Emerald Half-Nekkid Thursday

The HNT-meister, Osbasso, decreed a St.Patrick's Day themed HNT this week.

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Ireland or the Irish. I spent three (well two if you want to get picky) years at university in Ireland, and whilst there were good times, fun times and ridiculously drunken times, on the whole it wasn't the best time of my life. I do sometimes get the impression that people look at Ireland through rose tinted spectacles - for all it's beauty, it has of course its problems, especially with us English folk, but I for one would rather not dwell on the past or get into religious politics. I also find many of the Irish people I have met to be extremely argumentative folk, almost as if they're looking for conflict and thrive upon it.

I don't want to generalise or piss anyone off, but that's just my view after having spent some time living there.

Fortunately they have great taste in alcoholic beverages - Guinness and Bushmills whisky are two of my personal favourites.

Anyway, back to HNT - this is an Irish film through and through, a little gem which is very funny, quirky, and a little bit wicked! Here in the UK it was actually called "Waking Ned" not "...Ned Devine" but someone in the USA decided just "Ned" was somehow misleading - how I'm not quite sure, but the name got changed, and all I could find were copies of the "...Ned Devine" version of the poster.

As always, if you've not seen this film, I'd urge you to rent it.

Thanks again to Martha for her Photoshopping - she had a dreadful piece of poster artwork to work with to start off, so don't blame her for the poor quality of the image!

Oh, and one other point of note - that's me IN A SUIT - my very own SUIT! See, I do scrub up well sometimes!

Happy St.Patrick's Day for tomorrow and Happy HNT for today!
