Saint Patrick's Day, Sort Of

Since today is sort of Saint Patrick's Day but sort of not, here is Tiffany, who is dressed like a leprechaun but is not, so far as we know. Bet you thought I was going to use the guy from Holiday Island, ha ha.

Stories featuring things related to Saint Patrick's Day almost always have the Holiday Island guy (e.g., "Restrain Jane Lane! or Stupid Cupid," by Nemo Blank; "Everything Happens For a Reason," by Mahna Mahna; "Holiday Kombat," by Richard Lobinske; "A Curse of Bad Timing," by SoulfulZen). One in a while they feature a leprechaun in a commercial in a scriptfic (e.g., "Snow Darn!" by Patrick Moore). Other than talking about Irish coffee, Irish setters, Irish brogues, Irish jogs, or Irish red beer, not much else comes up. No traditional leprechauns, certainly. No visits to Ireland that I know of. Hmmm.

Wonder what would happen if Saint Patty's Day came back to Lawndale to fulfill his promise to Daria in "Depth Takes a Holiday": "And if there's ever anything I can do for youwhen you've reached the legal drinking age, that islet me know." That'd be interesting. Especially if they got drunk together and . . . mmm, let's skip that part. And the kid.

Fun to think about, though.

The picture is of Tiffany after St. Patrick's day comes back and doesn't find Daria, but runs into Tiffany instead and things...
:)

I still cannot believe no one liked the science-fact post about Uranus. I researched and researched and researched that to death; it took me hours to do it (literally!) but no one commented on it. Oh, but if I put Tiffany in a leprechaun suit, that gets comments. Thank God I am not bitter and can handle this like a mature adult.

:P :P :P :P :P :P

I feel your pain. I did a gag with John Lane about the psychologist at Quiet Ivy being named Jean-Michel and nobody said a word.

:P

Jean-Michel . . . oh. John Michael. D'OH!

Well, see, French humor doesn't translate well into English. That's your whole problem right there.

I'd like to point out that in One Year Later the girls are talking in an outdoor cafe in a small village in Ireland.

I, too, can be unappreciated! :p

Having Beavis and Butt-head and Daria present an up-to-the-minute scientific report on Uranus is a billion zillion nillion times more important some dumb girls sitting around talking in an outdoor cafe in a small village in Ireland. Or France.

I should add that I don't mean to say that all girls are dumb, only the ones sitting around talking in that outdoor cafe in that small village in Ireland. Just to make that clear.

I wish to point out that I am aware that I left out the word "than" in an earlier posting here. I did it on purpose to test the editorial ability of everyone reading this, and everyone failed.

Since I was polite enough not to draw attention to your error, I failed?

Not fair, man. Not fair.
