Yup, it’s that time of year again. The time where the majority of American’s insult their so-called “Irish heritage” by declaring our patron saint’s national holiday to be “St. Patty’s Day”.
So, as is an Irish Twitter tradition, it’s time to @-reply every erroneously quoting “Patty’s” and to teach them the proper method to refer to their green-sick, beer-drinking day. Generally though, mostly we just picket those tweets that are retweeted by the every loving @paddynotpatty account.
Of course, there are still some Americans who are aware of the right way to say it and will gladly attempt to teach their bretheren, even though it’s probably a useless endeavour as most Americans don’t give two shits about who they are insulting (see: Urban Outfitters, and Nike).

Although I do like to see the humility expressed by some bigger names once they have been enlightened!
Things I’ve learned it the past 10 mins. 1) I have a lot more Irish followers than I realized. 2) I need to stop calling it “Patty’s Day”.

Anyway, back to the tirade/genocide/whacking day/witch hunt/whatever the fuck you want to call it.
