An article that came out today by the website Irish Central is taking to task One Life to Live for their St. Patrick’s Day episode.  So much so, that they have awarded it the PADDIES award, an acronym for the worst “Saint Patrick’s awful dreadful, dire, Irish entertainment scene.”

The episode titled, “How are things in Glocca Llanview?” featured Roxy Balsom (Ilene Kristen) drunk (as usual) but adorned with green hat, hands full of green beer and wearing a button, “Irish Whisky Makes Me Frisky”.

The article correspondent goes on to say that what they saw on the air show was, “a despicable display of stereotyping and bigotry.”  What do you think? Wasn’t it all in good fun? Or, do you think it slammed the Irish?
