So, going back to the question at hand... I think my mother's side of the family is the most shameless, and I'm sure all my cousins will agree with me on this one. Let me break it down for you so you understand where I'm coming from lol.
I'll start off with Fiona, the boss of the house. In my family, she'd be my mother's older sister. The first born of the family. She is the "never to be messed with" type, but yet so kind loving and sweet... her name is Margaret, but we call her "Dedo". I think the name came from one of the kids who couldn't pronounce Margaret, I'm not sure how it came about. She is a sober Fiona though - doesn't drink nor smoke, just on a natural high lol.
Lip in the series reminds me more of mother, the "don't mess with me" and "fuck you" attitude that I like to think I possess, I got it from my momma beesh! Her siblings call her "Ziyashunqa" which means "don't play with fire"... she is a beast I tell you. She is a smart, business headed woman and street smart as well.
Liam, would then be my uncle Bebe, may his soul rest in peace. I say this, because I remember when they (siblings) had their squabbles my other uncles would tease him and say that he was adopted.We (me and my cousins) still don't know if this is true or if they were just saying it out of spite, and I sure damn ain't going to ask my mom or Dedo lol.
Carl reminds me of my other uncle Gendi, the black sheep in the family, may his soul rest in peace. He spent most of his life in prison, and was proud of it. Like Carl, being unruly was a "thing" for him. He once got beaten up by the community (abo-vimbani vibes) and when we (the family) were begging them to stop, he just stood there, sort of like he was enjoying it.
And then... saving the best for last lol, Mr Frank Gallagher. There's always that one uncle in the family, that's forver drunk and saying all those nasty things that "normal" people won't say out loud... that's my uncle Mandla, we (my cousins and I) call him "Bhut' Mandla".
He is my hero, I think I become him every time when I get drunk lol. He drinks 24/7 and always has a story or two to tell. He once rented out his room (outside bedroom) to a foreigner and slept in an old wardrobe that was outside the house, just so he can have money to buy booze. He also stole a flock of chickens while working at a farm and kept them in his closet, fed them nicknacks that he also stole from the farm, just so he could sell them and buy booze.... but guess what happened to the chikcens? They all died lol. He does his laundry wearing sun-shades – claims his washing powder is too bright. I can go on and on and on and on about his madness lol. But I still love him, he is my special and fave uncle.
I know I've left out Debby, Grammy and Sheils lol - but these are the the characters that came close when comparing with the characters in my family. If you haven't watched the series you won't get this post and I'm sorry for your my friend.
