Happy St. Patty’s

Yeah, that’s not the way it’s supposed to be spelled. Right? I mean, according to this rather bossy website. But “Patty” appears to be in common use among both the ignorant proletariat and the mainstream media. Does anyone know what the Chicago Manual of Style says?

Honestly, though, this is a holiday where everyone celebrates the Irish by getting everything wrong about the Irish wrong and drinking offensive drinks. So why worry about the spelling? I mean, correcting the spelling would set a horrible trend.
