Why Irishmen Can’t Be Paramedics —
O’Malley and Finnegan are out in the woods hunting when suddenly Finnegan grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head.
O’Malley whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, ‘I think Finnegan is dead! What should I do?’
The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, ‘Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.’
There is a silence… And then a shot is heard.
O’Malley’s voice comes back on the line,
‘Okay… Now what?
An American General and an English General . . .
An American General and an English General were on a joint battle campaign in World War II. The American General turned to his orderly and said, “Get me my red shirt.”
The English General asked why? The American General said, “That’s so if I get wounded the blood won’t show so much and demoralize the troops.”
The English General turned to his orderly and said, “Get me my brown pants.”
Thank God for the church ladies with typewriters.

Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening. Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent. Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.
As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.
Quickly, she wrote, “Don’t despair. – Sister Barbara,” on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man’s attention and tossed it out the window to him.
The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.
The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.
“What’s this?” she asked.
“That’s the $8,000 you have coming Sister,” he replied. “Don’t Despair paid 80-to-1.”

You may remember the old Jewish Catskill comics of Vaudeville days, Shecky Green, Red Buttons, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, Henny Youngman, and others? You’ve probably heard of them before, but don’t you miss their humor if you were old enough?

IRISH GHOST STORY
This story happened a while ago in Dublin , and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it’s true.
John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm.
The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door … only to realise there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn’t running.
The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched as the hand came through the window, but never touched or harmed him.
Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road, so, gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it… Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he had just had.
A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realised he was crying … and wasn’t drunk.
‘Look Paddy …. there’s that fooking idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!’
