I'll spend St. Patty's day just wishin' that I were Irish. Unfortunately, I was switched at birth, and sent home with a stodgy German/Luxembourgish couple. No leprechauns, no Darby O'Gill, no pot o'gold for us. It's so sad, especially when you stop to consider those awful sausages. So when you raise your glass of Irish beer, just thank yer lucky stars that your ancestors are Irish on St. Paddy's Day!
