happy St. patty's day indeed!!!
Saint Patrick's Day! Have a drink!
My dad was 100% Irish. Because of his father's extreme alcohol abuse, he was a teetotaler and constantly railed at me about the evils of drinking. However, the wore the green on St. Patrick's Day, and always expressed pride at being Irish. He was even very proud of his (bad) Irish temper. What a guy! This might be one of the many reasons that I grew up so fucked up.
was born in Belfast.....c'mon five o'clock so I can have me some
Why do we celebrate St. Patrick's day? Honestly, I do not know. What is he the patron saint of? And why do people insist on wearing green and drinking green beer?
we irish always need another reason to drink!in the spirit of the day I am drinking green Gatorade.and if anyone tries to pinch me they will get a bullet thru a knee cap...
I like drinking beer no matter what color it is, I don't discriminate.
Aren't you American? Is it a hertiage thing? I get so confused on these days we celebrate other country's holidays. Cinco de mayo comes to mind as well. But then again I disagree with Mothers, Fathers, Veterans, Memorial, Valentines, etc. days. I look at those holidays as amatuer hour. If those people meant anything at all, they would be celebrated as much as you value them.
I guess this is where the flames start?
It's just a celebration of Ireland. Genealogically speaking, people of Irish descent are the second largest self-reported ethnic group in the United States. One in six people in the US can trace their ancestry to Ireland.
it is a heritage holiday.and if the beaners can celebrate drincho de mucho then i get st paddys day!
I admit I am ignorant of this holiday so here is me sounding gullible: is he really the patron saint of beer?
I will read more of the articles later. I have to get back to work.
mucho appreciato (thats thanks a lot in ebear speak!!)
but I am tentatively scheduled to fly to Baghdad tomorrow, then one night there, onto Dubai and scheduled to touch down in Chicago for 4 hours awaiting my flight to Wilkes-Barre, PA for a week there then out to Tucson. I will be hammered in the Dubai airport first, sleep, then drink again in Chicago (arrive early, so Bloody Marys), then onto Beer for the flight home!!! All in celebration of St. Patrick's Day (even if it is late!)
than never Pkato, I never cared much for getting on a plane
Happy St Patty's Day! Well Well Well, there just couldn't be a hotter redhead than this. I swore off redheads after divorcing one. This one I could definitely make up for lost time! wow
He is the patron Saint that led the snakes out of ireland with music from a flute, thus saving the country from the slithering little bastards...
tce2519, Are we still talking about redheads? Just asking!!
This is a daughter from Mr.Bean England's famous komedian.
He created the Mr. Bean character - one of the funniest ever on TV.
He also acted in Black Adder, and in some show that was about a bunch of cops in the most fucked up precinct in England.
For me, he almost ranks up there with the Monty Python gang.
Speaking of them, how about the show about the All England Twit Contest, or the one about the Department of Funny Walks, or the one about lumberjacks.
