One thing that's annoyed me over the years is when people act like they know things when really they're clueless and are just following a trend.

This St. Patrick's Day is a prime example.

WITHOUT DIVING INTO A POLITICAL MESS I would like to mention Trump's St. Patrick's Day edition cap, green with his slogan on the front, in celebration of a holiday shared by many Americans of Irish heritage. However, on the back is stamped a four-leaf clover... this was meant as part of the Irish symbolism the cap is meant to give a nod to, however the four-leaf clover is not Irish at all...

Over at Gaijin Entertainment, the people who make That Other Game, they've released a holiday event where you can earn a pair of clover decals to slap onto your vehicles. Although one is a proper historical emblem of an Irish pilot, the other is... again... four-leafed.


But Wargaming stands out... they've actually used their brains or at least have someone Irish on hand to tell them when they have the right shamrock

Anyone who knows anything about Ireland or St. Patrick knows a shamrock when they see it, the plant has been used for centuries as a symbol of the nation and of the religious history that the holiday stems from... even if it is just an excuse to get plastered nowadays

I'm not religious at all, and am only partly Irish. But I'd like to thank Wargaming for getting this tiny detail right and for causing many Irishmen the world over to exclaim "Finally, someone used the right damn clover!"

"Irish Martial Arts"   Where every tavern is a dojo.

I love the Irish, their entire culture is based around bar fights
