Happy Irish Heritage Day!


Thank Gawd and the Baby Jesus that I have Irish blood so I can make fun of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Hey, don't give me your politically-correct gimlet eye. Them's the Rules of the Game and you know it!









Oh, thought I couldn't work superheroes into this post? Well, think again!

Hello Debra, Happy St. Patrick's Day! To celebrate, here is a link to Tom Lehrer's The Irish Ballad:

Wait! I just listened to that live performance of Lehrer's Irish Ballad, and realized that the verse about the sister was left out! Here instead is the better and intact studio version:

I’m not sure which bit of you is Irish but you have the gift of the gab.

Happy Saint Patrick's Debs. Nothing new here, I've been doing Irish flu shots all year. The unlucky leprechaun!!!!!!

Bob Slatten said...

Maybe it's just me, but I'd kiss Steve Rogers any time, Irish or not.

DEZMOND said...

Ooh, I'd love one of those green shirts, such gorgeous colour!
In other news, I wish Chris and Hiddles would shag each other!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Irish flu shots are a beautiful thing!

Frank said...

My Irish husband has become Italian by osmosis...my Italian cooking. But I do make the corned beef and cabbage once a year.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Parnassus -- Thanks for the link to "The Irish Ballad" -- I had not heard that particular little morbid ditty before, LOL!

Joanne Noragon said...

Leprechauns are clever little fellows. I'm sure the one jumped aside and came back for his bar of gold.

Adam said...

Wear green today

Well now that's what I'm willing to celebrate - my Irish Heritage. Bless you and yours for giving us a name other than that of a bloody Brit Christian who came over, unasked, invaded and destroyed all the old ways. I never understood why such a destructive creature deserved either a day named after him or a celebration. Well maybe puking green beer into the gutter is what the meddling bastard deserves. ;-)

NanaDiana said...

I smiled all the way through this, Debra. I think my favorite though was the little paper by the kid (I am sure it was a school paper) on what they would do if they found a pot of gold...tooooo funny!

Have a great St. Pat's Sunday- xo Diana

Wendy said...

So glad to be back. I've missed you!
If I found a pot of gold, I'd shit too. Then I'd pick up that entire bucket of Irish Flu Shots. Happy St Patrick's Day!

Leanna said...

Ahh Loki. The man of our dreams. I'd wish you a happy St Patrick's day but I'm a pagan. So a pox on all religious nuts and their saints.

Guillaume said...

Happy Ts Paddy's Day!

I'm with Molly. The BEST St. Patty's Day artwork ever!

Birdie said...

Martha said...

The unlucky leprechaun! BAHAHAHAHA

Ur-spo said...

I am all for the Iris Flu shots you show here, never mind the coffee though.

Bea said...

Santa going incognito made me laugh!

baili said...

hulk one hahaha

you are soooooooooooooooooo FUNNY!

so enjoyed the all fun here dear Debra!

happy st Patrick's day my friend!
hugs!

The Captain said...

My wife is of Irish decent, I've never gotten the obsession with Paddy's Day though. We don't do the same on St David's, St Andrew's or St George's.

I'll stick to celebrating my Viking heritage by celebrating Odin's day - benefit being that it's weekly!

Infidel753 said...

They credit St. Patrick with driving the snakes out of Ireland, but there were never any snakes in Ireland in the first place, so I guess that was just PR.

Anne Marie: I always wore orange on 3/17 to piss off the nuns in school

Doubtless the noblest cause for which the color has ever been used.

Kirk said...

Happy belated St Patrick's Day.

e said...

You are on a roll with the memes! Love these, some real chuckles amongst them!

Rommy said...

I'm old and get sloshed on wine coolers. Have a couple of drinks for me, because I can't hold 'em at all.

Jan/JFM said...

Been Irish all of my life and I have never seen a Leprechaun ๐Ÿ€☘๐Ÿ€
But...I have seen green ๐Ÿบ ☘ ๐Ÿป

Magic Love Crow said...

These are brilliant! LOL! Thanks Deb!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

bill lisleman said...

Green is good. Green Lizard shot, Green Daiquiri punch

LL Cool Joe said...

Geez I forgot it was St. Patrick's Day. Maybe I should have worn green. Actually not sure I have anything green. I hope you had fun!

Karen Ann said...

You find some good ones!!

Liz Hinds said...

Just to say, WAYAYLES!! But we love the Irish too.

jono said...

The lightening strike at the end of the rainbow says it all to me.

holli said...

Irish flu shots!! That's the best. LOL
I like the shirt I saw - you pinch me I punch you!

^.^ said...

According to genetic testing I am Polish, Ashkenazi, German, French and Irish … so I will have Kalbassa and beer, Gefillte Fish and beer, Sauerkraut and beer, Crรจme Brule and beer and Irish Stew with Green Beer … smiles … Love, cat.

Fundy Blue said...

A great collection, Debra! The little kiddo Molly and her pot of gold really cracked me up. I low how little kids are so pure and unfiltered! My father, a Scot by ancestry, swore by Scotch whiskey to cure anything. Have a great week!

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

I can probably stop celebrating now ...... till next year.

Jenn said...

I am late to the party but thanks for the LOL's!
