When Irish Guys Are Dialing

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Today, on behalf of Ireland, the Irish, and people who like Guinness, allow me to say:

Sam is gonna be thrilled, I just know it.


So will Pabrick.


And wait'll he hears about his promotion!

I'm not sure if I should salute or cross myself.



Now, there's a stereotype floating around that we Irish like to drink.

I don't know where this comes from.

And frankly, if I were able to see straight or type this without developing motion sickness, I'd be extremely offended. [hic]

Hey, look! A green golf bag! How appropriate!

[head tilt]

Wait, no. That's Scotland. Sorry. I always get Craig Ferguson and Colin Farrell mixed up.


There's also a common misconception that we Irish have nasty tempers. I don't know who started this rumor, but if I ever find out I WILL CUT OFF THEIR BANGERS AND MASH AND FEED THEM TO THE LOCH NESS MONSTER.

[blinking]


That's Scotland again, isn't it?

DANG IT!!


So, in conclusion, this is a terrible four-leaf clover:

That, or this Guinness is making me see triple.


Oh, and also: Be careful when doling out kissing commands today. There's a big difference between telling an attractive stranger, "Kiss me, I'm Irish" and telling just anyone Irish to kiss you:

Don't believe me? Well, consider this: all of these guys are Irish:

"Aye, yore a pritty one, ar'ntcha?"

"Heh aheh hehehe."

"Forget those lucky charms, lass, I've got yore pot o' gold right here!"


Yep, we Irish can be a bit creepy. It's part of our charm.



Rock on, Colin. Rock. On.


Thanks to Stacey T., Liz C., Jodee R., Cristina, Claire P., Emily C., Jen F., Rebecca M., Leslie C., Jenaro P., & Heather H., who are all honorary Irishmen today. So wear those red beards with pride, ladies.

I was really enjoying these in a normal way until I go to the last one. I lost it. Between the picture, Jen's commentary, and my own mind, it was more than I could take. Bravo!

I am Irish and I am SOOOOOO offended!!!

Joanna said...

As someone descended long long ago from Scottish people (so long ago that it's not worth counting up all the greats), I'm officially offended that you get Scotland and Ireland confused.

Wait....no, no I'm not. Actually, I laughed out loud all the way through that post. :-)

Thanks for the laughs!!

Little Miss "E" said...

I can't believe that after last week's debacle that you would go ahead and trash the Irish culture like this...
(snicker, snicker!)

This post had me rolling! What's up with the fuzzy pumpkin? "I've got yore pot o' gold right here!"
Oh my!!

Beautiful work!

Ellen said...

Laughing heartily at the whole post, but especially at the "got your pot o' gold right here" line!

Maybe the wreckerator who made the "golf bag" can try it again for St. Andrew's Day.

If, in fact, anyone celebrates St. Andrew's Day . . .

SuBee said...

I've known for a long time that the best way to end the day is with a Craig Ferguson musical extravaganza. I had no idea it was such a great way to start the day!!
Thank you so much!

As far as the cakes go, I believe the first example is a St. Patricks day cake from sunny Spain.

Michelle said...

Can someone please help me wipe the tea off my computer screen? =_) I full lost it with the 'pot 'o gold'.

Erinn go Brach!

Flartus said...

Those "rainbows" made me giggle aloud. Almost got into trouble at work.

Amanda said...

I really did laugh out loud. Really. Thanks for the smile, although those gingerbread men are going to lurk around my subconscious all day.

Sharon said...

Kiss me Irish?
Maybe the person saying this was sloshed and was asking Iris to kiss him?
Got to get back to decorating some St. Patrick's Day cupcakes and cookie bouquet.
Love the post.

I'm married to a Scotsman, and I quite literally could not stop laughing at this post. Thanks, and here's hoping nobody gets offended.

(Also, is it weird that I kind of like the first leprechaun cake? It's cute in a scary, shaggy kind of way.)

WV: Rednerod, which I am stealing for a fantasy character name.

Shanti said...

Ellen: I don't know about St. Andrew's day, but in New York they celebrate Tartan Day in April with a parade. All the bagpipes and kilts you can handle!

Maybe we could find some horrible plaid cakes for Tartan Day...

J. said...

"Forget those lucky charms, lass, I've got yore pot o' gold right here!"

LMPOGO (As in Laughing My Pot O' Gold Off)

Love those cakes, but do people really eat cake on St. Patrick's Day? I thought St. Patrick's Day was all about drinking shamrock shakes and green beer. But I guess you can have some cake and Guinness too!

tjbmurph said...

Slainte!

Now see, I thought "Kiss Me Irish" was the St. Patrick's Day version of "kiss my grits."

Great way to start the morning! Thanks, Jen!

A.J. said...

Hey, I discovered via the Internets today that my family may be Irish (or British or Scottish)so as a possible Irish (or Scottish) descendant I'm offended that you got the two mixed up and say that they drink a lot and have bad tempers. How VERY dare you! LOL. Don't worry, I'm not Epcot-ing you.

But in all seriousness, that leering leprechaun and the gingerbread men will probably haunt me the rest of the day.

April said...

You just have to love how the wreckorators find such creative ways to re-use those special molds...such as the heart, and gingerbread man! :P

ev said...

As a second generation Scottish-American who had the crazy desire to marry an Irishman, I salute you. No matter what the rank!

And to think Craig Ferguson does that stuff without any booze!

And the guy in the white shorts has some nice moves.

BADKarma! said...

BWA, hAHAHhahahahahHAhahahahahahahah, etc.

That is all.

My mantra for today: "Yes, I'm wearing green. No, you can't see it. Pinch me and you'll swallow some teeth."

I just officially determined that I have NOT yet had enough coffee to process that video.

I feel... odd. Off to the coffee machine.

john (the hubby of JEN) said...

As someone who is Irish (and helped write this post), I'm offended that you're offended! And ANGRY!!! And a little zhrunk! *hic*

Seriously, at one point, I wrote an intro for it that praised the majestic Irish culture. And then I was like, "Nah." An Irishman without a sense of humor is as rare as a rude Canadian. There's just not enough of them to worry about.

Oldish Lady said...

That really is a terrible four-leaf clover.

For one thing it only has three leaves.

Loo-E Loo-I said...

There's a saying that everyone's a wee bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day...these wreckerators aren't. Not. Even. Close.

BUT hey! That makes it all the more funny for us! LOL!

Cake 1, I see "San", not "Sam", like San Andreas, San Francisco, San Patrick....What? You've never heard of it? ;-D

Cake 2, what's funny is they got the white lettering underneath right!

Cake 3, They forgot the "'"!

Cake 4, Mmmmmmm beeeeeer!

Cake 5A, *Sigh*, again they forgot the "'".

Cake 5B, I club beer? I shamrock beer? I clover beer? Sorry, I'd rather drink it, thank you.

Cake 6, beer or golf bags are considered "critters"?

Cake 7, I have words other than "terrible" that can be used to describe that shamrock. I cannot say them here.

Cake 8, The Irish have a way to kiss? I thought that was the French?

I like that other holiday shapes such as hearts or gingerbread men can be used instead of, oh, maybe actually using a shamrock-shaped pan.

"Forget those lucky charms, lass, I've got yore pot o' gold right here!" I'll take the one on the left...his pot o' gold is bigger! ;-D

Love the bonus Craig and Mythbusters clip LOL!

wv: duckcoi: a. A decoy that is a duck. or b. a goldfish that looks like a duck.

Anonymous said...

aw, what a shame. Sam's cake is kinda pretty!

#2: is it St. Palrick or Pabick? (thank goodness that looks like an a and not a u! though that would be appropriate for the rainbow twins down below...)

#3: Lt.! *salute*

#4: nice pretzel handle on the green beer with the fur muff. classy. cheating wreckerator! at least it's edible.

#5: I'm confused. is that beer or lemonade? Or did someone get a little confused about the expression "pissing in your beer"?

#6: ooh. the golf bag is spewing silly string or shaving cream or something...more sinister...with tentacles....

of course, that's what the average Irish mom of a toddler's purse probably looks like...

the rainbow twins are hilarious. they look like they should be in a Rainbow Pride parade with sashes and codpieces (or crashing the St. Pat's parade as "natives")

Mary B. said...

Ahahahahaha! Between the cakes and Mythbusters Gone Wild, consider my gut busted! Happy St. Patty's Day!

Travlnbard said...

Kiss me Irish could mean either
1) Kiss me until I am Irish or
2) Kiss me in the Irish fashion (i.e. Kiss me French would be completely understood).

Since looking at the pictures and the video I have been infected with LOLing spontaneously and for no apparent reason. Gotta love Jamie.

craig ferguson - not colin

colleenoz said...

I thought #1 said "Happy San Patrick Day", making it an attempt at a cross-cultural cake :-)
The gingerbread man on the left looks quite lascivious while his friend on the right just looks PO'd, possibly because his pot of gold isn't as big as Mr Sexy's ...
And the cakes just above the gingerbread men- clearly the grocery had some leftover Valentine's Day cakes taking up freezer space so someone got creative. Only question is, Valentine's Day which year?
WV decestri- some wreckerators should be served with a cease and decestri order

pikkewyntjie said...

The theme of this St. Patrick's Day is diversity. Or something. Nothing says St. Patrick's Day like a video of a Scotsman with various random people and objects cavorting to a song by Modern English! Love the Mythbusters, BTW.

Alas for the out, loud, and proud gingerbread men, their kind are often not allowed to participate in the St. Patrick's Day parade, but at least with Don't Ask Don't Tell out of the way, one of them can fulfil his dream of becoming Lt. Patrick!

NiteNurse said...

I'm both Irish and Scottish so I feel doubly lioved. Of course I'm terribly offended that you didn't speak lovingly about my French ancestry--because, after all is about ME--right??? ("Please pass the single malt. Not the whiskey. And WHAT do you mean I'm being difficult....Am not!")

Anyway, justed wanted to say that the first cake looked like "Jam Patrick" so I'm thinkin': "Either there are layers of fruity goodness in this baked item OR it is an exhortation to the Irish musicians among us to play louder, harder, etc"

Just saying....

(" Non, pas stupide. Imb├ęcile.oops. Pass that bottle.")


WV: dissneum. "In the olden days, the Romans got all up in each others' business at the Dissneum."

My son particularly liked the video at the end with the "dancing bunny and Sharptooth dinosaur".

Also, I would like a Guinness as large as the second to last cake.

Annette said...

The team name of the high school that my two younger children
attended/attend is called the "Fighting Irish" or just Irish as in "Go Irish" so I was especially amused
by the Kiss Me Irish cookie cake.I imagined someone wanting kisses from the whole school! Happy St.lt. Patrick's Day!

NiteNurse--again! said...

Oh, I forgot. Can't see the video or even a link for it on the itouch. could you do a link? After all, it sounds like it might be C-o-l-i-n!! (yes, youngsters, even older people can have wholly inappropriate crushes on peolple they'll never meet...)

I cannot tell if "Kiss me Irish!" should be used as a come-hither come-on or a belligerent brush-off. I guess it depends upon how many of those beer cakes you've had!

And old family joke based on my family being half Irish and half German (and half English, but my math skills aren't the best so forget about the English for the sake of this joke)

What on Earth are the Mythbusters doing in that music video? (Wait, why am I asking? Who cares? IT'S THE MYTHBUSTERS! THEY MAKE EVERYTHING AT LEAST 20% MORE AWESOME!) <3

Craig said...

#1 First vowel is an 'o'; first letter on second line could be a fancy 'G' (think General Mills logo), third letter on second line is an 'n'. Thus, being fully decoded: 'Hoppy Gan Patrick Day'. *Now* it makes sense.

#2 'Happy *St. Palrick's Day' indeed. Oh, the irony of the long-lost apostrophe, and properly placed, at that. I know food prices are going up, but $22.99 for a cookie? With spelling issues, at that. Kiss me Irish, dude.

#3 Lt. Patricks must feel honored.

#4 Q: "What are we going to do with those watermelon cakes from last summer?" A: "Bring me those pretzels we've been trying to unload -- I have an idea."

#5 Yes, nothing says 'par-tay' like blue cinnamon rolls* and a tall, foamy mug of...lemon pudding.

*I think they're cinnamon rolls. Though they might be something else altogether. No, I have no opinion on how they were cooked, if in fact they were.

#6 Are we implying that Scotland and Ireland are the same? Because that just won't do. You see, for one thing, they're spelled and pronounced differently. (My ancestors are Scottish, and I approved this statement. Just don't mention 'haggis', whatever you do.)

#8 As I said earlier...

#9 This could be the official logo of those anonymous trolls, er, *wonderful folks* who visit CW when we're all in need of correction. Whatever would we do without them.

#10 The shape says 'Valentine's Day', the red / green color scheme says 'Christmas' -- we're talking a minimum three months that these things have been around. Ah, the power of preservatives.

#11 Love the official comment -- snark it up! Uh, wait -- there's something coming over the intercom: "Roy G. Biv to the bakery, please, Roy G. Biv to the bakery."

I think even I was blinded by Pabrick. It doesn't say Pabrick. It's either Pabick or Palrick. The small part of the 'b' is the (alleged) 'r.' It can't be used twice, as that would be against some ordinance somewhere. ;o)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Guessing the Wrecker's train of thought on the fourth cake was an unreasonable amount of fun. "Let's start out with half a watermelon ... then put a crescent of marshmallow fluff at the top ... then, hey, why not, I'll just shove this pretzel in the side. That should do it."

And I seriously thought that other cake said "Kiss me Trish."

Ok why are gingerbread men apparently used for just about every holiday? And they end up being either pervy or covered in poo. Wreckerators must have a hate filled rage with them or something. That or they think that's cute. I fear this bakery.
