Barking dog
 
Paddy & his wife are lying in bed & the neighbours dog is barking like mad in the garden. Paddy says 'feck this!' & storms off.

He comes back upstairs 5 mins later & his wife asks 'What did you do?'
Paddy replies

'I've put the dog in our garden, lets see how they like it!

Replace the word "Paddy" with the word "Nigger" and see does anyone find that post offensive.

Despite the fact "Feck" is associated with Irish profanity, just because our hapless Husband is called Paddy doesn't mean it's a racist joke.

Have some more Baileys, dear, really...:p

I was only making the point that the term "Paddy" can be considered a derogatory term for anyone who is Irish, and Paddy Irishman jokes died a deserved death some time in the mid 80's. Surprised to see them making a return and assuming it was through mild ignorance than any racially motivated slur on Irish people generally.

I'll go off now for a pint of guinness and a fight.

... then you girls fight amongst yourselves, you might even find some toenails to fight with as well. Some people need to take a chill pill. In about another 100 years, there will still be Irish jokes, German jokes, swiss jokes and the usual collection of others among them. I'm Irish and the joke was ok. Not hugely funny, I've heard better but truly, a good try... get into the Christmas spirit and don't be so gloody negative! I also have to work this week, no need to make other suffer for my lack of planning eh!?:msnnerd:

A bloke and a tiger walk into a bar.

The bloke says, "do you serve * in here?"

Barman replies, "yes of course we do, we're not racist in here."

"Great," the bloke replies. "A pint for me, and a * for the tiger


Am I in the Christmas spirit yet??

I love Asterix and I think the last joke was very offensive to all French and Belgian people and any fans of that loveable Gaul!
