Important Annowncement re My Nose Day

Yesterday's scores:
  • Gills: yeah, but we lost so don't go there.
  • Simpsons: yes
  • Tesco: yeah! Sam came too, an had his ferst ever ride in the trolley!
  • Nose Hugs Surprizisity Score: 9.5/10
  • Day Score: 7.3984210/10


Hey! Do yu do enything on St Parick's Day??? I do. My nose haz a Irish Flag on it, arfter all. Me an Daddy will be shairin a Ginness an toastin sum Soda Bred (note to self: chek the hunny supplys...)

Well! Today I have discuverd sumthing VERY important:



It shud be on Munday, but nex week is "Holy Week", leedin up to Big Choklit Sunday. An as the religuss amung us will kno, this sellybrates the day wen the Disypols mist the shops (wich had closed erly cos it waz Sunday) an wer embarrasst to discuver that they dident hav eny choklit for wen the Boss popt over arfter lunch. But it waz OK in the end cos the Boss sayeth unto the butter 'behold choklit!' an lo! It chaynged into choklit. This is ov corse where the tradishun ov choklit at Eeaster comes from. Enyway, I digress.... so the church haz sed that yu carnt hav a big Saynte's day in Holy Week, so they ar goin to hav it on Saterday insted!

So! St Patrick's Day iz offishully March 15th this yeer.

I've bin swottin up on this fenominom, an discuverd that the laarst time they had to moov St Patrick's waz in 1940, an the NEX time they will hav to do it will be in the yeer 2160! So it reelly is goin to be VERY speshol this yeer!

Mummy won't be joynin in cos she sez it's silly to, if yor not Irish, wich she issent. Well. There waz sum Irish discuverd wen she did her famly tree, but she werkt owt that this meens she iz abowt 6% Irish. Thus she is entitold to 6% of a pint ov Ginness. Heheheee. WIch is abowt all that is left arfter me an Daddy hav been in there. Enyway she will be bizzy bakin soda bred for us Irish folk. Hahahaa.

Dilly wants to join in too, cos ov bein green. I'm goona let her. It's all bowt bein nice, issent it? Besides, I've never seen an amfibian drunk. Wat culler duzz she go wen sheez sik nex day?

Heer is a wee kwiz to get yu in the mood-

You're 75% Irish

You're very Irish, and most likely from Ireland.

(And if you're not, you should be!)


Giv it a go!

Bye fer now!

Hey, Bob!

Happy Early St Patrick's Day! I'm not very Irish, but St Pat's Day is my adoption anniversary. Yep, that's right. I've been with my hooman girl for almost 1 year, and I've gotta say, she's come a LONG long way!

She and I and Stella all wish we could give you a big Irish hug and smooch! Have a pint for each of us, and be sure to get photos of Dilly!

Thanks too for explaining the Easter/chocolate connection. That clears a lot of things up.

Goober love & smooches,

Bob, with a bear like you around I need never have gone to school, I've learnt so many things. The St Patrick's day factoid is a cracker! And thanks for the explanation of chocolate at easter, it's always puzzled me.

Have a great day - sounds like you'll need to stock up on paracetamols though. Give you Mum a big, big nose hug.

Hi Bob

Our surname is Irish, but we are not Irish, it's just because we had to have the same name as our Dad and his ancestors from absolutely ages ago came from Ireland. Our girl hooman took the Irish quiz and she was in no way whatsoever even registering on the results map.


B.T.Bear (esq.) said...


I am keepin Mummy serplyd wiv tea till her hed gets betta. There ar lots ov biskits abowt, too.



B.T.Bear (esq.) said...


Daddy haz an Irish nayme but waz born in England. But cos his Mummy an Daddy wer born in Northern Ireland he haz an Irish parssport. He duzzent hav an Irish accent tho. Wich is just as well cos Mummy duzzent understand them.

Bob, I'm not Irish 'cause I'm Mexican but I have an Irish last name, so yeah, I'm pretty cool. I took that test and it said I'm 15% Irish, which means I'm not at all. Oh well.

St Patrick's Day is March 17 in the U.S. I'll be thinking about you and your nose.

No Cool Story said...

I'm glad you liked my fancy squirrel picture.
I called it a beaver because once upon a time a beaver was trying to eat my house. Only it turned out the beaver was really a squirrel, but now I trust neither.

Lynda (Granny K) said...

Wahayy, Bob! Oim turty percent Oirish, according tew der test, so oi am, but i'm mostly a gnomy little celt, tew be sure.

Mary said...

I'm not sure but I might have some Irish. My great grandmother's name was Leena I always thought that was a Irish name though they say she was German but I don't know.

Amazing thing about America -- everyone becomes Irish 'bout this time o' year! Weirder still -- everyone wears green, even though most oughta be wearing orange. Still weirder -- we eat stuff, no self-respecting Irishman would ever eat -- like corned beef! (Dunno what that is, 'cept it's not hotdogs!) And, our city, being nothing but Irish this time of year (you know -- with last names like Petroski, Cucci, Schmidt, Smith, Nutter, and Bear), we celebrate St. Patty's Day with a big parade with lots and lots and lots of girls with big curly hair held back with a hairband and all dressed in velvet green doing River Dance (or maybe it's an Irish jig?!) on the first Sunday in March. Our St. Patty's parade was on the 6th, but, we're sure, if we go to South St. ("the hippest street in town") on the 14th-17th, we'll find lotsa drunks peeing green!

Erin Go Braughedly Yours,
Spauld and Ted T.
