Re: “Line-Jumping Scum

Amusing that the above comment questions the awareness of who Saint Patrick is, but seems blissfully unaware of some very important facts:

1. It is not a question of what is an "appropriate" abbreviation of Patrick. It is a question of what the actual abbreviation is. As any Irish person will tell you, Patrick is shortened to "Paddy" in Irish. "Patty" is never used for that purpose. It's a girls name. End of.

2. Saint Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. Jesus is not the Patron Saint of Israel. And when half of Halifax is colored green and covered in Shamrocks and "Party Like the Irish" T-Shirts, I don't think you can suddenly declare the day to be independent of Irish connections.

3. I suppose Rafiki would prefer that we celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in a more appropriate manner, presumably by banishing all snakes from the city. I am not so sure this take on the holiday would be so popular, to be honest.
