Happy Saint Patricks Day

Consider this an open thread for Irish-American clichès. I'll start:

May the luck of the Irish be with ye.

I heard everyone really got into this holiday this year. Why, even Ellen DeGeneres came out and announced that she's Gaelic.

Why is Ireland always so overpopulated?

Cause the Capital city is always Dublin!

Or is it because they're Catholic? I always mix that up.

Actually, having been to Ireland and in the quaint town of Galway on St. Patrick's Day, I can honestly say I had some great "crack" (Irish for "a bloody good time!") and I did in fact drink lots of beer. I would have drank more, but the pubs were so crowded with young beautiful women and their mates that one could hardly get to the bar with out climbing over the top of other people. It was impossible to pass out and fall down, because the pressure of the crowd would simply hold you up.

What a coincidence! I, too, have had some great "crack" (as in the Irish sort) drinking lots of Guinness and Kilkenney beer in a crowded Irish pub while watching a football match between Ireland and...some other country. I was packed in amongst a crowd that was mostly of Irish stock. That had to be some of the most musical-sounding banter I've ever heard.

The funny thing about it was that it was in Tokyo.

Okra Cola?

Good 'Crack' doesn't translate well in the states. It'll get you laid, arrested or elected. Take your pick.

Laid, arrested, or elected? Hey, two out of three sounds like good odds for success to me!
