We’ve never seen someone raise a glass with such a deadly-serious expression on their face. Lighten up, man, this is supposed to be fun!

Queen Elizabeth finally visits Ireland, because really, why not?: It’s the first visit by a reigning British monarch since Ireland first went independent in 1922. There have been two bomb threats already. She’s 85 — might as well get this visit in now. source Follow ShortFormBlog

Recap: SFB editor Ernie Smith pretends people care about his trip to Ireland
A dozen pints of Guinness, a lot of grumbling over walking, a lot more grumbling over the €20/day wi-fi in my hotel room (Hilton is a nickel-and-diming company!), and a 25-hour-long epic travel day that featured two connecting flights, including a nine-hour one from Amsterdam to Detroit, and the opportunity to be felt up by a Dutch security guard … and me and my GF are home. It appears that Seth, Chris and ProducerMatthew did a bang-up job while I was pretending to be Irish. (By the way, you know an Irish rock star who’s treated like a God over there, but nobody in the States thinks about anymore? Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott.) So, what’d we miss?

On Dublin, or why the blog’s overall quality will improve this week
ShortFormBlog’s European Adventure: Hey all, Ernie of SFB here. You might know me as the guy who screws with the design of the site every weekend. Just wanted to give you an update on the next few days … I’m headed to Dublin to pretend to be a busker for a week. I plan to listen to a lot of U2 and sit in my hotel room and watch “Once” multiple times in an attempt to get the true Irish experience. But seriously, the blog will continue over the next week with our intrepid staffers Chris Tognotti and Seth Millstein taking the helm, and everyone’s favorite breaking news dude, ProducerMatthew, playing utility infielder. I’ll be back on Tuesday, but keep in mind that if you bug us, there might be a slight delay in getting back to you. It’s nothing personal. Oh, what am I kidding, it totally is! Either way, I’ll pound a Guinness in your honor, kids. All 5,600 of you! source
