Okay, I'm here in Elmhurst as you all well know..and I'm helping to take care of my Da in his hour of need. What you don't know is that Elmhurst is the land of the wee' little people. What that means is that everyone here is Irish. Not only Irish but Catholic to boot. I went to my Uncle's house the other day because they were having a St. Paddy's day party. What do you have at a St. Paddy's day party??? Why beer of course. As we were driving to his house I noticed that every bar was spilling out people. They couldn't hold them all in! There were tents...there were was everywhere!! It made me feel a little made me feel like...........shouting. Yep. And not just any ole thing either. No. It had to be Irish things. I am proudly 1/4th Irish. This was my day. The day of my ancestors! I felt them whelling up inside me. By the time we got to my Uncle's house the party was in full swing. I reconnected with cousins I hadn't seen in over ten years. Everytime someone came up to say hi I had to stuff the urge to grab them, clap them on the back and yell..."Jesus Mary and Joseph it's good ta see ya!" hahaha All in all a good day. So in keeping with an ole' Irish tradition here is a joke for you......

An Irishman, an Englishman and a Scotsman go into a pub. Each orders a pint of Guinness. Just as the bartender hands them over, three flies buzz down and land-- one, two, three-- in each of the pints.

The Englishman looks disgusted, pushes his pint away and demands another... the Scotsman picks out the fly, shrugs, and takes a long swallow.

The Irishman reaches in to the glass, grabs the fly between his fingers and shakes him as hard as he can, shouting 'Spit it out, ya bloody bastard! Spit it out!

hahahahah snort snort hahahahahaha
