A poor excuse to pick a man's pocket every 17th of March



I'm not Irish, I'm not Catholic, and I'm not going to pretend I'm not an Anglo-Saxon Protestant just because it happens to be the feast day of the cult of St. Patrick.

However, if you happen to venerate St. Patrick, or if you just want to ponder the historical context behind this excuse to dress in unflattering shades of green and drink green beer, you may be interested to learn a bit about the patron saint of Ireland. Sounds like a good guy, but I have no doubt that if he were here, he'd tell everyone to stop horsing around and go feed the poor or something.
