This whole business of 'kiss my Irish ass' has me a bit puzzled.

It seems so haughty, flying in the face of something you'd be better off not too.

For example after 9/11 and the hero-ication of the NYFD there was some type of a televised memorial event when a large red-faced (seemed drank to me) man in a dress fireman's uninform was making a speech which he ended with "they can kiss my royal Irish ass!"

I was a little taken aback and wrote it off to East Coast hijinks until a day or two later a jet airliner dropped right into his neighborhood.
