    Irish Burial at Sea

    Mick and Paddy had promised their Uncle Seamus, who had been a seafaring man all his life,
    to bury him at sea when he died.

    Of course in due time, he did pass away and the boys kept their promise.
    They set off with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded into their rowboat.
    After a while Mick says, "Do yer tink dis is fer enuf out, Paddy?"

    Without a word Paddy slips over the side, only to find himself in water up to his knees.

    "Dis'll never do, Mick. Let's row some more."

    After a bit more rowing, Paddy slips over the side again but the water is only up to his belly,
    so they row on. Again, Mick asks Paddy, "Do yer tink dis is fer unuf out, Paddy?"
    Once again, Paddy slips over the side and almost imediately says, "No, dis'll neva do."
    The water was only up to his chest.

    So they row and row and row and finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears. Quite a
    bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when suddenly Padddy
    breaks the surface gasping for breath.

    "Well is it deep enuf yet, Paddy?"

    WAIT FOR IT
