From the way you say it why do you care what I say?? If that shouldnt offend me then what I say shouldnt offend you.
Having lived for a great many years in Spain I found Spaniards to be a genuine people, easy to get along with and for the most part, very happy. They tell a lot of jokes and it is most always all in fun. If you got offended at their antics, you are very thin skinned. You asked me before if someone made fun of "my people" would I care. The answer is a simple no. The Irish have been made fun of by everyone for hundreds of years and we could care less. Just don't stand between us and our church or our drink (lol). Now lighten up old man. You will live longer.

oh boo hoo,
someone making fun,
grow up, take it like a man,
You grow up and take it like a man, may as well you look and act like a man. When was the last time you even played any sort of sport? The only exercise you ever done was walk to and from a jail.
