The day after the most recent St. Patrick’s Day I went to buy some bananas. My local store only had green ones, and it struck me that they must be Irish bananas in honor of St. Patrick.

I turned that observation into a joke, asking friends if they every buy Irish bananas. After they look baffled for a few seconds, I say, “They’re the green ones, but they don’t stay Irish long, they emigrate.”
