With all the seriousness around us in the world we all need more laughter to put us in a more positive mood. We who are of the more mature generation probably take more medicine than we ever thought possible, but we still must make room for one more prescription. Proverbs 17:22 (ASV) says “A cheerful heart is good medicine; but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
So in that vein I’m going to share with you a few vials of medicine I picked up from various sources for your healing to begin.
In my opinion, and that’s the one that really matters in this article, there is nothing funnier than a good Irish joke. The Irish have a humor that just can’t be topped, or sometimes printed by any respectable publications.
The following two tidbits should be acceptable to those who peruse this site, so enjoy.
#1- My friend Patrick was having a few pints in his favorite pub when Father Murphy walked in and asked the first man he met, “Do ye want to go to heaven?” The man said, “Aye, I do, Father.” The priest said, “Then stand ye over there against the wall.”
The good Father asked a second man, “Sean Magilicutty, do ye want to go to heaven?” “Certainly, Father,” the man replied. “Then stand over there against the wall,” the priest said.
Then Father Murphy walked up to my friend Patrick and asked, “Patrick O’Shaughnessy, is it so that ye would want to go to heaven?” To which Patrick replied, “No, I don’t Father.”
The priest said, “Sure, and I don’t believe what ye just said. Ye’re tellin’ me that when ye die it’s not to heaven ye want to go?” Patrick said, “Oh, ye’re talkin’ when I die are ye, I was a-thinkin’ ye were gettin’ a group together to go right now.”
#2- An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut . The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, 'Sir, have you been drinking?' 'Just water,' says the priest. The trooper says, 'Then why do I smell wine?' The priest looks at the bottle and says, 'Good Lord! Sure, and He's done it again!'
