Tell me, is Saint Patrick's Day just another excuse to skip class and get drunk all day? It seems to be the reason here.

Oh, goody, somebody started a thread about St. Patrick's Day. This means I don't have to.

Okay, listen up. This part ain't humor. This is the REAL poop on St. Patty, and that famous legend about the snakes.

There aren't snakes in Ireland. Never have been.
There WERE Druids in Ireland.
They had purple snake tattoos on their arms (I don't know why, but then again I don't know why anybody gets tattoos.)
Patrick and his brethren persecuted them a great deal, essentially driving them to extinction.

Hence, the symbolism of driving the "snakes" from Ireland in actuality refers to the destruction of the original native religion.

And THAT is why, on the 17th, instead of green, I wore every scrap of Druidic stuff I could get my hands on. (And caused a stir when one of the Fundie ladies who frequents the library "mistook" my necklace pendant for a "Satanic" symbol.)

Remember the Druids.

Hopefully by skip class you're refering to university students young man. UNderage drinking cannot be condoned.

On the other hand, legal drinking should be encouraged as much as possible.

On St Patrick's day I become funny, witty, and unbelievably attracive, and possessed of great sexual magnetism. No, I do. For I have spoken

Alas, he only gets that way 20 seconds before he passes out and ruins the effect.

Damn the luck!

Actually, I've usually got my head down the toilet way before I ever pass out, so they don't see me in that undignified way.

Er, I'm not hurting my super-cool image here am I?

Okay, upon sobering up a little, this post wasn't as funny as I thought. Actually, it was a bit offensive. Well, at least to your sense of humour.

On a more serious note, it is indeed sad that the celebrationof St Patrick has been washed away in a tidal wave of green beer.

Ooh, we are Mr Party aren't we?

And it's PSY Liam, not Psi Liam. For a reason. A very cunning reason.
