Friday Funny

Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.
 
It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been
able to walk on water on their 18th birthday.
 


On that special day, they'd each walked across the lake to the pub on the far
 side for  their first legal drink.
 


So when Paddy's 18th birthday came around, he and his pal Mick, took
 a boat out to the  middle of the lake, Paddy stepped out of the
boat ....and nearly drowned!
 

Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.
 


Furious and confused, Paddy went to see his grandmother ..
 


"Grandma,"   he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk across
 the lake  like me father, his father and his father before him?"


Granny looked deeply into Paddy's, troubled blue eyes and said,
 
"Because ye father, ye grandfather and ye great-grandfather....


were all born in December, when the lake is frozen, and ye were born in
 August, ya fookin idiot!"
