“I grew up all my life believing I was Irish. But thanks to Ancestry, I now know I’m just a drunk”

AncestryDNA tests for ethnicity. A popular St. Patrick’s Day joke is about a test for Irish roots.
 
“I grew up all my life believing I was Irish. But thanks to http://ancestry.com I now know I’m just a drunk” was posted on Twitter by PieGuy on March 21, 2016. “I GREW UP ALL MY LIFE BELIEVING I WAS IRISH, BUT THANKS TO ANCESTRY.COM I NOW KNOW I’M JUST A DRUNK” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Sean Su on March 16, 2018. The joke probably originated with this image.
