For some reason SK + soda machine came up with Tommyknockers for me, but it has been a while since I read any of his stuff, so don't quote me.

An early entry in the file from a shopkeeper and farmer in County Kerry in the southwest of the country in 1947 says he told police he saw a circular object moving "faster than a motor car" through the sky.

He was either drunk or had the consumption.

Yes, Tommyknockers had the 'evil green force' animating and levitating a soda machine to go kill people. I never read the book, myself, but I know that it was in there. Also, 'green' is the color of evil in all SK novels. Particularly if it glows.

I'm not too sure about the pancakes, however.

IRISH JOKES!!

Two drunken paddies are staggering home and wander into a grave yard. For kicks, they try to find the oldest person buried there. After a little while one shouts "Hey Seamus, dis guy wuz 95!". As he turns to look at his friend, Seamus stumbles over an old milestone at the roadside. He looks at it and screams: "Dat's nothin' Sean! This guy was 250!"
"JesusMaryandJoseph!", says Sean, "What was his name?"
"Miles from Dublin!" says Seamus.

IRISH GAS STATION

Taking a wee break from the golf course,
Tiger Woods drives his new Mercedes into an Irish gas station.
An attendant greets him in typical Irish manner,
unaware who the golf pro is... "Top o' the mornin to ya".

As Tiger gets out of the car, two tees fall out of
his pocket. "So what are those things, laddie?" asks the
attendant. "They're called tees," replies Tiger.
"And what would ya be usin 'em for, now?" inquires
the Irishman."Well, they're for resting my balls on when I
drive," replies Tiger.

"Aw, Jaysus, Mary an' Joseph!" exclaims the Irish
attendant. "Those fellas at Mercedes think of everything..."

You're absolutely right. I think we Irish-Americans should make every effort to become as humorless, embittered, litigious and hypersensitive as other ethnic groups.

Whiskey is a breakfast food in Ireland? Jesus Christ, if you're going to be making sweeping statements like that you might as well say something as offensive like "Kentucky Fried Chicken followed by watermelon is lunch food in Africa."

Ya, and don't forget the Boston Celtics and their racist, derogatory Uncle Tommish leprauchan logo. No Redskins, none of the Wee Folk either. Begorra.


Oh, the article: "it found that none of the recorded incidents in the last 30 years was actually a flying saucer."

The coverup continues.

Ok, now that's just saying us Irish are stupid, which I really don't appreciate. The joke doesn't even make sense either since there's a golf course in just about every town on the island.

Hi, you must be NewHere.

We make sweeping generalizations at Fark, in case you didn't know. I have been to Ireland and they do, in fact, serve whisky for breakfast. I have not been to Africa, but I am willing to guess your average African has not even heard of KFC or watermelon.

for the most part I honestly don't give a crap. I love racial/ethnic humor regardless of whoever it's about I only made my comment because of how quickly what Jesse Jackson said was swept under the rug.

Now if you don't mind my German/Irish ass will be going back to my beer and playing with my EZBake-a-Jew oven.

As an Irishman, I have to say that I find most jokes about the Irish to be in reasonably good taste and, though often predictable and unwitty, not in the least offensive.

I see no reason whatsoever to be a whiny little biatch about a crack about drinking whiskey in the morning, this even moreso because I've enjoyed a "breakfast of champions" on quite a few occasions in the past.

Too many groups of people take offence allready, let's not become one of them.
