A passenger in a taxicab on the way to the airport gently tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. To the passenger's surprise, the driver let out a horrendous scream and nearly lost control of the cab, nearly striking a pedestrian and stopping just inches from a store's plate glass window.

"Oh my!" said the passenger, "I didn't mean to frighten you. I only wanted to ask a question. I'm sorry."

"No, no." replied the driver, "It was my fault. It was just a bit unexpected. This is my first day driving a taxicab. For the last twenty-five years, I've been driving a hearse."

Oh dear !!
Local story told around here about the annual matchmaking festival in Lisdoonvarna
An elderly bachelor farmer farming one of the rough pieces of land on the Burren used to drive into Lisdoon on his donkey and cart whenever he ran out of provisions - he'd usually buy what he neded, load up the flatback cart and have a few pints, before driving home
One day, forgetting the Matchmaking Festival was on, he hitched up the cart and drove in, a little confused at firt at all the strangers
When he remembered, he stocked up and loaded the cart, had his usual pints and set off home
As he drove through town he saw a young woman standing at the side of the road hoping to be 'taken on, so he stopped, made a deal with her, sat her on the top of the provisions and drove out of town
A mile out of town, as he turned off the main road onto the rough 'green track' up the steep hill leading home the wind began to get up, it clouded over and it began to spatter with rain
The cart was rather heavily loaded and, what with the extra weight of the woman, the donkey began to struggle - after a few hundred yards, it stumbled
"That's one" said the farmer, and drove on
A short distance later the same thing happened and the poor animal stumbled again
"That's two" said the farmer again
Puzzled, the young woman said nothing
A mile further the donkey stumbled for the third time
The farmer reached for an ash-plant on the pleasure board beside him, got down, walked to the front and struck the beast a mighty blow between the eyes, killing it stone dead
In horror, the girl jumps down
"What did you do that for" she screams, the poor beat was overloaded and couldn't help slipping, besides, it's getting dark and bucketing with rain and we're still nowhere near any signs of life......"
"That's one" says the farmer.
(also found in the Appalachians)

A family of tortoises decided to go on a picnic
They packed their hamper and set off - it took a week to reach their chosen picnic ground
Mother tortoise started to unpack the hamper and, nearly finished, she suddenly said, "We've forgotten to pack the tin-opener"
Panic all round because most of the food was tinned
They debated the problem and argued who should go back for the tin-opener
They finally decided to toss a coin Tommy, the youngest lad (aged 40) lost
He argued at first but finally agreed to go, sayig , "Don't start without me"
They patiently waited - one week, two weeks, three weeks.... no sign of Tommy
Finally she said, "I don't know about you, I'm starving, lets have some bread and cheese
She made some sandwiches and they were just about to tuck in when Tommy popped his head up over the top of the rise and said, "I told you not to start without me - I'm not going"

I must have told this before but it's such a depressing day here in 'closed for business' Ireland....
A handsome young boy is the sole survivor of a shipwreck on an idyllic desert island
There is plenty of food and water to survive and the lad grown into early manhood without ever meeting a fellow human being
Desperate to fill in the empty hours, he begins to be aware of his developing manhood and decides to do tricks with it
He sits on the pebble shore and begins to fist push pebbles along with it and later, to flick them into the sea
He develops his 'trick' to throw them further and further into the sea until h manages extremely impressive distances

One day he is sitting on the beach occupying himself, as usual, when a beautiful young woman, slightly his senior, swims ashore, the survivor of another shipwreck
"What are you doing?" she asks - he explains
"I'm sure we can find something far more enjoyable to do with that" she says
She sits beside him, puts an arm around his shoulder and begins to fondle him till he becomes very aroused - a totally new experience for him
Under her instructions, they begin to make love until, at last they both lay gasping on the beach
"What do you think of that?" she asks
"It was wonderful" he replies, "but I suppose you know you've ruined my flicker?

Ya goora larf - 'aven't you ?

A liverpool Catholic Schoolteacher, Peter Moloney, made his name in the sixties by listening to what his kids did, and then write them up

He describes how he was sitting outside the confessional in his church aiting to confess his sins, when he hears the priest roar out in the box: "What kind of a little girl are you?"
Came the reply: "I'm a little boy, father"

Two of his pupils were walking down the road near a local Priory when they see an elderly monk, dressed in black robes, bent double and hobbling along the road with some difficulty
One asks "Ay father, was you in the Ark"
"No of course I wasn't yo stupid boy" he snapped
"The why weren't you drowned" came the reply

For those who remember the advertising slogan for 'Philosan Health Tonic' - popular when I didn't need it

A man is admitted into hospital for the very first time - the first night he is so nervous he is unable to sleep
In the early hours, he spots a young nurse who silently slips into the ward and climbs into bed with an elderly man
a few minutes later, she clims out, and tiptoes down to another bed... and slowly makes her way completely around the room, then quietly slips out again
Next morning, the new man explains what he witnessed to one of the nurses
"Take no notice" she tells him, "That's Phyllis Anne - he fortifies the over forties"

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shone his flashlight around, looking for valuables, when a voice in the dark said, ‘Jesus is watching you.’ He nearly jumped out of his skin, and froze. When he heard nothing more, after a bit, he shook his head and continued. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard a voice say, ‘Jesus is watching you.’ Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. ‘Did you say that?’ he hissed at the parrot. ‘Yep’, the parrot confessed, then squawked, ‘I’m just trying to warn you that he is watching you.’ The burglar relaxed. ‘Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?’?‘I'm Moses.’ replied the bird. ‘Moses?’ the burglar laughed. ‘What kind of stupid person would name a bird Moses?’?The parrot replied………
’The same kind of person that would name his Rottweiler Jesus.’

Wooonderful BDE

A man serving a long sentence fills his time watching and feeding a mouse that has nested in his cell - he becomes intrigued with its behavior so he sets about training it to do tricks
He teaches it to walk on its hind legs, to somersault and eventually, to dance to tunes he whistles
When he is finally released, he manages to slip it into his pocket, intending to make his fortune from it
He heads for the nearest bar hoping to earn a free pint with it - he calls the barman over, places it on the counter and sets it off dancing
The barman stares at it for a minute, reaches for a tray and squashes it flat saying, "this place is crawling with the dirty little fuckers"

A man walks into a bar. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a little man, maybe a foot tall and a little piano. He puts them both on the bar, and the little guy starts playing Mozart as the man orders his drink.

The bartender says "I'm sure it's none of my business, but where did you find a little man who plays piano like that?"

The guy says "There's a genie standing right outside your door and he's granting wishes. I bet he's still there if you hurry."

The bartender runs outside, and moments later a bunch of ducks come in through the front door and start causing a big ruckus. The bartender says "You didn't tell me the genie was hard of hearing. I asked for a million bucks, not a million ducks."

The guy says,"Do you really think I asked for an eleven inch pianist?"

The Dowie Dens of Marrow'
The Grey Coc-au-Van'
'Hang Down Your Head Tandoorie'
Terrapin Hero
The False Kite on the Toad
Allan Tyne of Marrow
The Bonnie Scouse of Airly

Peggy Seeger never found that we'd re-named her beautiful, Hello Friend, I see you're a stranger' "Hello Fiend, I see you're a strangler"

" floats in the Tasman Sea?"
Must have been trying to escape from Australia
Having said that, I have the greatest respect for Australia - I have an Irish cousin who settle and raised her family there - and loves it
I fell madly in love with the Australian girls who took 'The Great Trek' to London in their camper vans and took over some of my favourite pubs for a time
We took my late mate, Tommy Munnelly to the wonderful Elizabethan pup, 'The George' in Southwark when we visited us in London
When Tommy asked for 'two glasses of bitter' - the very attractive Australian woman behind the bar replied, "We don't serve it in buckets luv'
Later I went to buy my round and commented on what a beautiful pub The George was I was told, "It's like working in a ****** museum mate"

A Sussex couple walking along the coast came across the remains of a bird’s nest the seagulls had obviously got at – on closer examination they found rather a strange looking egg which they wiped down and gently carried back to the car
When the got home they noticed it was still warm and appeared to contain a developing chick, so they made a makeshift nest on the kitchen worktop and left it there to see what happened
Over the next few days it showed signs of hatching and, when I finally did, the strangest, ugliest-looking chick broke out
They left it in the nest, took a photograph and sent it off to the Natural History Museum in London – after a short while they got an excited reply saying they had never seen such a bird and would be in touch – they also said that it was so unusual that the staff had named it ‘The Rary Bird’
The bird continued to grow at an alarming rate, so much in fact that they were forced to take it from the worktop, drag out an old dog-basket and rehouse it there
With a week it had outgrown the dog basket so they were forced to put it in the garden shed on a large bundle of old blankets – it was costing a small fortune to keep it in food
Still not hearing from the Natural History Museum the couple decided that, as it was one of a kind, the Museum would probably experiment on it and eventually stuff it – so they decided to drive down to the coast where they found it and try to get it to fly away
They did this, gingerly lifted it off the borrowed trailer truck and placed it at the edge of the cliff…. and waited, and waited, and waited – nothing happened
Finally the man said to his wife, “We’re going to have to give it a push over the cliff”.
