St. Patrick's Day: The 10 Best and Worst of "Irish"

Your Uncle Buck is off on his favorite non-gift giving holiday St. Patrick's Day so here is the list in advance of the 10 Best and Worst things about being Irish:

10. Irish Music:

Word to your moms I came to drop bombs, I got more rhymes than the bible's got psalms...

9. Troy O'Leary:

The, um, Irishman who was nicknamed "Yummy" had 7 RBI for the Red Sox in Game 5 of the 1999 ALDS vs. Cleveland...Now that's what UB calls the "Luck of the Irish!"

8. Notre Dame Football:

You either love em or hate em. UB loves em...

7. Belushi's Luck of the Irish sketch:

Maybe the funniest thing Belushi did on SNL:

"Let's talk about the bad luck of the Irish, all right? How about this, POTATO FAMINE!! How about that? It scares them, doesn't it? Well it should. That's why they came here in the first place. So they wouldn't have to work in the potato fields. That's why they became politicians, priests, and cops. Luck? Gimme a break..."

(Here is the transcript, UB couldn't find the video on line...)

6. Conan O'Brien:

Can't wait til he takes over for Leno...UB can't stay up that late now that he has to be at Chowdaheads Inc. by 9am. (Here is an example ofwackinesswackyness)

5. Killians Irish Red:

This delicious beverage is a favorite in UB's house...

4. Potatoes:

They are delicious and healthy and can be ammunition for a potato gun...

3. Boston Celtics:

Still the NBA's #1 franchise: 16 World Championships from 1957-1986...

2. Female redheads:

If you're a blonde, dye your hair red for St. Patrick's Day...

1. St. Patrick's Day:

The one day of the year where everyone pretends their Irish and gets drunk...Oh yeah and there was the Ol' St. Patrick's Day Parade in Southie...

Here is Meusy watching the parade with his wife Alison, Alison's friends and Kurt Warner's wife...

Here is UB's favorite float...

The Worst:

10. 2 Spellings for Potato (Potatoe):

Damnit!! Quayle could have been President!!!

9. Lucky Charms:

This cereal promotes tooth decay. UB is not a fan of going to the dentist.

8. Kissing the Blarney Stone:

That lip fungus didn't go away for two whole months...

7. Irish Priests:

You gotta call them Father, but they go after your son and drink your Grand-Dad...

6. Family Guy's Museum of Irish Heritage:

5. Irish Whiskey:

After last night UB hates it. By tonight he'll fall back in love...

4. Rose of Tralee:

Maggie: Biggest whore on 5th Avenue, I'M TOLD!

3. Male red heads:

Like these fire-crotch, Bozo look-a-likes...

2. Leprechaun:

That movie sucked...

1. Corned Beef and Cabbage:

Without a doubt the worst meal associated with a nationality. Corned beef is ok, but come on CABBAGE! WTF...
