The customs of an Irishman

The customs of an Irishman

An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out

of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender asks him, "You

know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought one at a time." The Irishman replies, "Well, you

see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I'm here in Dublin. When we all left home, we

promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together." The bartender admits that this is a nice

custom, and leaves it there.

The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: ordering three pints and drinking them in turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for

the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your

great loss." The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then a light dawns in his eye and he laughs. "Oh, no," he says,

"Everyone's fine. I've just quit drinking."

What causes arthritis?

A man who smelled like a distillery flopped on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was

plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper

and began reading. After a few minutes, the disheveled guy turned to the priest and asked, "Say, father, what causes


"Mister, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man."

"Well I'll be." the drunk muttered, returning to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so

strong. How long did you have arthritis?"

"I don't have it father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."

A Bet at the Bar

A man walks into a bar, and as he makes his way to the counter, he stops and talks to everyone in the bar. As he finishes with each group of people, they all get up and leave and go stand outside the window, looking in. Finally, the bar is empty except for this guy and the bartender. The man walks up to the counter, and says to the bartender, "I bet you $1,000 that I can spray beer from my mouth into a shot glass from thirty feet away, and not get any outside the glass."

The bartender thinks that this guy is a nutcase, but he wants his $1,000, so he agrees. The bartender gets out a shot glass, paces off thirty feet, and the contest begins. The man sprays beer all over the bar. He doesn't even touch the shot glass. When he finishes, the bartender looks at him and says, "Well, I guess you owe me $1,000, huh?"

The man answers, "Yeah, but I bet all of those people outside the window $500 a piece that I could come in here and spray beer all over the bar."

Fast Drinker

A man goes into a bar and seats himself on a stool. The bartender looks at him and says, "What'll it be buddy?"

The man says, "Set me up with seven whiskey shots and make them doubles." The bartender does this and watches the man slug

one down, then the next, then the next, and so on until all seven are gone almost as quickly as they were served. Staring in

disbelief, the bartender asks why he's doing all this drinking.

"You'd drink them this fast too if you had what I have."

The bartender hastily asks, "What do you have pal?"

The man quickly replies, "I have a dollar."
