A small bit of this, a tiny bit of that

Syracuse.com: It didn’t take long for a Connecticut toymaker to hop on the news that President Barack Obama enjoys skeet shooting at Camp David.

The company, Herobuilders.com, is selling its “Skeet Shooting Obama Action Figure” through its website. The first 1,000 customers to order will get a special price, $19.95, according to the site.

                Murphy approached Mulligan’s bar. On the step outside he was accosted by a nun, Sister Marie, who said:

                ‘Surely a fine man like yourself is not going into this den of iniquity? Surely you’re not going to waste your hard-earned cash on the devil’s brew. Why don’t you go home and feed and clothe your wife and children?’

                ‘Hang on, Sister,’ spluttered Murphy. ‘How can you condemn alcohol out of hand? Surely it’s wrong to form such a rash judgement when you’ve never tasted the stuff?’

                ‘Very well,’ said Sister Marie. Till taste it just to prove my point. Obviously I can’t go into the pub, so why don’t you bring me some gin. Oh, and just to camouflage my intent, maybe you should bring it in a cup not a glass!’

                ‘OK,’ said Murphy and into the bar he breezed.

                ‘I’ll have a large gin,’ he said to the barman. ‘And can you put it in a cup?’

                ‘My God,’ said the barman, ‘that nun’s not outside again is she?’

        Oh, yeah ?

        Best Irish Bar in The World

        The first says: “Aye, this is a nice bar, but where I come from, there’s a better one. At MacDougal’s, you buy a drink, you buy another drink, and MacDougal himself will buy your third drink!”

        The second then starts: “That sounds like a nice bar, but where I come from, there’s a better one called Quinns. At Quinns, you buy a drink, Quinn buys you a drink. You buy another drink, Quinn buys you another drink.”

        Then the third pipes up. “You think that’s good? Where I come from, there’s this place called Murphy’s. At Murphy’s, they buy you your first drink, they buy you your second drink, they buy you your third drink, and then, they take you in the back and get you laid!”

        “Wow!” say the other two. “That sounds fantastic! Did that actually happen to you?” “No,” replies their friend, “but it happened to my sister!”

    This one is dedicated to you, chips.

    A popular bar has a new robotic barman installed.

    A guy comes in for a drink and the robot asks him: “What’s your IQ?”

    The man replies: “130.”

    So the robot goes on to make conversation about physics, astronomy and so on.

    The man listens intently and thinks: “This is really cool.”

    Another guy comes in for a drink and the robot asks him: “What’s your IQ?”

    The man response: “100.” So the robot starts talking about TV, the weather and so on.

    The man thinks to himself: “Wow, this is really cool.”

    A third guy comes into the bar. As with the others the robot asks him: “What’s your IQ?”

    The man replies: “80.”

    The robot says: “So, how are manchester united doing these days?”

    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 kneels.

    “Shawny ole boy, we’ve been friends all our lives, and now I’m leaving ‘ere. I ‘ave one last request fir ye to do.”

    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, do you mind I strain it through me kidneys first?”

    There was once an Irishman named Murphy who walked into an American Bar. He sat down and asked the Bartender “Give me three shots o’ your finest Irish Whiskey!” the Bartender complies. He then drinks one glass after another.

    After about a week the bartender asks, “Murphy, would it be better for yeh if I put all three shots of Irish Whiskey into one glass?”

    Murphy replied, “well no. See I have two other brothers back at home, Patrick and Owen, and every time I come into a Pub or Bar I order a shot for each o’ them so I can remember the good times.”

    Well, after another week of this routine, Murphy comes into the bar and only asks for two shots of Irish Whiskey. The bartender immediately says “Murphy, is everything ok? Did something happen to one of your brothers?” “Oh no”, Murphy said, “I just decided to quit drinkin”

    Three men walk into a bar: a Frenchman, an Italian and an Irishman. Each orders one beer. Three flys fly into the bar and one fly lands in each man’s beer.

    The Italian man plucks the fly out of his beer, says “tutto e bene” (all is well)” and drinks the beer.

    The Frenchman shows his beer with the bug still inside it to the bartender and demands another beer.

    The Irishman yanks the bug out of the beer, grabs it by it’s wings, shakes it while yelling

    “Cough it up, you wee theivin’ bastard!”

    Paddy Englishman, Paddy Irishman and Paddy Scotsman all went to a hotel.

    ‘There is only one room left, and its on the top floor which is 90 floors up but the lift is broken, so you’ll have to take the stairs’ said the secretary.

    They took the room and went up the stairs.

    When they got to the 30th floor Paddy Englishman told a really sad story!

    A little while later when they got to the 60th floor Paddy Scotsman told an even sadder story!

    And finally, when they reached the top floor, Paddy Irishman told the saddest story ever!… ‘Ive left the keys on the front counter…’
