Happy Saint Patty's Day!:trink26:arty2::friday::alcoholic::beerchug2:
Kegs and eggs. 7 AM.
Happy Happy to all.
Don't forget to get your buy one get one Quarter Pounder with Cheese for 25 cents today.
I'm not Irish and I don't celebrate this holiday, I could fucking care less.
I don't drink so maybe that is why I don't celebrate today.
Tripod - do me a favour as a fellow human being and go read something about St.Patrick (a real historical person). You'll find surprising little about alcohol.
In Ireland Patrick's Day is Mass in the morning and a parade for the kiddies in the afternoon - some people have a drink of the evening, some don't. The vast majority of the drunken louts falling about Temple Bar and Grafton Street tonight will be tourists.
An excerpt from a prayer attributed to Patrick, a small reminder of the original meaning of today - for me and the likes of me anyway.
ST. PATRICK'S BREASTPLATE
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
If anyone finds me mentioning Christ offensive then just avert your eyes. Just because some shitty things have been done in his name doesn't mean he's happy about it.
Christ be with you.
Praise the Welsh Saint of Ireland :biggrin1:
Praise the Irish traders who captured him and provided his best career move.
Not forgetting the intervening escape and return. :wink:
Why wasn't Jesus born in Ireland?
Because they couldn't find a virgin, nor three wise men.
Today, I'm going to have some green beer.
Not Irish at all, I understand.
But my (confused) 25 per cent Irish blood is calling.
Couple a Irish jokes:
Sorry if they offend any self-righteous folks.
Paddy: Didja here what happened Donal?!
Donal: No, Paddy....What!
Paddy: The IRA have just blown up the Blarney Stone!
Donal: Saints Preserve us! Is there anything left?
Paddy: Nuthin' but BLARNEY RUBBLE!:biggrin1:
John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, 'Here's to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wife!'
That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night!
He went home and told his wife, Mary, 'I won the prize for the Best toast of the night.'
She said, 'Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?'
John said, 'Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife.'
'Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!' Mary said.
The next day, Mary ran into one of John's drinking buddies on the street corner.
The man chuckled leeringly and said, 'John won the prize the other night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary.'
She said, 'Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know, he's only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come.'
Aren't the 'Scots' from Ireland? :wink:
