Today's Laugh

Two Irishmen walk into a pet shop. Right away they go over to the bird section. Gerry says to Paddy, "Dat's dem." The assistant comes over and asks if he can help them.

"Yeah, we'll take four of dem dere birds in dat cage op dere," says Gerry. "Put dem in a "peeper bag." The assistant does and the two guys pay for the birds and leave the shop.

They get into Gerry's van and drive until they are high up in the hills. They stop at the top of a cliff with a 500-foot drop. "Dis looks loike a grand place. Eh?" says Gerry.

He then takes his pair of birds out of the bag, places them on his shoulders, hands the other pair to Gerry, and jumps off the cliff. Paddy holds the 'peeper bag' as he watches as his mate drop off the edge, fall for a few seconds, then 'SPLAT.' As Paddy looks over the edge of the cliff he shakes his head and says, "Dis budgie jumpin' is too dangerous for me."

A minute later, Seamus arrives. He too has been to the pet shop. He too walks up carrying the familiar 'peeper bag.' He pulls a parrot out of the bag. Paddy notices that, in his other hand, Seamus is carrying a gun.

"Hi, Paddy, watch dis," Seamus says. He launches himself over the edge of the cliff. Paddy watches the rapid descent. Halfway down, Seamus takes out the gun, blows the parrot's head off, and continues to plummet until there is a 'SPLAT,' as he joins Gerry's remains at the bottom. Paddy shakes his head and says, "An' oim never troyin' dat parrotshooting nider."

A few minutes after Seamus splats himself, Sean strolls up. He too has been to the pet shop and he walks up carrying the familiar 'peeper bag.' Instead of a parrot he pulls a chicken out of the bag. With a good grip on the chicken's feet, Sean launches himself off the cliff ... with the usual result. Once more Paddy shakes his head. "Oh, Sean, first der was Gerry wit his budgie jumping, den Seamus parrotshooting, and now you with your hengliding".
