In 400ad there was a man by the name of St. Patrick that went to Ireland and explained that whole Christianity thing to everybody. He spent thirty years on his mission trip and was revered as a saint several centuries later. Supposedly, he even drove out all the snakes in Ireland.
No mean feat for someone who wasn’t a wizard.
My question though is what happened to all the snakes and where did they go?
Maybe there’s a correlation between the disappearance of snakes in Ireland and England’s Great Snake Plague of 435ad.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!
P.S. If you’re in Chicago, they dye the river green each year… just found that one out.
P.P.S I also just found out that it’s a non-alcoholic mixture. 😦
With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I decided to do a short post to showcase some of the ways people celebrate this great holiday in America and Ireland.

P.S. The underwhelmer does not promote the pursuit and subsequent capture of little people, no matter how funny it may be.
P.P.S. Let’s all go get blasted, but we’ll at least do some research to know why we’re getting black-out drunk for a centuries-old dead guy. Now if you’ll excuse me, I must go. My fightin’ juice (whisky) won’t drink itself.
