St. Patrick's Day Parade

A few pics from the parade. You can click on them to see more detail.

Irish wolfhounds are cool. I'd like to see a cage match between a few of these guys and some wolves.

Irish Illegal Aliens Against Immigration Enforcement (IIAAIE, pronounced much like Howard Dean's YEEEAAAARRGGGHHHH, but with a Gaelic accent).

Never afraid to take controversial positions, these people are in favor of Ireland, America, and peace.

An old Irish prank is to teach children to cross the street when cross traffic has a green light.

The Irish identify their dim-witted children by making them wear blue when everyone else is wearing green.

UPS had one of the better floats.

UPS and the Irish: teaching kids to take up smoking since 1968.

That dog looks embarrassed to be seen with these people.

Hey, Frank Chu! I didn't know he was Irish!

So, WC - do you think Bono will stop putting "Whitey" on a guilt trip with all of his efforts for Africa and instead take a "Charity begins at Home" attitude going forward?

I wish U2 would just go back to doing what they do best (singing emo ballads).


This isn't really surprising to me. Honestly - Leprechauns? pots of gold? magic four leaf clover? Lucky Charms (part of this complete breakfast)? I've got some Irish relatives (distant and becoming more distant). Kind of a stupid people if you ask me. Fun loving yes but impractical and hoosier - it's probably just my German/Swiss talking.

Wow, Jeff, how'd you find this old post? Thanks for bringing it up. Memories!

I don't think consumer debt and bank bailouts are sexy enough for Bono. Chicks dig Africa.

I love the Irish though. They live for fun. Though that's going to be a bit harder now that they are debt slaves to Brussels.

Yeppers - why is it that all these white celebutantes and entertainers are always most interested in adopting brown and black babies from the third world? I think it is the flies.... they see the kid on the tube all covered with flies and the "mommy" instinct kicks into high gear. Hey, Bono and crew are loaded with "Kite" royalties so they can continue on the never ending story that is "Save Africa from Itself" AND provide relief to their debt addicted, rainbow chasing countrymen in their homeland, right? I say "pile it on those fucking do-gooders"... snicker.

I like doing this to Adrienne - prolly makes her feel like she's got a John Hinckley, Jr. nutcase out there - prolly strokes her ego a bit.

Ants and Grasshoppers, bitches.... ants and grasshoppers - no different today than when Aesop wrote the fables.

"Freeze asshole" - said the ant.

Nailed it

Twitter (X) : To be fair, though, I thought they'd come up with someone more appealing than Cackles Harris.
