Presumably on Saturday the Apostles went on the beer

Lots of posts in blogs this Friday about the oddness of the Irish in closing pubs and stopping beer sales on Good Friday. Nothing about the places being open again on Saturday though. Makes sense, if you think about it with an Irish brain. On Friday JC was killed, which was enough to put anyone off the pint. By Saturday, though, with him lying in the tomb, there was nothing else to do really except have a few scoops and talk about the last few years and the Sermon on the Mount, and "Remember those five loaves and fishes, lads?" Good times. Must have added to the confusion on Sunday morning when the women came in shouting about him not being in the tomb and the mother of all hangovers pounding through eleven brains.
