An American Tragedy

    So Dr. J shows up at my work the other day and decides to take me out to dinner.

    Keep in mind the only thing nearby are fast food joints. I decided on McDonalds over BK or Wendy's because of the Shamrock Shake. I had completely forgot about it, but a girl at work had one the other day.

    We get there, and the bitch at the counter says they're not serving them until Friday.

    This was Monday. What is March without one Mickey D's Shamrock Shake.

    The state I currently live in doesn't even SELL the fucking Shamrock Shake. Oh, how I long for one.

    Fuck you, regional decisions!

    Oh, Inky. Google it.

    It's like the mint grasshopper crack of shakes. Love those things. Used to get one every Saturday when I was growing up and I'd go to my dad's work to spend the afternoon while my mom did the books. Chicken McNuggets and a Shamrock Shake...spring in Independence, Ohio.

    It's not at every McDonald's. And it's the only reason to go into a McDonald's.

    I wonder if Shamrock, Texas (only 150 or so miles from the ding dong daddies in Dumas) has shamrock shakes. Probably not.

    There are no shamrock shakes in the Teutonic purgatory where I am at the moment. Shamrock shakes are about as Celtic as Ho Chi Minh, but as far as Yankee kitsch on St. Patrick's day goes, I'll take a shamrock shake over Bud Light dyed green. Or that bullshit Killian's Irish (!!) Red, made by the douchenozzles at Coors.

    Here's a real fucking tragety: all the FOUR LEAF CLOVERS being used to represent Ireland and/or St. Patrick's Day. It's a shamrock, bitches! Three leaves! Comes from St. Patrick using the shamrock to explain the concept of the Trinity. Three motherfucking leaves, or, if you're Canadian, three gosh-darn leafs! Stop with the four-leaf clovers, for if ye don't I will torment ye and after I'm dead me ghost'll haunt ye!

    I thought we were going to get a Theodore Dreiser reference about the diaries of Chester Gillette -- the real-life model for Dreiser's main character Clyde Griffiths in "An American Tragedy" -- being donated to Hamilton College.

    Boy, was I wrong. Perhaps I should have saved that reference for the Jeopardy thread that I'm currently taking shots on. ;D
