So given the week that’s in it, I thought I’d give out about one of my pet peeves – people dressed as leprechauns !  I mean, have you ever seen anything more ridiculous in your entire life as three or four grown men at a football match donning cheap sandy beards and puke green jackets and hats ?

I mean look at the state of the guy !

I hereby vow never to let any child of mine dress up like a leprechaun – even for Hallowe’en !!  The trouble is, people think its the thing to do – but as you can see from this story – dressing up as one of the wee folk will ultimately get you nowhere !!

Diddly-dee me arse !

Ah, yes, the Wearin’ O’ the Green — Downtown Denver was awash in booze and blarney. Fake Irish, guzzled, slobbered, leaned, puked and peed themselves all over the mall.

Choosing of a favorite, though, was difficult. It was a close contest, but my vote went to some born-again Christians, who stood on street corners in t-shirts, asking, “What Did St. Patrick Believe?”

This is it, I thought, the shallow end of the Irish (not) Gene Pool!

Hi Kathleen ! Glad you (sort of) enjoyed St.Patrick’s Day … we took the revolutionary step ourselves of … wait for it … not getting trashed and making a holy show of ourselves in public. And as an afterthought, you could probably sell those t-shirts over here !
