Yeah. Is it just me or is there more hatred for this holiday this year than previously? Like 30 Rock had some pretty scathing things to say, and in general it seems to be "ugh this again" more than anything else. (Though this might be because I'm (a) in my mid-20s now and vomiting in the street binge-drinking is so 3-5 years ago and (b) actually living in NYC where contempt for people showing up just to drink trumps pretty much everything.) --- Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir
Ugh like people going to Yankee games. It's like come on dude. Just go to the baseball game. --- Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir
I've never cared for St. Patty's Day, myself, and have always held some disdain for it.
Not even because it's an excuse for binge-drinking. That's fine. But because of the zealotry that people have for this binge-drinking day, and the hypocrisy they have in celebrating their "Irish heritage". Anyone who grew up in Ireland before the '90s would tell you all the bars were closed on St. Patrick's Day. --- SIGNATURE
