0% Irish

I'm reasonably certain that, even on St. Patrick's Day, my ancestry is about 0% Irish. Scarecrow has a little, but it's a ways back, and pretty thin. He plays some Irish tunes, but I don't think that counts. The whole idea of green beer has always struck me as a little odd.

I'm fond of corned beef and cabbage, though, and Scarecrow just boiled up a mess of it. (Is it still considered boiled if he does it in the pressure cooker?) Anyway, corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions, the whole nine yards. With horseradish, which may or may not be traditional, but since I'm not Irish I don't figure it matters. And a Black Butte Porter.

Life is good.


  1. No Irish here as far as I know. KRP did make up the corned beef and cabbage plus the works. My pal took us fishing and it was quite on the river. The green folks were at their more traditional party areas so the part of the river we were on was more a brown blue color.

  2. It is news to me that I have Irish ancestors. And you accuse me of withholding genealogical information! Link?

  3. LOL, FIGHT! I am much, 50% Irish, never had cabbage & corn beef in my life and don't drink. Can't dance a jig. I do own some green tee shirts...
