Nobody’s Happy St. Patty’s Day Message.
After you have read Angela’s Ashes, and wondered why when the Irish ran out of potatoes, they didn’t just go catch some fish— when you see this dance you know why they starved. Obviously, the Irish don’t like to move very far when they walk. In fact, they prefer to take steps in one spot, so as to be near the closest keg of beer.
How did the Irish come up with this dance? Where the bars so small that no one dared to dance out of their little space, least they find themselves outside in the mud?
Whatever the reason, it’s fun to watch…and it also gave me a good idea. If we demanded that every welfare recipient under the age of 45 had to perform a RIVER DANCE every time they applied for their check, we’d have a lot of very slim welfare recipients in Mississippi, the fattest state in the union. Michelle is going about this weight loss thing the wrong way. Make all the kids in grade school learn to River Dance.
An hour of this, and we’d have a bunch of skinny kids. They could then go home and eat whatever they wanted–whole bags of potato chips.
Look. There is not one fat person in that line.
Having said that…St. Patty’s Day in St. Louis IS the biggest celebration here in town. No one here can afford to get drunk on New Year’s Eve anymore. The expensive hotel packages cost too much. But on St. Patty’s day, everyone goes downtown, watches the parade, and gets as drunk on less than thirty dollars.
AND SO…I ask you–Was this a good day for the Republicans to have their caucuses in Missouri? The parade starts at 10am. So do the caususes. So when the working man gets up in the morning does he go..”Hey…I’ve worked all week…let’s to sit in to the caucuses for 3 hours and get our country back!” (Somebody in the Romney camp thought of this one, since Santorum won the vote.)
OR…does he get up and say, “It’s St. Patty’s DAY…ALL my friends are going downtown! Green BEER! Let’s go! “
No, republicans are not as smart as democrats…because the democrats are staging Wall Street Protests all over the US today, the one day everyone goes downtown to drink. It’s the only day they feel SAFE going downtown. The protesters will have a big audience, and most of those people will be…stumbling. There will be many fist fights not reported, because it’s our right to fight on St. Patty’s day! Right?
The Irish people came to America in droves…and they got on the police forces, and built New York, and gave us the Kennedy’s…..and, I’m not so sure what to say about that, but–it’s a day to be happy. I’m happy. People need to drink green beer if it makes them happy I say.
Personally, I like this videos because of the drumming in the beginning. You might like the redhead…which may I add, is an endangered spices. So, have a Happy St. Patty’s day! And go ahead…try to River Dance.
Nobody is going to laugh if you do
