Can’t we just laugh at the stereotypeS because we truly know that there is some truth to it? Maybe my sister is not a big Irish drinker , but she’s related to a lot of micks who enjoy the drink . Of course the stereotypes aren’t positive ! We all kind Irish families are close , etc. but that’s not funny .Lighten up, Francis and be proud of where you’re from. Wouldn’t it be worse if no one had a funny analogy to where you are from? This is what’s wrong with America. No one can laugh at themselves .
