Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Happy Punch An Englishman In The Face Day

Posted in Life's A Gamble by Huckleberry on March 17, 2015

I’ve been lobbying to get the day switched from the boring and not too accurate “St. Patrick’s Day” to “Punch An Englishman In The Face Day” because, let’s be honest, it’s the Irish thing to do.
Besides, there’s better than even odds the Englishman has it coming to him.
Anyway.
This is a day to, I guess, drink too much, to eat boiled foods, and to wear green even though people in Ireland don’t usually wear green. At least not garish, cartoonish green.
But alas.
Still, as days of observance go, it beats Cinco de Mayo with a stick, and that’s not nothing.
Speaking of, it’s odd that the two countries — Ireland and Mexico — have the same flag save for one drunken eagle. Yet Ireland and all its associations are GREEN while Mexico, if it’s even associated with a color, that color is the hue of a bodily fluid.
Go figure.

    Not that it matters, I prefer this version.
