Happy St. Pat's!

Once, after he showed me Boondock Saints for the first time (for which I will forever be thankful), my brother, a friend of his and I were telling Irish jokes in the basement living room of a house he used to live in on Macon Hwy.

The joke I told:

Q: What do you call two gay Irishmen?

A: Michael Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzmichael.

For whatever reason, Pat and Mikey were not amused.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

patsbrother, after last week's [...] debacle haven't you learned not to post lighthearted threads making fun of something (like most popular sports) or someone (Mikey and Pat in this case)? Next thing you know 20 posts later, Mikey will be saying something about your mom and how the slide tckle is the greatest manuever in all of sports history and Pat will shut down the thread 12 hours later. (I presume that's his mom, too?)

Ok, you talked me into it. Here's another Irish joke:

An Irishman walks into a bar and orders three pints of Guiness. The bartender, knowing the Irishman likes his Guiness cold, offers to keep an eye out and have a fresh glass ready when the Irishman is nearly out. the Irishman tells the bartender, "No, I have this tradition with my brothers back in Ireland. At this moment, each of them are also drinking three pints of Guiness so we can all drink together."

For the next few weeks, the Irishman came in like clockwork and ordered three Guinness. Then one week he came in and only ordered two Guinness.

"Has something happened to one of your brothers?" asked the bartender.

The Irishman answered, "No, I've decided to quit drinking."

Since we're sending them, this one was a recent (recent to me) favorite:

After a Beer Festival in London, several brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer.

Corona's president sits down and says, "SeƱor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender takes a bottle from the bin and gives it to him.

Then Budweiser's president says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender pops one open and gives it to him.

The Beck's president says, "I'd like the best beer in Germany: Beck's!" He gets it.

The guy from Guinness sits down and says, "Give me a little tea." The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, "Why aren't you drinking a Guinness?" and the Guinness president replies, "Well, if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither will I."

I don't know any good Irish jokes that are PG-13.

and the slidetackle is the greatest manuever in all of sports (except perhaps the putter toss)

Here's another good one.

I killed your cat. I thought it would bring closure to our relationship.
