Happy Pats Day, Everyone!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Steph Dawe, Mar 16, 2006.


  1. Today's the day we honour our very special Pats.

    I saw mine today; upon wishing him a Happy Pats Day he put on an awful Irish accent and told me he forgot to put on his green socks this morning.

    Truly one of a kind.

    An Aussie doing an Irish accent? Wouldn't the world explode?
     
  3. I'm gonna have Oaxacan food for lunch with a friend tomorrow. I don't think they'll be dying the molé green. :p
     
  4. Loads of Irish went to Australia, y'know. The Irish accent was a huge influence on the way they talk there, the same way that Chicago accents are heavily Slavic-inflected or Utah/Minnesota ones are heavily Norse.

    Of course, I just made a bad joke...
     
  6. mmmmm.... Guiness :D
     
  7. Represent. I get to go out tonight and witness the madness first hand. 4,000 people arrested last year. Put that in context with our population... that's mad.

    But sher, we've never been the classiest nation, and Paddy's Day is the best excuse for a piss-up there is. Feck it, maybe I'll join 'em!

    Happy Paddy's Day everyone!

    Our sales manager, Patrick, came in wearing a kilt today! He assures me that the Irish wear kilts too. Is this true?
    I do know one thing.. it's a fine day to try out some of that Smithwick's beer! Right after work!

    I'm not Irish, I'm just a fan, but my kids got 1/4 Irish from their mom's side.

    Everybody drive careful tonight.
