Joke of the Day

An Irishman named O'Malley went to his doctor to determine the source

of his malady. The doctor, after a lengthy examination, sighed and

looked O'Malley in the eye and said, "I've some bad news for you. You

have cancer, and it's very bad. You'd best put your affairs in order."

O'Malley was shocked and saddened. But, being of solid character, he

managed to compose himself and walk from the doctor's office into the

waiting room. To his son who had been waiting, O'Malley said, "Well

son, we Irish celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when

things don't go so well. In this case, things aren't so well. I have

cancer. Let's head for the pub and have a few pints." After 3 or 4

pints, the two were feeling a little less somber. There were some

laughs and more beers. They were eventually approached by some of

O'Malley's old friends who asked what the two were celebrating.

O'Malley told them that the Irish celebrate the good and the bad. He

went on to tell them that they were drinking to his impending end. He

told his friends, "I have been diagnosed with "AIDS." His son's

eyebrows raised and he opened his mouth, but O'Malley raised his

finger and the frown on his face stifled what his son had planned to

say. The friends gave O'Malley their condolences, and they had a

couple more beers. After his friends left, O'Malley's son leaned over

and whispered his confusion. Dad, I thought you said that you were

dying from cancer? You just told your friends that you were dying from

AIDS!" O'Malley said, "I don't want any of them sleeping with your

mother after I'm gone."
