Interesting trait of Irish people

Extrapolating talents, skills and feats of famous irish people to the population at large. We are all playwrights, musicians, dramatists, interlocutors, whimsical ntellectuals and poets. Bizarre.

Does this mean all Belgians are action movie stars?

It's the Irish man/woman's burden when abroad to sound like a Yeats or a Heaney when most of us are anything but.

Yes, well, I find that the fair solution is to settle for a hybrid trait of inebriate pugilistic bards. Let's face it, even the dainty lasses have to own up to this.

You just made up a statement, and then called it Bizarre.

Is the left side of your brain not talking to the right?

I'm not but part of my DNA isn't Irish. So i put it down to that.

But i will say this.

Most irish people in my mind ...are beautiful speakers. And i love to listen to you all.

I wish i had your gift.
