Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Kiss Me! I'm Irish!

Erin go braugh, y'all.

Tonight, the kids and I are making shamrock cookies and green cupcakes!! With sprinkles!! Mmmmm... Honestly. Screw corned beef and cabbage, we're going secular. (Sorry, Mommy!)

Fact: St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, yet he wasn't really Irish at all.

Fact: Contrary to popular belief, St. Patrick DID NOT change the national color of Ireland to green.

Fact: A leprechaun is really a wee, elfish, Irish shoemaker with a reputation for being rich, but mean. Huh. Figures. I guess the Lucky Charms Leprechaun ain't looking so hot to you NOW, eh?

Fact: The Irish are responsible for all that oatmeal your parents used to force you to eat.

Fact: You know, St. Patrick did not LITERALY drive actual snakes out of Ireland, right?

Fact: Kissing the Blarney Stone, at Blarney castle in Ireland, gives you the "gift of gab."

Fact: In order to actually kiss the Blarney Stone, you have to lie on your back and bend your head waaay the freak down to even reach the stone. Even better, when you do, you will be kissing something that has been kissed by thousands of people a year for 500 years! Okay, ew. Two words, people: Antibacterial wipes.

Fact: Those sillies in Texas dye the San Antonio River green every March 17th. A whole river! Green! Take that, Moses.

Fact: Guinness beer is named after the dude who started keeping track of random, bizarre information. Wait. It is all starting to make sense now...

Fact: Green beer is NOT natural.

Aaaaand, finally,

Fact: If you sneeze hard enough, you can pop your jaw right out of its socket. No, really.

Sorry, I threw the last one in as a cautionary tale. Must go drink my breakfast through a straw now.
