The Biggest Pricks in the World


Monty Python's Life of Brian

Of course there is Biggus Dickus from Monty Python’s Life of Brian.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2K8_jgiNqUc

This is a little more serious though.  The three biggest pricks in the world probably really were.

I’m reading Scottish journalist Alistair Moffat‘s book The Scots, a Genetic History.  The three men I have in mind have the most descendants.

The first is from Ulster in Northern Ireland.  Niall of the Nine Hostages.  Twenty percent of Irish men carry his Y-Chromosome.  When Harvard Professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates was arrested, it became known both he and the arresting officer are descendants of Niall of the Nine Hostages.

The second is from Scotland.  A Viking named Somerled.  He is the founder of Clan MacDonald.  He had 500,000 descendants.

The third and biggest prick of them all is Genghis Khan.  Allegedly 8% of the Y-Chromosome between Hungary and Manchuria is his.

The biggest pricks in the world would more than prick you.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
