Most Hated Man in Irish History?

Oliver Cromwell is undoubtedly one of the most infamous characters in the history of the British Isles. None will deny that the man was only just short of if the very definition of genocidal, having killed nearly 300,000 people in Scotland and Ireland, with nearly double that amount dying after the wars and massacres due to illness and starvation. And despite those figures, depending who you ask, the man could be a revered hero, a feared dictator or even a reviled traitor.

That makes this image a perfect illustration of the remarkably fine line between funny and clever. Context is key, right?

Oliver Cromwell: My potatoes bring all the micks to the yard and they're like, that famine was hard. Damn right, that famine was hard. I could feed you, but you'll have to starve...

At least the first guy’s not in the UK and constantly being referred to as Jamaican, even though he’s from London, right?

"Everyone keeps referring to me as African American.  I'm from the UK!"  "They keep calling Chinese. But I'm actually Korean." "They keep calling me Drunk.  I'm just Irish!"

Note: Just had to give Paul @ URLyBits a bit of Hell. 😉
