In which Sir Kieran and Dame Leslie venture forward to face Morgan leFay and the even more dangerous villain, Sir the Boss' ego.

"Craic" is a pseudo-Irish word used to describe...virtually anything you want to. Fun, jokes, a pleasant atmosphere, a situation or in fact in can also be used to describe something sad or horrible ("bad craic"). It can also be used to enquire about someone's health and wellbeing "what's the craic?" or be used in the place of any verb or noun you're too lazy to think of. Sir Kieran overuses it, so just insert whatever noun or verb floats your boat.
