Happy Plastic Paddy Day

America is fucking insane about "I once smelt Irish Whiskey so I'm Offically Irish" Day.

Just don't get me started... the first time someone pinches me on St Pads for not wearing Green is the day I get arrested for beating someone with a nice Orange traffic cone "because I'm English and it's symbolic."

Wtf? Pinching? Must be some weird US thing, cause in Australia St Paddy's Day is about celebrating your Irish heritage. Sure people get drunk, but it's Australia.

Here in France, it's about celebrating Irish culture. The French LOVE to discover new cultures, and something like St Patrick's Day is just what they love to do with Irish music in the pubs and food and dancing and all sorts of stuff.

Yeah, the pinching thing is just stupid. Kids victimising each other is a wierd tradition..

It's stuff like that which prompted the "America is insane" part of the post.

Never heard of it before! How fucking weird. I guess in Australia if a kid did that the other kid would just deck them.

Yup! I thought I go the more symbolic route for humours sake in my post tho! ;)
