    A Watery Grave

    Post by daffyd on Wed Dec 15, 2010 7:14 pm


    Mick and Paddy had promised their uncle Seamus, who had been
    a seafaring gent all his life, to bury him at sea when he died.

    Of course, in due time, he did pass away and the boys kept their
    promise.

    They set off with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag
    and loaded onto their rowboat.

    After a while Mick says, 'Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?
    Without a word Paddy slips over the side, only to find
    himself standing in water up to his knees.

    'Dis'll neva do, Mick. Let's row some more.'

    After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again, but the
    water is only up to his belly, so they row on.

    Again Mick asks Paddy, 'Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?'

    Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says,
    'No, dis'll neva do.' The water was only up to his chest.

    So on they row and row and row and finally Paddy slips over the
    side and disappears.

    Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself
    into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface, gasping for breath.

    'Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy?'

    'Aye 'tis', says Paddy. 'Hand me da shovel.'
