So today being St. Patrick's Day I think I will engage in some 'cultural appropriation.' I have been invited to a street party at which corned beef and cabbage will be served, and I shall partake. I'm not big on parties, but a little socializing with one's neighbors is conducive to comity.
The wise do not multiply enemies beyond necessity; neither do they ignore easy opportunities to strengthen social relations. We are social animals whether we like it or not.
An hour of my time, beer and banter, some Irish grub, and then back to the inner citadel.
