According to Wikipedia, St Patrick's Day is the day we observe the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It was turned into an official holiday in the early 17th century to celebrate Christianity coming to Ireland. In fact the whole "St. Patty drove the snakes out of Ireland" was an allegory against the druids back then. Since then, the holiday has become very commercialized, dealing with food, drinks, pinching and the color green.

As heard this morning on the Todd & Timmy show, we played The Scotsman by Bryan Bowers, a tradition that 94.5 KATS has enjoyed for the past 20 years. Only problem is, technically, a Scotsman is not Irish. In fact, never confuse the two. A fight could happen! So I thought I'd bring you a nice comedy song, that actually deals with the Irish, and St. Patrick's Day. A song by comedian & musician Stephen Lynch called "Down To The Old Pub Instead." Enjoy (below), but keep in mind, it's NSFW (Not Safe For Work)... and NSFR... (Not Safe For Radio) either!

The song is an age old tale. A tale that teaches young men what to do, when that special time of the month comes to their special lady. Not only an Irish song, not only a funny song... but a very educational song as well. For more things, educational, entertaining, and a little NSFW, join Todd & Timmy on 94.5 KATS, every weekday morning at 7a, right after The Free Beer & Hotwings Show, & don't forget to get the Free KATS Mobile App!

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
