Happy St Patrick's Day

I realize it's almost 5 in Lawrence, but not here -- my St Patty's day is just starting.So Happy St Patrick's Day =)Two Irishmen, Patrick & Michael, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Patrick stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously To the amazement of Patrick, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter, Patrick blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into Guinness Beer!" The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances. Michael looked disgustedly at Patrick whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going Patrick! Now we're going to have to pee in the boat!

This is more an "Englishman" joke than an Irish one, but here it is anyway:

A large ship sinks at sea and only eight survivors wash ashore on the inevitable desert island: two Englishmen, two Scotsmen, two Irishmen, and and two Weshmen. Weeks go by, as they tend to do, and after about a month that island was a sight to see. The Scotsmen had built a bar, which the Irishmen were supporting, while the Welshmen sat around and sang songs about their drunken exploits. The two English gentlemen, however, were still waiting to be introduced.
