It was late evening in a pub in County Cork in Ireland and the regulars were all toasting each other, Ireland and just about anything they could think of, all trying to come up with the best toast of the night.
Paddy O’Reilly raised his glass of Guinness in the air and said, “Here’s to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wife!”
Well, everybody cheered and it’s probably no surprise that this toast won him the top prize for the best toast of the night at the local pub!
So Paddy went home and told his wife what had happened.
“Guess what Siobhan”, he said to his wife, “I won the prize for the best toast of the night”.
“Is that right Paddy”, she said, “what was your toast then?”
Paddy replied, “I said, here’s to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife”.
“Oh that is really very nice Paddy”, his wife replied.
So, the next day, Siobhan was out shopping when she bumped into one of Paddy’s toasting buddies.
The man couldn’t stop chuckling and said to her, “Paddy won the prize the other night, with a toast about you, Siobhan”.
Siobhan replied, “I know, he told me and I was a bit surprised if you ask me! Do you know, he’s only been there twice! Once he fell asleep and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come”.
