Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Responsibly

We can always talk about moderation, but personally I’ve given up on the possibility that people will listen.  If they’re inclined to overdo something, they’ll probably act on the impulse toward excess.  Good judgment rarely beats instant gratification.

That said, here’s a warning from the teddy bear peace officer community in the United Kingdom.  It’s a screenshot of a Twitter retweet, with my own plea for common sense added.  If you’d like to see the original tweet in its entirety, check out @Emergency_Teds on Twitter.

Plush animals are among society’s most responsible citizens, so it disappoints me to see how hard @Emergency_Teds must work to keep the peace in this fine community.  Still, anyone who has lived with plush animals knows the challenge of overdue library books, littered pizza boxes and dirty dishes, along with missing caps from toothpaste tubes.  As much as we love them, we know this segment of society is not perfect.
