Wishing all TSDenizens a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S EVERYONE..
Aye, tis a great day to be Irish! Happy Paddy's Day to all.
Can I join in, in wishing all our "mick" friends (I'm half "mick" on my mothers side,hence my password on here.) a good one.
Happy St's Day:
May there always be work for your hands to do
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.... and may you have a Great Shave today!
May the wind always be a yar back and yar trubles be fer away..
As someone said to me yesterday: Happy Day of Reinforcing Negative Irish Stereotypes.
sorry to give offense
? me? I wasn't offended. I'm not even Irish.
Oh no, just speaking in general. But glad you weren't miffed. The truth in your friend's remark made me ponder how many sterotypes were squashed into the graph comic I posted. I mean, potatoes & snakes?! Poor St. Patrick.
Speaking of St. Paddy's offenses, my boss wished us the "the luck o' the Irish," which did offend a co-worker who made him "take it back" gradeschool-style. As the Irish were famously unlucky throughout history, the "luck of the Irish" was coined in irony. A most enlightening lunch hour it was.
Happy St. Paddy's Day!
