Cathal & Cearbhall

Let’s get you CHUCKLING.
Here’s a zinger to get you started..

Stopped at Ellis Island, brothers Cathal and Cearbhall from the bogs of Connemara were asked their profession. “Pilit” replied Cathal in his thick brogue, to the border guard’s delight. “A pilot? We could certainly do need those. In you come, Sir”.

Delighted to see how easy it was going to be, on being asked the same question Cearbhall proudly answered “Cutit” and started to walk past the checkpoint. Who halted his progress. “What’s that?”, the guard asked.
“Well, dya kno’, like, I cut de turf. In de turf bog, like”.
Unimpressed, the border guard said he was afraid the USA did not have any such bogs and would therefore not be requiring his services.

Cearbhall stood scratching his head, finally responding,
“But you’re jus’ afta’ lettin’ Cathal in, why can’t I come in, too?”.
“Well, your brother is a different case. Aeronautics is a rapidly expanding field of enterprise and we sure could do with another pilot.”
Disbelieving of the man’s ignorance, Cearbhall shouted at the border guard:
“Sure how can he pile it if I don’t cut it!?
