What being Irish really means - top ten “you know you’re Irish if”

We know everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, but what does it really take to be Irish?

Here’s a funny list compiled from writer Joe Keefe’s book.

How many do you agree with? Let us know below.

1.You will never play professional basketball.

2.You have no idea how to make a long story short.

3.You are very good at playing a lot of very bad golf.

4.You have never hit your head on the ceiling.

5.You're strangely poetic after a few beers.

6.Someone in your family is incredibly cheap. It is more than likely you.

7.You don't know the words, but that doesn't stop you from singing.

8.You can't wait for the other guy to stop talking so you can start talking.

9.You're not nearly as funny as you think you are, but what you lack in talent, you make up for in frequency.

10.You are, or know someone, named "Murph." If you don't know Murph, then you know Mac, if you don't know Murph or Mac, then you know Sully, and you'll probably also know Sully McMurphy.
and because it’s simply so true:

11.You are genetically incapable of keeping a secret.
