St. Patrick's Day Trivia Q: What are the popular symbols for St. Patrick's Day? A: The most common St Patrick's Day symbol is the shamrock. The shamrock is the leaf of the clover plant and a symbol of the Holy Trinity. Many people choose to wear the color green and the flag of the Republic of Ireland is often seen in St Patrick’s Day parades around the world. Irish brands of drinks are popular at St Patrick’s Day events. Religious symbols include snakes and serpents, as well as the Celtic cross. Some say that Saint Patrick added the sun, a powerful Irish symbol, onto the Christian cross to create what is now called a Celtic cross. Other Irish-related symbols seen on St Patrick’s Day include the harp, which was used in Ireland for centuries, as well as a mythological creature known as the leprechaun and a pot of gold that the leprechaun keeps hidden.

"May your pockets be heavy, and your heart be light... may good luck pursue you, each morning and night!" Happy St. Patrick's Day, from everyone at Mulligan's, Butler's and the Ramada Saskatoon!
St. Patrick's Day Trivia Q: So, does all this talk about St. Patrick, mean that St. Patrick's Day is a religious holiday? A: Luke Wadding, a Franciscan scholar born in 1588 in Waterford, on the south coast of Ireland, was influential in ensuring that the anniversary of St Patrick's death became a feast day in the Catholic Church. Many Catholic churches traditionally move St Patrick's Day to another date if March 17 falls during Holy Week. In the 19th and 20th centuries, Many immigrants from Ireland fled to other parts of the world, including Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. Many Irish customs, including the St Patrick’s Day celebrations, became quite popular in these countries. However, much of the interest in the St Patrick’s Day events is largely commercially driven in the 21st century. (Source: http://www.timeanddate.DOTcom/holidays/common/st-patrick-day
St. Patrick's Day Trivia Q: Did St. Patrick really drive all the snakes out of Ireland? A: According to popular legend, St Patrick rid Ireland of snakes. However, it is thought that there have been no snakes in Ireland since the last ice age. The "snakes" that St Patrick banished from Ireland, may refer to the druids or pagan worshipers of snake or serpent gods. (Source: http://www.timeanddate.DOTcom/holidays/common/st-patrick-day)
St. Patrick's Day Trivia Q: Where was the first St. Patrick's Day Parade held? A: The first St. Patrick's Day parade was held in the United States. The Irish have been celebrating the feast of St. Patrick since the ninth century, but the first recorded parade anywhere was in Boston in 1737. Ireland did not have a parade of its own until 1931, in Dublin. Even today, 18 out of the 20 largest St. Patrick's Day parades are in the U.S. (Source: ABC News)
St. Patrick's Day Trivia Q: Was St. Patrick Irish? A: St. Patrick, the Apostle of Ireland, was born in Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, which is in Scotland. His birth name was actually Maewyn Succat. It wasn't until he was in the Church that it was changed to Patricius, or Patrick. As a teenager, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and enslaved as a shepherd for several years.

Mulligan's Joke of the Day: Father O'Reilly was driving down to Boston when got stopped for speeding in Medford. The highway patrol officer smelled alcohol on the priest's breath and then saw an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He said, 'Father, have you been drinking?' 'Only water', replied Father O'Reilly. The policeman asked, 'Then how come I can smell wine?' The priest looked at the bottle and said, 'Good Lord! He's done it again.'
Mulligan's Joke of the Day: Question: You are driving in a car at a constant speed. On your left side is a 'drop off', (The ground is 18-20 inches below the level you are traveling on), and on your right side is a fire engine traveling at the same speed as you. In front of you is a galloping horse, which is the same size as your car and you cannot overtake it. Behind you is a galloping zebra. Both the horse and zebra are also traveling at the same speed as you. What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation? Answer: Get your drunken self the heck off the merry-go-round!

Mulligan's Joke of the Day: Ben Franklin said: "In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria". In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) --- the bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop. However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting. Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

Mulligan's Joke of the Day: A little pig walks into a bar, orders a drink and asks direction to the lavatories. The barman tells him where the gents are and the pig hurries off to relieve himself. A second little pig then comes in, orders a drink and asks for the lavatories. Again the barman tells the pig where to go and the pig hurries away. This happens two more times, and the barman is beginning to wonder what the heck is going on. Just then, a fifth little pig then appears and orders a drink. ‘I suppose you’ll want to know where the toilets are, too’ says the barman. ‘No,’ replies the pig. ‘I’m the one that goes wee-wee-wee all the way home.’
Mulligan's Joke of the Day: It was Deer Hunting Season, and a man and his friend were enjoying the day hunting. Their travels brought them near a blacktop highway. A huge buck walked by and the hunter carefully drew his bow and took careful aim. Before he could release his arrow, his friend pointed at a funeral procession passing on the road below their stand. The hunter slowly let off the pressure on his bow, took off his hat, bowed his head and closed his eyes in prayer. His friend was amazed. "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are the kindest man I have ever known." The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we were married for 35 years."
Mulligan's Joke of the Day: A burglar broke into a house one night. He shone his flashlight around looking for valuables and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack a strange voice echoed from the dark, saying: "JESUS IS WATCHING YOU" He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a holiday after the next big score, then clicked the light back on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "JESUS IS WATCHING YOU". Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot. "Yep" the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you!" The burglar relaxed........"Warn me, huh? Who the heck are you?" "Moses", replied the bird. "Moses"! the burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot "Moses"? The bird promptly replied "Probably the same kind of people who would name their Rottweiler "Jesus"...

Mulligan's Joke of the Day: A man was sitting at a bar when he noticed a pirate walk in the front door. The pirate had a peg leg, a hook for one hand, and a patch over one eye. Feeling sorry for the pirate, the man said, "Come over here friend. You look like you've had a hard life and I'd like to buy you a drink." The pirate came over and ordered a Spiced Rum. "Just out of curiosity," the man said, "how did you lose your leg?" "Arrrgh!" said the pirate, "I lost that timber to a tiger shark in the Caribbean when I was thrown overboard for stealing a man's rum." "That's just terrible. How did you lose your hand?" the man said. "Arrrgh!" said the pirate, "I lost that fighting cannibals off Madagascar under Admiral Hawk." "Oh my!" the man said, "I can't even imagine! How did you lose your eye?" "Arrrgh! A seagull pooped in it!" said the pirate. "A seagull!" the man exclaimed. "Is seagull poop dangerous?!" "Nay, matey, it was me first day with the hook..."
Mulligan's Joke of the Day: One day a duck walks in a store and ask the manager if they have any grapes for sale. The manager says, "No, we don't sell grapes." The duck goes home, but comes back the next day and asks the same question. The manager says the same thing again, "No, we don't sell grapes." The duck goes home again, but comes back the very next day, and asks the manager once again, if they have any grapes for sale. This time the manager yells, "NO, we don't sell grapes! If you come here and ask me that one more time, I will nail your beak to the floor!" Once again, the duck goes home. The next day, the duck comes back in a very chipper mood, and asks the manager if he has any nails for sale. The manager says, "No, I don't have any nails." The duck laughs and says, "Okay, good! Do you sell grapes?"
One day two potatoes (who were best friends), were walking together down the street. They stepped off the curb and a speeding truck came around the corner and ran one of them over. The uninjured potato called 911 and helped his injured friend as best he was able. The injured potato was taken to emergency at the hospital and rushed into surgery. After a long and agonizing wait, the doctor finally appeared. He told the uninjured potato, "I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through." "The bad news is that he's going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life". (Once again, stay tuned for more potato jokes...)
