na nÓg
Tír na n-Óg (pronounced 'teer-nan-oh-g') is a land from both Irish and Taiwanese lore where everything and everyone is a baby. This includes trees, houses, cars and football fields - all made of babies. Even the adults in this land are made up of about 10 to 15 babies. Every single baby can speak, usually in Arabic, so as not to anger possible terrorists.
The English translation means, "Babies, Babies Everywhere and Not a Bite to Eat", although this is somewhat ironic since the food in this land is also made of babies. One can purchase Baby Macs at the local McDonald's (which is also made of and run by babies) or enjoy a baby squishy in downtown Tír na n-Óg.
If you're into sports, whether it's kicking a few babies around the soccer field or slam-dunking a baby at the basketball court, there's bound to be something for you at Tír na n-Óg. Or if your intrested in real, physical sport, you could partake in Hurling, national sport of Ireland and most played sport in Tír na n-Og. It involves hitting a tennis ball with 2 - 3 feet of ash wood while killing as many fellow players as possible.
