Mick and Paddy had promised their uncle Seamus, who had been a seafaring gent all his life, to bury him at sea when he died. Of course, in due time, he did pass away and the boys kept their promise.

They set off with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded onto their rowboat.

After a while Mick says "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?"

Without a word Paddy slips over the side, only to find himself standing in water up to his knees. "Dis'll neva do, Mick. Let's row some more".

After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again, but the water is only up to his belly, so they row on.

Again Mick asks Paddy "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?" Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says "No, dis'll neva do". The water was only up to his chest.

So on they row and row and row and finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears. Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface, gasping for breath. "Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy?"

"Aye "tis" says Paddy. "Hand me da shovel

Seamus made his way slowly down the road to Paddy's house after work. Seamus and Paddy were best friends and worked at the Guinness Brewery. Paddy's wife Mary answered the door when Seamus knocked with a heavy hand and heavier heart.

Mary says to Seamus, "What is it Seamus? And where is my dear husband Paddy?"

Seamus says, "Mary, I am so sorry to have to tell you this, but today at the Brewery, poor Paddy done drowned in a vat of Guinness after he fell in."

Mary, now inconsolable, cries out, "oh my poor sweet husband Paddy. Please tell me he went quickly!!!"

Seamus says to Mary, "I am afraid not Mary. Truth is, he climbed out three times to go pee...."

Not just the Irish.....

A wealthy Arab Sheikh was admitted to the hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, they needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out.

Finally, a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman in appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, 5 carats of diamonds, and $50,000 dollars.

A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. The hospital telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate more of his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a Thank-you card and a box of Chocolates. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had before.

He phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me another BMW, diamonds and money ... but you only gave me a Thank-you card and a box of Chocolates".

To this the Arab replied: "Aye Laddie, but I have Scottish blood in me veins now".

Was that the original, the Christmas, European or Vegas Audrey?
It was the Barrett Jackson auction going on now at Scottsdale. They said it was an original car, but I don't recall if they really said which movie. From the way they talked I took it to be the the original Vacation. They just said Aubrey was in the passenger seat. Don't know which one, but I didn't think she looked very good.

I’m getting a cup of coffee, and a lady walks up to me and says something like “You got a Tesla, thats so great for the environment!! I’m so impressed with them and you decision to give up oil.”

Now, normally, I’d just say thank you and smile. However, this lady is SUPER friggin crunchy... I’m mean in as way, right or wrong, that sorta sets me off.

So I say “Thanks! ...but I make up for it with all the guns I own.”


Boom.... she lost it.

It appears only leftist crunchy types by Teslas.... humph.

Truly amazing what the FED can create with QE, issues arise when they quit backstopping the REPO market. Most folks have no idea the financial market failed in the same way that started The financial crisis in September 19. Wonder how long this will continue before the inevitable happens.
