14 times Irish people proved they are the best in the world at taking the piss

Actually world class.

SOMETIMES, AS A nation, we just can’t stop ourselves taking the piss out of every situation.

And there have been some notable examples in the past:

1. Like when this Irish guy in London convinced Selfridges that this is a real Irish name

2. And when a different Irish person proved that we, as a country, were definitely going to take the piss out of Nutella’s innocent PR idea
