Happy St. Patty’s

By  | 


So, today’s the day we celebrate the plight of alcoholism in the Irish the fun-loving spirit of the Irish with good beer and good friends.

Here’s some factoids from a guy with a bit of the Irish in him:

Over 35 million Americans have Irish blood. But the rest of you are welcome to wear green.

Barack Obama has Irish ancestry. And that’s not a bad O’Bama joke.

Twenty-four American presidents have Irish heritage, including the last nine elected presidents dating back to Kennedy.

Andrew Jackson was our most Irish president — both his parents were Irish immigrants.

The first St. Patrick’s Day parade in America was in New York City in 1762. Fourteen years later, nine of the signers of the Declaration of Independence could claim Irish heritage.

Killian’s Irish Red is not an Irish beer. It’s brewed by Coors. Don’t be fooled.

If your Guinness is cold, it’s too cold. Proper temperature is 45 degrees. Also known as Irish room temperature.

Skip the corned beef.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, y’all.

    “The Kremlin published its priorities Monday for an upcoming meeting of the G20, calling for the creation of a supranational reserve currency to be issued by international institutions as part of a reform of the global financial system.
