Happy St. Paddy's Day
I love how St. Patrick is listed as the patron saint of Ireland when he isn't even IRISH. He was a Roman slave who was taken to Ireland. When he escaped he joined the Church and went back to Ireland. What about the he drove the snakes from Ireland thing? Total BS. Ireland hadn't had snakes since the last ice age, it was a last minute addition to his story. This is why bunches of frat boys drink themselves into a stupor on green beer as honorary Irishmen. Anyway enough of my ranting on this mother of all non-holidays!
