Memories

I remember the corned beef of my Childhood,
And the bread that we cut with a knife,
When the Children helped with the housework,
And the men went to work not the wife.

The cheese never needed a fridge,
And the bread was so crusty and hot,
The Children were seldom unhappy,
And the Wife was content with her lot.

I remember the milk from the bottle,
With the yummy cream on the top,
Our dinner came hot from the oven,
And not from a freezer; or shop.

The kids were a lot more contented,
They didn’t need money for kicks,
Just a game with their friends in the road,
And sometimes the Saturday flicks.

I remember the shop on the corner,
Where biscuits for pennies were sold
Do you think I’m a bit too nostalgic?
Or is it….I’m just getting Old?

Bathing was done in a wash tub,
With plenty of rich foamy suds
But the ironing seemed never ending
As Mum pressed everyone’s ‘duds’.

I remember the slap on my backside,
And the taste of soap if I swore
Anorexia and diets weren’t heard of
And we hadn’t much choice what we wore.

Do you think that bruised our ego?
Or our initiative was destroyed?
We ate what was put on the table
And I think life was better enjoyed.

Irish

The Irish mother-in-law arrives home from shopping to find her son-in-law Paddy in a steaming rage and hurriedly packing his suitcase. “What happened Paddy?” she asks anxiously.

“What happened? I’ll tell you what happened. I sent an E-mail to my wife (your daughter) telling her I was coming home today from my fishing trip. I get home…and guess what I found? Yes, your daughter, my wife Patricia, naked with Joe Murphy in our marital bed! This is unforgivable, the end of our marriage. I’m done. I’m leaving forever”

“Ah now, calm down, calm down Paddy” says his mother-in-law. “There is something very odd going on here. My daughter would never do such a thing! There must be a simple explanation. I’ll go speak to her immediately and find out what happened.”

Moments later, the mother-in-law comes back with a big smile. “Paddy, I told you there must be a simple explanation…She never got your E-mail.”

‘What a coincidence’ the farmer said. ‘This is a special day for me. I am celebrating.”
This is a special day for me too, I am also celebrating,’ said the woman.’
‘What a coincidence!’ said the farmer. As they clinked glasses he added: ‘What are you celebrating?’
‘My husband and I have been trying to have a child and today my gynecologist told me that I am pregnant!’
‘What a coincidence!’ said the man. ‘I’m a chicken farmer and all last year my hens were infertile, but today they are all laying eggs again.’
‘That’s great!’ said the woman, ‘How did your chickens become fertile?’
‘I used a different cock,’ he replied.
The woman smiled, clinked his glass and said ‘what a coincidence’!

Hunting Accident

Lyle was hunting geese up in the Minnesota woods.
He leaned the old 16 gauge against the corner of the blind to take a leak.

As luck would have it, his foolish dog Ginger knocked the gun over, it went off, and Lyle took most of an ounce of #4 in the groin.

Several hours later, lying in a Duluth hospital bed, he came to and there was his doctor, Sven.

“Vell Lyle , I got some good news and some bad news.
Da good news is dat you are going to be OK.
Da damage vas local to your groin, dere vas very little internal damage, and I vas able to remove all of da buckshot.

“What’s the bad news?”, asks Lyle.

“The bad news is dat dere vas some pretty extensive buckshot damage done to your pecker.
I’m going to have to refer you to my sister, Lena .”
“Well, I guess that isn’t too bad,” says Lyle . “Is your sister a plastic surgeon?”

“Not exactly,” Sven says. “She’s a flute player in da Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra.
And because all you have is Obamacare, she’s going to teach you where to put your fingers, so you don’t piss in your eye.

Wisdom Tooth

A guy goes to a female dentist to have a tooth extracted. She pulled out a large syringe to give an anesthetic shot.
“No way, no needles! I hate needles!”, the man exclaimed.
So she started to hook up the nitrogenous oxide tank, and the man said, “I can’t do the gas thing. Just the thought of having a mask on my face suffocates me!
The dentist then asked the patient if he had any objections to taking a pill.
“No,” he says, “I’m fine with pills.”
So the dentist gave him two little blue pills and he swallowed them.
“What are those?” He asked.
“Viagra,” she replied.
“I’ll be darned,” said the patient,
“I didn’t know Viagra worked as a pain killer.”
“It doesn’t,” said the dentist,
“But it will give you something to hold on to when I pull your tooth.”
