A Word About Irish Humour

A Word About Irish Humour

by Maurie Nord

No, I Unexaggerated. I was afraid of Will Strunk.  There are three words:

Self-debasing.

Does that fella count as one werd  if hyfernayted as an objective of humour?

Satirical.

Yer ancient Geeks and yer Mormons learned about this from an Irish  fellow

named Smith or Smithy. Either one is okay.

Sarcastic.

By that I don’t mean ‘sarcaustic’. The Irish don’t use sarcausticism until the

Irish temper is brought to a boil.

 

The Newfoundlanders of Canada have the same sort of humour because

they are mostly of Scots-Irish ancestry.

 

Some of the funniest laughs in the world come from Eire Land

And so do some of the finest minds.
