an irish joke

With St. Paddy's day just around the corner.... here is a cute irish joke. I am half chinese and half irish so this is the irish humor in me. )I did the chinese humor already although perhaps not PC but funny to me just the same)

The Irishman Who Orders Three Beers

An Irishman by the name of Paul McLean moves into a tiny hamlet in County
Kerry, walks into the pub and promptly orders three beers. The bartender
raises his eyebrows, but serves the man three beers, which he drinks quietly
at a table, alone. An hour later, the man has finished the three beers and
orders three more. This happens yet again. The next evening the man again
orders and drinks three beers at a time, several times. Soon the entire town
is whispering about the Man Who Orders Three Beers.

Finally, a week later, the bartender broaches the subject on behalf of the
town. "I don't mean to pry, but folks around here are wondering why you
always order three beers."

"'Tis odd, isn't it?" the man replies. "You see, I have two brothers, and
one went to America, and the other to Australia. We promised each other that
we would always order an extra two beers whenever we drank as a way of
keeping up the family bond."

The bartender and the whole town was pleased with this answer, and soon the
Man Who Orders Three Beers became a local celebrity and source of pride to
the hamlet, even to the extent that out-of-towners would come to watch him

Then, one day, the man comes in and orders only two beers. The bartender
pours them with a heavy heart. This continues for the rest of the evening --

he orders only two beers. Word flies around town. Prayers are offered for
the soul of one of the brothers.

The next day, the bartender says to the man, "Folks around here, me first of
all, want to offer condolences to you for the death of your brother. You
know -- the two beers and all..."

The man ponders this for a moment, then replies, "You'll be happy to hear
that my two brothers are alive and well. It's just that I, meself, have
decided to give up drinking for Lent."
