Joke of the Month
Curated by The Parrot
This story came from an Irish parrot that I know. He’s called Clancy – some of you will remember his Brothers. I once asked Clancy why Irish jokes are so silly. He said that they had to be stupid, otherwise the English wouldn’t understand them. Anyway, here is his story.
A group of professors of European languages were talking one evening at a conference. A Professor of Spanish asked a Professor of Irish, ‘I’ve often wondered, but would there be a word in Irish that is the equivalent of manyana?’ The Professor of Irish (who was a Scot, although that doesn’t matter) thought for a long time and eventually replied, ‘Manyana. There are a couple of Irish words that come close, but there is nothing at all that conveys the horrible urgency of that word.’
And here are a couple for the Grandkids or the Second Basses:
What do insects learn in school? Mothematics
What do you call a mosquito on holiday? An itch-hiker.
