It's the middle of March, so here's a column that mixes a bit o' the green with a wee portion of lavender and pink.
News Update: Bush Administration Finds St. Patrick/Saddam Hussein Connection
According to legend, St. Patrick explained the concept of the Trinity to the Druids by holding up a piece of clover and showing how the three leaves made up a single plant. However, according to a story at the Macalester.edu web site, '[t]he trefoil in Arabia is called shamrakh and was sacred in Iran as an emblem of the Persian triads. Because trefoil is a sacred plant among the Druids and three is a mystical number in the Celtic religion it is probable that St. Patrick must have been aware of the significance of the shamrock.'
St. Patrick Had A Leather Daddy?
Before St. Patrick became a saint, he was kidnapped and sold as a slave.
'Happy St. Patrick's Gay?'
An old joke, but a goodie:
Three Englishmen were in a bar and spotted an Irishman. One of the Englishmen walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, "Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a faggot."
The Irishman calmly says "Oh really, hmm, didn't know that."
Puzzled, the Englishman walked back to his buddies. "I told him St. Patrick was a faggot, and he didn't care." The second Englishman remarked, "You just don't know how to set him off ... watch and learn." So, the second Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a transvestite faggot!"
Again, the Irishman replies "Oh really, hmm, didn't know that."
Shocked beyond belief, the Englishman went back to his buddies. "You're right. He's unshakable!" The third Englishman remarked, "Boys, I'll really tick him off ... just watch." So the third Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, "I hear St. Patrick was an Englishman!"
The Irishman looks at the third Englishman and says "Yeah, that's what your buddies were trying to tell me."
And They Hang Out At Little Jim's
According to one web site, 'Leprechauns are based upon Irish luck fairies and the Celtic version of dwarves, which were small slimy gold hunting tricksters.'
The wee little ones must have given up sex for Lent because in spite of numerous Google searches, I couldn't find any leprechaun porn sites on the Internet. If it did exist, would it be called 'lepreporn?'
They're Horny Because They Never Have Sex
The Mygayweb.com web site has a recipe for a drink called a 'Horny Leprechaun.'

St. Patrick's Trick's A Treat
One of those gay St. Patrick's Day cards features a slender young guy, his arms behind his head, and his black t-shirt pulled up an around the back of his neck, exposing his virtually hairless body. There is a rainbow design around the guy, and at the bottom of the image there are several pots o' gold, but he's more leprecallboy than leprechaun.
