It’s A Great Day For The Manx In Chicago

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, and Douglas and Benny reminded everyone that the Isle of Man is in the Irish Sea at the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

As Presidential cat-idates, Douglas and Benny walked in the VIP section at the beginning of the parade, with Mayor Daley, Governor Blagojevich, and all sorts of other Chicago and Illinois politicians. Both wore their “Sons and Daughters of St. Patrick” banners.

Later, Douglas rode on the Lucky Charms float, stopping to bat small boxes of the magically delicious marshmallow cereal with his paws to spectators. For once, Douglas was not the only individual throwing up along the parade route. Benny was the star of the National Manx Society’s trolley float that promoted the upcoming Celtic Fest as well as the Manx Party.

Douglas and Benny wish all their supporters a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
