More Wall Street Journal Humor - St. Patrick's Day, Leprechaums, But No Irish Jokes Please

This is a repeat from March 17, 2010. I've got deadlines people.

Another Post Courtesy of the Wall Street Journal - I kid Rupert Murdoch a lot when we see each other at the Friar's Club but his rag does supply an endless assortment of crap for my blog.

The Wall Street Journal has a daily cartoon called Pepper and Salt that I really, really don't like. Apparently, rich Wall Street scumbags have their own unique form of humor that is not funny. Here's today's cartoon.

It's St. Patrick's Day! Every morning DJ, every local TV anchor, every a-hole at work is dusting off the Irish jokes and getting a laugh -- except the Wall Street Journal. You have to work really, really hard not to be funny with a setup involving two leprechauns and a gigantic mushroom, on St. Patrick's Day. We can never accuse the Wall Street Journal of not working hard.

Am I the only person that expects Fred and Wilma Leprehaun to walk out of that mushroom house? And do leprechauns live in mushrooms or do they just sit on them?

When you first read these cartoons you think, oh no, they're just like the cartoons in the New Yorker, I'm just too stupid to understand them. But after weeks of analysis, I've come to the conclusion that we're smart enough, they just suck, and they almost never have anything to do with business, or the right wing agenda of the Wall Street Journal.

This is the part of the post where I attempt to write funnier captions. Don't forget, this is a "business" comic for Wall Street Journal readers that is officially housed in the collections of the Harvard Business School Library assuring that future generations of MBA assholes will have no sense of humor. If you are the president of a major university and want to house a collection of my work, e-mail me.

And today's winner so far is:

As always, I will continue to add captions to this post all day until I think of something funny. You are invited to help but you won't because leaving a comment is too much damn effort, bitch. Note: There are a bunch of these cartoon rips so just scroll on down.


  1. Bobby,

    There is nothing like a good Irish joke... and these are nothing like a good Irish joke. (rimshot, please)


    "The thick, spongy walls are perfect for muffling your wife's screams and sobs."

    Because the Irish have gone through some troubling times, and their men are often drunk and quick to beat their wives.

    Way to go the extra three feet by changing the font to green.

    Inna tha nameajaysus ya bollix ya, did ya not put any thought atall ta puttin a wee bit of effort inuiit and writin' in a fullaclever brogue?


  2. Bill,

    Thanks for the comment!

    No, I never thought about putting any extra effort into it.

    Howabout, ya wifescunt looks like ma bulldog chewin on a wasp.

    Do you guys do anything special in Hell for St. Patrick's Day?


  3. Bobby,

    Hmm, probably for the best that you didn't attempt authentic Irish slang.


    "And when the IRA firebombs it, you can serve it on crusty ciabatta with some fresh mozarella and basil leaves."

    Because hippies eat that kind of crap grilled.

    Generally speaking, saints are not a big deal down here.

    St. Patrick's Day in hell...

    vats of non-alcoholic green beer, all the vomit without the charm. The only thing worse than a drunken Irishman on St. Paddy's Day is a sober Irishman on St. Paddy's Day!!!!


  4. Bobby,

    I forgot the mandatory, reactionary aspersion directed at your wife.

    Oh wait, you're a single, halfafag that couldn't bang Bristol Palin with Anne Coulter's dick.

    So, I'm regretably forced to direct one at your dear, old mother.

    Ya mudda's face looks like a monkey's abortion.

    Simple, effective, Irish.


  5. Bill,

    Thanks for the comment!

    Bit of a fog this morning, cuz my heads hangin off me cuz I drank real beer cuz I'm not burnin in hell cuz I'm not dead.


  6. Bill and Bob,

    You two kill me.

    I guess you would have to be a hardcore waller to get the humour.

    I chucked at the first cartoon though.

    Still here and still a born again Virgin.

    Word Verification was: pubdung!

  7. Greetings Bob "Melon" Melonosky and readers!

    I just dropped by in order to let you know that i have had such a great time while reading thins magnificently well done column. Moreover, I think that it is a shame to know that there are too few blogs as wonderful as this is. I respectfully congratulate you for this masterpiece, which has amused me to death.


  8. Excellent story, I like to read jokes about Irish people all the time because they have a particular way to speak and behave, actually I laugh a lot of my friend who0 is an Irish man.
