Wednesday Mind Hump

If I'm not mistaken, Friday is St. Patrick's Day. That means it's time for some Irish-related questions for the Mind Hump!

1. What's your favorite Lucky Charms marshmallow shape? And do you ever eat the cereal part of it too?

Stars are big in my memory. Then again, that may be from hitting my head on the foot rail when I fell off my bar stool...

2. How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

I used to get drunk. Then I started getting drunk every day. Now I get sober and watch all the drunks. I'm not sure which is harder – staying sober or pretending to understand the drunks around me.

3. What's your favorite Irish or Celtic song or artist?
Danny Boy as sung by just about anyone with a decent voice. Gets me every time.
The last question comes from famous Irish comic Jerry O'Seinfeld

4. Corned beef - ya got beef, but where's the corn? What is the deal?

Come on, Jerry. Stop with the schtick. “Corning” refers to packing a beautiful, luscious, brisket in rock salt until any vestige of beef or life or flavor has been banished. One then boils the living shit out of the hunk of dehydrated beef until it swells like a floater from the Hudson River after a two week trip through the tidal basin at the end of a tow rope on a garbage scow. This you pull apart into stringy bits and serve up with a greasy gravy, a huge mound of cabbage boiled to smithereens and the essential Irish food, boiled potatoes that have been boiled the Irish Mammy's way on top of the stove in an open pot for twelve hours while she went to the store, got her hair done, had a “few” down to the pub and returned just in time to dowse the flames erupting from inside the pot.

There, that just makes you want to order a “New England Boiled Dinner” tonight, don't it? And I didn't even start to tell you about the turnips and rutabaga pie...

The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you've finished, return here and leave us a comment so we'll know you've humped. Be sure your hump is linked back to so others can hump too.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn't inspire you then simply "pass" it. Just use your imagination!

If you don't have a blog or you're an exhibitionist *woo hoo* feel free to hump right here in our comments section. There's absolutely no pressure ... although it's called the Wednesday Mind Hump you can hump on any day.

Until next time, this is your music-loving mememeister wishing you a happy hump day!
