Default Polar Bears are Irish!

I always thought they talked funny. Now we know. They all descended from an Irish mama bear about 30 thousand years ago.

Actually a polar bear's skin is black, their fur is hollow and reflects light so as to give the appearance of being white. I remember reading this in a Scientific America over 20 years ago. (I can't remember my wedding anniversary, but I can remember obscure facts )

The Irish are, after all, the "Lost Tribe" so you can never be totally certain.

The cuisines are similarly bad, that's true. Heavy on cabbage and potatoes and boiled tough meats.
