Irish diplomacy is the ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip.
You don't need to hear Cousin Jonathan lamenting for his hometown to know that Chicago represents big time for St. Patrick's Day. Not sure if they're still turning the river green, or if that's been determined to be causing penguins in Antarctica to drop dead from emotional stress, but I tell you this, one of the very best Irish products to come up from the Southside is blonde hottie Jenny McCarthy. For all we, at times, rip on the bemusing muse of wayward mother hens these days, there was a time when Jenny McCarthy and wankability were terms found often in the same sentence. And, that time was specifically her association with Playboy, the height of her Irish sextastic. Oh, how I read those articles back and forth, front to back, side to side, and all ways til Sunday. Enjoy.
