Here’s a lady in New York who’s upset with a t-shirt that reads, “I may not be an Irish girl but I drink like one”. What’s the big deal? St. Paddy’s day is just around the corner and every bar that begins with the letter ‘O’ will be serving out beer as fast as they can pour it. “Why can’t they quote Oscar Wilde or say something positive”, she whines. Simple, Oscar Wilde is not funny (or as sexy) as the thought of drunk Irish girls. It’s called humor and people that get the joke have a ‘sense of humor’. Jeez…sometimes I feel like I have to explain everything. Don’t worry lady, if you match the stereotype we’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you…unless you’re not laughing in which case we ARE laughing at you.
Humor has a mandate to poke
At the way people see other folk.
If a slogan on a shirt
Gets a burr up your skirt
Then you’re now the ‘butt’ of the joke.
