After giving some serious thought to the matter, we've concluded that the Irish are probably the least likeable people on the planet.

You hear visitors to Ireland saying things like, "the Irish are sooo friendly, they're so fun, they've got such a beautiful country" — alas, it's our regret to inform you that all of these statements are utterly false.

Don't believe it? Allow me to illustrate how devoid of positive qualities these islanders are...

Their accents are horrendous

Who could find this attractive?

Their native language is gobbledygook

An assault on the ears.

Their names make no sense

Here's an idea, Órfhlaith Ó'Muireadhaigh or whatever, get a name that actually sounds like it's spelled.

They've got no sense of humour

This lot are drier than the Sahara.

They've got no idea about food

Reeeal tempting cuisine you got there, guys.

Beef Guinness Stew

They're devoid of musical talent

Musicians of Ireland, do yourselves a favour: don't give up the day jobs.

They can't act to save their lives

Not exactly known for their stellar performances.

They're abysmal at sport

Can you even name any real athletes among 'em?

And the fans are even worse

I mean, just look at this carry on...

They can't dance

And I think we can all agree that the world would be much better off if they didn't try.

They've never produced a writer worth mentioning

Their number one export is pure drivel.

James Joyce

They've never contributed anything to the world

You think they'd have invented something useful at this stage...


Their hair is an insult to the eyes

Who in their right mind would want to stay a redhead?


They don't know the first thing about good booze

Stick to making tea, lads.

Pint Of Guinness

Their history would make you fall asleep

Can you even name one noteworthy event in their whole past?

They're seriously inhospitable

They don't know the first thing about making a guest feel at home.

Incapable of electing a decent president

Democracy clearly isn't for them.

Michael D

And finally, at the end of the day, they're just no craic at all
