The Daily Word in St. Patrick's Day

By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Mar 17 2015 11:29 AM ]
The Daily Word

Good morning, it’s Tuesday, March 17,

which is St. Patrick’s Day! So celebrate with a bottle of Killian’s, a bowl of Lucky Charms, a shamrock shake, some green beer, and other things that piss off Irish people.

In fact, most of what you know about St. Paddy’s Day is a lie. A LIE.

Brush up on the real St. Patrick here.

And if you seek authenticity, don’t forget to eat your parsnips!

Maybe you can find some at local Albuquerque restaurants that are celebrating Restaurant Week?

Meanwhile, the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade is, for the first time, allowing an LGBT group to march. That’s right, one LGBT group is allowed to march, and it happens to be made up of employees of NBC, the network that threatened to boycott coverage of the parade if they didn’t.

Finally, dentists are excited about the holiday because so many people get into bar fights that result in the loss of teeth. So support your local dental clinic and mouth off to a drunken leprechaun tonight!

Ricky Gervais is kind of a prick, but no surprise there.

Vice magazine continues its hard-hitting reporting by answering the question: What happens when you put cocaine in your butt?

Two UNM physicians are going to kill a bunch of grasshoppers.

The New York St. Patrick’s Day parade will be cooler and gayer this year.

And, for the children of the late 20th century, here are 100 things that apparently happened in that Saved By the Bell movie that you didn’t watch but secretly kind of wanted to.
