Irish Holidays Involving Snakes

Weird huh? They say St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. As I told my bestie earlier, my mind just goes straight to some robed dude packing a bunch of snakes into a VW mini-bus and after buckling them in (it's the law) gently tapping one on the nose saying "Sorry man, but we ain't gonna miss ya", and then backing away with a wink.

I wonder what music he would've played on the way out of Ireland (Sinead's "This is the Last Day of Our Aquaintance"?), and since it's an island, where did he drive them to? Exactly how many snakes were there? Did they get pissy along the way and bite his ass?

I know this is a drink specific "holiday", but lest we forget the snakes?
