I'll gladly seal your driveway, for a hamburger today
In light of the great Toogood parking lot assault, Slate has an interesting article on what the heck an Irish Traveler is. What is known about them is that they appear to be just normal folks who move from job to job, either doing shoddy work or, in many cases, no work at all. Also, they are terrific liars and scam artists, continually duping the unsuspecting people that come in contact with them.
I found it interesting that, in Ireland, they're refered to as "Michael Kellys". Imagine that.
