|Two Irishmen's - Irish Spirit |
Posted by Alfred F Seneviratne on 2/16/2011
Two Irishmen, Pat Murphy and Sean O'Brian grew up together and were lifelong friends. But alas, Patrick developed cancer and was dying. While on his deathbed, Patrick called his buddy,
“Sean, come 'ere. I'ave a request for ye.”
Sean walked to his friend's bedside.
”Shawny ole boy, we've been friends all our lives, and now I'm leaving this world. I 'ave one last request fir ye to do.”
O'Brian burst into tears, “Anything Pat, anything ye wish.
”Well, under me bed is a box containing a bottle of the finest whiskey in all of Ireland… bottled the year I was born, it was. After I die and they plant me in the ground, I want you to pour that fine whiskey over me grave so it might soak into me bones and I'll be able to enjoy it for all eternity.”
O'Brian was overcome and in the true Irish spirit of his friend's request, he asked, “Aye, ‘tis a fine thing you ask of me, and I will pour the whiskey. But, might I strain it through me kidneys first?”
