SL Patrick`s Day Pics and some Irish Songs about London by Jas (Blog 245)
Apologies for the lateness of this blog, but here are the pics from the St Patricks Event we held in the London Sims, along with a bit of Leprachaun silliness, and some songs that include the word “London”, by some Irish bands.
Lullaby of London- The Pogues
” According to the book ‘A History of Irish Fairies,’ there is no record in Irish folklore of leprechauns having a female counterpart in their ranks or even a solid record of how they procreate or reproduce. (Try to erase that image from your mind.) The book speculates that leprechauns are the offspring of fairies who were deemed defective children.”
Mayfair`s London Tube started to fill up really quickly as people flocked there!
Earlier We Had Added Irishness to Our Improvisation Group At The Coach.
“A leprechaun and his friend walked into a bar one evening and began ordering pitchers of beer. After a few pitchers, the leprechaun looked around and saw a very large, mean-looking character sitting at the end of the bar. With a smile, the leprechaun ran to the end of the bar and stood in front of this guy. He laughed hysterically, stuck out his tongue and (spat) all over the mean-looking fellow. Looking meaner and madder than ever, he reached out to grab the obnoxious little leprechaun, only to miss him as the leprechaun jumped up and ran back to his seat next to his friend.
“If you know what’s good for you, don’t come near me again or I’ll rip off your little tallywagger!” yelled the mean-looking man.
The leprechaun snickered and started on another pitcher of beer, while his friend told him he thought it would be better not to harass this guy again. A few pitchers of beer later, the leprechaun was beginning to feel pretty intoxicated and fun-loving. Once again, he looked down at the end of the bar and saw the same mean-looking man sitting there. The leprechaun chuckled, ran to the end of the bar to stand in front of the same man, began laughing hysterically, stuck out his tongue and (spat) all over him again. The angry man reached out to grab the drunk little leprechaun and was successful in capturing him.
“All right, I’ve got you this time. I warned you before that if you came near me again I would rip off your little tallywagger and that is what I intend to do!”
The leprechaun laughed again and said, “You can’t do that!”
“Why not?” asked his captor.
“Because,” giggled the leprechaun, “Leprechauns don’t have tallywaggers!”
“Whadda ya mean you don’t have a tallywagger?” growled the angry man, “How in the hell do ya pee?”
“Just like this!” laughed the leprechaun as he stuck out his tongue and (spat)with all his might.”
Manager Of London Tube, Brandon, would not have approved at all!
The DJ for the event was Yam, who wore a great tee and boxing gloves- as did her host Rokotte.
The tunes were mostly Irish- as you would expect- and had us all dancing jigs!
Possibly after too many Leprachaun cakes, people started to remove some of their clothes !
The comedy signs around the club made us all laugh!

Bizarrely, the only guest not wearing green was a frog who dropped in near the end, and if that isn
t irony I dont know what is!
But he should beware, because according to folklore if you don`t wear green on St Patricks you should be pinched.
It`s not just about special occasions ,though, we like to party every night of the week.
Second Life`s London Sims are the place for fun and friendly chat and mega-parties!
