We wish you a good one, although we don’t really know what “begorrah” means.

* Irish for "Happy St. Paddy's all of y'all"

I would add an O' at the beginning of my name, but then I would have it forever and ever.

BTW - The Chicago River is a different shade of green when the color is added

Isn't begorrah the gaelic word for toque? Failte & slan. And Happy St. Pddays Day!

O'Not My Usual Alias:

I like it. I think this will work well for you, at least for today.

Begorrah - a euphemism for the phrase “by God.” It's the Irish equivalent of an American saying, “by golly” or “by gosh.”

Best wishes and felicitations to all of Irish heritage.

O'NMUA: If they drink a lot of beer, and add blue dye to the river and then use the bridges for urinals the river should turn a lovely shade o'green.

I thought begorah meant "Don't forget to arrange for a person to get you home".

No, "begorrah" means "I'm getting the next round of Guinness," which is why you don't hear me say it.

It's also Purim - the Jewish drinking day!

"Chag Purim Sameach" all y'all!

It means, "Always carry a shillelagh if you think you will encounter wild turkeys." A tip of the Paddy cap to the Blog and Denizens!

Here in Flathead County, we have always assumed Begorrah was the ancient Irish god of green beer. You often hear folks praying to him in bar restrooms.

Begorrah is a Gaelic contraction for the oft repeated phrase repeated the morning after St. Paddy's Day partying...

"But I have gonorrhea."

I think the Begorrah brothers were the ones who invented Irish whiskey.

Q: What do you call a leprechaun sitting out on the deck?
A: Paddy O'Furniture.

Begorrah is Irish for "perimeter"
