Top o’ the mornin’ to ye, friends, and welcome to the St. Patrick’s Day BUZZ, where every weekly column is a party to your Irish eyes (even if you’re not Irish). Come to think of it, who is NOT Irish on St. Paddy’s Day?? Since everyone’s got their green on, let’s kick off the BUZZ with a bit o’ Irish humor (with special thanks to Steve Bellardino): One day, God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to Earth to check it out. So, he called Flaherty, one of His angels, and sent the angel to Earth for a time. When he returned, Flaherty told God, "Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are not." God thought for a moment and said, "Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion." So God called another angel, Murphy, and sent him to Earth for a time too. When Murphy returned, he went to God and said, "Yes, it's true. The Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are being good." God was not pleased. So, He decided to e-mail the 5% that were good, because He wanted to encourage them, praise them, and give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what that e-mail said? No? Oh, so you didn't get one either?...Here’s the BUZZ, and that’s no Blarney: A very lovely lass named Evelyn Duffy emailed with a bit o’ info for the pet lovers amongst us: MassPAWS is holding it’s 8th Annual “Paws for A Song” Benefit at the Orient Heights Yacht Club, 61 Bayswater St., East Boston (617) 567-9439.

"I've got good news and bad news," the owner, Michael O’Sullivan, replied. "The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all fifteen of your paintings." "Well sure n’ begorrah! That's wonderful!" the artist exclaimed, "What's the bad news?" With concern in his voice, the gallery owner replied, "The guy was your doctor."...Get ready for Revere’s Second Annual CityWide Fitness Challenge, which starts on April 26!

Heeere’s the CHUCKLE: An Irish bloke goes to the doctor and says "Doctor, it's me ahrse that’s bothering me. I'd like ya to take a look, if ya would be so kind.” So the doctor gets him to drop his pants and takes a look. "Incredible," he says, "there is a $20 bill lodged up here.” Tentatively he eases the twenty out of the man's bottom, only to see another $20 bill appear. "This is amazing" exclaims the doctor "What do you want me to do?” “Well for goodness sake, take it out man!" shrieks the patient. The doctor pulls out the bill and another twenty appears, and another and another and so on...Finally the last $20 bill comes out and no more appear. "Ahhh....doctor, that’s so much better! How much was in there? The doctor counts the pile of cash. "$1980 exactly.""Ah, that’d be correct." says Paddy. "I knew I wasn't feeling two grand."....Got comments? News? Announcements? Chuckles?
