THE IRISH

Be they kings, or poet, or farmers, they’re a people of great worth. They keep company with the angels. And bring a bit of heaven here to Earth.

The Mouse

Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor when the pub was shut for the night.  Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse and stood in the pale moonlight.   He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor, then back on his haunches he sat. And all night long you could hear him roar, “Bring on the goddam cat!”

  1. As a stoic Scott I take great joy in my Irish sisters and brothers. There was a great scene in a movie I saw recently. An Irishman steps up to a bar with some non-Irish friends and say’s, ” do ya wanto know why God invented Guinness? So that the Irish wouldn’t take over the world.” :)
