Stop me if you've heard this one before...

An Englishman, a Scotsman, an Irishman, a Welshman, a Latvian, a Turk, a German, an Indian, several Americans (including a Su'rner, a New Englandah, and a Califawnian), an Argentinian, a Dane, an Australian, a Slovakian, an Egyptian, a Japanese, a Moroccan, a Frenchman, a New Zealander, a Spaniard, a Russian, a Guatemalan, a Colombian, a Pakistani, a Malaysian, a Croat, an Uzbek, a Cypriot, a Pole, a Lithuanian, a Chinese, a Sri Lankan, a Lebanese, a Cayman Islander, a Ugandan, an Iraqi, a Vietnamese, a Bosnian, a Korean, a Uruguayan, a Czech, an Icelander, a Mexican, a Finn, a Honduran, a Panamanian, an Andorran, an Israeli, a Venezuelan, a Fijian, a Peruvian, an Estonian, a Brazilian, a Portuguese, a Liechtensteiner, a Mongolian, a Hungarian, a Canadian, a Moldovan, a Haitian, a Norfolk Islander, a Macedonian, a Bolivian, a Cook Islander, a Tajikistani, a Samoan, an Armenian, an Aruban, an Albanian, a Greenlander, a Micronesian, a Virgin Islander, a Georgian, a Bahamanian, a Canary Islander, a Belarusian, a Cuban, a Tongan, a Cambodian, a Qatari, an Azerbaijani, a Romanian, a Chilean, a Kyrgyzstani, a Jamaican, a Filipino, a Ukrainian, a Dutchman, a Taiwanese, an Ecuadorian, a Bangladeshi, a Costa Rican, a Swede, a Bulgarian, a Serb, a Swiss, a Greek, a Belgian, a Singaporean, an Italian, a Norwegian and 47 sub-Saharan Africans walk into a fine restaurant.

"I'm sorry," sniffs the maître d', "but you can't come in here without a Thai."

Heh. Tip of the scratched 'n' dented SPH-4 to Don P.


As someone who is ten years old, going on sixty-one, I approve of this "joke."

  I hear the Thai has a nice Pad, however.
He dyes his jeans, too.
And the Aussie corrected his misperception that his pet 'roo was beige -- "Thai, me kangaroo's brown, sport..."
Was there a Panda?  Did he have a pistol?
*dropping trail of shiny bits leading back to topic*
Mebbe we should just Thai JTG up and put him in a closet, Bill.
 I've heard that one before. Is it too late to stop?
In other news, a village prepares itself for the return of its idiot:

I just don't know how to Thai it to the topic at hand.

U.S. and Irish genealogists have detected several other distant Irish cousins ... including Dick Benn and Ton Donovan

Named after you?

Heh. O'Bama is speaking at the gates of Trinity College in Dublin tomorrow. Where a scene from The Blue Max was filmed. The one with the crowd throwing cabbages and what have you. Just sayin'... 
If the crowd won't be able to get anything bigger than a button past the Seekrit Squirrels. They've already been there for almost a week.

Of course, the hullaballoo in Moneygall only reinforces the stereotype for the typical Irish joke, such as the one about the painting of the three black figures in the National Museum...

Yeah, it's mildly NSFW, too.
As long as they've got the Post Office secured, I think O'Bama will be safe for his Dublin Debut.

You mean... Pink is gonna be there? If only I had known... and she technically is SFW, too... but not in an art gallery.
If this Pink is there, nobody will be paying any attention to Obie.
That's 'cause it's the college kids' section, and they never listen to grownups, anyway! Bigger girls might prefer to shop in this department. More colors, too...     : D

Soooo, would this mean that Dah Wun is of the black Irish?
...Actually, what with all the lead-up, I expected the punchline to be something like "and the American pays..."

Hey, guys, and gals. I was making fun of myself, with the Panda comment, which also mentioned, as I'm sure y'all have noticed, a pistol. I do love me some commas, and insert them into any discourse, if I get the slightest chance to do so.
Hey, guys! I managed to get eight commas, count them yourselves, into my previous comment, which was about commas, and ain't that kewl?

I trust in the benevolence and sense of humor of the people who hang out here that none of y'all will actually take the trouble to hunt me down, knock me down, and kick me in the head...
Somebody just shoot him so he'll leave, please?
Unless, he, fires first, of course. Pandas, eat shoots and, leaves. 
What - No 'Ricans?

I am amused by the name of the village:  Moneygall.  For some reason, that just makes me laugh. 

 John, if you shoot him it will make a mess that you have to clean up. If you kill him he won't leave. You have to drag him out. I'm not sure there's a way to win this one.
