    An Irish Pub Joke...
    I'm doing research for a series of posters and happened upon this:

    An Irish man shows up in a pub one day and orders three pints of Guinness. He takes sips from each glass until they are empty and calls the bartender for three more. The bartender says, 'Sure it's up to yourself, but wouldn't you rather I was bringing them one at a time? Then they'll be fresh and cold.'

    'Nah...' your man says, ' I'm preferrin' that ye bring 'em three at a time. You see, me and me two brothers would meet at a pub and drink and have good times. Now one is in Australia, the other in Canada and I'm here. We agreed before we split up that we'd drink to each other's honour this way.'

    'Well,' says the bartender, 'that's a grand thing to do, all right. I'll bring the pints as you ask.'

    Well, time goes on and your man's peculiar habit is known and accepted by all the pub regulars. One day though, he comes in and orders only two pints. A hush falls over the pub. Naturally, everyone figures something happened to one of the brothers. A group of the regulars corner the bartender and finally persuade him to find out what happened. With a heavy heart, the bartender brings the two pints and says, 'Here's your pints... and let me offer my sincerest condolences. What happened?'

    The Irish man looks extremely puzzled for a moment, and then starts laughing.

    'Oh, no, no, no! 'Tis nothing like that.

    You see, I've given up drinking for Lent...'

    That is funny.

    I am 1/4 Irish, and 3/4 English. Quite the combination. I guess that is better than full Irish (no offense to the Irish)

    My grandmother is Irish, she will be 90 this year. She is unique!

    I grew up thinking I was 1/2 Irish (Carney) and 1/2 Dutch (Van Lare), then when my daughter was born I did some ancestry digging and found that my Carney side Grandmother was German, Scotch and a few other things thrown in. But my Carney Grandfather was second generation from Ireland. So I'm 1/4 Irish, 1/4 mutt, and 1/2 Dutch. The Irish influence seems to be the strongest though
