Irish Are Outraged With St Patricks Day Merchandising

On the show this morning, we reminded you that St. Patrick’s Day is on Saturday but,  not everyone is happy about it…..

Urban Outfitters

 I also tols you abput the Irish organizations demanding that shops like Urban Outfitters stop selling T-shirts and accessories with slogans that say, “Kiss me, I’m drunk, Irish, or whatever,” “Irish I Were Drunk,” and a trucker’s hat that shows a figure on all fours vomiting and says, “Irish Yoga.”

I had no idea this position even exsisted but apparently, Congressman Tim Crowley, head of the Congressional Ad Hoc Committee on Irish Affairs, has even sent a letter to Urban Outfitters CEO Richard Hayne, asking him to stop selling the products.

Seamus Boyle, a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America (the nation’s largest Irish organization), wrote in another letter that he’s ready to organize a boycott if the products aren’t removed immediately.

I’m of Irish decent and I HAVE to order this one…..
