Happy Saint Patrick's Day !

Today's the day that all good Irishmen (and women) honor the memory of the Patron Saint of Ireland by getting shitfaced on Irish whiskey and green beer, and throwing up in an alley.

Nah, just kidding. I'm proud to be a Mick, and very fortunate to be born on St. Patrick's Day as well. I remember my uncle coming over to my house on St. Patty's day, and he'd say "Oh, so it's your birthday, eh? Well, I guess you could say that's one year closer to the grave!" While it might seem a cruel thing to say to a little kid, what he meant was that every year needs to be lived to it's fullest, because you never know what the future holds for us. He meant do it now, because you might not get a another chance.

Here's a good one:
Q. How many Irishmen does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. It takes three - one to hold the light bulb, and two to drink until the room starts to spin....
