Guilty Pleasures Recycled – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Here’s my post from last year!  

Don’t forget to drink responsibly.  And eat corned beef and cabbage responsibly.  Just like with alcohol, your consuming too much cabbage is detrimental to the health of everyone around you.

Tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s day where nearly everyone puts on the green and becomes drunken, ginger leprechauns for a day!

Did you know that St. Patrick, the man who we celebrate every March 17th was actually English?  In fact, the first time he went to Ireland was when he was kidnapped and forced to live as a slave for six years.  He eventually escaped to England and became a priest, but returned later to bring Christianity to the Irish masses.

One of the legends surrounding this great man was that he drove all of the snakes out of Ireland.  Since then, scientists  have come to the conclusion that there never were any snakes there.   Damn scientists, always taking the fun out of everything. 

Personally, I like to think of him as an old school Samuel L Jackson.

I tell you what, if I was some unwashed Irish heathen I’d certainly convert to Christianity if I saw this.

Getteth away thou motherfucking serpents, be gone from this holy motherfucking island. (awesomestories.com)

So, although this isn’t remotely Irish, I present this St. Patrick-inspired Guilty Pleasure.

    What’s funny is this is very, very much like my St. Patrick’s day post, except mine’s very mopey and whiny and complainy. So, good job, you.

    I wonder why they came up with the whole snake thing? Weird.
    Well turning the day into a drinking holiday makes just as much sense I guess. Nice reference to Sam J 😛
