Saint Patties. Drinking. Holiday Theft. Face Punch.



As an Irishman, I've gotten used to the saying that, "everyone's Irish on Saint Patrick's Day".

I mean, I'm not going to start a fight with a non Irish person just because they're trying to steal my day but I'm also not going to sit back and let them pretend that it's OK that they can get bombed and pretend that they're Irish.

Because they're not.

So to be fair, I'm going to toss a potato onto a world map and ask that everyone harrasses the country folk that my spud lands on.

O.K. Here we go.....and throw...

The potato called it. It looks like it's the peoples of Trinidad and Tobago. So in all fairness, when you're out drinking at the bars today and you see someone from Trinidad and Tobago - start a fight with them. And when you're done kicking their ass, explain to them that it's nothing personal.

I'm not even a wee bit of the green. Or T & T, so I guess I'm safe for the day.

Everytime I go to the bar and see The Trindadians and Tobagoans, I kick their ass just for principle. So today will be no different.


peace

Weird, I thought you were American.

Asphodel said...

Was it a very small potato or a very big map?

Scope said...

Isn't that like picking on TWO countries?

And if they obey "puff puff pass" and don't Bogart, they got no problem with me.

I thought Trinidad was a suburb of Ireland.

Thanks for the geometry lesson!

Great idea!!! Cuz of course, "a drunken Irishman" is the perfect excuse for boorish behavior.

Oh it's personal with them all right. Fro me anyway. All those bastards down there owe me $5 bucks each. Damn dead beat Trinidad and Tobagans.

Happy St. Patties day Zibbs, here's a saying for you (which I stole from someone else, naturally):
As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters be facing down.

Have a good one, and watch out for those triffids. What?...Oh, never mind. xo

Someone is a little cranky this morning... and I don't think your mother would be so proud of the fact that you aren't sharing.

Gwen said...

Excellent. Those fucking Caribes have it too easy anyway what with their sunshine and beaches.

Peggy said...

I'm a lady, so I do not engage in bar brawlery...however, if I do run into a T&T'er today, it means I've gotten so drunk that I hopped aboard a plane headed to the caribbean due to your putting subliminal thoughts into my brain.

ps - thinking of you and your family today.

Dear Trinidad and Tobagonites,

Choose a name for your country. You can have Trinidad. You can have Tobago. You can't have two names. You can combine them to have Trinbago but two names is ridiculous and too time consuming to say and type. By the way, I know it's a near impossibility but did toboggans come from T&T?

Today has always been a bit like New Years Eve to me - amateur night.

Well, that's funny...I threw something at you today. You should stop by my place and have a looksie.

I try to never let those people ruin my entirely-of-Irish-descent ass's good time.

I try, but I always fail. I'm going to start running around on Ramadan with a "Kiss Me I'm Saudi" button on.

dizzy mom said...

I heard Irsih men have small packages. Is that true. Hmm. But Irish yaks onn the other hand...

It's like the Irish version of a "donkey show"

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Slyde said...

trinidad?

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Hahahhahaha Puff Puff Pass!!
I'll be sure to poll all clientele as to their nationality!

Here to help! *TINK*

Happy S.P. Day!

Sorry, not Irish. Not even today. Hell even St. Pat wasn't Irish. As for the fighting Irish of Notre Dame, Isn't Notre Dame in France? More like the fighting frogs.

Vic said...

I'll just say "Potato made me do it", and then pop 'em.

Grant Miller said...

Nice taters - if you know what I mean.

Irish Diplomacy...
is the ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip.


thats all I got for ya!!! heheh HAPPY ST PATTYS DAY!!!!!

The Jules said...

Not personal?

They sort of claimed a potato as their own on a map!

If that's not a relatively legitmate reason for racially aggravated pugilism, I don't know what is.

Michelle said...

So, my favorite security man that works in my building is from Trinadad and Tobago. Shall I go kick his ass now???

Dr Zibbs said...

Vic wins the funniest comment of the day.

Dr Zibbs said...

Thoughts By Dena - welcome.

Trooper Thorn said...

Those smug Trinidad & Tabagonians with their sunny weather and pleasant dispositions really get under my skin. Who do they think they are not coming over here and taking our jobs? Even other Caribbean nations like Bermuda can't stand them.
