Thread Name: BS: St Patrick`s Day Cards
Subject: RE: BS: St Patrick`s Day Cards
A friend in Arlington, with Irish ancestry many times removed, pointed this out to me many years ago. The person in question refused to buy the monkey Cards and for years I always received a US type OIRISH Card with the Shamrock and the Collens. I discovered what she had been referring to when I joined the PC brigade and found the wee Ape like fellas with their Crocks of Gold and silly expressions on the US Card Sites. So those who think I am being too sensitive, have a look at the Yiddish Cards and see if any character is portrayed in a similar vein to the Nazi interpretation of a Jew. Ard Mhacha
