You too drunk to listen?

I know I drink.  I drink often.

I drink like it’s a sport; like it is a science. What is it with some people that they need an excuse, why do you need a holiday to get your drink on? “It’s New Years Eve, let’s Party”! “It’s Cinco De Mayo!” “It’s Thanksgiving, let’s hide from our twisted family behind a bottle of Seagrams!” Whatever happened to, “It’s Thursday, I have a job that I hate,” or “It’s Friday and I know I am not getting laid”? Whatever, I’m still in.

But let’s take a moment to find the real Irish in celebration of our Saint Patrick.

Let’s see… oh yes, the shamrock, a registered trademark of Ireland (seriously)…Some say
that when he wasn’t chasing snakes, Saint Patrick himself used this little wonder of nature
to visually represent to holy trinity while selling the new Christian religion to the pagans. I
suppose that was before Americans adopted it as one of their symbols for debauchery on March 17th…let’s
move on.
Corned beef and cabbage, what could be more Irish? Or not. OK, it’s an Irish-American
thing so I guess it’s close. You see in Ireland it’s “Bacon and Cabbage”, which to us here in
the USA would be more like “Canadian Bacon and Cabbage.” But since we’re American we will not be including Canada in this celebration.
I know, it’s the Blarney Stone. Now that is Irish. So, let me get this straight… I’m going to
Ireland, out to the countryside to the castle…now you want me to hang upside down while
some geezer holds my ankles to keep me from dropping to my death, just so I can put a lip
lock on a chunk of rock that has been kissed more times than Madonna’s ass? Do they not
have herpes in Ireland?
No wonder we go straight to the drink. Besides trying to disinfect the lips, it is way too difficult
to come up with something to celebrate that is more exciting than a IRA bombing or an new
album from U2, neither of which are politially correct to discuss in public. So let’s get to it and
toast the great Saint of Ireland by getting trashed and blowing green cheer onto the
sidewalks of the world.

Go ahead and add some food coloring to your drink and dye your river green, you’ll look great in a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirt.

Pin on a shamrock, drop the needle on your favorite U2 single, eat your Corned Beef and Cabbage. and put a Leprechaun in your pocket.

What the hell, it’s Thursday and I’ll be drinking anyway so, might as well have some music to play us out, hence this playlist. But don’t forget to wear something green today, I can see you…and I have pliers in my pocket.

    My reason for hiding in a pub in the ‘burbs Thursday night was to escape the strip “before the streets run green with puke.”
    Great post, as per always.
