Hurling got a shout-out on Bob's Burgers on Sunday night

"It's like if hockey, soccer, and baseball had a baby, and they joined a gang that liked to balance eggs."

It's always pretty funny to see people who aren't Irish react to hurling.

Even if you show a brief clip of a hurling match to someone from a different country, they react like you've just shown them the most horrible video they've seen in their lives.

And as confusing or barbaric as it may seem to non-Irish folk, we understand it, and we love it.

Which is why it's always good to see it get a bit of a mention on the global stage.

On Sunday night's episode of the animated comedy Bob's Burgers, Irish comedian Sharon Horgan was a guest star, and the Belcher family popped round to her house for a visit.

Horgan's character, Cathleen, had a game of hurling on in the background, which intrigued the Belchers.

Teddy asks: "What sport are you watching here? What is this? Grass Hockey? People polo?", to which Cathleen replies: "It's like if hockey, soccer, and baseball had a baby, and they joined a gang that liked to balance eggs."

Fairly spot on description, to be honest...

It looks like they're showing an animated version of Cork vs Tipperary, so they probably picked a good game to watch too.
