Confused ass who seems to think that everyone, including "yanks" (who says that anyway?), wants to be Irish.
Beef hallion: "You wanna be Irish don't you?"
Me: "Uh, guess it might be fun for a day to see what it feels like to be obnoxious and short."
Beef hallion: "You have to be born there, bloke!"
Me: "Oh, that's too bad."
