I'm no real fan of the suds, despite the hefty percentage of my blood that hails from the Emerald Isle. I have two ceremonial beers a year, one on St. Patrick's Day and one at my in-laws' Oktoberfest party. Unfortunately for me, I happened to be midway through one of those two beers when a song I'd never heard before came on the radio, with the result that a good chunk of it came out my nose accompanied by choking gasps of laughter!
Listen to the words. Really. And Happy early St. Pat's to the lot of ye. :)
Should the video not link properly for whatever reason, search YouTube for The Dubliners' rendition of "The Sick Note." You won't regret it!
