Hello and top o’ the mornin’ to ya. Today we are not talking “green with envy”. The “being green” in the headline refers to the day that is in it.
Hooray, it’s St Patrick’s Day!!!
Look who is celebrating with a little jig ‘n’ reel:
Why the frown, Richard? Don’t you know? Today’s the day when everybody pretends they’re Irish!
Anyway, there is a bit of a tradition on this blog that I am creating a RAPS every Paddy’s Day. Well, I only started the tradition in 2016, but that means there are three previous Paddy’s Day shrines:
Previous Paddy’s Day RAPS’ have always been on the small side… So now for a little bit of variety, I bring you this year’s green wonder…
As you can see, the tin already comes with a lovely design on it. It’s one of Squirrel’s sanitary towel tins. The colour of the outside is actually veering towards turquoise rather than green, but it kind of fit. Now for the Irish content:
Too right, it’s not easy being green. Especially as those
pesky fans always say that they love Richard in black… That biceps though… UNF
You didn’t think I’d ignore this gem when talking about green, did you? It’s original Richard during TH promo in Australia in this interview.
Newbies: Keep watching that video! You will be rewarded at about 6:15 with a scene that will probably make you faint if you imagine yourself there. Anyway, back to Richard and Kermit. So cute… That’s how we like him – always up for a little joke.
I have the privilege of being green every day.
Well, sort of. I still haven’t applied for that passport but one of these days… Is anyone else in need of a little Irish in their lives? If so, here’s the good news: I am raffling this green beauty off. If you want it, all you’ve got to do is leave me a comment here on the blog. I’ll send this RAPS anywhere in the world at no extra cost to the winner. The comments for the raffle are open until Wednesday, 20 March, 8am – which is actually the official first day of spring! A great day to announce the winner of the green RAPS. Wishing you best of luck!
And now –
Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!
