    Default One Brave Irishman

    One day, little Hiram jr. came home from school and asked his mom, Medawisla(short for Steph),," Where is Daddy Mom? He said he was going to take me out shooting!! Well say's Medawisla,,,I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. Your poor daddy was working at the brewery today, and I'm afraid he fell into a vat of Guiness and drowned. OH NO exclaimed little Hiram. Was'nt there anyone around to help him get out?? Oh yes said Medawisla (short for Steph),,,3 men jumped in to save him, but he bravely fought them all off!!!

    Sheesh! I just love a heart-warming story like this. And a true story, as well!

    That's one ale of a story, but being a stout man with a good head on his shoulders, it's not surprising.

    Gotta be careful Dave with that ethnic humor. . . it's not politically correct.

    Default Look Out Guys!

    I think this thread is a hoot, but a while back I made one comment in jest about folks from south of the Mason Dixon line and the "war of Northern Aggression" was re-incarnated. I'd definetly chime in as a pure 100% tabacknac Frenchman, but I have learned the lesson! I hope the ethnic police aren't lurking.

    "Ethnic police"?

    You still don't get it, do you? And you just can't let it go. The comment you make "in jest" can be just as offensive as one with an offensive intent. But I think you know that...

    I've been quiet in this thread - I'm not an "ethnic cop" as you may imply. But you made offensive remarks about my relatives and I spoke up. I'll do so again if you continue to feel the need to offer boorish comments.
