You always talk about this shit. I don't really care either way, I think it's kind of fun. I think being a self-loathing anything is kind of dumb. I am not Johnny Irish, but I do know that Pop came from county Armagh in the North and Nan came from County Wexford in the south and that one of Pop's relatives was a horse thief, which admittedly has little to do with Irish-ness itself but is pretty cool.
I think there's more to hate about our childhood involving being merely brderline white trash in a full on white trash section of town, which is basically the equivalent of having a target painted on your back as a kid.
