Funny Irish Joke

Actually, I’ve heard this joke with a number of nationalities, but in honor of St. Patrick’s Day………

Mick O’Flaherity was stopped at a petrol station out in the the countryside when he noticed two laborers slowly working their way towards him on the other side of the road. One was digging a hole, then the other would fill it in after setting a bit of concrete at the bottom. They really didn’t seem to be accomplishing much, so Mick strolled on over to find out what they were doing.

“Say, there,” he called out. “What’s this the two of you are doing? It
doesn’t make any sense.”

O’hara stopped and leaned on his shovel. “Sure and I’ll be tellin’ tha.
Fahy here and me, we’re puttin’ in some new telephone poles. And I’ll have tha know we’re the best crew in the County. I dig the holes, O’Flynn sets the pole, and Fahy fills in the hole.”

“But, there aren’t any poles and there’s just the two of you. This is
nonsense!”

“Ah, well, tha knows O’Flynn’s out wit the bug today.” Fahy now comes up after tamping in the last hole and joins in. “Aye, that he is, that he is. Right sickly. But O’hara here and me, we’re feelin’ fine. Now, tha wouldn’ ha’ us sit around and not do our jobs just because O’Flynn’s under the weather!”

  1. Has any one heard of the Bacon Tree Joke okay it goes like this!
    Way back in cowboy times a westbound wagon train was lost and low on food. No other humans had been seen in days, when the pioneers came upon an old Jewish man sitting beneath the tree.
    ” Is there some place ahead where we can get food.”
    ” Vell yes I tink so ” the old man said. But I vouldnt go up dat hill und down the udder side. Somevun tole me you’d run into a bacon tree.”
    ” A bacon tree?” said the wagon train leader.
    ” Yah a bacon tree. Vould I lie? Trust me. I vouldn’t go dere.”
    The leader goes back and tells his people what the old jewish man had said.
    ” So why did he say not go there? a person asked.” Other pioneer said , Oh you know the Jews – they have a thing about pork.”
    So the wagon train goes up the hill and down the other side. Suddenly, Indians attack them from every where and massacre all except the leader, who manages to escape and get back to the old Jew.
    Near dead the pioneer shouts, ” You fool! you sent us to our deaths! We followed your route, but there was no bacon tree, just hundreds of Indians who killed everyone but me.”
    The Old man holds up his hand and says, “Vait a minute.” He quickly picks up an English-Yiddish dictionary and begins thumbing through it.
    “Oy, I made such a big mishtake! It vuzn’t a bacon tree….
    It vuz a ham bush.”
