  There once was an Irishman named Pat, who was born on 
St. Patrick's Day, died on St. Patrick's Day, marching 
in the St. Patrick's Day parade. Pat went to heaven and 
saw St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. 
  St. Peter said, "Who are you?" and Pat replied, "My 
name is Pat, I'm an Irishman, born on St. Patrick's Day,
died on St. Patrick's Day, marchin' in the St. Patrick's 
Day parade."
  St. Peter checked up in his book and saw all this
information was true.
  So he said to Pat, "Yes, this is all true, so here is 
a little green cloud for you to drive around heaven in 
and here is a harp that, when you push this button here,
will play 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.' You've earned 
it, Pat. Have a good time in heaven."
  Pat jumps on his little green cloud, punches the button, 
and it starts to play "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." He 
heads out into heaven, a smile on his face and a song in 
his heart.
  He's having a wonderful time in heaven, driving his
little green cloud around for two whole days. However, on 
the third day, he's driving down the main expressway in 
heaven with the harp playing full blast when, all of a
sudden, a pink and white two-tone cloud roars past him.
And in the back of this cloud is an organ which is playing
all sorts of celestial music. Pat has just enough time to
see that the person driving the pink and white two-tone
cloud has a long nose and a darkish complexion.
  Pat makes a U-Turn right in the middle of the Heaven
Expressway, charges back to the Pearly Gates, jumps
off of his little green cloud and stalks up to St. Peter.
  He says, "St. Peter, my name is Pat, I'm an Irishman.
I was born on St. Patrick's Day, died on St. Patrick's
Day, marchin' in the St. Patrick's Day parade. I come
up here to heaven and I get this tiny, insignificant 
little green cloud and this little harp that plays only 
one song, 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.'
  "St. Peter, there's a Jew over there. He's got a big,
beautiful pink and white two-tone cloud and an huge
organ that plays all kinds of celestial music and I, Pat
the Irishman, want to know why!"
  St. Peter stands up from his desk. He leans over and
motions Pat the Irishman to come closer.  Then he says,
"Pat, shush! *He's* the Boss's Son!"

  Paddy and Murphy were walking in a field, when Paddy fell 
down an old disused well.
  "Are ye' all right Paddy?" shouted Murphy down the well.

  "Shall I get help, Paddy?"
  "No, Murphy, I can climb up the side by usin' me lips," 
said Paddy.

  Patrick, suffering from a severe toothache, got up enough nerve
to visit his dentist, but lost it again when he was about to get 
into the chair.  The dentist told his Nurse to give Patrick a shot
of whiskey kept on hand for just such circumstances as this.
  "Got your courage back now?" the dentist asked.
  "No!" replied Pat. So a second shot was brought, then a third.
  "Now have you got your courage?" asked the dentist?
  "You're God damn right!" Patrick said, squaring his shoulders.
"I'd like to see the son-of-a-bitch who'd dare to touch me 
teeth now."

  Three Irishmen are being treated by a speech therapist for 
stuttering.  The therapist is a real looker and very curvy.  
She is finding it very difficult to make any progress with 
the three men and so she decides to try a reward system.  
She tells the three that she will have sex with anyone of 
them who can tell her where they were born without stuttering.
  The first Irishman stands up, says, "B-B-B-B-Belf-f-f-f-ast,"
and sits down in disappointment.
  The second Irishman says, "D-D-D-Dublin," and also sits down 
with a sad face.
  The third Irishman says, "London."
  In amazement the therapist immediately grabs him, takes into
the next room, from where there are sounds of frantic lovemaking.
After half an hour they return and the Irishman has a stupid, 
satisfied grin on his face.
  Before restarting the session the therapist asks if there's 
is anything that any of the men would like to say.
  The third Irishman raises his hands and continues,

  Two Irishmen were talking in a Dublin pub. "I wouldn't go 
to America if you paid me", said the first.
  "Why?" said the second.
  "Well for one thing they drive on the right hand side of 
the road."
  "And what's wrong with that?" said the second man.
  "Well I tried it driving to Dublin the other day and it 
was terrible"

  Paddy and Mick were approaching a Londonderry pub which had 
been destroyed by a Protestant bomb only minutes before.  As 
they passed, a head rolled out of the smouldering ruins and 
across the pavement before them.  Paddy stooped, picked it up 
and held it for Mick to see.
  "Shure now Mick, isn't this Sean Murphy?"
  "No, Paddy, no, it couldn't be.  It's an amazin' resemblance, 
but Murphy was taller than that."

as thin as the pair of us put together.

Your Honor, I was sober enough to know I was drunk.

  The group arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone.
  "Good luck will be following you all your days, if you kiss
the Blarney Stone," the guide said. "Unfortunately, it's being
cleaned today and so no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps 
we can come back tomorrow."
  "We can't be here tomorrow," the nasty woman shouted. "We 
have some other boring tour to go on. So I guess we can't kiss
the stupid stone."
  "Well now," the guide said, "it is said that if you kiss 
someone who has kissed the stone, you'll have the same good 
  "And I suppose you've kissed the stone," the woman scoffed.
  "No, ma'am," the irritated guide said, "but I've sat on it."

  A boss was determined not to hire an Irishman, so he decided 
to set a test for Murphy, hoping he wouldn't be able to answer 
the questions, and he'd be able to refuse him the job without 
getting into an argument.
  "The first question is, without using any numbers, represent 
the number 9".
  So Murphy says, "Dat's dead easy" and proceeds to draw three 
  The boss says, "What the hells that?"
  Murphy says "Tree 'n tree n' tree makes nine".
  Fair enough, says the boss. "Second question, same rules as
before, but represent the number 99".
  Murphy stares into space for a while, then makes a smudge on 
each tree. "Der ya go sir" he says.
  The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you 
get that to represent 99?"
  Murphy says "Each tree's dirty now! so it's dirty tree, 
n' dirty tree n' dirty tree, dats 99".
  The boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire him, 
so he says "All right, question three. Same rules again but 
represent the number 100".
  Murphy stares into space again, then he shouts "Got it!" He 
makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and says "There 
ya go sir 100".
  The boss looks at Murphy's attempt and thinks, Ha! got him 
this time. "Go on Murphy, you must be mad if you think that 
represents a hundred".
  Murphy leans forward and points to the marks at the tree 
bases, and says, "A little doggy comes along and craps by each 
tree, so now you've got, dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree 
an' a turd, an' dirty tree an' a turd, which makes one hundred,
when do I start me job?"

  An Irishman walks into a bar and asks for two beers. He then 
pulls a small green-skinned man out of his pocket and puts him 
on the counter. As he's drinking one drink and the green man 
is drinking the other, an Englishman down the bar who has had 
a few too many drinks says, "Hey, what's that little green 
thing down there?"
  The green man runs down the bar gives the Englishman a 
raspberry, "SPLBLBLBLT!," right in the face and runs back to 
the Irishman.
  The Englishman mops himself off and says to the Irishman, 
"Hey, what is that thing, anyway?"
  The Irishman replies, "Have some respect. He's a leprechaun."
  "Oh, all right." the Englishman says sullenly. They all go 
back to drinking beer.
  An hour or so later, the Englishman is really plastered.
  "Boy, that leprechaun sure is an ugly little bastard!" he says.
  The  leprechaun runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a 
raspberry again, "SPLBLBLBLBT!"
  This time the Englishman is really mad!
  "Tell that leprechaun that if he does that again I'll Chop his 
willie right off, I will!" he shouts.
  "You can't do that" says the Irishman. "Leprechauns don't 
have willies." 
  "How do they pee, then?" asks the Englishman.
  "They don't," says the Irishman. "They go SPLBLBLBLBT."

  A secret agent was sent to Ireland to pick up some very 
sensitive information from an agent called Murphy. His 
instructions were to walk around town using a code phrase 
until he met his fellow agent. He found himself on a 
desolate country road and finally ran into a farmer.
  "Hello, said the agent, "I'm looking for a man called 
  "Well you're in luck," said the farmer, "as it happens,
there's a village right over the hill, where there's a 
butcher called Murphy, the baker is named Murphy, three 
widows are called Murphy. In fact my name is Murphy."
  "Aha," thought the agent, "here's my man."
  So he whispered the secret code. "The sun is shining...
the grass is growing...the cows are ready for milking."
  "Oh," said the farmer, "you're looking for Murphy the 
spy - he's in the village over the other direction."

  Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering who to 
invade next when his telephone rang.
  "Hallo! Mr. Hussein," a heavily accented voice said. "This 
is Paddy up in County Cavan, Ireland. I am ringing to inform 
you that we are officially declaring war on you!"
  "Well, Paddy," Saddam replied, "this is indeed important 
news! Tell me, how big is your army?"
  "At this moment in time," said Paddy after a moment's 
calculation, "there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door 
neighbor Gerry, and the entire dominoes team from the pub --
that makes 8!"
  Saddam sighed. "I must tell you Paddy that I have 1 million 
men in my army waiting to move on my command."
  "Begorra!" said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back!"
  Sure enough, the next day Paddy rang back. "Right Mr. Hussein,
the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some equipment!"
  "And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asked.
  "Well, we have 2 combine harvesters, a bulldozer and Murphy's 
tractor from the farm."
  Once more Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 
16 thousand tanks, 14 thousand armored personnel carriers, and 
my army has increased to 1 and a half million since we last spoke."
  "Really?" said Paddy "I'll have to ring you back!"
  Sure enough, Paddy rang again the next day. "Right Mr. Hussein, 
the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! 
We've modified Ted's ultralight with a couple of rifles in the 
cockpit and the bridge team has joined us as well!"
  Saddam was silent for a minute, then sighed. "I must tell you 
Paddy that I have a thousand bombers, 500 MiG 19 attack planes, 
my military complex is surrounded by laser-guided surface-to-air
missile sites, and since we last spoke, my army has increased to
2 million."
  "Faith and begorra!" said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back."
  Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day.
  "Right Mr. Hussein, I am sorry to tell you that we have had 
to call off the war."
  "I'm sorry to hear that," said Saddam. "Why the sudden change 
of heart?"
  "Well," said Paddy "We've all had a chat, and there's no way 
we can feed 2 million prisoners."

  Three Irishmen, Paddy, Sean and Shamus, having left the pub a
wee late one night, found themselves on the road which led past
the old graveyard.
  "Come have a look over here," says Paddy, "it's Michael
O'Grady's grave, God bless his soul.  He lived to the ripe old
age of 87.  Good blood, those O'Grady's!"
  "That's nothing," says Sean.  "Here's one named Patrick
O'Toole, it says here that he was 95 when he died.  Aye, those
O'Tooles are a hardy bunch, they are!"
  Just then, Shamus yells out, "Forget him, here's a fella that
lived to be 145 years old!"
  "What was his name?" ask Paddy & Sean.
  Shamus stumbles around a bit, awkwardly lights a match to 
see what else is written on the stone marker, and exclaims, 
"Miles, to Dublin!"
