Irish story

Mrs. Donovan was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father Rafferty The Father said, "Top o' the mornin' to ye! Aren't ye Mrs. Donovan and didn't I marry ye and yer husband two years ago?"

She replied, "Aye, that ye did, Father."

The Father asked, "And be there any wee ones yet?"

She replied, "No, not yet, Father."

The Father said, "Well now, I'm going to Rome next week and I'll light a candle for ye and yer husband."

She replied, "Oh, thank ye, Father." They parted ways.

Some years later, they met again. The Father asked, "Well now, Mrs. Donovan, how are ye these days?"

She replied, "Oh, very well Father."

The Father asked, "And tell me, have ye any wee ones yet?"

She replied, "Oh, yes Father. Three sets of twins and four singles, 10 in all."

The Father said, "Glory be! That's wonderful! How is yer loving husband doing?"

She replied, "E's gone to Rome to blow out yer candle."
**************************************************


Father O'Malley rose from his bed. It was a fine spring day in his new Washington, DC parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside.

He then noticed there was a jack*ss lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the US Senate for assistance.

The conversation went like this: "Good morning. This is Senator Daschle. How might I help you?"

"And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Brigid's. There's a jack*ss lying dead in me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple o' yer lads to take care of the matter?"

Senator Daschle, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of last rites!"

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment.

Father O'Malley then replied, "Aye, that's certainly true, but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."

TYPICAL RACIAL STEREOTYPING. EXAMPLE YOU COULD LIVE ALL YOUR LIFE IN IRELAND AND NEVER HEAR THE EXPRESSION "TOP O' THE MORNING". THAT IS A HOLLYWOOD PHRASE. PICK ON SOME OTHER ETHNICITY. AND IF YOUR IRISH YOURSELF HOW ABOUT STUPID JOKES.

Me own Great Great Grandmother came from Ireland on a potato boat, of all things. And I happened to think they were pretty funny. It's always best not to take yourself too seriously. ;)

Lighten up already, and yes, I DO happen to be part Irish and I still thought they were funny. That's why they're called a JOKE : )
