"My Goodness, Your Guinness"

Just four more short practice days until the year's one Saint Patrick's Day. The clock ticks on.

Click on the image above for a (hopefully) readable version of the ancient postcard's text (once you get the picture, click on the bottom right arrow graphic to expand it further). The closing lines are worth retyping in full:

"Will you have the goodness to return my Guinness," he cried to Hatta.

"I can't have the Goodness if I return the Guinness," said Hatta. "My Goodness, your Guinness," he added politely.

Ah, politeness indeed.
