Just because they say everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day doesn’t mean you should attempt talking like it. If you’re going out drinking tonight, write yourself a note – perhaps on your hand where you won’t forget it – reminding yourself not to try speaking with an Irish accent. It won’t work and you’ll look foolish. Even actors can’t get away with it.
Then again, if you’re at a bar and you meet someone attractive who’s trying to speak in an Irish accent, start quoting Mel Gibson from “Braveheart.” He was speaking in a Scotiish accent, but the good-looking drunk person probably won’t know that. Say things like “I’m goin’ to kill some ANGlish,” and “I luff you – always haaaff.”
