Here is another Irish drinking story along with a few more gems from Jay Leno and David Letterman:
An Irishman, an Englishman and a Scot were sitting in a bar.
The ambiance was fantastic, the beer excellent, and the food quite exceptional.
“Ye’ken,” said the Scotsman, “I still prefer the pubs back home. Why, in Glasgow we have a bar named McTavish’s. There, the barman goes out of his way for the locals so much that when you buy 4 drinks, he will buy the 5th for you on the house.”
“Well,” said the Englishman, “at my local pub, The Red Lion, the barman will buy your 3rd drink after you buy the first two.”
“Oh, that’s nuthin,” said the Irishman. “Back home in Dublin we have Driscoll’s Bar. The moment you set foot in the place they’ll buy you one drink, then another, and all the drinks you like, in fact. Then, once you’ve finally had enough drinks, they’ll take you upstairs and see to it that you get laid. All on the house.”
“And,” replied the Englishman, “did this actually happen to you?”
“Well, not me me’self, personally, no,” said the Irishman, “but it did happen to me sister.”
Columnist Liz Smith reported that the Hillary Clinton campaign has asked Paris Hilton to campaign for her. Everyone wanted to know who asked Paris. Of course, it was Bill.
Jenna Bush is getting married, and it is going to be an expensive wedding. George is awarding the $3 billion contract to Halliburton.
You know about the military surge in Iraq. Well, Senator Larry Craig said, I am feeling a surge of my own.
And Letterman again:
Rosie O’Donnell has a new book out. There are three chapters about Bush. Then there is one about the president.
