    And lo, the Leprechauns of the Lord emerged from their hidey holes and waxed wroth upon the Children of America, beating their knees and groinal regions most grievously with lumpy shillelaghs for their Crimes and Trespasses against both the Lord and Nature for their Sinful admixture of FD&C Green to the beer of the land.   And God did smite the Children of America with boils and hangovers for daring to impersonate Irishmen upon the saint’s day of Padraig the Welshman.Report

      Trifle not with the Green Crap, nor with those who imbibe it, for the Lord hath forbidden it.  For as St Urho did cast forth the Grass-Hopples into utter darkness and evict them from the Land of Sky Blue Waters, so shall the Impious be cast forth from the Land of the Free, they and all their plastic derby hats, yea and their little plastic four leaf’d clovers as well.Report

    I always feel a little glum around St. Paddy’s Day. Mostly because my ancestry is English. English, and German, with extraordinary consistency. It reminds me of my boring roots. I like to say “I was born to be boring and to some degree or another oppressing.”Report
