The Wearin' O' The Green - Irish Folk, Traditional

Today I saw an old man walking along the street here in town.
Nothing unusual about that you might think?
OMFG, unusual does NOT even begin to describe him.
Top to bottom or bottom to top?
Lets go bottom to top...yes I did say that!

Shoes - white sneakers
Knee high socks - GREEN
Skirt! I shit you not darlins!
I think? it was supposed to be some kind of Kilt but no, alas, it was a WOMANS skirt...in charcoal grey, pleated...
T-Shirt - green with a humungus shamrock in "bling" (a wee bit o' the diamante )
Hat - Felt, Top Hat, green and white strips.

Walking along the street, Happy as a Sandboy!
It's just WRONG.
What is the matter with these people?
To clarify, Eejits like "the above" would be laughed right OUT OF IRELAND !
I am deadly ( but you knew that!) serious when I say that I am GLAD yes, GLAD, that "our" patron Saint, (that would be St Andrew, for those of you not in the know) is NOT recognised here.
It's sacrilege.
A mockery.
To all of those who claim Irish heritage...today would be a good day to go to church.

Aye it's a sad state of affairs but HEY lets put green dye in beer, wear feckin STUPID clothes and have a FECKIN PARADE...Go TEAM USA!

Oh my, I may have just lost all of my readers...

You mean in California they don't go around at the end of November dressed like pilgrims but with a necklace of haggises, a pair of big white socks with a little plastic sword, and a big Saltire painted across their mugs?

Maryland is stranger than I thought.

Abbot - If they do I think I might have noticed? lol
