Everybody’s Irish With A Quart O’ Whiskey In ‘Em

A bottle of Jameson's Irish Whiskey.

Modern Drunkard Magazine suggests we chase the snakes out of our minds, for as Yeats reminds us:

The problem with some people is that when they’re not drunk, they’re sober.

(Ryan points out that you can have that quote, along with three others from quipsters Dylan Thomas, W.C. Fields, and Oscar Wilde on shot glasses.)

But Modern Drunkard and Yeats (despite his fine heritage) have it wrong. Saint Patty’s Day isn’t about getting drunk or being drunk, it’s about getting silly enough to think you can dance a jig or sing a song. And while you’re doing it, take pictures.

One thought on “Everybody’s Irish With A Quart O’ Whiskey In ‘Em

  1. One of my favorite drunk quotes is from the TV series MASH (no surprise.) Similar to the Yeats quote:

    “One disadvantage to being sober is knowing exactly how you feel.”

    I don’t know what it is, but there seem to be more reasons to not be sober than there are to be drunk.
