Angry ginger man

Its official, ginger people are angrier than the rest of us and the red hair, eyebrows and other body hair is natures warning to stay away.

Scientists confirmed what we have all known for some time today. After 12 years of investigation and genetic profiling, Dr Sam Sturit announced that people with ginger hair had a 0.02% variation in their genetic code.

This doesn't sound like much until you consider that 99% of the genetic code of the human race is the same as a chimpanzee's.

"Tiny variations in your genetic makeup can lead to massive differences between species and as far as we are concerned, ginger people could be a differing species of modern man." said Dr Sturit.

It would seem that the Ginger Gene not only accounts for the unmanageable, firey hair but certain personality traits as well including low anger threshold and higher levels of testosterone.

"The ginger race is an angry one" continued Dr Sturit.
