A joke for St. Patrick

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. To celebrate, we in Ireland have a public holiday. In an attempt to get in the mood I have my annual St. Patrick's joke.

Q. What did St. Patrick say as he was driving the snakes out of Ireland?
A. "You all right in the back there lads?"

Most Irish jokes are terrible, but this one wasn't bad.

On Saint Patrick's Day, an Irishman who had a little to much to drink was driving home from the city and his car was weaving violently all over the road. A cop pulled him over.
"So," said the cop to the driver, "Where have you been?"
"Why, I've been to the pub of course," slurs the drunk.
"Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had quite a few to drink this evening."
"I did all right," the drunk says with a smile.
"Did you know," says the cop, standing straight and folding his arms across his chest, "that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?"
"Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk. "For a minute there, I thought I'd gone deaf."
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
