8 things red-headed people are sick of hearing

Sorry ranga.

THIS EVENING RTÉ 2 airs an exploration of what it is to have red hair.

Angela Scanlon – herself a redhead – presents ‘Oi Ginger!’, an investigation into the myths, rumours and truths about those with the flaming gene.

For instance, there’s the issue of sperm banks turning away redheads, and the idea that they’re more hot tempered than brunettes or blondes.

Here are some of the things we’re fairly sure redheads are sick of hearing…

1. “Is that your natural colour?”

2. “I’d say you have a fierce temper”

Come over here and I’ll show you.

3. “Does the carpet match the curtains?”

4. “You’re not really THAT ginger though, are you?”

5. “I’d say you fry in the sun, do you?”

No, I turn a deep shade of mahogany. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!

6. “Gingers have no soul, lol”

7. “Something, something ED SHEERAN… something, something RON WEASLEY”

Yes. There are famous people with red hair. Let’s talk about Annie while we’re at it, shall we?

8. “Sorry ranga”

Well done. You’ve seen Summer Heights High.
