Joke of The Day

 This bloke is in our pub in Temple Bar, really drunk.  Some lads decide to be good Samaritans and get him home. So they pick him up off the floor, and drag him out the door. On the way to the car, he falls down three times. When they get to his house, they help him out of the car and, he falls down four more times. They ring the bell, and the bloke's wife looks livid.   One of them says: "Here's your husband, Missus! Safe and sound."   And the wife says: "Yeah right. Now where the hell is his wheelchair?"

Quote of The Day

"A woman never forgets the men she could have had; a man, the women he couldn't."
