A Timely Reminder: It's PADDY, not Patty

IT’S PADDY, NOT PATTY. EVER.

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY? GRAND.

PADDY’S DAY? SURE, DEAD-ON.

ST. PAT’S? IF YE MUST.

ST. PATTY? NO, YE GOAT!


Paddy is derived from the Irish, Pádraig: the source of those mysterious, emerald double-Ds.


Patty is the diminutive of Patricia, or a burger, and just not something you call a fella.


There isn’t a sinner in Ireland that would refer to a Patrick as “Patty”. It’s as simple as that.
