    Curious, the first man then asks: “Where in Ireland are you from?” “Dublin,” comes the reply. “I can’t believe it,” says the first man. “I’m from Dublin too! Let’s have another drink to Dublin.” “Of course,” replies the second man.

    Curiosity again strikes, and the first man asks: “What school did you go to?” “Saint Mary’s,” replies the second man. “I graduated in ’65.” “This is unbelievable!” the first man says. “I went to Saint Mary’s and graduated in ’65, too!”

  63. From my weekly dose of Irish email newsletter: There were two nuns. One of them was known as Sister Mathematical (SM),
    and the other was known as Sister Logical (SL). It is getting dark, and they are still far away from the convent.
    SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us for the past thirty-eight and a half minutes? I wonder what he wants.
    SL: It’s logical. He wants to have his way with us.
    SM: Oh, no! At this rate, he will reach us in 15 minutes at the most! What can we do?
    SL: The only logical thing to do is to walk faster.
    SM: It’s not working.
    SL: Of course, it’s not working. The man did the only logical thing. He started to walk faster, too.
    SM: So, what shall we do? At this rate, he will reach us in one minute.
    SL: The only logical thing we can do is split up. You go that way, and I’ll go this way. He cannot follow us both.
    So the man decided to follow Sister Logical.
    Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is worried about what has happened to Sister Logical. Then Sister Logical arrives.
    SM: Sister Logical! Thank God you are here! Tell me what happened!
    SL: The only logical thing happened. The man couldn’t follow us both, so he followed me.
    SM: Yes, yes! But what happened then?
    SL: The only logical thing happened. I started to run as fast as I could, and he started to run as fast as he could.
    SM: And?
    SL: The only logical thing happened. He reached me.
    SM: Oh, dear! What did you do?
    SL: The only logical thing to do. I lifted my skirt.
    SM: Oh, Sister! What did the man do?
    SL: The only logical thing to do. He pulled down his trousers.
    SM: Oh, no! What happened then?
    SL: Isn’t it logical, Sister? A nun with her dress up can run faster than a man with his trousers down!
    And for those of you who thought this would be off-colour, say two Hail Marys!

    from America in an hour’s time. It’s his first trip home in forty
    “Will you be able to recognize him?” asked the American.
