The Saturday Funny!

Laughter is the best medicine.

The Irish nation is known for its wit and gift of the gab. Having never kissed the Blarney Stone myself (doctor’s orders), I rely on others to say what needs to be said, in the only way they know how.

On the subject of Existence:

Will we ever know the answer to that age-old question ‘Why do philosophers exist?’ – Sinead Murphy. Irish Writer (b. 1959)

What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind. – George Berkeley Philosopher (1685 – 1753)

On the subject of Ireland and The Irish

Why should Ireland be treated as a geographical fragment of England Ireland is not a geographical fragment, but a nation. Charles Stewart Parnell (1846 – 1891)

The Irish people do not gladly suffer common sense. Oliver St. John Gogarty. Poet and essayist (1878 – 1957)

You’ll never beat the Irish. Irish football supporters (after a 0-0 draw)

On the subject of The Law

I have never seen a situation so dismal that a policeman couldn’t make it worse. Brendan Behan, Playwright (1923 – 1964)

Law grinds the poor; and rich men rule the law. Oliver Goldsmith. Poet and Writer. (1728 – 1774)
