erin go bragh!

happy st. patrick's day! i'm off to find some green beer. enjoy this collection of vintage postcards!
i love this card--smoking a peace pipe while hiding their weapons of mutual destruction behind their backs...i wonder how long it took them to put the smackdown on each other?

run piggie, run!

divil pig!

aye, a comely lass and a wee piggie--pigs were a traditional symbol of st. patrick's day as well as the shamrock--the pigs represented prosperity and the shamrock luck; the comely lass probably represented both of those things.

hard to say if this is written in gaelic or if the copy editor celebrated st. patrick's day before going to work...either way i kinda sound like this, too, after a tankard of guinness.
