An Irish Sketch Group Discovers St. Patrick's Day Is Not Very Irish

Wait, not even potatoes?!

Like most holidays, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into something pretty far from its origins. Cinco De Mayo isn’t about Mexico’s unlikely victory over the French — it’s about Coronas and sombreros! Christmas isn’t about the birth of Christ — it’s about waiting in line to buy s**t!

Similarly, St. Paddy’s Day isn’t about the death date of Ireland’s foremost patron saint so much as it is about getting blackout drunk. 

Watch Irish sketch group Foil Arms and Hog prepare for St. Paddy’s Day and make a few eye-opening discoveries as well.
