Working With The Lights Out – Irish Humor
Posted by LOTGK on March 16, 2011
Paddy and Mick were working on a local building site when Paddy says to Mick “I can not be bothered working all day. I want to go home.” so Paddy climbs to the top of the structure he was working on and hangs upside down on a steel girder. The foreman of the site see’s Paddy and comes out of the office and shouts up to him, “Paddy, what the devil do you reckon you’re doing up there upside down?”
Paddy looks down at the foreman and says “I’m pretending to be a light bulb!” The foreman scratches his head and yells up to Paddy, “Go home Paddy, you’re being stupid today. We don’t need you.” Paddy climbs down and smiles at Mick as he punches the time clock heading out the door.
Mick decides Paddy had a great idea and tries to follow suit and tells the foreman that he is going home too and begins to put his coat on. As Mick was heading toward the time clock the foreman yells over to Mick, “And where the devil do you think you are going Mick?” Mick replies, “If you think I’m working in the dark that high up you’re crazy!”
