the biggest insult to an Irishman is to always refer to him as a Scott.

Yeah, I have a friend who insists this is true. The "Ulster Scots" are probably the source of her contention, even though they're only about 10% of the US Irish population.

I would use "wankers" because it'd be like the irish saying green beer is for the English.

...though from that, it appears he also uses the word "wanker".

The guy's a legend. And quite an angry man in general, as this round up of his top ten rants suggests.
