Luck of the Irish

  ACW '15

Whenever I hear the phrase “luck of the Irish,” I always think of the 1970s blaxploitation film.

Irish People: (experiencing potato famine)

Irish Jones: Man, everybody know Irish Jones don’t jive with no potatoes.

Irish People: (still suffering, but understand)


Irish Gangster: Hand over that genetic propensity for red hair, Irish Jones.

Irish Jones: Whatever daddy-o. Red’s for squares anyways.

Irish Gangster: (is shunned by society)


Ladies: Irish Jones, why you so smooth?

Irish Jones: Foxy mamas, that’s just my little secret. (winks at nearby leprechaun)
