Happy St. Paddy’s Day March 17, 2016

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor, Joke.

170px-At&tPhoneAfter digging to a depth of 10 feet last year, American scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that Americans had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

In the weeks that followed, a Canadian archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and the Toronto Times reported:

“Canadian archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the Americans.”

Frog-CircusOne week later, Irish Dept. Of Mines and Resources in Dublin reported the following:

“After digging as deep as 30 feet in Limerick, Jack Lucknow, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.

From that, he concluded that 250 years ago . . . Ireland had already gone wireless.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

If you want to get your Irish on . . . here’s a recipe for Irish Soda Bread that’ll have you dancing an Irish Jig. Β It mixes up faster than a leprechaun guarding his pot of gold can sing, “Erin Go Bragh.”

LOL! Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Nancy!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Thanks, Jill. Hope you find a wee bit of magic waiting around the corner this morning.

Hahaha! Happy St. Pat’s!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Thanks, Pix! Hope a leprechaun sprinkles the Tiny Ten with Happy Dust . . . making all the worker dudes disappear!

Under the Oaks - March 17, 2016

They are gone… finished up yesterday and CH and I got the house all clean and put back together again… πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Woo Hoo! Let the C~E~L~E~B~R~A~T~I~O~N begin!

3. Rainee - March 17, 2016

Brilliant! Made me smile πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

When Irish eyes are smiling . . . you know they’ve been up to a wee bit of mischief! πŸ™„

4. Val Boyko - March 17, 2016

Irish humor is close to the best πŸ˜‰πŸ€

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Yes! Jokes just seem funnier with an Irish lad at the helm.

5. BunKaryudo - March 17, 2016

You can’t fault that logic. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

It’s too convoluted and twisted for us to stand a chance!

As someone of Italian ancestry, I just never celebrate this Holiday. I don’t even have a single green garment. However, I’ve figured out one way to celebrate. I can put green olives on my ravioli, along with sprinkling Italian seasoning, which has a greenish tint.

“Erin & Italia go Bragh!”

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

And you can eat it on a G~R~E~E~N plate! :mrgreen:

7. JOriginal Muse - March 17, 2016

Top of the mornin’ to ya… Well, by now, it’ s the bottom of the mornin’ for ya…. Ah, but Italian eyes are smilin’ here in Sunny SoCal, because your post was TECHnically magically funny ;-D

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Nothing like smiling eyes of any nationality. We’re back from a walk on the F~O~G~G~Y beach.

No leprechauns, but I did find a Lucky Penny!

8. Kate @ Did That Just Happen? - March 17, 2016

LOL! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Have a day filled with Luck and Laughter, Kate!

9. suzicate - March 17, 2016

Love it! Happy St. Paddy’s!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

We’re just back from a wee celebration on Old Main Street ~ a “pub crawl” from O’Bricks to the Lost Kangeroo Pub to McCabe’s Irish Pub. Irish Dancers and singers in kilts.

We left the Green Beer for others. :mrgreen:

10. anotherday2paradise - March 17, 2016

The optimism of the Irish! πŸ˜€

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Yes! The most fantastic explanation . . . not the most plausible.

11. Eric Tonningsen - March 17, 2016

I vividly remember sitting in the kitchen as a wee one, watching my grandmother knead, roll and cut dough as see prepped her Soda Bread. She always made four loaves at a time and her process was painstakingly yet lovingly slow. I suspect few make it today as she once did. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Maybe not. β€œSlΓ‘inte!”

12. jannatwrites - March 17, 2016

That’s funny… happy St. Patricks day! I think we’ll celebrate with half price shakes at Sonic after I’m done working πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

Excellent idea! A “Shamrock Shake” sounds better than green beer to me. :mrgreen:

13. Carol Ferenc - March 17, 2016

Hehehe!! NOW I feel like I’ve celebrated St. Patty’s Day!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

May the Luck of the Irish shadow you all day, Carol!

Carol Ferenc - March 17, 2016

And you too, Nancy!

nrhatch - March 17, 2016

So far so good! I even got our taxes done. Woo Hoo!

14. Behind the Story - March 18, 2016

That’s a good one. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Nancy.

nrhatch - March 18, 2016

Thanks, Nicki! Top of the morning to ya!

15. Debra - March 18, 2016

Ha! I wondered for a moment where you were going with this one. πŸ™‚ Hope it was a great day, Nancy!

nrhatch - March 18, 2016

We had a fun day . . . ending with a performance of the Young Irelanders at the Van Wezel. Lots of Irish Dancing and Music.

16. Ally Bean - March 18, 2016

Gotta love the joy that St. Paddy’s Day brings to the world. As a person with a healthy dose of Irish ancestry, it’s my kind of holiday. SlΓ‘inte!

nrhatch - March 18, 2016

St. Paddy’s Day is great ~> eating, drinking, and making merry without having to decorate, buy presents, or empty our wallets at the mall.

And everyone walks around smiling. :mrgreen:

17. Anne Lene @ MinimalistSometimes - March 18, 2016

But, yes, of course πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 18, 2016

Mais oui!

18. Patricia - March 18, 2016

Too funny.

nrhatch - March 19, 2016

Glad you enjoyed, Patricia.

19. Tiny - March 20, 2016

I knew I missed something πŸ˜€ !

nrhatch - March 20, 2016

Well you might have missed out on some pipers piping, but it seems like your days and night overflowed with stuff to do.

Glad you’ve had a chance to rest up this weekend.

20. reocochran - March 20, 2016

A belated, “ha ha ha!” And I was needing an Irish Coffee, “a kick with some pep” to it, Nancy! πŸ™‚

nrhatch - March 21, 2016

I used to enjoy capping off dinner with an Irish Coffee. Now I stay away from caffeine after noon and alcohol after eight. Most of the time. :mrgreen:
