Posted:I don't know how many ppl are famillar with the Kelly O'Brian's Restaurant chain (It's an Irish pub/restaurant chain in western Canada)
but I was in there on Sat celibrating a friends b-day. And while enjoying my Guinness I noticed this in the menu. It's the Irish view on life according to Kelly O's:

You only have two things to worry about in life:
If you're well you have nothing to worry about,
If you're sick then all you have to worry about is whether you live or die,
If you live you have nothing to worry about,
If you die then all you have to worry about is whether you go to heaven or hell,
If you go to heaven then you have nothing to worry about,
If you go to hell then you'll be to busy hugging all your friends to worry.

Kinda simplifies things doesn't it? Thought I'd share it.


In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.

Posted:I used to have that on a tea-towel on the wall in my kitchen biggrin

here's a few other neat ones:

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!

----------------------------------------------------------
There are many good reasons for drinking,
One has just entered my head-
If a man doesn't drink when he's living,
How the hell can he drink when he's dead?

unfortunately the drink-related ones were all i could remember ! biggrin

Slinte!! beerchug


My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely smile

"I know a good deal more than a boiled carrot."
"Fire!" "Where?" "Nowhere, I was just illustrating the misuse of free speech."

Posted:I'm Irish (well my ansestors(Sp?) were) and its weird when I'm drinking or upset I pick up a pretty strong Irish accent with out even trying. I guess it's genetiaclly programmed.

Posted:i just like the Irish blessing:

may those who love you, love you!
and may those who don't, may God turn their hearts!
and if he can't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we can tell the fuckers by their limp!


I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.
