Image Mick, from Dublin , appeared on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' and
towards the end of the program had already won 500,000 euros.
"You've done very well so far," said Chris Tarrant, the show's presenter,
"but for a million euros you've only got one life-line left, phone a friend.
Everything is riding on this question. Will you go for it?"

"Sure," said Mick. "I'll have a go!"

"Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?

a) Sparrow
b) Thrush
c) Magpie
d) Cuckoo?"

"I haven't got a clue," said Mick, ''so I'll use my last lifeline and
phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin."

Mick called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated the
question to him.

"Hell, Mick!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple. It's a Cuckoo."
"Are you sure?"

"Of course I'm sure."
Mick hung up the phone and told Chris, "I'll go
with Cuckoo as my answer."

"Is that your final answer?" asked Chris.

"Dat it is."

There was a long, long pause and then the presenter screamed, "Cuckoo is
the correct answer! Mick, you've won 1 million euros!" The next night, Mick
invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink.

"Tell me, Paddy? How in Heaven's name did you know it was da Cuckoo that
doesn't build its own nest?"

"Because everyone knows the Cuckoo lives in a clock!"


Image O'Connor was sitting in Ward's Irish bar, Piccadilly, London with a large
Rottweiler at his feet.
'Does your dog bite?' asks Murphy.
'No,' replies O'Connor.
So Murphy pats the dog who almost rips his arm off completely.
'Hey!'screams Murphy, 'you said your dog didn't bite.'
O'Connor replies, 'That's not my dog.'



Happy Wednesday! :goodvibes:
Through the years, for the many xoxo's, giggles & kindness...
thank you & love you Johnny.

INSPIRATION ~ Wednesday, March 15

Two Irish drunks are walking home after a little too much celebration on St Patrick’s Day.
As they stumbled up the country road in the dark, Paddy says, “Bejeesus, Mick, we’ve stumbled into the graveyard and here’s the stone of a man lived to the age of 103!”
Mick replies, “Glory be, Paddy and was it anybody we knew?”
Paddy says, “No, it was someone called ‘Miles from Dublin’.”

An Irish priest is driving down to New York for the St. Patrick’s Day parade and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut.
The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car, so he asks the priest, “Sir, have you been drinking?”
“Just water,” says the priest.
“Then why do I smell wine?”
The priest looks at the bottle, picks it up, sniffs it and says, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”
