One afternoon, five American tourists in Ireland are taking in the sights when they see a sign that says, Sean’s Pub – All drinks 20 cents! In disbelief they enter the pub, thinking that this is too good to be true. Sean is standing behind the bar and in a gregarious voice says, “Welcome lads, let me pour you a drink.” After a couple of rounds, at only 20 cents per drink, their curiosity gets the best of them. Sean explains that he hit the Irish Lottery and quit his boring bookkeeping job to open the pub of his dreams. As the Americans lifted their pints, they couldn’t help noticing a group at the other end of the pub that hadn’t yet ordered a drop. One asked Sean, “What’s with them?” Sean replied, “Right, never mind them. That’s Angus and his crew from Scotland. They’re just waiting for happy hour.”

"The closest race I ever saw is the English."

But the young Scot again lapsed into a pensive mood which lasted long enough for the lass to ask him, "What are ye thinkin' now?" To which the lad replied, "Well, I was hopin' ye hadn't forgot the penny!"

One day after work the Saudi police rush in and arrest them and they are each sentenced to 20 lashes of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheikh announced: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping. The Scott was first in line; he thought for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back.” This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. When the punishment was done the Scott had to be carried away bleeding and crying with pain. The Englishman was next up. After watching the Scott in horror he said smugly, "Please fix two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again and the Englishman was soon led away whimpering loudly. Paddy was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheikh turned to him and said, "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest. For this, you may have two wishes!" "Thank you, your most royal and merciful highness," Paddy replied. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes." "Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheikh said with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish, what is it to be?" the Sheikh asked. Paddy smiled and said, "Tie the Englishman to my back."

"I'm the Duke of York!" he roared at St. Peter. St. Peter looked at his list and could not find his name. "Sorry," said St. Peter. You're not on the list. "What do you mean I'm not on the list???" the man thundered. "Don't you not know who I am???" "As a matter of fact, I do," said St. Peter, "But your name is not on the list." "That's not good enough," said the man. "I'm a very important person. I should be on the list." St. Peter tries to explain that it's not easy to get into heaven, and that as an Englishman you have to be kind to the Irish. When the Duke hears this he starts to complain, so St. Peter says that if had he had been kind to the Irish in his lifetime there could have been a chance. "Well!" roared the Duke. "I'll have you know that I have been very good to the Irish. "Why, once I met an Irish beggar who had lost her leg in a confrontation with my security team and I gave her a pound. And there was a time before when I met a young boy whose father had been killed by my troops and I have him a pound. Now, what do you say now, Mr. St. Peter???"

An Englishman, a Scott and our man Paddy Irishman die and find themselves at the pearly gates of heaven. St. Peter tells them that they can enter the gates if they can answer one simple question. St. Peter asks the Englishman, “What is Easter?” The Englishman replies, “Oh, that’s easy! It’s the holiday in America when the yanks all get together, eat turkey, and are thankful.” “Wrong!” replies St. Peter, and proceeds to ask the Scott the same question, “What is Easter?” The Scott replies, “Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents, and celebrate the birth of Jesus.” St. Peter looks at the Scott, shakes his head in disgust, tells him he’s wrong, and then peers over his glasses at Paddy and asks, “What is Easter?” Paddy smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes. “Sur, I know what Easter is.” “Oh?” says St. Peter, incredulously. “Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the Last Supper and Jesus was later deceived and turned over to the Romans by one of his disciples. The Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and hung on a cross with nails through his hands. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder.” St. Peter smiles broadly with delight. Then Paddy continues, “Every year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out... and, if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter.”

if they can produce an item representing the Christmas season, they will gain admission. The Englishman pulls out his lighter, flashes it and states, "'Tis a candle for the baby Jesus." St. Peter nods in approval and allows him entry. The Scot pulls out his keys and jingles them, St. Peter says, "What is that?" "Why, they are Jingle Bells for the infant Jesus!" the Scotsman states. Again an approving nod from St. Peter. Finally yer man Paddy Irishman reaches in his pocket and pulls out a pair of ladies panties. St. Peter is aghast and sternly asks, "What are those?" The Irishman matter of factly states "Those are Carols!"

St. Patrick looks at the Irishman and asks "What was the name of the famous ocean-liner that sank after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage?" “Oh, that’s easy,” the Irishman replies, “the Titanic.” So St. Patrick welcomes him into Heaven. Next he asks the Scott, “How many people died on that ship?” “Oooh, that’s tough, but I saw the movie, and I think that it was 1,500.” St. Patrick steps aside and the Scott walks into Heaven. Finally, St. Patrick turns to the Englishman and says, “Name them.”
