Joke Tuesday.

Discreet Irishman.

Six retired Irishmen were playing poker in O'Leary's apartment when Paddy Murphy loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up. Michael O'Connor looks around and asks: Oh, me boys, someone got's to tell Paddy's wife. Who will it be?

They draw straws. Paul Gallagher picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse.

Discreet??? I'm the most discreet Irishmen you'll ever meet. Discretion is me middle name. Leave it to me.

Gallagher goes over to Murphy's house and knocks on the door. Mrs. Murphy answers, and asks what he wants.

Your husband just lost $500, and is afraid to come home.

Tell him to drop dead, says Murphy's wife. I'll go and tell him, says Gallagher.

"All those with a wfe at home, one pace step forward MARCH!

(slight pause)

As you were Jones..."

All the best
