Paddy's Award, a food review and a few jokes.

Paddy O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wonderful 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?"

Paddy thought about it and finally said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife."

"Oh, that is very nice indeed, Paddy!" Mary said.

The next day, Mary ran into one of Paddy's drinking buddies on the street corner.

The man chuckled leeringly and said, "Paddy 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 in 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."

Paddy is now look'n fer a new Pub t'hang out in.

Results of The Traditional Irish Lamb Stew!

A few posts back I posted a recipe (that I hadn't tried yet) from "Taste of Home" magazine for Traditional Irish Lamb Stew.

I made it this date, Sunday, and its very easy to see why it was rated in that publication as a 5 STAR recipe! It was outstanding!

I would however make three small changes for the next time I make (and there will definately be a next time), first, add 2 tsp's of salt instead on one, second, add 3/4 tsp pepper, and third, 1/2 tsp dill.

Other than those minor changes, it was very delicious and enjoyable.

Irish golfer

A golfer playing in Ireland hooked his
drive into the woods. Looking for his ball,
he found a little Leprechaun flat on his back,
a big bump on his head and the golfer's ball
beside him.

Horrified, the golfer got his water bottle from
the cart and poured it over the little guy,
reviving him.

'Arrgh! What happened?' the Leprechaun asked.
'I'm afraid I hit you with my golf ball,' the golfer says.
'Oh, I see. Well, ye got me fair and square.
Ye get three wishes, so whadd ya want?'

'Thank God, you're all right!' the golfer
answers in relief. 'I don't want anything,
I'm just glad you're OK, and I apologize.'

And the golfer walks off.

'What a nice guy,' the Leprechaun says to himself.
I have to do something for him. I'll give him
the three things I would want... a great golf game,
all the money he ever needs, and a fantastic sex life.'

A year goes by and the golfer is back.
On the same hole, he again hits a bad drive into
the woods and the Leprechaun is there waiting for him.
'Twas me that made ye hit the ball here,
' the little guy says. 'I just want to ask ye,
how's yer golf game?'

'My game is fantastic!' the golfer answers.
I'm an internationally famous golfer now.'
He adds, 'By the way, it's good to see you're
all right'

'Oh, I'm fine now, thank ye. I did that fer yer
golf game, you know. And tell me, how's yer money

'Why, it's just wonderful!' the golfer states.
'When I need cash, I just reach in my pocket
and pull out $100 bills I didn't even know were there!'

'I did that fer ye also.'
And tell me, how's yer sex life?'

The golfer blushes, turns his head away in embarrassment,
and says shyly, 'It's OK.'

C'mon, c'mon now,' urged the Leprechaun,
'I'm wanting to know if I did a good job.
How many times aweek?'

Blushing even more, the golfer looks around then whispers,
'Once, sometimes twice a week.'

'What??' responds the Leprechaun in shock.
'That's all? Only once or twice a week?'

'Well,' says the golfer, 'I figure that's not bad for a
Catholic priest in a small parish.

The skunk has replaced the Eagle as the new symbol of the American Presidency.

It is half black, half white, and everything he does STINKS!

A couple were celebrating 50 years together. Their three kids, all very successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their honor.

It was their 50th Anniversary

"Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad," gushed son number one, "Sorry I'm running late. I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient, you know how it is, and I didn't have time to get you a gift."

"Not to worry," said the father. "The important thing is that we're all together today."

Son number two arrived and announced, "You and Mom look great, Dad. I just flew in from Los Angeles between depositions and didn't have time to shop for you."

"It's nothing," said the father. "We're glad you were able to come."

Just then the daughter arrived. "Hello and happy anniversary! I'm sorry, but my boss is sending me out of town and I was really busy packing so I didn't have time to get you anything."

After they had finished dessert, the father said, "There's something your mother and I have wanted to tell you for a long time. You see, we were very poor. Despite this, we each worked two jobs and were able to send each of you to college. Throughout the years your mother and I knew that we loved each other very much, but we just never found the time to get married."

The three children gasped and all said, "You mean we're bastards?"

"Yep," said the father. " And cheap ones too ."

Every day, a male co-worker walks up very close to a lady

At the coffee machine, inhales a big breath of air, and tells

Her that her hair smells nice.

After a week of this, she can't stand it anymore, takes her

Complaint to a Supervisor in the personnel department and asks

To file a sexual harassment grievance against him.

The Human Resources supervisor is puzzled, and asks:

"What's threatening about a co-worker telling you your hair smells nice?"



The woman replies, "It's Frank. The midget."


"Dapper Dan" said; "Gotta watch those little guys. They do have certain advantages!

"Dapper Dan" said;  "I was laughing so hard at the midget joke I forgot to comment on the others. I liked 'em all, especially Paddy's toast. Glad the Irish stew turned out good. Joyce and I wanna try that when she's felling better. "
