Just so you know, the snakes didn't flee Ireland because of St Patrick. It was the weather.

@roger,
.......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.

The Catholic Church officially grants an exception to the "no meat on Friday during Lent" bullshit so you can stuff yourself with corned beef on St. Patrick's Day.

No seriously. That's a thing they do. Razz

Since I last posted on this thread, I had my spit tested. I am surprisingly Irish. Already I am saying Begorrah. Happy Saint Pat's.

@edgarblythe,
I have long figured you too were Irish Edgar. It was the combination of a taste for music and lyrical things, with a stubborn, cranky belligerence and skepticism towards authority that gave you away .

Good stuff , even if some of our political views are a bit different.

Ireland gave us, what in my opinion is, the funniest sitcom ever made.

@izzythepush,
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. Cool

@jcboy,
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.)
