What's Up with these Irish Guys?

They were already importing cosmetic from France 2300 years ago!

Top News Article | Reuters.co.uk: "LONDON (Reuters) - The preserved remains of two prehistoric men discovered in an Irish bog have revealed a couple of surprises --- one used hair gel and the other stood 6 foot 6 inches high, the tallest Iron Age body discovered.

'He would have been a giant...the other man was quite short, about 5 foot 2 inches,' said Ned Kelly, head of antiquities at the National Museum of Ireland.

'The shorter man appeared to attempt to give himself greater stature by a rather curious headdress which was a bit like a Mohican-style with the hair gel, which was a resin imported from France,' Kelly told BBC radio."

And they were both drunk.

That sort of answers an eternal question for me. I read about people doing awful things (like the doo doo guy), and I always wonder where these people come from. Do they come from another planet, and can we send them back? Have there always been people this mean, this creepy? Then I read how these two Irishmen are believe to have died, and I realize it's been going on forever.
