It's important to be drunk on days that end in "y":

Christmas Day
Valentine's Day
International Women's Day
Earth Day
Flag Day
The Fourth of July
Etc.

Then there are those pesky days that don't end in "Y":

Rosh Hashanah
Yom Kippur
Festivus

I mostly blame the Jews, but especially Jerry Seinfeld.

And each of those words has a certain degree of drunkenness associated with it.
 
2017-03-18 02:52:17 AM  
Only one I'm sure of is "potato buggered".
 
2017-03-18 03:18:48 AM  
But when you're drunk on St. Patty's, you're not just "drunk" -- you're "boiled in the bag."

Call me picky if you like but as far as I'm concerned anyone who calls it 'St. Patty's Day' has no right to tell anyone about anything Irish.

Why does there need to be a holiday about drinking?

/every day is a holiday
//most minutes are holidays too!

"The Fear" is one of my favorite Irish turns of phrase.

They forgot pie-eyed, primed to the muzzle, put to bed with a shovel, rum dumb, tight as an owl, and kneeling and reeling.

What a hard drinking Irishman might look like


He looks worse in recent pictures


it breaks my heart

You beat me to it. I was just about to go into my annual rant. Hell, I will anyway.

"Paddy", not "Patty" is short for Patrick. The Irish form of the name is "Pádraig" (which means Patrician, or of the Patrician social class, which St. Patrick was.) Pádraig, Paddy. NOT Patty, USA Today.

Thanks to realheadhoncho for this one.
Are you Irish and angry today at America co-opting your culture for a drinking holiday?  Or is your hangover farking with you?  I have seen a ton of pointless shiatty posts in my time here, and yours sure is one of them.

I prefer -
shiat housed
Fighting drunk
Waffle stomped
Shwaysted
Crooked
Tipple ripple nippled
Entering the era of funk
Prepared to praise porcelain
Arrested.

I will end on the last one, that is the best.

Why would an Irish person be offended over the depiction of a leprechaun? Leprechauns aren't people. The most offensive thing about Lucky is that his coat is the wrong color.

And, what the fark is up with the new marshmallows? No more green clover? Is that supposed to be a shooting star? Shameful.

Gee-eyed, bolloxed, rat-arsed, pissed, three sheets ( to the wind), off his/her box, bulletproof

I'm an 8th generation Irish American.   I none of the cousins that I know drink alcohol.
the stereo types of the Irish seem so strange to me.

I had a Girlfriend who dressed up in a green outfit covered with shamrocks when she went to work in an Irish themed pub, but she was Scottish/French

I wore green when I was in the Marines

8 generations removed from Ireland seems to be enough to leave you out of touch

8th generation.  Really?
8th generation.  In America.
8th.
You are full of shiat unless you prove otherwise, I am 5th generation and we rolled hard on the slow boat to push west back in the day.  My grampa gramps sold bootleg whiskey to the first mayor of Denver back in the day.  8th my ass.

Then they can write the rest of the sign in Irish to, eh?

There isn't a real word for extreme hammered stinking drunk, because by that point you're incapable of saying real words. Unless you'd count the onomatopoeia of "yshfrrmmbbllBLLLEEUUUURRRRRGGGHHHH" as a word.
 
2017-03-18 01:04:34 PM  
WOW: It's kind of like how the Inuit have 100 words for snow.

on the piss
 
2017-03-18 11:12:34 PM  

Gway: on the piss


To split a hair (of the dog), "on the piss" means "out drinking", rather than describing the resulting inebriation itself.
 
2017-03-19 02:19:48 AM  
beany- Sounds about right... but then again there is always context.
