Irish Border Guards

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by TonyE, Jul 12, 2006.

  1. Five Englishmen are in an Audi Quattro.

    They arrive at the Irish border checkpoint between Northern and Eire. Paddy, the officer-in-charge, stops them and tells them: " ' fraid it's illegal to put five people in a Quattro."

    "What do you mean it is illegal?" asked the Englishmen.

    "Quattro means four" replies Paddy.

    "Quattro is just the name of the automobile," the Englishmen retort disbelievingly. "Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry five persons."

    "Oi! You can't pull that one on me," replies Paddy. "Quattro means four. You have five people in your car and are therefore breaking the law."

    The Englishman replies angrily, "You idiot! Call your Manager over - I want to speak with someone with more bloody intelligence!!!"

    "Sorry," replies Paddy, " 'fraid Murphy is busy with two guys in a Fiat Uno."
  2. Does the Ethnic Affairs Commission know about this spate of jokes about other nationalities, Tony??
