Happy Saint Patrick's Day


Hi Everybody,

The Pug is part Irish (which probably explains the shifty eyes). Here is a favorite of mine.

What's Irish and stays out all night?

BURP

Serena Joy said...

Don't worry, I won't post any Irish jokes. I already plastered my own site with so many that I'm feeling pretty green.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Pug.:)

RevRee said...

I'm not Irish... but, I've had Irish in me a few times....HA!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

puerileuwaite said...

Scary - I'm always up for the Good Irish Humor truck to come rollin' through the neighborhood.

***

Serena - I know. I've been reading them! Here's another one:

What's the difference between an Irish Wedding and an Irish Funeral?

One less drunk.

(Thank you. I'll be here all night.)

***

Rev - Didn't I warn you to stay away from the Blarney Stoners? Your child may come out looking like Scary.

Serena Joy said...

Keep 'em coming. I may be up all night.:)

Enemy of the Republic said...

Here's to the Chicago River dyed green. A happy one to you, my friend.

cathy said...

great blog you,ve been linked

tfg said...

Does the Good Irish Humor Truck sell Antabuse Smoothies?

puerileuwaite said...

Serena - You called "me blarney". Those were the only two that I could think of, that I hadn't seen on your (and others') blog(s). All I can hope for now is to somehow redeem myself at Easter.

***

Enemy - That tradition has always cracked me up. Talk about government redundancy. As if they have to waste dye in the first place. All it does is make the bodies at the bottom blend in more.

***

Cathy - Welcome to the flock! As the newest member of the White Sheep, we'll do our best to keep you safe from wolves near and afar.

***

TFG - Now you've done it. For once I actually try to do something POSITIVE for society; on a MASSIVE scale, no less. I could've made the history books as "The Pug who sobered up the Irish in America". But now you have betrayed my confidence.

So I guess it's on to "Plan B": Hair care products for Italians that secretly REMOVE the oily buildup.

Enemy of the Republic said...

Well, when I lived there, I couldn't tell the difference. The river is so polluted. But now it is hot property as a ton of condos and townhouses, all ridiculously overpriced are on its shores. Why anyone would want to live by that smelly river, in its various shades of green, is beyond me?

gautami tripathy said...

I can post Sardar(sikh for you) jokes but I will not..

Serena Joy said...

You can redeem yourself at Easter by taking up my pet cause -- the abuse and eating alive of Peeps.

puerileuwaite said...

Enemy - As P.T. Barnum once said, "There's a sucker born every minute." Especially when it comes to real estate. Maybe they need to reverse the flow again, just to give it a good flush.

***

Gautami - I didn't get it at first (I can be slow on the uptake), but I LOVE it!

***

Serena - I love Peeps too. But ... how can I put this ... delicately? ... It's hard to get a Peep out of me.

leelee said...

omg....

Pug!!!! I was going through my fav blogs in alphabetical order...in my favorites list...so I hadn't gotten to yours till now...I JUST commented on serena's..and left a joke there...

The punch line was PADDY-O FURNITURE...except my joke is different:

What's green and sits behind your house on your deck?

I am laughing really hard now...cuz...well...looks like I got the joke wrong..and it only reconfirms the fact that I am most definately the WORST joke teller of all time...I will cease and desist my attempts at joke telling immediately.

~BLUSH~ LOL

Serena Joy said...

It is hard, Pug. It takes a special little surgical procedure, but it can be done. Just don't rustle any of MY Peeps.

/t. said...

peeps
in the
microwave
is a favorite party
activity here in the north country

(due only to the fact we are out of bbq season... and a current shortage of pugs)

/t.

Reverend Sumangali Tania Pink said...

woah. i just made the same joke today at the st paddy's day parade here with my friends in London.

we don't have patios here. it went over like a lead baloon.

hope you don't still feel green today after st. paddy's night out!
xx
pinks

Serena Joy said...

Oh, no, /t.! Microwaving the poor things is some of the very abuse I'm trying to stamp out.:)

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - That's okay. We all have our gifts. I have this, and also my uncanny ability to predict the plots in Stephen King novels.

***

Serena - As long as you keep them away from my windows when I'm taking a bath or getting dressed, it's a deal.

***

/t. - Maybe you're onto something with microwaving them. Maybe that way they won't sandpaper the intestine so much as they migrate south.

***

Reverend - Well it appears that you, Leelee and yours truly have quite the "joke triangle" going on here. Coincidence? Well, that's what the conspirators would have you believe ...

***

Serena - I'm with you. Anything to build up support for "Crimes Against Wildlife" charges against /t.

cathy said...

They might have to start a grey sheep section or even a pickled sheep. I've just come back from another party. 3 bacardis thankyou very much.

Enemy of the Republic said...

Ah, so you know about the flow job too. In Chicago, the politicians think they literally control the elements. Even when there are corruption trials, I figure it's like what Clemenza said to Michael: You need a war every 10 years or so--gets rid of the bad blood.

cathy said...

I've been linked, Thankyou.
so about Irish jokes.

..Why have the Arabs got oil and the Irish potatoes?
because the Irish had the first choice.

So come back in a hundred yaers and see who's still laughing :)

Little Lamb said...

Happy St. Paddy's Day a day late.

leelee said...

:-)

puerileuwaite said...

Cathy - ANOTHER party. Wow. They sure seem to take St. Patrick's Day seriously over there! No wonder Jackie K. wanted to become Jackie O.

***

Enemy - Yes, but like everywhere else anymore, it's "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss ..."

***

Cathy - Good point. If it turns out that potatoes are indeed the fuel of the 21st century, we can rest assured that the Irish will prove to be stable and rational energy barons (and that religious differences will not become a factor).

***

Lamby - Not only that, where's your green?

***

Leelee - Was that a "leer"? God, I sure hope it was ... (we need to catch up, BTW).

Little Lamb said...

My green is on my blog with green lamb. :-)

leelee said...

uh... yes we do pugsly....I believe it is YOUR turn.

queen leer

Puggy that reminds me, it's my turn.

puerileuwaite said...

Lamby - I shall look forward to it. But for now ... ... ... I'm ... off to see the Wizard! The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!

(Shaaaaaron! There's a bloody strawman in the foyer, and the bloody dog is pissin' on 'im 'again!)

No, I wrote Wizard of Oz, NOT the Blizzard of Ozz!

Little Lamb said...

Have a good sleep puggy.

It's Me, Maven... said...

HOpe your St. Pat's was pugalicious!!

Malnurtured Snay said...

I had a funny joke ... then lost it. Alas. Happy St. Patty's Day!

puerileuwaite said...

Lamby - Actually, I did!

***

Maven - It was okay, except that I forgot to have corned beef and cabbage. Oh well, maybe the supermarkets will have discounted corned beef now. Or not.

***

MalSnay - I get that way too. For every joke I'm able to remember, there's five that I forget. Wait'll next year, I suppose.

Enemy of the Republic said...

Gotta go visit my lambie soon. I just love her.

kate said...

omg that was lame!! You cant be Irish with that humor!! lmao

jk

Hope it was a great day! I sat in a pub on the ship with a guy dressed in green with his entire (exposed bits) painted green! I couldnt do the green beer so I opted for Key Lime Pie Martinis! yum!!

cheers

kate said...

OMG loling at revree's comment

O>>>M>>>G>>> lol

cathy said...

Who said anything about St Pat?
I.ve been known to have a coming out party for a zit on my chin.

Little Lamb said...

Why do I like my favorite movie so much? Hmmm, let me see...

Mayden's Voyage said...

Happy 1st day of Spring Pug- almost :)
Hope it is a lovely day in your part of the world :)

Did you know that Scary Monster arrived at my house on St. Pats day- and we drank Martini's and watched James Bond???

We had FUN ;)

puerileuwaite said...

Enemy - Um, okay.

***

Kate - What kind of ship are you on? They need to check for gas leaks from the cargo hold, and/or proximity to the "Triangle".

***

Cathy - I am SO there. In the meantime, I'll be on the lookout for "Zorba the Greek" on Cable, just to get my mojo up to par for the trip.

***

Lamby - Why are you asking me? I'm more of a Willy Wonka buff.

***

FM - It's been FANTASTIC. Warm and sunny, and part of the reason why I still have this St. Padddy's Day post up. How I have missed it. Heck, I even have Chicago's "Alive Again" stuck in my head.

Let me get this straight: you let Scary IN the house? With the "good" China? You must have very comprehensive homeowner's insurance.

kate said...

I refuse to discuss my triangle with you Pug! *wink

It was some big white ship sailing through warm royal blue waters... I do miss the views... and the drink specials! lol

Party Girl said...

and you gave me grief over my jokes during October....sheesh

puerileuwaite said...

Kate - Fine. Be that way. But I'll still discuss my Bermuda shorts with you, because I'm above the pettiness.

***

Party Girl - That was the "old" me. I've grown since then.

Little Lamb said...

I enjoyed Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.

puerileuwaite said...

Lamby - Wasn't he great? One of his finest roles, no doubt, along with his characters in:

1) Young Frankenstein
2) The Producers
3) Stir Crazy
4) Silver Streak.

Little Lamb said...

Wasn't he also in Blazing Saddles?

I loved Stir Crazy. I loved him with Richard Pryor.

puerileuwaite said...

How could I forget Blazing Saddles?

Scary Monster said...

Pug me be totally housebroken!
And able to compose me self with dignity as a guest on occasion. Just keep me away from the pets and thinds will be OK.

Gene (we just happen to be on a first name basis, you know)was also great in the Frisco Kid

puerileuwaite said...

Scary - I trust you. And I am embarrassed to admit that I don't recall seeing The Frisco Kid. I'll be on the lookout for it.

cathy said...

999,948 to go.

limpy99 said...

"Hey, where the white women at?"

Still one of the greatest lines in cinematic history.

I took the family out for dinner on St. Patrick's day and had the Irish 7-course special.

A six-pack of Guinness and a boiled potato.

puerileuwaite said...

Cathy - Lucky for you, I DON'T have a "million of 'em". So reluctantly and begrudgingly, I've have to churn out a new post.

***

Limpy - THAT, my friend, was a CLASSIC!
