blog #065 >> Book of the Week:
500 Best Irish Jokes and Limericks

This week's book: 500 Best Irish Jokes and Limericks, contains some of the worst jokes and limericks I've ever heard. Nothing against Irish jokes, I've heard a lot of good ones, just not in this book. But fortunately, they're not all bad. This book does contain a hand-full of good ones, if you like your jokes with cheese. Here's a sampling:

A ghost in the town of Macroom,
One night found a ghoul in his room.
They argued all night,
As to which had the right,
To frighten the wits out of whom.

The doctor was puzzled.
'I'm very sorry but I can't diagnose your trouble, Mahoney. I think it bust be drink.'
'Don't worry about it, Dr. Kelly, I'll come back when you're sober.'

A landlady mean in Adrdee,
Served little of honey at tea.
A new lodger said,
As he shook a sad head,
'I'm glad, Mam, to see you've one bee.'

A lovely young maid of Kilglass,
Wore intimate garments of brass.
Pat, one night on the porch,
With acetylene torch,
Just melted resistance, alas!

An advertisement appeared in a Wicklow newspaper:
'Young farmer would like to hear from young woman with tractor with a view to matrimony. Please send picture of the tractor.'
