I have to show my partner this! We both love Stephen Colbert as we watched him since the beginning of the Colbert Report. He's American but his DNA test shows he's half Irish & half English (there's less than 5% of Welsh but he's basically those 2 halves); he also knew that from being told about it from his family members, plus they stayed in one region for hundreds of years (he's also afraid that's he's inbred; he's in very good health so I don't know he worries about that; I did his family tree with his families help & there's zero indication of this, especially in the last 100 years so I wish he would quit worrying about that; plus, the region his mother & father are from is very vast & very populated area in Texas; before that they migrated from Jamestown, VA, & Massachusetts, which he also makes fun of latter as my father is from Worcestor, MA, like Conan O'Brien, but doesn't have an accent, & my dad's first generation Czech/Polish). For whatever reason, he prefers to be Scottish instead of Irish. His first names is James so maybe that is the reason. He puts down my German/Austrian side (my German/Austrian family fought against psycho Hitler & his cronies) & my Catholic side. He also puts down my Polish side because he says there's must be a reason for all the jokes (I'm used to it, though, since my maiden name is Polish but you would think people might think I still could be of other ethnic backgrounds possibly - esp. in the U.S.; oh well, I'm proud of my Polish heritage; they went through literal Hell to get here & they're not Jewish; I'm not taking away from their plight at all, plus my paternal side helped a lot of Jewish people hide; I appreciate my ancestors were shot dead or shot at versus a slow death but it still sucked for all; I married someone who was Jewish who is now deceased). I think he disassociates with his Irish side because a lot are still Catholic. I joke with him because his family just came to the states (before the colonies became officially united) right after protestants became the majority religion in England. Anyhow, he's more religious than me & constantly pokes flaw out of the Catholic religion. I know there are horrific flaws; in the church but there are some good people that are associated with it too (i.e. Stephen Colbert; who sometimes teaches Sunday School on the side; something I attended all the way up until my Confirmation; my own father started the Young Adult Catholic Club of South Florida in the early 60s after serving in Korea for 8 yrs, where ALL faiths/backgrounds were invited as members as well; he met my Mom there & married her in 1965 and their still together today ). I don't agree that not all priests can be married (the church I went to never told me that gays would go to Hell & you can be divorced, just maybe not bring it up; they realize that the Vatican is behind & said the Bible can be open to interpretation; I go to some other Christian churches and I get you're instantly going to Hell for this or that; the God I believe in is not that judgmental nor needs to be idolized 24/7; I believe he wants us to treat others as we would want to be ourselves; do are very best to take care of what he created...to me that includes the universe AND gay people, etc.; not passed judgement on others...just only to protect ourselves when necessary - i.e. when you're being used you can say that's not a good person to associate with, etc.)/If I'm going to Hell for that than Heaven isn't all what it's cracked up to be, in my opinion. Sorry so lengthy!

One more thing, my partner wishes he was Italian above all (nothing wrong with that, my daughter is Irish, English, Italian, Spanish & Cherokee Indian from her father side). He also hates his skin complexion. I told him if he's Italian then there's a good chance he would be Roman Catholic too.

Someone who went to my primary school was called Siobhan, except, when her parents named her, they thought that name was actually pronounced Sy-o-ban, so that was her name, and she had to correct teachers whenever they pronounced it technically the correct way, but not the way her parents had taught her.

Sorry, Irish people, but your names' pronunciation is just crazy!

So this is a 'popular' talk show? With a host barely lets his guest talk and interrupts at times when they try to speak to make it even more awkward? Even Saoirse asked him to 'stop doing that just listen for this bit' because apparently he was talking too much!! I'd feel embarrassed for him.

I used to translated my titles and descriptions into Irish. You know how many people used those translations? None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nein. Nyet. So I stopped translating into Irish. The other videos are still there translated, but I stopped new translations. The same with Scots Gaelic and Welsh, and others, no one uses them on YouTube.
Zom Bee Nature (4 hours ago)
+Leann K Google Translate is far worse than a piece of shit! 💩 I was actually asked by people to stop using it to translate into Swedish, Polish, and Latvian. And told it often comes out strange in German and Dutch. And that Japanese is too hard for it, but not actually told to stop using it. And oddly, it struggles to translate into Spanish because so many people have told it conflicting words to translate into.
Leann K (5 hours ago)
In German the word "None" would be "Keine" or you could say "Niemand" what means "nobody" ... but "Nein" means "No". But I guess if you type in "None" at Google translator it actually could say "Nein" beacause Google translate is a piece of shit... :)

Why would anyone sacrifice their self dignity and appear on this asshole's show? Why hasn't someone chained Stephen Colbert to the back of a train and dragged him across the country yet? Pretty sure I just gave someone an idea. Can't wait for the video.
