I try not to buy into or perpetuate stereotypes, but when you hear something like this ...
There is a local Irish pub/restaurant, and the owner is something of a celebrity. He has been very active in the community and has raised money for charity. For the past 14 years, his establishment is without doubt the place to be if you want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style. It starts in the morning with mass (!) and continues throughout the day with music, food and drink. But this year our hero is not in attendance as he's been in the hospital with various ailments, remnants of a mishap eight years ago from which he has never fully recovered. What happened, you ask?
He fell off a bar stool.
I kid you not. True story.
