Um, not sure what you expected from a mushroom museum - it sound like a must miss for me just from the tile. And it seems like the cost is less than that for a trashy movie you'll forget 10 minutes after laving it - so not rally a big expenditure.

Paddy isn't short for Padraig?

Every Masters, US Open and British Open announcer must be anti-Irish and venting their animosity whenever a certain P. Harrington (2-time British Open champ) swings the clubs.

St. Cirq, instead of taking offense where you should not ("what's it to you?"), you could read what I post for the real points:

Go to a night vegetable museum, hang out with the fungi, search for the museum of roots and shoots, view the magnificent egress. Who cares? But to complain that you've been ripped off afterwards is rather preposterous.

Why is a quote from PT Barnum rattling around my cranium right about now?>>

BR, NOWHERE in your original post did you mention ANYTHING about the complaining about being ripped off part. That came later.

And I'm certainly not offended - I'll go wherever I feel like going, obviously. I suspect the OP is, though.

Of course not: both have the same number of syllables. "Paddy" is a familiar form for "Patrick", and should be used only when the person is already known by that form. "Padraig" is the Gaelic cognate. People with the given name "Padraig" are not usually also known as "Paddy".

My name is not Paddy -- not my username here, not my real name, not a name by which I am addressed, not a name to which I respond. Is that clear enough?

People in Ireland do not speak of "Paddy Harrington" nor, that I have ever heard, do people in Britain (although they frequently mispronounce "Padraig", but that's another matter entirely).

I think I'd rather go to the 'shroom 'seum than go to Wall Drug in South Dakota.
