The wise old Mother Superior from county Tipperary was dying.

The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable.

They gave her some warm milk to drink, but she refused it.

Then one nun took the glass back to the kitchen.

Remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

Back at Mother Superior’s bed, she held the glass to her lips.

Mother Superior drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop.

“Mother”, the nuns pleaded, “Please give us some wisdom before you die”.

She raised herself up in bed with a pious look on her face and said, “Don’t sell that cow”.


Truck Driver and Priest

A truck driver would amuse himself by running over lawyers he would see walking down the side of the road.   Every time he would see a lawyer walking along the road,   he would swerve to hit him,   and there would be a loud   “THUMP”   and then he would swerve back onto the road.   One day,   as the truck driver was driving along he saw a priest hitchhiking.   He thought he would do a good turn and pulled the truck over.

He asked the priest,   “Where are you going,   Father?”

“I’m going to the church 5 miles down the road,”   replied the priest.

“No problem,   Father!   I’ll give you a lift.   Climb in the truck.”   The happy priest climbed into the passenger seat and the truck driver continued down the road.

Suddenly the truck driver saw a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively he swerved to hit him.   But then he remembered there was a priest in the truck with him,   so at the last minute he swerved back away,   narrowly missing the lawyer.   However even though he was certain he missed the lawyer,   he still heard a loud   “THUD”.   Not understanding where the noise came from he glanced in his mirrors and when he didn’t see anything,   he turned to the priest and said,   “I’m sorry Father.   I almost hit that lawyer.”

“That’s okay”,   replied the priest.   “I got him with the door!”
