Irish I Were Drunk

We enjoyed another St. Patrick's day in Newport this year. Pictured above is yours truly in full St. Patrick's day regalia holding a bottle of Newport Storm. We spent the day at the parade, party hopping, and playing da cau in the street. We then hit some of the finer eating and drinking establishments in town before collapsing around midnight. I was pleased to learn that one of the perhaps several drunken neologisms that our group coined on Saturday is a semi-legitimate word. Insinuendo, meaning to insinuate through innuendo, is obviously redundant, but it has a nice ring to it and it has been part of the English language since at least the 1870s, according to this.

You're the last person I would ever expect to be wearing a large felt Guinness novelty hat. Looks like a quality facebook picture though. When in Rome, I suppose.
