One from Ernie:
A mother and her small son were flying Southwest Airlines from Dallas to Houston. The son (who had been looking out the window), turned to his mother and asked,
"If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?"
The mother (who couldn't think of an answer), told her son to ask the stewardess. So the boy asked the stewardess, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?"
The stewardess responded, "Did your mother tell you to ask me that question?" The boy admitted that this was the case.
"Well, then, tell your mother that there are no baby planes at Southwest because Southwest always pulls out on time --now let your mother explain that to you."
This one's from Edel, I'm pretty sure I saw this one before except the main characters are Irish.
An old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his tomato garden, but it was very hard work as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.
 Dear Vincent,
I am feeling pretty badly because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me.
A few days later he received a letter from his son:
Don't dig up that garden. That's where I buried the bodies.
At 4:00 a.m. the next morning F.B.I. agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire garden without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left.
That same day the old man received another letter from his son:
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.
Love you, Vinnie

A male pastor walked into a neighborhood pub to use the restroom. The place was hopping with music and dancing, until people saw the pastor. As the room quieted down he walked up to the bartender and asked,
"May I please use the restroom?"
The bartender replied,
"I really don't think you should."
The pastor asked,
"Why not? I really need to use a restroom!"
"Well, I don't think you should. There is a statue of a naked woman in there and she's only covered by a fig leaf!"
The pastor replied,
"Nonsense, I'll look the other way!"
So, the bartender showed the clergyman the door at the top of the stairs and he proceeded to the restroom. After a few minutes, he came back out and the whole place was hopping with music and dancing again! He went to the bartender and said,
"Sir, I don't understand. When I came in here, the place was hopping with music and dancing. Then the room became absolutely quiet. I went to the restroom, and now the place is hopping again."
"Well, now you're one of us!"
said the bartender.
"Would you like a drink too?"
"But, I still don't understand,"
said the puzzled pastor.
laughed the bartender,
"every time the fig leaf is lifted on the statue, the lights go out in the whole place. Now, how about a drink?"
How to treat a woman:
Wine her. Dine her. Call her. Hold her. Surprise her. Compliment her. Smile at her. Listen to her. Laugh with her. Cry with her. Romance her. Encourage her. Believe in her. Pray with her. Pray for her. Cuddle with her. Shop with her. Give her jewelry. Buy her flowers. Hold her hand. Write love letters to her. Go to the ends of the earth and back again for her.
How to Treat a Man::
Show up naked. Bring chicken wings. Don't block the TV.
In a museum in Havana, there are two skulls of Christopher Columbus, "one when he was a boy and one when he was a man."

This guy comes into a bar and orders three separate shots of Irish whiskey. He downs one, engages in casual conversation with the bartender, eventually finishing the other two. This goes on for a few days and the bartender finally says,
"You know, I can put all three shots in one glass for you."
The other gentleman replies,
"No, I prefer it this way. See, I'm very close to my two brothers. They're both in Ireland now and this represents a drink for each of us. This way I can be closer to them and feel like we are all having a drink together."
The bartender agrees and continues to set them up as requested. This goes on for several months, and then one day, the guy orders two shots. Well the bartender begins to worry that maybe something has happened to one of his brothers. He's gotten to know this guy over the month and finally feels it necessary to ask.
"Is everything alright?"
the bartender asked.
"What do you mean?"
replied the gentleman. The bartender said,
"Well, all these months you've ordered three drinks. Now you've only ordered two. Something didn't happen to one of your brothers, did it?"
"No, they're okay. It's just that I quit drinking."
And another great one from Ernie, supposed this was voted best joke in Ireland in 2007:
John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, 'Here's to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wife!'
That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night!
He went home and told his wife, Mary, 'I won the prize for the Best toast of the night.'
She said, 'Aye, did ye now, and what was your toast?'
John said, 'Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife.'
'Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!' Mary said.
The next day, Mary ran into one of John's drinking buddies on the street corner.
The man chuckled leeringly and said, 'John won the prize the other night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary.'
She said, 'Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know, he's only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come.'
More from Edel! There's been major flooding in Dublin recently (Summer 2008) and this e-mail been doing the rounds:
Finglas was hit badly by the floods over the weekend. Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly muttering ' Whaas da bleeeding Story ?' 'aaaaaawright bud' and 'fuuuucksake'.
The flooding decimated the area causing approximately 30 euro worth of damage.
Several priceless collections of mementos from Benidorm and Santa Ponsa were damaged beyond repair.
Three areas of historic burnt cars were destroyed.
Many locals were woken well before their welfare cheque arrived.
RTE News reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered, still trying to come to the terms with the fact that the damage had not been caused by illegal means.
One resident : Alexis Crystal Duffy, a 15 year old mother of 5 said 'It was such a F***in shock, me little wan Chardonnay Mercedes cem runnin inta me bedruem cryin, Me youngisst two Tyler Morgan an Megan Brooklyn slept tru ih all. But I was bleeedin shaken watchin F***in Rikki Laaake in da mornin'
Apparently though, looting, muggings and incidental crime did carry on as usual.
The Irish Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of Strongbow, Dutch Gold, Frozen Pizzas, and John Player Blue to the area to help stricken locals.
Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings, which include Welfare Books and Jewelery including thousands of Sovereign Rings, many large Medallions and Hash Leaf Shaped earrings from Elizabeth Duke at Argos also Fine Bone China from Tommy's Wonderland of Value.

- Fake Burberry or Kappa Baseball Caps
- Hoodies (any type)
- Tommy Hilfiger Tracks Suits (his and hers)
- Nike/Adidas Shell Suits (female)
- White Donnay Sports Socks Rockport Boots (and any other items usually sold in TK Maxx)

Required Foodstuffs include:
- McCains Oven Chips
- Heinz Baked Beans
- Goodfellas Frozen Pizzas
- Strongbow Cider
- Smirnoff Ice
- John Player Blue 15s
And Remember That Your Cash Contribution Also Counts !!!
Just 22c buys a biro for filling in the compensation forms and Bookies slips
Just 5 euro buys chips, crisps and blue fizzy drinks for a family of 9
Only 6 euro will pay for a packet of 20 Major to calm the nerves of those affected.
Thank You Very Much For Your Help.
