    Default Irish Wit

    As a nation i think we have a sence of humor like no other, beit in scarcasm or wit.


    I know when some smart arse starts asking me personal questions in my Taxi (ie when was the last time i got me hole) just turn to him and say the last time i got my hole the pope was a alter boy!

    I know there are some dull passangers that just dont get it, almost always from the upper classes with marbles in thier mouths or tourists.

    But those two demographics would be unlikely to ask that question using that term so why would you have cause to reply with that retort?

    Unless you just say it anyway regardless of who's in the cab

    Read "Irish Wit" by Seán McCann, published by the O'Brien Press in 1968. Some brilliantly funny Irish witticisms in there.

    When the henpecked husband died and went below, he immediatelt started throwing his weight around and giving orders to everyone. "Say, fellow," roared Satan, "you're acting as though you owned this place."

    "I do," says your man, "me wife gave it to me while I was on earth."

    This is without a doubt true, some self deprecating some intended as "put down humour", but humour is a very important part of our way of communicating..it breaks down barriers in meeting and allows us to touch on subjects that are sometimes to difficult to talk about openly.....I know many funny people and they are all valued as it takes real observation to be witty...

    Some PPL mistake an attempt at reconciliation, as a personal attack or insult......

    It seems to me that you have mastered neither, ignorance, maybe. I hope I'm never unfortunate enough to end up in your taxi.
