The Discreet Irishman

Rate this post

Six retired Irishmen are playing poker in O’Leary’s apartment when Paddy Murphy loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table.
Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up.
After half an hour, Michael O’Connor looks around and asks, “Oh, me boys, someone’s got to tell Paddy’s wife. Who will it be?”
They draw straws. Paul Gallagher picks the short one. The others tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don’t make a bad situation any worse.
“Discreet? I’m the most discreet Irishman you’ll ever meet. Discretion is me middle name. Leave it to me.”
Gallagher goes over to Murphy’s house and knocks on the door.
Mrs. Murphy answers, and asks what he wants. Gallagher declares, “Your husband just lost $500, and is afraid to come home.”
“Tell him to drop dead!,” says Murphy’s wife.
“I’ll go tell him,” says Gallagher.
H/t beloved fellow Joseph!  😀
