Hat tips to Peace Chick Mary for leading me to Chasing Daisy, who had a post with the funniest Irish Joke of 2006 (allegedly.) Here it is:

John O’Reilly hoisted his beer and said, “Here’s to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wife!”

That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night.

He went home and told his wife, Mary, “I won the prize for the Best toast of the night”.

She said, “Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?”

John said, “Here’s to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife.”

“Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!” Mary said.

The next day, Mary ran into one of John’s drinking buddies on the street corner. The man chuckled leeringly and said, “John won the prize the other night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary.”

She said, “Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know, he’s only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come.”

For those Irish who take offense, we can change it to any ethnic group or politician. That's be funny. I know you will like Daisy, a grand Welsh lady who lives in England.

If any Irish take offense, they can't possibly be Irish. All the Irishmen I know, whose babies I would happily bear, have wonderful senses of humor.

Very funny, honey. Just goes to show - be careful what lies you tell, 'cause someday they might rise up and bite you! By the way - I tagged you with a MEME. Stop by my place any time to get the particulars.
