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."

Ah, but if I was to ask you to do an indenti-kit you'd be fine? ;)

Yes any celebration can be used as that, but it seems that the vast majority use St Pads for that. Certainly the most visible celbrations anyhow, with a lot of people defending it. At least in football you get people decrying the idiots, or doing something about them - they aren't acceptable.

With St Pads it's not only acceptable, it's defended. That's why it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Even though I have nothing against the idea of it, the actuallity of it is less than ideal.
