Sun literally melting our heads

Irish people have now permanently changed due to the hot weather, according to startling new scientific research. Professor Chortz Sochsunsantal and Professor Mustapha Muphintop have been monitoring Irish people's brains in the sunshine and they say that after having sunny weather for an unprecedented length of time, Irish people are now fundamentally different.

"After two weeks, weather becomes climate and our brains permanently change," Prof Muphintop told the Sunday Independent last night. "It is to do with brain plasticity and meltiness. It is as if inside your heads have literally been melted by the heat and you have evolved." DNA testing done for the research indicates that Irish people are now 44pc Latin. And the boffins say that if the good weather continues for another two weeks we could become more than half-Latin and that is when real change will occur.

"People will stop going to work, and will start propositioning women on the street," says Prof Muphintop. "There may also be outbreaks of dancing. Irish people already have certain Latin or Southern European personality traits like blaming the Germans for everything, expecting the EU to bail them out all the time, and not wanting to take refugees. Indeed, the Irish also have certain Latin American traits, like having the same old socialist for president for 14 years."
