Irish Confession
"Bless me father-- for I have sinned.

I have been with a loose woman."

The priest asks, "Is that you, little Tommy Shaughnessy?"

"Yes, Father, it is.

"And, who was the woman you were with?"

"Sure and I can't be tellin' you Father.

I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"Well, Tommy, I'm sure to find out sooner or later, so you may as well tell me now.

Was it Brenda O'Malley?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Patricia Kelly?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Liz Shannon?"

"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."

"Was it Cathy Morgan?"

"My lips are sealed."

"Was it Fiona McDonald, then?"

"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."

The priest sighs in frustration.

"You're a steadfast lad,Tommy Shaughnessy,and I admire that.

But you've sinned, and you must atone.

You cannot attend church mass for three full months. Be off with you now!"

Tommy walks back to his pew.

His friend Sean slides over to his seat and whispers "well... what'd you get?"

"Three months vacation and five good leads."


BTW MY great grandfather was from Slego.

5. ah its ok
Dumbya got Slovakia and Slovenia mixed up one time, and guess who has blood from each of those :D, I was offended, lol and when my dad said they were the same. Hes Irish and German, lol most western europeans probably think those are the same but they are different. Sligo seems to be near Northern Ireland which I btw think should be Irish territory. Ireland unite eh?

22. Sorry, I made a mistake
I don't wear orange on St Paddy's day I wear green. I do know when It is and what not to wear.

Do you know why you don't wear orange on St. Patrick's Day? It has something to do with Protestant and Catholic.
