    I always grab potatoes whenever I can, you never know when there could be another blight.

    I wish people wouldn't make potato jokes when referring to Ireland. The "famine" was man-made and a mass genocide. Do you seriously think that the only crop Irish farmers grew were potatoes? History gets glossed by the victors. Every time I see a joke made about this, I get annoyed. I don't blame you though, you learn the cute history, not reality.

    My great-great grand parents left Ireland because of that, my great-great grandmother died and my great-great grandfather married into a native tribe here in the US back when Irish were called the "white nigger." St. Patrick's day in the US is more about the celebration of Irish integration than its traditional heritage, just like many other ethnic holidays celebrated in the US.

    Please spare us the crocodile tears and "plastic paddy" patronizing. I could get into it with you and explain how comedy, and joking are coping mechanisms people have for understanding the problems with with the world but based on your commentary you don't actually care about the subject outside of gatekeeping.

    Hello, I said NOTHING about you celebrating Paddy's Day. I kindly asked op not to make potato jokes, (which are distasteful) and which is a separate thing entirely. On who celebrates what, I couldn't give a flying fuck. Gatekeeping? How? If you think that's gatekeeping, then you have some serious issues. Feels like you're doing that here by saying an arbitrary day I couldn't give a toss about is yours.

    If a native person asked someone not to make specific jokes, would you also tell that person to fuck off and spout "well my great great" BS at them. Since you also have a great-great grandparent on that side too? Oh wait... don't answer that, I'm not interested in any more vitriol.
