A race that is misunderstood by their neighbours the English due to their craftiness and intelligence. The English call the Welsh sheep-shaggers due to an old trick used by the Welsh against their gullible English neighbours in medievel times, when the English had a nasty habit of fucking sheep. When Wales adopted English law they noticed the penalty for shagging a sheep was less than stealing one (due to the English's habit) so whenever they were caught stealing a sheep they would instead say they were planning to fuck it instead to avoid the fine.
Therefore there is a very long list of crimes involving Welshmen shagging sheep, although it is only the English who would actually ever fuck a sheep, it is just another example of the Welsh tricking the English once again.
Englishman "You are going to have your hand chopped off with an axe because you stole a sheep."

Welshman "I was infact taking the sheep to fuck."

Englishman "Oh, thats good then our law endorses sheep shaggers. You will only have to lose a finger.

A beautiful, and cultured people, who although live on a tiny part of the British Isles, have a colourful, interesting, and varied backround.
The Welsh suffered badly at the hands of the English, during the times of rulers such as Edward Longshanks, and even had their language ruled as illegal. ( cos the stupid git didn't have the intellect to learn the language, and as many overstuffed, self righteous Englishmen, thought everyone was talking about him.)
The Welsh are proud, hardworking, and have survived, and will continue to survive any adversity.
The Welsh now have a government of their own, ( which, granted, is pretty shit at the moment) but is a step in the right direction. Despite all that has been done to try and break the Welsh spirit, they have battled on, and are now a recognised country in their own standiing again.
Sadly, there are still a few pathetic pretend Irishmen, like the one who has left a comment just above, who think that because their very distant ancestors had a rough time, everyone else should feel sorry for them, and pay their way for them for the rest of their lives, just because a very small minoroty of them didn't have the guts to hold on to their heritage. PIKEY.

It's like belonging to any nationality.
You are proud to be where you are from, you have love for your country and long for it's comforts. The Welsh come from many traditions and patriotism is one of the oldest. And we have every right to be patriotic. We are a strong principality, despite the discrimination we face not just from out brother and sister neighbouring countries but by our Government. One of the oldest languages in Europe and the first people in Britain and we're still alive and fighting. That is something to be proud of.

I truly love my country. I am proud of everything it possess and stands for. Freedom. Unity. Patriotism. Talent. Love. And I may travel and move away from home, but I will NEVER forget the land I came from because, to me, it's the perfect home.
If being Welsh makes me a sheep shagger, a miner, an idiot with a stupid accent, gullible, thick and a down right fool then I proudly accept ALL of those stereotypes because I will never deny my root or what people believe to be my roots. I know different, and that's all that matters :)
Be proud to wave the flag of whatever country you are from :)

A race of people who are discriminated against by the English. A proud (sometimes stubborn) clever people who live in Wales. Because of poverty and discimination, many Welshmen herd sheep, farm, or mine. In America, Welsh immigrants are renown miners and and hardworkers, especially in Western PA. Never call a Welshman a welcher, or he'll kick your ass. Never call a Welshman english, or he'll kick your ass. The English discriminate against annd think they are better than the Welsh, so the Welsh don't like the english. The Welsh love shepards pie!
The Welsh are incredibly intelligent! Fuck yeah!

A cultured race of good people who keep getting put down by asshole Englishmen. Now, let me tell you right now, not all Welshmen hate the British. That is a stereotype. But a lot of British do hate the Welsh, as you can see by all those unprovoked sheep-"shagging" jokes.(Haha. Shagging. That's so fuckin British. What's the matter, "fuck" is too strong for you "well-bred" English?) I was flying on an airplane once, having a nice conversation with this British woman for most of the flight. Then I tell her I'm Welsh, and what does she do? She says, "oh, that's too bad." And she doesn't speak to me the rest of the flight. Whatever. I guess every race has it's assholes. Oh, and not all Welsh people tend sheep and mine, and like shepards pie. But I'll admit, a lot do.
If you're Welsh, don't back down to those bastards with their fuckin' old as shit sheep jokes. Just make something of yourself, and prove them wrong. I just realized that other Welsh guy is from Philly, too. Represent the Philly Welchers!
