Et tu, Brute? (I knew taking Latin would come in handy! Win!)
Happy Ides of March everyone!
Who cares about leprechauns when the Ides of March has knives...and excessive amounts of stabbing! I seriously think that makes the Ides of March a waaaaaay better kind of holiday! Shakespeare talked about it in Julius Caesar. The Senate killed the actual Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. prompting a war and all sorts of other historic like events, AND most recently, George Clooney, the original Dr. McDreamy starred in a movie that payed homage to the Ides in its title. Does it get any better than that?! I honestly don't think so! All St. Patrick's Day is, is an excuse to drink green beer (gross), get wasted and have some highly undesirable neanderthal hit on you. Unless you're actually Irish, you look like a complete ass celebrating St. Patrick's day. Also, that green dye that they add to milkshakes and beer? That can't be good for you. If given the choice, I'd take a pivotal moment in Roman and World history over a day filled with imaginary miniature people and rainbows and pots of gold. Leprechaun's don't exist. They have never existed and they will never exist...unless in your drunken stupor you decide that taking acid/mushrooms or any other kind of hallucinogenic drug is a good idea. Then you might see one. Or you might also see one if you live here:
So, if you're going to celebrate, make sure you have your 'ancient' leprechaun flute that looks suspiciously like a lead pipe and hip-waders that 'ward off spells' this St. Patrick's day.
