13 facts of life you'll only relate to if you're ginger

It’s not easy being ginger, you know.

1. First of all, you’ve been on the receiving end of some ‘gas’ jokes in your time

For example:

“Have you ever read, eh, what’s it called? Oh yeah, this book called Pubes.”

“Have I read Pubes?”

2. Headlines like this simultaneously make you feel like a special snowflake and a genetic anomaly

3. You’re forced to lather yourself in Factor Ginger whenever the sun comes out in Ireland

Sure, it might only be 18 degrees, but it’s Factor 50 or nothing.
