A Wee Bit of Humor to Warm Your Hearts this Cold Buffalo Day
A group of Americans was touring Ireland. One of the women in the group was a real curmudgeon, constantly complaining:
“The bus seats are uncomfortable! The food is terrible! It’s too hot! It’s too cold! These accommodations are awful…”
The group soon arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone.
“Good luck will be followin’ ya all your days if you kiss the Blarney Stone,” said the tour guide. “But Unfortunately, it’s being cleaned today—so no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow.”
“We can’t be here tomorrow!” shouted the nasty woman. “We have some other boring tour to go on. So, I guess we can’t kiss the stupid stone.”
“Well now,” said the tour guide. “It is said that if you kiss someone who has kissed the stone, you’ll have the same good fortune.”
“And I suppose you’ve kissed the stone,” said the woman.
“No, ma’am,” said the guide, “But I’ve sat on it.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
