In a recent radio interview, some of the Irish newcomers weren't happy with the portrayal of Irish in typical Canadian St. Patrick's Day celebrations: wearing green and getting disgustingly drunk is not reflective of true Irish culture. One interviewee compared it to celebrating Black History Month by going around in blackface makeup.
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day in a more authentic way and with an eye to the gayness of this blog, here are some pictures of some actual Irish farmers from a charity calendar. Aside from being hunky and handsome men, these guys look like they'd be a lot of fun in bed as well as out of it. I just love the look of a man with natural muscles and body hair.
