It was better than the transvaginal-sonogram float in Virginia, trust me

Haley Barbour provided the theme for one float at Jackson's St. Paddy's Day parade this year:


  1. Thanks for posting the picture. I confess I have never understood how a day to honor a Celtic saint turned in to what it is today.JL

  2. It goes back further than I'd have guessed - colonial days.

    Here's something weird I never knew: originally, St. Patrick's color was blue. Imagine *that*. I'm thinking no parades if everyone's dressed in blue. It would be like the most depressed festivity ever ... people couldn't even work up the enthusiasm to raise their hands for beads, eh, what's the point ....
