The reason I’ve written a lot of Friday Funnies posts about the Irish is because they’re bloody funny. The reason they’re so funny is because they usually depict the Irish as being dumb? The question is, is there anything to this dumb Irish theory? I don’t believe that anybody really believes in the dumb Irish theory. But that doesn’t make these jokes any less funny.
Today I got an Irish joke that probably dispels this dumb Irish theory.
Financial planning by not so dumb Irishman
Paddy bought a camel from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the camel the next day.
In the morning he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The camel died.’
Paddy replied, ‘Well just give me my money back then.’
The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I’ve already spent it.’
Paddy said, ‘OK then, just bring me the dead camel.’
The farmer asked, ‘What are you going to do with him?’
Paddy said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’
The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle a dead camel!’
Paddy said, ‘Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’
A month later, the farmer met up with Paddy and asked, ‘What happened with that dead camel?’
Paddy said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 each and made a profit of $898′
The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’
Paddy said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.’
Paddy now works for the Commonwealth Bank.
And that wraps up another Friday Funnies. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you next week.
