How Better to Lift the Spirits Than With the Irish?!

... in certainly more than one way.* :P

If you ever get a chance to listen to "It's Saturday Night" by the Proclaimers, do so. Imagine, if you will, a bluegrass/bluesy ballad sung by a bunch of (most likely drunk) Irishmen. Just to give you an idea, here's a bit from the lyrics:


...The drink that I had
Three hours ago
Has been joined by
Fourteen others
In a steady flow...

...Cause when I go home
And fall on my bed
If it doesn't
Leave my stomach
It'll split my head...


Granted, I don't really have personal experience with which to relate this to. However, it's so freakin' funny. The way the song is done, it's hilarious! The music lines up so well with the mental image of this blissfully drunk Irishman. That, and it's a perfect example of really good limericks.

Anyway, this entry really doesn't mean much other than the fact that I was highly amused with this song and I couldn't help but share it.



* - A double entendre (spirits, as in morale or mood, and spirits, as in alcoholic drinks).
