You know you're Irish if...

~ During your youth, much of your food was boiled.
~ You're strangely poetic after a few beers.
~ You don't know the words but that doesn't stop you from singing.

~ You have no idea how to make a long story short.
~ Tea is the solution to every problem.
~ And holy water is the solution to every injury.
~ Saying 'I will yea' means that you definitely won't.
~ 'For the craic' is the best reason for doing anything.
~ Nobody can go a day without saying 'Jaysus'.
~ You have a gift for swearing.
~ You can insert the name of a gardening tool into any sentence and it still makes sense, e.g. 'I had a rake of drink last night' or "I'll be out in a minute, I'm just shoveling down the dinner'.
~ It's perfectly acceptable to call your mother 'mammy' even though you are a fully grown adult.
~ Saying 'Now we're sucking diesel' means that you are happy with the outcome of the situation.
~ Drinking 'tae' is everyone's favorite past time.
~ You're scared of the wooden spoon.
~ The word 'like' goes in every sentence.
~ You can say "Any craic' to a policeman and you won't get arrested.
