A drunk staggers on board a bus in Ireland and asks the driver how long the trip is between Limerick and Cork.
“About 2 hours”, says the bus driver.
“Okay”,says the drunk, “then how long is the trip between Cork and Limerick?”
The irate bus driver says to the drunk, “It’s still about 2 hours drive man”.
“Why’d ya think there’d be a difference?”, the bus driver asked.
“Well”, says the drunk. “It’s only a week between Christmas and New Year’s, but it’s a helluva long time between New Year’s and Christmas!”
