I just read this on the beeb’s news site.
I am simply trying to point out how hard life is for those poor individuals afflicted with the recessive gene that colours their hair that shade of red. 😉
Anyway, I think I like the joke names that they put in this article the most. Sharon Jaffa is my favourite.
The side bar on mythology also made me snigger out loud.
RED HAIR MYTHOLOGY
Redheads sacrificed in ancient Egypt
Associated with witches and vampires in Europe
Reputed to bleed more
Mary Magdalene, Adam, Judas and even Jesus depicted as redheads
My absolute favourite in the whole article though is this little gem:
“it’s unclear whose responsibility it is to monitor discrimination.
‘It is certainly not us,’ says the Commission for Racial Equality.”
More important information on the effect that being ginger can have on you can be found here.
Anyone who laughed at the poor ginger people should now hang your head in shame. Yes, I mean you. You wicked, wicked person.
