.......another little known fact is that all Irishmen are the descendants of Welshmen who could swim.
And believe it or not, the better half was quite proficient at all this stuff when she was a kid. So was her sister. The last time they tried it was post Christmas dinner festivities about three years ago. One fell over and broke an ornament, and the other twisted an ankle. Through it all, their 80 year old Dad was fiddling an almost perfect 'Siege of Venice' throughout, despite being worse the wear for a snort or two and not having played anything for five years or more.

I have a bit of Irish in me big toe, I think. I always enjoy the holiday.
You know that whole thing about St. Patrick "chasing all the snakes out of Ireland"? That's called a metaphor. The "snakes" were pagans, atheists & slutty women. And he didn't just "chase them out". He killed them.
What a waste, pagans atheists and slutty women know how to throw a really good party. (Perhaps not Ricky Gervais, he's a prick, actually, forget about the atheists, I'll stick with the pagans and slutty women.)
