Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! Drink till you're Irish!!! (That's just a wee joke. I am in no way implying that all Irish are lushes, but as someone who proudly carries some Irish blood, we typically don't shy away from the drink...and if the shoe fits...)
Anyway, this joke is also a Scottish one; as Scots, too, know a fine single-malt when they taste one!
Mac and Paddy were fishing off the coast one fine morning. Alas, they strayed far out to sea and soon became lost.
They floated for days, hoping for rescue, but just as soon as things seemed grim, Mac fished a bottle out of the water.
He took it off his hook and wiped it clean and as he was doing so, a genie popped out and said, "Thank you, Master, your wish is my command. I will give you anything you want."
Mac didn't even hesitate, "I wish the sea were made of fine whisky," he blurted.
Paddy looked aghast!
"For God's sake, Man," he cried, "why on earth would you wish such a thing? Now, we'll have to piss in the boat!"
