12 Days of Christmas, Irish Style
My dear friend Tracy, who lives in England, sent me this hysterical parody of "The 12 Days of Christmas" by an Irish actor named Frank Kelly, which I though I'd share with all of you. There's no video, just audio. But it's really funny.
Those of you familiar with the 1990s British TV show, "Father Ted", will remember Frank Kelly as Father Jack Hackett, the elderly drunken priest who could hardly speak a coherent word. "Father Ted" was a very funny show about three priests exiled to an island off the coast of Ireland called Craggy Island. Unfortunately, the show lasted only three series as the lead actor, Dermot Morgan, died of a heart attack just as the third season was completed.
Hope you enjoy this YouTube clip, which lasts just over five minutes, whether you are Irish or not!
