What to say on St. Patrick's Day

Do you know what to say when someone greets you with,
"Top o' the mornin' to you!" ?

The proper reply is, "And the rest of the day to you."


"Stop pretending to be Irish, you wack fraud wanker. I'll slap you green."


  1. Overheard on a police scanner (back channel) at 7:59 a.m. Monday:
    Unit X: "Central?"
    Dispatch: "This is central. Go ahead unit (X)"
    Unit X: "Top o' the morning to ya. I'll be 10-8 all day."
    Dispatch: "Um, yeah. Clear."


  2. Yeah, I'd like to see you say No. 2 to David Kehoe. :)

  3. Of course, come to think of it, isn't he Irish?

  4. Yup, TimAitch, I think Mr. Kehoe IS Irish, and at any rate, he says "Top o' the mornin' to you" every day of the year, not just on St. Patrick's Day. It's charming.

    Thanks for the blog wave!
