Some St. Paddy’s Snow And A Baked Potato Coma

kiss meHappy St. Patrick’s Day, Modern Philosophers!

Once again, I need to lock myself in my study at The House on the Hill and crank out monologue jokes for tomorrow night’s taping of The Nite Show.

I hope I’m done in enough time to get down to Three Toads & A Wicked Lady for Seamus’ Wild Party.  After all, he is counting on me to sit in his Kissing Booth.

I will have to make tonight’s post short and sweet, which is kind of like Seamus, but only when he’s extremely drunk.  Of course, he’s always short, no matter how much he’s had to drink.

Here’s a little look at my St. Patrick’s Day…

baked4My coworkers were lining up today for our Annual Baked Potato Bar!  This little feast for our McTummies has become a St. Paddy’s Day staple.

baked 3I didn’t catch the official name of this dessert, but for the sake of this post, I will dub it Amazingly O’ Delicious.  It was cake mixed with pudding and it was so yummy.

baked 1Yes, somewhere under all that blurry goodness, there is a baked potato.  Mine was topped with chili, cheese, sour cream, butter, salsa, bacon, and broccoli among other things.

baked 2Oh, did you not get a good view of my loaded potato?  Let’s try this angle.

I sent this photo to my friend Angela, who works for my company, but in another building.  Just to torture her a little.

I thought I was going to slip into a baked potato coma after eating that…

baked 10I’m dreaming of a white St. Paddy’s Day…sang no one ever!  It wouldn’t be a Winter holiday in Maine without the snow I suppose.

It was coming down pretty hard when it was time to drive back to The House on the Hill.  Perfect timing, Snow Miser!

baked 9It’s trying to get in through the windshield!  Somebody help us!!!

baked 8Even though it has been snowing all day, it’s been too warm for it too stick.

baked 6Uh oh.  I spoke too soon.  The snow is starting to stick on the walkway.  I bet if I check outside now, there’s a half a foot of the stuff out there.

But I’m not going to do that, Modern Philosophers, because I need to focus on writing jokes for The Nite Show.  You should all join me at the taping tomorrow night!

Baked 5From all of us at The House on the Hill, have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  1. Here in my suburban Atlanta paradise, the menu is O’Taco Tuesday, (guac is green), Coronas, and a fan in the window because it’s over 80 degrees! No, Nay, Neverrrrrr…

  2. Happy St. Paddy’s Day, Austin…and good luck with your writing for the show tomorrow night 😀

    Just looking at all that snow is making me want to pull five jumpers on! Brrrrr!

    While it’s snow good up north, down in North Florida the insects are already harvesting. The pollen is so thick you can’t see through the windshield. Yes, it’s a veritable pollen storm! You’re in snow hell. We’re in allergy hell. Your noses are freezing, our noses are sneezing. 🙂

    Wow – I’d be in a baked potato coma too after eating that! You go! Happy St. Patrick’s day!

    I do adore a baked potato! Not sure about that green cake though! Happy P-day to you as well.

    I think I spied some corn amid the baked potato load, Austin. Veeeeery interesting combo. Where was the kitchen sink hiding?

    Good luck joke writing. Don’t go booth-kissing now, you hear?

    I was going to ask you what your baked potato toppings of choice were, but you answered that in a picture 🙂 I like sour cream, butter, and salt and I never eat the skin.

  11. Keep them laughing Austin!

  12. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
    NOT AN IRISH COOKIE BUZZ???? 🙂

  13. Nice to see your neighborhood, not just a cartoon representation. I’ve recently been discharged from having home visits from skilled nursing, so soon I can join you, brother, in the joys of winter driving. You got to stuff your own potato, I suppose? 😀
