The wit of the Irish
O'Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Ballina parish.
He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day
outside. He then noticed there was a donkey lying dead in the
middle of his front lawn.
Not knowing who
else to call, he promptly called the local police
station. The conversation went like
morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?"
"And the best of the day ter yer good self.
This is Father O'Malley at St.. Francis Xavier
Catholic Church. There's a donkey lying dead right in der middle of me front
Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk,
"Well now Father, it was always my impression
that you people took care of the last rites!"
There was dead silence on the line for a long
moment and then Father O'Malley
"Ah, 'to be sure, that is true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."
