Luck o' the Irish

They're rare, they're weird, they're unexplainable. And yet Matt of X-Entertainment found one: The endangered Shamrock Shake! Man, McDonald's doesn't even bother to stir them up, they're served to you kind of half green, half white, and you've got to practically bring your own blender to mix them properly.

Be sure and watch the Shamrock Shake TV commercials Matt found. Uncle O'Grimacey is one deadly scary green lumpy dude, that's for sure.

Also, this line cracked me up. It's funny because it's true: "The scope of McDonald's advertising campaign has critically shifted away from actually mentioning their food during the commercials. If they do, it's usually just to let everyone know that they SELL SALADS because it gets them off the hook for everything else they sell."

The rock station here in Vancouver had someone chug a shamrock shake from one of the two McDonalds locations around here that serve them. Listening to someone down a shake first thing in the morning, an knowing it was a McDonalds "shake" didn't exactly leave me scrambling for my car keys...

I had never heard of the Shamrock Shake until I moved to Boston...Last year on the night of our first kiss my guy and I shared one, so we had an anniversary shake yesterday!

I had no idea they were so hard to find in some places- they are plentiful in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Winona, MN, the only cities I have ever lived. I have taken them for granted for many years. I'm spoiled!
