    I'm Irish so I'm genetically programmed to be working in a peat bog. If I go to the beach I have to wear SPF 1000. You open the tube and a sweater literally comes out.

Quote from memory by Conan Obrien about being pale

I joke in good fun. If you have a tan he's way paler than you

There are actually some rather swarthy people in the west of Ireland who tan surprisingly well - supposedly from Spanish genes inherited back in the day when the western ports conducted a thriving trade. I don't know where I got mine, but it's the constant envy of my sisters, who resemble ghosts most of the year and lobsters if they go out under the sun.
