Saint Patrick’s Day

March 17th, 2015

Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t about turning rivers green, it’s a cultural and religious celebration of the foremost patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. Celebrations typically include parades, wearing green and exchanging Shamrocks. Since I can’t do any of those here, I hope you’ll accept an exchange of Irish jokes to make you merry.

Why did the Irishman iron his Shamrock? He wanted to press his luck!

Even though O’Malley was an experienced scuba diver, he finally got an answer to a question that annoyed him for years. Out on a dive he asked his friend Murphy, “Why do scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats?” Murphy replied, “If they fell forwards they’d still be in the boat.”

Little Paddy was listening to a long and excessively boring sermon in church. Suddenly the red sanctuary lamp caught his eye. Tugging his father’s sleeve, he said, “Daddy, when the light turns green can we go?”

A Dublin wife was keeping a close eye on her new neighbors. “They seem perfectly devoted to each other.” She told her husband of many years. “He kisses her every time he goes out and even blows her a kiss from the sidewalk. Why don’t you do that?” “But I hardly know the woman.” Ryan replied

May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
