    Wouldn’t the use of Oirish allude to the fact that the speaker of the joke is themself Irish? Just my reading of it, no offence intended if you are yourself Irish.

    I don’t think the Irish have ever told Irish jokes, have they?

    Frank Carson does.

    Dave Allen used to tell jokes about the Irish but I don’t remember him telling ‘Irish Jokes’.

    I’ve only ever met lovely Irish people when abroad, once they realise you, as a Brit, have no ridiculous historic preconceptions of them. Warm, funny and intelligent people, but they’ve always started off as slightly aggressive, dismissive and/or a bit defensive towards us. Not surprising I suppose given this example.

    seven, yes my error there 🙂 . Their reference to us ‘Brits’ IME, but you are probably correct they actually ment ‘English’.

    I’ve never met any aggression from the irish either, apart from once in Donegal as a teenager – in deep IRA territory.

    i reckon that a lot of irish folk pretend to be a bit thick, to keep up the myth, unlike the rest of us, who are too dim to pretend…… 😀

    Can’t say I miss being called a terrorist bastard in midlands pubs. Or maybe they were calling me thick and I misunderstood.

    I know a few Irish who are as thick as pigsh!t (& can give you examples). However I also know even more English who are either just as thick, or thicker.
    However (again) what do you mean by ‘thick’?

    PS, Ton knows what I work as. 😉

    i went on tour with an irish band and they were all fantastic chaps, so having undertaken this in depth study of the irish i can safely say ders more to oirland dan dis that all irish people are awesome.

    but not darcy, he likes to point out how poor we are by bragging about heated wing mirrors.

    how the other half live 🙄
