I love this episode of the Simpson’s.
This episode is, sadly, not that far from the truth. Local parades had extra police officers on duty because of that fact. I know it’s an Irish parade, but they have other things! Like…potatoes. And really bad food. Like, epically bad. My grandfather is Irish and my mom speaks in horror of the stuff he ate, including corned beef boiled cabbage, meat and potatoes ad nauseum…Needless to say, I’ve never seen her produce one of these recipes. Nor do I wish to.
But you don’t see parades where people whip tasteless food at each other. And we aren't even taking into account the religious component of the holiday.
Okay. Rant is done. Just please-please-please don’t celebrate the day by drinking a beer.
