A cute little quiz

How Irish Are You?

My Results:

Finn MacCool
You scored 86 Common Sense, 61 Irish Facts, and 84 Irish Soul!

I am honored to be in your presence. You know your stuff. You are Irish in your heart. You probably talk like an Irish person after a few pints. You sing the rebel songs. You drink, and probably bleed Guinness. You may have even been interned in British Prisions. You impress (or annoy) all your friends with your vast Irish knowledge. If you are a female, I am in love. If you are a male, we are brothers. We should have a pint. Please don't forget to rate my test...

A cute little quiz

Not exactly cute, a lot of it seemed to be nasty jabs at the British.  Couldn't finish the damn thing.

Yes, looking at it again, it is rather offensive.  My appologies.

Agreed. While there is a lot of justified bad blood between the British and the Irish, things like this do not help the situation.

Admittedly, the quiz is pointing itself toward the "bad blood".  The first few questions were cutesy and stereotypical, then it just soured quickly.

Aside from the nasty British issues, I was annoyed because the test had several instances where more than one answer could be correct, e.g. which nation had a history of oppressing the Irish and listed both British and American as options.  (Which also annoys me because those are nationalities not nations)  Great Britain and American both had some nasty reactions to the Irish in their histories.

You mean like the definitions of the IRA?  3 out of 4 of them were right.

At this point, I honestly don't know if that was included in my reaction or not.  I last looked at the quiz last July.

I thought my result would be something like "You are not Irish at all", but instead, I got this:

Not Serious

You scored 73 Common Sense, 55 Irish Facts, and 66 Irish Soul!
This breakdown is not statistically probable. You must be really damn weird.

 Grin I'm weird, yes.

Since a number of people seem to just be posting their scores, I presume they have no problem with questions about what they should be drinking whilst killing British people.

I hit the third or fourth "hate the Brits" question and stopped.

I'm Irish enough. 

Checklist:
Have Irish in my direct lineage.
Have Red hair (natural and dyed!)
Am devoted to Irish gods.
Have a reasonable grasp on Gaelic pronunciation, if no fluency.
Love Guinness and a good whiskey.
When I've loved them enough I'm bulletproof.

That, I think, is Irish enough!
