Joke of The Day

 Sitting in the bar Scotty asked his 40-year-old
friend Paddy, "How come you aren't married?"
Paddy: "I haven't found the right woman yet."
Scotty: "So what are you looking for?"
Paddy: "Oh she's got to be real pretty, - a good
cook and house keeper, she's got to know how to
handle money, have a nice and pleasant
personality -- and money, she's got to have
money, and a nice big house wouldn't hurt either."
Scotty: "A woman like that would be crazy to marry YOU!"
Paddy: "Oh, it's okay, if she is crazy."
