Good and Bad Ideas to Celebrate St. Patty's Day

As with pretty much every holiday around the year, retailers and restaurants are looking for ways to capitalize and squeeze a few dollars out of consumers. There are good and bad ways to go about doing this.

Good:
Corned beef and cabbage giveaways in bars.

Bad:
Corned beef and cabbage pizza. No lie, this was advertised in a local paper.

Good:
Green themed accessories, i.e. cups, plates, silverware, etc.

Bad:
Green themed food that isn't normally green. Adding green food coloring to things can be nasty and stomach churning.

Good:
Rollicking Irish pub music.

Bad:
Not so rollicking Irish funeral dirges.

And that's about all I've got thus far. Celebrate the day, have a good time and all but stay away from green beer and greened food.

Also, here are some alternative lifestyle changes to celebrate the day.
St. Flatty's Day - the holiday for small chested women.
St. Fatty's Day - the stoner holiday.
St. Catty's Day - the day for cat fights with cougars and cougars in training.
St. Hatty's Day - haberdasher's delight.
St. Satty's Day - the day for time shifted people to pretend its Saturday.
St. Nappy's Day - the dreadlock attack holiday.
St. Sappy's Day - the day for maudlin reminiscences. (as an aside, I love the word maudlin).

I could go on and on and on but we'll stop here, there's tech work to get to doing! Cue the superhero theme music!
