Ban request mods for this moran. This is racist. What are you guys problem with the Irish we arent all whiskey drinking, potato picking, bog trotting, bomb makers you know? First we have rougue mods and now we have a nero-nazi generalisations here. Bejesus , im proud of my Irish roots to be sure and we are the best at everything. God's country.:evil:

WHY DID GOD INVENT WHISKEY/
TO KEEP THE IRISH FROM RULING THE WORLD!


That my good chap, is a compliment.

Jack Daniels was a very short man, but a Jack and coke will make me 10 feet tall and fire proof.... :wink:

An Irish Drinking song by the Pogues goes....

"Lets drink and drink and drink and drink, and drink and drink and fight..."

I, too, have Irish blood in my veins, and when I drink All I want to do is fight... :wink:

Me three. But since almost everyone on earth who is at least 1/32nd Irish seems to feel it's their duty to tell the whole world about it, I try to be different.

... Oops.

I am a mixture of WASP Catholic Irish, French Canadian and Chinese.
That equates to: Canadian.

The mile high club is nothing. I know some truckers who have 2 million miles.

No, it wasn't a personal attack, and it wasn't aimed at anyone from WrongPlanet. I can see how it might have been interpreted that way, and I apologise. My dad's parents are/were Irish, as was one of my mum's parents, so I guess that makes me a third generation 3/4 Irishman. I thought I could get away with some light humour, a bit like Jewish comedians telling Jewish jokes. Maybe I misjudged.
It's just something I've noticed. It's often people with the most distant Irish ancestry who mention it most often, especially showbiz types.
Also, when someone with an Irish surname discovers my Irish surname, they often start talking to me about Irishness. I guess it would be odd not to, and it's nice that people are friendly, but I never have much to say on the subject. I've never even been to Ireland.

If you're referring to me, I don't hate Muslims.

Oh and some fraction of Welch and Jewish, but I have no idea how much Irish. I just know its something more than welch and less than english..... But I have the looks (red hair) and the drinking and fighting down pat :wink:

My maternal great-grandparents were Polish Jews who immigrated to England. My paternal great-grandmother was an Irish immigrant to England. My dad's dad was English of the Viking invader variety who'd been in a family that had been in past times farmers, and more recently chefs - middle class, then.

So, let's see: you and I both have English, Irish and Jewish connections. Perhaps we are quite compatible even though I can't stomach your political opinions at all. How about a compromise? I'll climb a tree and you can come and save me and we can have a tawdry little affair. That way, we can get rid of any sexual tensions we have but save ourselves from producing a hellish offspring.

I've never had any firefighter crumpet, and I fancy some. Obviously you and I are of different classes but that's no obstacle to stop us having some fun, now is it?
