That wonderful drunken heathen holiday is upon us once again. Shamrocks, green beer, and broken promises sung by a frat boy while his girlfriend cries in the corner. This is a great time to be alive. And with the widespread use of social media – drunkards on St. Patty’s can update their statii for the entire world to see!

But do you suffer from obscure updates from your friends and family? Not worry – we here at CRAVE have developed a useful little tool in order to figure out what your friends are really trying to say on the day when everyone is a little Irish!
