Funny St Patty’s Day T Shirts. There’s probably not a better holiday for tee shirt wearing than Saint Patrick’s Day. Right? The celebration of green and beer. It’s a heady mixture of revelry and if you’re wearing a t-shirt that aligns with this mirth, well, you’re a bad ass.
The Irish component is a very nice festive addition. Plus, red heads, luckiness, leprechauns, 4-leaf clover, pots of gold, and something that’s getting big time air play, is the shenanigans. Can’t have enough shenanigans on March 17.
Plus, just hanging out in the dark corner far from the joyous crowd is a little smidgen of violence. It just hangs in the air over there. Not too much. Not overwhelming. Just enough to add a little juice to the party.
Well, the Irish are well known for being fighters, so I guess that makes sense.
Saint Patrick’s Day! Funny St Patty’s Day T Shirts. What a combo!
You know. I can’t really decide how to spell this holiday. There’s about 941 variations. I’ll just add them all maybe. I don’t know.
There’s a lot of talk about kissing and St. Paddy’s day. Not surprising. Kissing is part of a lot of holidays. Ring in the New Year with kissing. Kiss under the mistletoe on Xmas. Valentine’s Day love kissing. And drink beer, get filled with love for humanity, and kiss the closest person you can find.
That’s cool. Apparently, the Irish got top priority on this thing, which I’m not totally down with since I don’t have a drop of Irish blood, but I guess since it’s their holiday you gotta let them scootch to the front of the line. That’s fine. As long as I get some sort of tertiary attention by someone at the bar somewhere. Preferably a gorgeous red-headed woman, but, again, Irish first.
St Patricks Day Shirts: Shenanigans Abound
Shenanigans are huge on Saint Patty’s day. When you’re slightly buzzed you can pull off mischievous pranks. When you’re drunk it just turns into sloppy retardation. So, there’s a fine line. Don’t cross it. Or if you do, don’t throw up on the nice lady or me for that matter.
Funny St Patty’s Day T Shirts: Can We Talk About Flip Shirts?
First, they’re way better if the dude’s are fat. Much more hilarity with a little jiggling, but I guess if you’re selling shirts, you gotta use beautiful people.
Of course, the woman have undershirts when they do the flip shirts. I guess that’s probably the decent thing to do. Although, I bet it’s a different story when Jameson starts really flowing and the responsible people have headed home for the evening, and things get “interesting.”
Then, I’m guessing there’s more of a mardi gras type of flip shirt execution. In fact, you do see a lot of those shiny green beads on Saint Patty’s Day. There may be a very specific reason for that.
St Patricks Days Shirts: How About A Little Bit of History
First off, Saint Patty’s real name was Maewyn Succat. Just want to make sure everyone is aware. He was the patron saint of Ireland, and he died on March 17. Thus, the date.
Originally the color associated with St. Patty’s was a certain shade of blue, but then people were like, nah, should be green. Shamrock. Emerald Isle. Come on. This is obvious.
St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Trinity, because the shamrock (clover leaf) typically has three leaves. So, what Satan worshiping heathen decided that a four leaf clover was lucky? Yes, it’s rare, but now we’re beyond the trinity. Maybe that extra leaf signifies that you’re one with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I’m going to go with that rather than the Satanic thing. If you’re truly aligned with that good stuff, then you typically probably do have good fortune. I’m taking liberties in my exegesis, but I guess I earned that privilege, since it’s my frickin’ blog.
Anyways, St. Patrick wasn’t even Irish. He was British, but was kidnapped by Irish raiders. He converted to Christianity in this time, then spent the rest of his days as a missionary. That’s a pretty damn wild story right there.
No wonder the Irish like this dude so much. He was a man of their creation using force to rip him out of Britain, then show him the ways of Christianity. Then, let him loose to preach the good word.
Over the years the myth making took hold. He drove all the snakes from the island. Literally, there were no snakes on the Ireland though he did drive many pagans away.
The parades started in the United States, after tons of the Irish immigrated to the U.S. during the 1840s potato famine. Actually, the first one was in 1762 when a group of Irish soldiers marched down the street to a pub in Manhattan. Sounds about right. Of course, they were serving the British at the time. So, mixed emotions right there. Screw the British, but hell yeah for St. Patty’s parades.
That New York parade now has 200,000 participants and three million spectators. Damn.
Some St. Paddy’s day quotes:
“May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you. May the luck of the Irish enfold you. May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.”
“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.”
“If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.”
I really like the concept of “transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” That’s another reason this holiday has such a jolly raucous good vibe. Winter is over. The sun might even be out. Hearts are thawing. Renewal and love are in the air. Time to really let loose, ‘cuz you can actually do a dance on the sidewalk without slipping and falling on your ass.
I mean you’ll probably still fall on your ass because you’re drunk as hell, but it will be a softer fall not caused by ice.
