An Irish Family Tradition


Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.
It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 18th birthday.
On that special day, they’d each walked across the lake to the pub on the far side for their first legal drink.
So when Paddy’s, 18th birthday came ’round, he and his pal Mick, took a boat out to the middle of the lake, Paddy, stepped out of the boat …and nearly drowned!
Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.
Furious and confused, Paddy, went to see his grandmother.
‘Granny,’ he asked, “It’s me 18th birthday, so why can’t I walk ‘cross the lake like me father, his father, and his father before him?”
Granny looked deeply into Paddy’s, troubled brown eyes and said, “Because your father, your grandfather and your great grandfather were all born in December, when the lake is frozen, and you were born in August, ya dip shit.

Actually, I thing the legal drinking age in Ireland is 2, but I could be wrong.

At least in Ireland we have beer you can drink not like that warm piss called Budweiser or Coors, which supports the Gay Agenda. Guinness is good for you.
