Preparing for St. Patrick's Day, Twitter user Paul Broughall asked the saint known for banishing snakes out of Ireland (though this was later proved to be impossible) to show him where the snakes are.
Saint Patrick obliged and pointed them out:
The post went viral for two reasons. First, Broughall noticed a typo:
Aww! This better not go viral. I just noticed the "a" that wasn't meant to be there 😭😭😭— Paul Broughall (@paulieblogger) March 15, 2018
Too late, Paul.
I just assumed the asker was Italian and rolled with it didn't affect my meme immersion at all— Clayton Evans (@CMarshEvans) March 16, 2018
It's ok. Btw I'm now reading all of your tweets in an Italian accent— Daniel Shaw (@DShaw873) March 16, 2018
Maybe it was an Italian accent? “It’s a meeeee-a St Patrick!”— Meecham Whitson Meriweather (@MrMeriweather) March 16, 2018
With that out of the way, people could focus on the pointing of the snakes:

I was terrified that the punchline was going to be him pointing to his groin— Sugar High (@vimsy70) March 16, 2018
You took the words right out of my mouth, Sugar.
