Three Irish Limericks

There once was a master chef Fred,

Who fed me Irish Soda Bread.

After only one taste,

It expanded my waist,

Now I’m happy, content and well fed.

Homemade Irish Soda Bread

Homemade Irish Soda Bread

With goofy green hats that look garish,

Surrounded by friends that we cherish,

It’s the one time of year

We can drink lots of beer

And pretend we’re a little bit Irish.

A little goofy

A little goofy

This day that’s to honor St. Paddy,

Is a ruse and I know that sounds catty.

It’s all about beer,

Loud, unbridled cheer,

Getting drunk, wearing green, being happy.

It's not easy being green

It’s not easy being green

May the farce be with you!

Fractured Cliché #20

Chicago is a green city – at least on St. Patrick’s day. The celebration starts when the river is dyed green which is followed by a parade.

People dressed in green gather in bars drinking green beer overlooking the green river. As they drink, their inhibitions drop and they start to sing. As the luck o’ the Irish has it, this is the perfect lead-in to today’s Fractured Cliché.

Fractured Cliché:  When Irish guys are smiling

Correct Cliché:  When Irish eyes are smiling

Technically this isn’t a cliché, it’s the beginning of a song. However, if the Fractured Cliché was a song, I envision it would go something like this:

When Irish guys are smiling,

You can hear the angels sing.

In the midst of drunken laughter,

It’s just the beer talking.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,


Irish Rovers
