It was, IIRC, Dave Allen who explained during a discussion on such jokes that, in essence, the Irish have two languages, and that "Irishisms" happen when English words are given the connotations of their Gaelic equivalents or vice versa. Which is interesting as the same could be said of at least some other butt-of-jokes nationalities - e.g. Belgians, Newfoundlanders. However the doesn't seem to apply to the Swiss.

Neither does it explain the story of the Irishman who cut the end off an overlong extending ladder - which the manager of the hire shop swore was true.

OK, puns are funny and don't poke fun an anyone. But most jokes do, yet many of them are funny and in poor taste/offensive.

I still don't find most terrorism jokes funny, but that doesn't mean I think nobody should be allowed to tell them. People who know me don't tell them to me, and that's enough.

By the same token, keep your sexist and racist jokes out of the office, but not necessarily out of your lives, if they are funny, the jokes I mean, not your lives.

Why don't women have brains? Because they don't have a penis to carry'm around in! is a funny joke you can't tell at the office, even though it is funny. Yes it's sexist, but it's still funny.

Libertarian people of no race whatsoever have the freedom to be offended by everything.

Extinct races like the Tasmanians have nothing to say or be offended about.

The Irish race to procreate aggravates the advocates of pedigree and class but there isn't a mongrel from Donegal who is neither comical or prodigal when asked.

Mrrzy: "Um, it was Mary, not Jesus, who was coceived immaculately."

Yes, Mary's conception without Original Sin is the whole point of the joke. As a former teacher, I could empathize with Jesus' thinking, "The ONE person who ever lived who could spoil my lesson, and she shows up."

Well, as long as it's Sunday, in the interest of ecumenicism: As a Buddhist, I found these two pretty funny.

Q. What did the Buddhist say to the sandwich vendor at the ball game?
A. Make me one with everything!

. . . . . . . . . . .

After the man received his sandwich, he gave the vendor a $20 bill. The vendor just smiled. The Buddhist demanded, "Where is my change?"
The vendor replied, "O, one with everything, change comes from within."

Um, it was Mary, not Jesus, who was coceived immaculately. That is why she could be the mother of god. If you buy into any of that.
I just got to visit our old family friend who was the Peace Corps doctor who saved my life when I got malaria in the 60s. I should have died, they all said.
I am in the field that finds "in poor taste" and "offensive" to be fairly synonymous. But what is funny about jokes that aren't poking fun at *something*?

Thanks Jackaroodave for your post and your comment about Flanders and Swann , spot on
My Mudcat "Wee Frees" should have been   "Mudcat Wee Frees" I think you know who I mean. My comment was about the attitude of banning anything enjoyable rather than anything religious.

That's what I suspected, Senoufou. So if the joke is also a dig at the PFC and other Protestants, it has more layers than I thought.

When I was active in the Portland (Maine) Food Co-Op buying club, I picked up and delivered a friend's order on Passover as a Pesach goy. Not quite a Shabbos goy, but similar.

Protestants in general and particularly the Wee Frees do NOT subscribe to the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. There is no scripture to support it, and they believe that only Jesus was conceived without 'sin'.
I was much amused Jackaroodave (but not surprised) to see that their website is closed on a Sunday!
When I lived in Edinburgh as a student, I lodged for a time with a Presbyterian family, and one Sunday foolishly did a bit of hand-washing of underwear in my little sink. When I went outside to hang it on the washing line, all hell broke loose. One would think I was dancing naked in the garden.
I was told in no uncertain terms never, ever to do such a wicked thing again. With trembling hand I unpegged my little vest, knickers and bra and slunk indoors.

Kenny B: "That should really appeal to the Mudcat "Wee Frees"
They will be banning fighting and cannibalism next and even posting on Mudcat a view contrary to theirs"

I was puzzled by the reference to the Free Presbyterian Church, so I went to their website to check on their views about the Immaculate Conception, but it was closed for the Sabbath. No joke.

Question: Is Cannibalism allowed on mudcat?

It would seem that Cannibalism should be allowed. As Herodotus testifies,

"When Darius was king of Persia, he summoned the Greeks at his court, and asked them what they would take to eat the dead bodies of their fathers. They replied that they would not do it for any money in the world. Later, in the presence of the Greeks, he asked some Indians, Callatiae, who do in fact eat their parents' dead bodies, what they would take to burn them. They uttered a cry of horror and forbade him to mention such a dreadful thing. One can see by this what custom can do."

On the contrary, Cannibalism is not allowed, for as the learned doctors Swan and Flanders note, "Eating people is wrong."

Kenny B's joke about Mary's immaculate conception sounds like a Catholic insider joke to me, since without a knowledge of that dogma, it has no point. As such, except for the superfluous first five words, I enjoyed it, though not a Catholic; theological jokes are rare on the ground.

During Jesus's tour of Ireland a woman was crouching in a corner with a crowd around her preparing to stone her to death. Jesus stopped them and said, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Suddenly a woman at the back of the crowd fired off a stone at the adulteress. At which point Jesus looked over and said, "Mother! Sometimes you really pis me off!".

That should really appeal to the Mudcat "Wee Frees"
They will be banning fighting and cannibalism next and even posting on Mudcat a view contrary to theirs

Still waiting to read a joke on this thread that makes me laugh.

The "people have lost their sense of humour" trope always reminds me of a piece I read many years back by a woman who was treated to many jokes about her breasts by the engineers in her workplace.

If I have the story right, she came in one day with a T-shirt with "CRANE" printed on the front, over her bosom. Some of the men came up and asked her what it meant, and she said that it was because it was useful for erecting penises.

They didn't find it funny. She was sacked.

Pole O'Mint - of Polish/Irish extraction.

It's most annoying when people make jokes about 'thick' Irish folk.
My mother (from Cork, with an extremely Irish name!) was a very very intelligent woman, and witty with it. She had a wonderful way with words and could imitate any accent perfectly. She also made us laugh with puns and wordplay, and could do difficult crosswords at breakneck speed. All her family were the same. And my nieces have inherited these traits too.

Many years ago one of my friends, Ronda, had a German boyfriend. He was called Hans-Werner, and never have I met a more humourless individual.
He was a banker from Munich and had the characteristic that, if asked his opinion, he just gave it, no holds barred.

We were all going out to dinner together, and Ronda appeared in a very nice outfit. She had bright red hair and always looked super. She foolishly asked him if he liked her dress. He replied,
"You are much too fett Ronda, und so it is much too teit. You need to loosss a lot ov weight."

We called him Hans, Knees and Boomps-a-daisy behind his back.
