Open thread - Thursday

After weeks of hard work, Mrsgunka and Pallottine are finally ready:

Here's a different version:

The story of St Patrick as told by a young Irish girl:

This version of the story is more widely known:

I couldn't resist a couple of Irish jokes today...

An American walks into an Irish pub and says, "I'll give anyone $100 if they can drink 10 Guinnesses in 10 minutes."

Most people just ignore the absurd bet and go back to their conversations.

One guy even leaves the bar.

A little while later that guy comes back and asks the American, "Is that bet still on?"

"Sure," he says.

So, the bartender lines 10 Guinnesses up on the bar the Irishman drinks them all in less than 10 minutes.

As the American hands over the money he asks, "Where did you go when you just left?"

The Irishman answers, "I went next door to the other pub to see if I could do it."

Two Irishmen, Paddy & Murphy, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter.

While rummaging through the boat’s provisions, Paddy stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously.

To the amazement of Paddy, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three.

Without giving much thought to the matter, Paddy blurted out, “Make the entire ocean into Guinness!

The genie clapped his hands and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished.

Only the gentle lapping of Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances.

Murphy looked disgustedly at Paddy, whose wish had been granted.

After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke: “Nice going Paddy! Now we’re going to have to pee in the boat!!

Happy St Patrick's Day!
