Happy Saint Patty’s Day
My goodness my Guinness
Yes yes it’s that wonderful day ‘o green today. I’m part Irish (or so I remember being told at one point in my life) so on with the Irish jokes and links to today’s day ‘o green fun!
Six retired Irishmen were playing poker in O’Leary’s apartment when Paddy Murphy loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table . Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up. Michael O’Conner looks around and asks, “Oh, me boys, someone got’s to tell Paddy’s wife. Who will it be?” They draw straws. Paul Gallagher picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet be gentle, don’t make a bad situation any worse. “Discreet??? I’m the most discreet Irishman you’ll ever meet. Discretion is me middle name. Leave it to me.”
Gallagher goes over to Murphy’s house and knocks on the door. Mrs. Murphy answers and asks what he wants. Gallagher declares:
“Your husband just lost $500 and is afraid to come home.”
“Tell him to drop dead!”, says Murphy’s wife.
“I’ll go tell him.” says Gallagher
Cheers to my friend from Michigan spending this day in Ireland across the street from the Guinness factory.
