St. Patrick’s Day card featuring Jesse Ventura in a green leprechaun suit reads “After a glass of St. Patrick’s Day cheer”, inside reads “The streets of St. Paul become perfectly clear!” The sentiment of the card refers to Governor Ventura’s remarks on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1999, that the streets of St. Paul must have been laid out by drunken Irishmen, because the street grid made no sense. (There was a fair uproar after he said this.) Manufactured by Minnesota Moon, ca. 1999.
