Chasing rainbows on Paddy’s day

crock of gold

  • Who’s idea was it to call it St. Patty’s day Jimmy?
  • The Americans
  • …and who the fuck is Patty when she’s at home anyway?
  • A snake charmer called Patricia. Paddy got rid of the snakes, she’s gonna bring them back
  • She’s doing a good job of it so. There’s a few snakes around I’d like to give a belt of a shillelagh to.
  • Saint Patrick didn’t carry a shillelagh, he carried a walking stick. You’re thinking of leprechauns. Leprechauns carry shillelaghs
  • Do they now Mr. know all? …and when was the last time you saw a leprechaun with a shillelagh?
  • When I was five, in the fairy ring at the bottom of me mas garden
  • Next you’ll be telling me you found his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
  • Ah that’s all a myth Bernie
  • You do surprise me Jimmy. Leprechauns,shillelaghs and fairy rings; but no pot of gold?
  • No end of the rainbow Bernie. It’s forever illusive.
  • Tell me about it. I’m forever chasing rainbows Jimmy
  • Sure didn’t you catch me? Better than any crock of gold I am
  • Golden balls himself
  • Begorrah and be god sure I am so I am Bernadette Rosaleen
  • Stop it will you. Next thing you’ll be saying ‘Top o’ de mornin’ to ye’
  • Ah sure you have to get into the Paddy’s day spirit Bernie
  • By talking like Jimmy O’Dea in  Darby O’Gill and the Little People?
  • I was thinking more Sean Connery
  • Are you sure you didn’t kiss the Blarney stone as well Jimmy?
  • Why?
  • Because you never stop talking shite
  • Ah lighten up Bernie. It’s Paddys day. I’ve the whole weekend off. Time for the craic
  • Don’t even think of asking me to go in to the Parade
  • Fuck that Bernie. In this weather? We’re going down the pub to drown the shamrock
  • Now you’re talking. You can buy me dinner as well
  • We can have a look for a fairy ring on the way Ber
  • Ask me hoop Jimmy

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone   🙂

  1. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! From what i’ve understood, the original saying was that you were more likely to find the end of the rainbow than to find a leprechaun’s pot of gold, and from a misunderstanding of that people began to believe leprechauns actually hid the gold there. No, i’ve never caught a leprechaun to ask for myself.
