Happy St. Patrick's Day Ya Snivering Snakes

I think the most interesting thing about St. Patrick is that he was actually a slave, born in Scotland, who was shipped of to Ireland. His tale takes a turn for the better as he escapes servitude and joins the clergy, to later become the most influential figure in turning Ireland towards Christianity, and away from the pagan traditions it adhered to at the time.

Then there's the whole driving the snakes out of Ireland bit, which the cartoon above portrays quite well methinks.
