Dr. Pia de Solenni, new feminist rock star, Catholic theologian and my amazing real life girlfriend sent me a good G-rated Irish joke:
Two men were sitting next to each other at a bar. After awhile, one guy looks at the other and says, ‘I can’t help but think, from listening to you, that you’re from Ireland.’
The other guy responds proudly, ‘Yes, that I am!’
The first guy says, ‘So am I! And where about from might you be?’
The other guy answers, ‘I’m from Dublin, I am.’
The first guy responds, ‘So am I!’
‘Sure and begorra. And what street did you live on in Dublin?’
The other guy says, ‘A lovely little area it was. I lived on
The first guy says, ‘Faith and it’s a small world. So did I! So did I!
And to what school would you have been going’?
The other guy answers, ‘Well now, I went to St. Mary’s, of course.’
The first guy gets really excited and says, ‘
And so did
The other guy answers, ‘Well, now, let’s see. I graduated in 1964.’
The first guy exclaims, ‘The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same bar tonight. Can you believe it? I graduated from St. Mary’s in 1964 my own self!’
About this time, Vicky walks into the bar, sits down and orders a beer. Brian, the bartender, walks over to Vicky, shaking his head and mutters, ‘It’s going to be a long night tonight.’
Vicky asks, ‘Why do you say that, Brian’?
‘The Murphy twins are drunk again.’
