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…..
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…..
Can you say….SENSE OF HUMOR???????
