I'm the type of person who sees humour in everything, she says from her wheelchair. I guess its a reflection of my personality in that I tend to be positive in life more often than not, no matter what the situation. Even though its a coping mechanism for the hard times in life, and some of it is very hard I have to admit at times, I remain a half cup full sort of person, although my husband thinks I'm positively perverse. So here's a disabled joke I stole from somewhere else. It makes me laugh every time I read it, hope you like it too.
Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Mick, the bartender says, " You'll not be drinking anymore tonight Paddy." Paddy replies, "OK Mick, I'll be on my way then." Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face. "Shoite" he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face, "Shoite, Shoite!"He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he'll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air, feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk and falls flat on his face."Bi'Jesus...I'm fockin' focked," he says. He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door, hauls himself up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says "No fockin' way". He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says "I can make it to the bed." He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says "Fock it" and falls into bed.The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says, "Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink last night?" Paddy says, "I did Jess. I was fockin' pissed. But how'd you know?""Mick phoned...You left your wheelchair at the pub."
Its a cracker.

  1. I just got a Google alert for this because I had flagged St. Patrick's Day. Why? Because I have a good Irish cozy mystery out, all about St. Patrick's Day, called In St. Patrick's Custody. I think you'd like it. Patrick and Grace, the sr. sleuths in it, (according to one reviewer) "get into more trouble than a couple of two-year olds, but they have more fun than a barrel of monkeys getting out of it."
    Now, as to your joke. My husband is in a wheelchair. I read this to him and we both nearly fell over laughing. He did say to ask you if Paddy ever did remember the cab driver who probably gave him a ride home! LOL!
    Thanks for the chuckle. Or rather the guffaw. I am marking your blog as a favorite.
    Make it a great day.
