Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I like Guinness and I especially loved the defunct British television show “One man and his dog,” in which sheepdogs and their masters competed in herding contests. This new commercial from Guinness celebrates them both.  Round up your mates for a stout!

Of course I post dogs only reluctantly, so here’s a St. Paddy’s Day felid for ailurophiles:

  1. Doesn’t say much for Guinness if they need to be herded into having one – that’d never happen i n’Éirinn!

  3. Guinness’ most important contribution to humanity is not its beer, but allowing William Gosset to publish his t-test under the pseudonym “Student”.

    1. Seeing as no one ever mentions St David’s day it’s only fair that Wales are doing lovely in the rugby, look you. Or did you mean the other slaughter? 🙂

        Fantastic achievement by Wales but (& I am going to get flamed here!) I think that England were the team of the tournament. Considering the absolute mess they were in before the 6 Nations coming second is a helluva result.
