You Know You’re Irish When…

17 03 2010

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A day of GREEN. A day of drunkenness and needless pinching. A day when everyone gets a chance to be Irish. But the real Irish can distinguish each other from the impersonators. Here’s a popular list to test a true Irishman:

  • You think Guinness should be in its own food group
  • You swear very well
  • At least one of your cousins holds political office
  • You think you sing very well
  • You have no idea how to make a long story short
  • You are very good at playing a lot of very bad golf
  • There isn’t a huge difference between losing your temper and killing someone
  • Much of your food was boiled
  • You have never hit your head on the ceiling
  • You spent a good portion of your childhood kneeling
  • You’re strangely poetic after a few beers
  • You will be punched for no good reason…
  • Some punches directed at you are legacies from past generations
  • Your sister will punch you because your brother punched her
  • Many of your sisters are named Catherine, Elizabeth or Mary… and one is named Mary Catherine Elizabeth
  • Someone in your family is incredibly cheap
  • It is most likely you
  • You can’t wait for the other guy to stop talking so you can start talking
  • “Irish Stew” is the euphemism for “boiled leftovers from the fridge”
  • You’re not nearly as funny as you think you are, but what you lack in talent, you make up for in frequency
  • There wasn’t a huge difference between your last wake and your last kegger party
  • You are, or know someone, named “Murph”
  • If you don’t know Murph, then you know a “Mac” or a “Mc”
  • If you don’t know Murph, Mac or Mc, then you know “Sully”
  • You’ll probably also know Sully McMurphy
  • The further from Ireland, the more Irish you get!

Come celebrate St. Patty’s at Playa with green margaritas, shots and beers! We’re easier to find than a four-leaf clover and serve up tastier meals than “Irish Stew”!
