throw better parties and 'know how to have a good time':
I think I love Irish partying more than I love Irish jokes.
For good measure, here's an Irish joke:
Murphy is driving through the countryside when he sees Paddy trying to row a boat through a field of hay.
"You idiot," shouts Murphy. "It's fools like you that give the Irish a bad name. I'd come and get you if I could swim!"
