This blog's purpose is to stay in touch with the ones I love, know, care about, and like to keep informed while I am in Dublin.

An Taoiseach

Even here in Ireland, I simply cannot avoid interfering with political issues. At least, I am more into consumption rather than taking action.
So, this one was passed around through corporate e-mail this morning:

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, "What are all those clocks?"
St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move."
"Oh," said the man, "whose clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."
"Incredible," said the man. "And whose clock is that one?"
St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Bertie Ahern's clock?" asked the man.
"His clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a fan."

remarks: Bertie Ahern (above picture, left) is the current Prime Minister (An Taoiseach, pronounce "an-ti-shack" ) of the Republic of Ireland, being involved in some (made up?) bribing scandal.
