GREEN FOR A DAY




HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

I hope all of your snakes are non-poisonus.

I hope your St. Patrick's Day tree is trimmed.

I hope your St. Patrick's Day presents are under the tree.

And I hope you don't fall for President BO (the child president)'s "green" jobs agenda.

My English tutor oft' tells me a blarney tale of the time he played in a Pub band. On one occasion someone from the audience yelled, "Do something Irish". To which the bassist responded. "Okay. At the break we'll go out and blow up a school bus full of children".
This was in the early eighties, during 'The Troubles'.

Did you know that St. Patrick was a Welshman? Not Irish at all!

I once had a conversation with two recent Yankee high school graduates. They suggested I should 'go on Jeopardy' 'cause I knew Ireland was an island! Apparently this geographic fact was news to them. I didn't have the heart to tell them that there are actually two Irelands sharing that island.
See? I used to be considerate. Which brings me to my final point, Joe? You spelled 'poisonous' incorrectly.

I'm with you Sir, No politics on Saint Paddy's Day.

Plenty of time for that tomorrow.
Have a Happy Day today.

And Aquarians Love To Cuddle .
St. Patrick was kidnapped from Wales when he was just a wee child and taken to Ireland where he was held captive for many, many years. And Irishman worth his worth in beer knows that.

".....And Irishman worth his worth in beer knows that......"

What does an Irishman worth his worth in beer think about 'The Troubles'?

Or about the 'Magdalene Laundries'?

Only that it is know as the Magdalene Asylum. And something to do with prostitutes..

I don't know much more about it.

Nice play A Pissed Off Irishmen, worthy of your compatriots; Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, but you know as well as I do what it really was. Using the word 'Asylum' gave it an air of legitimacy which in retrospect it certainly did not warrant.
A shame to Ireland, the UK and the times.

You're not really Irish, are you?
Yins is a Yankee who may, or may not, actually possess some wretched Irish genes, right?
No true Irishman, from the Republic or the North, could possibly ignore my 'The Troubles' quip.
Sheesh, even those English Chavs or a Scottish Neds would react.

You seem to think that you're smarter then us poor Yankee devils, I wonder if you'd help me out with a problem... I have a warts on my Penis that I'd like you to diagnose.

Aquarians Love To Cuddle said...

Oh dear, Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Though yins being a Librul Yankee and all, I'm not sure the 'H' of the HPV applies.
I suspect you contracted your verrucae after having unprotected 'knowledge' of some conservative slattern - that'll learn ya!

I'm not smarter, necessarily, but I am usually quite a bit more knowledgeable. I brandish a planet-wide cosmopolitan world view. You Yankees, at least the ones who are convinced that there actually is a world outside their borders, are a tad navel-gazingly Americentric. Not your fault, you do rule the world after all - the rest of us are mere support workers.

How did you know I was a physician?

Leave it to Joe Politico to take such a Wonderful Holiday - not that I care about it :] - and turn it into something dirty - LIKE POLITICS.

What a beautiful Post - Joe. I only wish I had the capability to do such Amazing things to my Really Cool Blog.
~~~

btw - Joe - Follow up on the People's Park here at the Large Liberal Campus of IU - near which I find myself residing -for now.

Walked past the People's Park today with daughter - and 3 g-kids-& all the good stuff was over - Joe.

Tents gone - parks clean - the only thing that remained was the Really Cool Graffiti that graced the sidewalks and adjoining building - great graffiti - and the ghostly echo of the strains of Blowin' In The Wind - when those OWSers and I joined hands and determinedly sang together.

::sigh::

Thanks Joe.

and don't consume too much green beer

Well check it out, Aquarius thinks she's hot stuff for knowing about the Magdelene Laundries.

And Mr. Potato Head doesn't know it was a home for unwed mothers that held them as slave labor. Just a hint of the gfts of the perverted Calvinist strain of Catholicism from the Irish.

'Mr. Potato Head'

Good One ducky.

Aquarians Love To Cuddle, why don't you try to stop being such an pompous arse?
I've been reading Joe's blog for a long time and it was really a great one until you got here. I have no respect for you and I doubt if anyone else around here does.

Joe said...

ALTC: "Joe? You spelled 'poisonous' incorrectly."

Ooops! (I hope I spelled THAT correctly).

What I might think is of no consequence - you know that Bo. The question is, do you think I'm hot stuff, or merely tepid gimcrack?

I dare not try as I might just succeed.

".....I've been reading Joe's blog for a long time and it was really a great one until you got here....."

Do you think I like being here? I am only here because it is a condition of my parole.

".....I have no respect for you and I doubt if anyone else around here does......"

You are not meant to respect me. In fact you are forbidden to do so.
If anyone else 'round here does respect me, even in the slightest, I have failed miserably and it is back to the slammer!

For a Yankee, yes, but the Queen's English would require that you to throw in at least one 'U' somewhere:

"Oouops!"
