“May the wind at your back not be the result of the corned beef and cabbage you had for lunch”

“May the wind always be at your back” is a traditional Irish blessing. “May the wind at your back not be the result of the corned beef and cabbage you had for lunch” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

“May the wind at your back not be the result of the corned beef and cabbage you had for lunch“ was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor on March 16, 1998. The saying is from “THE TOP 15 ST. PATRICK’S DAY TOASTS...This list copyright 1997 by Chris White and Ziff-Davis.“

“May the wind at your back not be the result of the corned beef and cabbage you ate for lunch“—with “ate“ instead of “had“—is an infrequent variation. “Maxine,” the crabby character from Hallmark’s Shoebox Greetings line, has used the saying, but probably did not originate it.
