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.

Corned beef and cabbage giveaways in bars.

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

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

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

Rollicking Irish pub music.

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!
