MY LAST WISH
Two Irishmen, Patrick Murphy and Shawn O'Brian grew
up together and were lifelong friends. But alas, Patrick developed cancer, and was dying. While on his deathbed, Patrick
called to his buddy, Shawn, "O'Brian, come 'ere. I 'ave a request for ye." Shawn walked to his friend's bedside and
"Shawny ole boy, we've been friends all our lives, and now I'm leaving 'ere. I 'ave one last request fir ye
O'Brian burst into tears, "Anything Patrick, anything ye wish. It's done."
"Well, under me bed is a
box containing a bottle of the finest whiskey in all of Ireland. Bottled the year I was born
it was. After I die, and they plant me in the ground, I want you to pour that fine whiskey over me grave so it might soak
into me bones and I'll be able to enjoy it for all eternity."
O'Brian was overcome by the beauty and in the true Irish
spirit of his friend's request, he asked, "Aye, tis a fine thing you ask of me, and I will pour the whiskey. But, might I
strain it through me kidneys first?"
The IrishmanAn Irishman was drinking at the pub all night.
The bartender came up to him and told him that the bar was closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his
face. He tried to stand up one more time with the same result. So he figured he'd just crawl outside, hang out for a while,
get some fresh air and hopefully that would sober him up.
Once outside he stood up and fell again - right on his face.
He decided to crawl the four blocks to his home and when he arrived at the door he tried one more time with the same results.
Exhausted, he then gave up and started crawling to the bedroom.
When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand
up. This time he managed to pull himself upright but he quickly fell right into the bed and fell sound asleep as soon as his
head hit the pillow.
The next morning, he woke up with his wife standing over him shouting at him, "'So, you've been out
'What makes you say that?' he asked as he put on an innocent look.
"The pub called, you left your
flaming wheelchair there!"
