Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope you all wear lots of green and drink lots of beer and do all the things that this holiday was never really meant for when it was instituted. I myself will be having a party–since my birthday is just a few days away from this festive holiday–to hang out with friends and drink a bunch and make these amazing cupcakes, only to take a picture and show them off to Anne for approval later. What are you doing?

Whatever you’re doing, in honor of this drunken day, I give you this: A Biologist’s St. Patrick’s Day Song.

    You're sending me one of those cupcakes, right? For approval?
    And send a couple–we might need Victor's opinion, too.

    I just heard a rumor that if you leave a comment here, you get a batch of cupcakes sent to you. Sweet! Looking forward to them!

    Put your face up to the screen, then take a giant shot of Bailey's. It's like you're THERE!
