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 onMcCleary Street in the old central part of town.’

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 I. Tell me, what year did you graduate’?

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.’
