Hey, is this the thread where people get irrationally offended by incorrectly shortening a version of a word in a language almost nobody speaks anymore?  If so, cool.

I'm a quarter Irish.  I love most things Irish, boiled dinners not included, and really don't get wtf people's panties are all in a bunch for.  So the holiday has been bastardized into "Wear Green, Drink and Piss Off Prudes" Day, so farking what?  Like it was something sacred, or special or anything other than a religious holiday for the patron saint of Ireland.  So people have a themed party day, what's the big problem? It's like it's killing the entire farking island every time someone orders a green beer.

Get a hobby, get a life, whatever it takes to not be such a stick in the mud.

I have celebrated two St. Patrick's Days in NYC with a friend of mine and I had a great time.  We used to go to Scruffy Duffy's on 8th Avenue.  My memories, hazy as they are, consist of laughing almost continuously from 10am until 4am the next day.  It was just a really good day out.

shotbyadam: The fact is, it was the 20-something GIRL who drank an ENTIRE BOTTLE OF WINE at dinner.


Maybe it's just me, but that doesn't strike me as being excessive.

You went over the top to far, I'm going to give you a 6/10

Good effort though

Sorry blogger but not only will I not get off your lawn, I'm going to take a piss on it. A bit later, I'll probably throw up on it too. If you're lucky, I won't take a big green dump on it though I can't make any promises.

I agree, unless she was 4 feet tall and 75 lbs...in that case ID required.

The only thing I enjoy about St Patty's Day is being able to buy 8 packs of Guinness for 9.99 for 2 weeks prior and 1 week after the wretched day.

Crewmannumber6: Nana's Vibrator: Why would anyone hate the holiday where 2 people will get in a fistfight over an argument about who's more Irish?
It's always a 1/8th vs. a 1/4, and guaranteed one of them is more Italian than Irish.  Because Boston, that's why.

100% Born in Dublin, family in Dundalk but grew up here, so I'd get my ass kicked there. Besides my fighting stance is the fetal position.


You wouldn't have to since you're passive about it, but it'd be high comedy to see someone try and start with you and then have to respond to "I was born in Dublin"

/and hope it's not "Belfast"

100% Irish descent, and I hate St Patrick's Day with an undying passion. Too many reasons to list them all, but  up there on the list are the suburban frat boys and their vacuous twunts stumbling around with green plastic hats and flashing glasses.

Don't try to hide your alcoholism behind my heritage, you sloppy, soulless waste of space. And if you walk too close to me with that big, goofy, green & white striped Dr. Seuss hat, I'll introduce you to my Irish-American forearm.

A good day to you all!

shotbyadam: Anyone who says that the drinking stereotypes aren't nice has NEVER been to Ireland. My god those folks know how to drink. Hell, they even serve beer in vending machines over there! I remember I was in Dublin once and was having dinner with a friend. There was a table next to us with a young couple finishing their dinner and they had an empty bottle of wine at the table. I asked if they enjoyed the wine and the guy said, "Oh, I wasn't drinking. I'm on some medication right now so I can't drink this week." The fact is, it was the 20-something GIRL who drank an ENTIRE BOTTLE OF WINE at dinner. So when people tell me that drinking stereotypes are rude and insensitive, they are farking morons.


Wine is only sold in single serve containers

I'm a little lost.  Holidays can be different for everyone, but pretty much:
(United States)
New Years: Alcohol
Martin Luther King, Jr.: Dreams
Valentine's Day: Expectation Indifference
President's Day: New Cars
St. Patrick's Day: Alcohol
Easter: pastel sucks
Memorial Day: Grilled Meat
Flag Day: squid
July 4th: exploding
Labor Day: vacation
Halloween: sluts
Veterans Day: dodge ball
Thanksgiving:  I hate my uncle
Christmas:  credit cards

GhettoWinter:

Possible it was just all Americans watching the parade.  Didn't expect how many would be there. The bars in the main area of downtown felt like they could've been in an American college town that night.  I did manage to find a bar with about 200 redheads in it though.  In fact, i do remembering some jag off asking the irish bartender for an Irish Car Bomb...


What do you call them there then?

Thank you, thank you

Considering that the whole driving snakes out of Ireland thing was supposedly an allogory for getting rid of all the folk of the Olde Faith, Pagans, hedgewitches or those generally not recognized as Christian by the Catholic Church-whatever you care to call them, I have never celebrated St. Patrick's Day and most certainly never will.  Hell, I'm part Catholic too by blood and birth and you'll never see me at Mass.

///I hate corned beef and cabbage too
 
2013-03-13 05:08:11 PM
I don't really care what people do, people celebrate holidays mainly as reasons to drink, not a biggie.

I just see it more for non-Irish people to get wasted. I know corned beef isn't really a traditional dish, but it's tasty and I like it.

But I do like whiskey.  It's about the only part of my Irish heritage I retain.  That and superstition about the "wee folk". Never want to piss them off. Ever.

Isn't "Paddy" short for "Padraic" or something like that?  If so, then "Patty" would be the obvious nickname for "Patrick", eh?

/1/4 Irish
//almost never celebrate St. Patty's/St. Paddy's Day since I stopped drinking
///besides, I'm half German and never celebrate Oktoberfest either
////German-Americans are the biggest demographic group in the USA
//and Irish-Americans are the second biggest demographic group
//so you'll find a lot of German-Irish Americans in Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul
//a good German-Irish name would be "Fritzpatrick"
//anyhoo, this is my last post for a loooong time

xsarien: St. Patrick's Day is the one day of the year - even if it's a weekend - that I refuse to go out and drink. Every bar worth its salt - and some that aren't - jack their prices up to Stupid, all the idiots are out drinking themselves into hospitals, and the streets are flowing with green-tinged puke thanks to some bars serving green beer.

Tell me how this is considered a good time.


It's like complex numbers or Unix - if I have to explain to you why they're cool, you don't have the necessary skill level to understand what I'm saying.
