Day 4 - First Monday

A cop pulls up two Irish drunks, and says to the first, "What's your name and address?"
            "I'm Paddy O'Day, of no fixed address."
            The cop turns to the second drunk and asks the same question.
            "I'm Seamus O'Toole, and I live in the flat above."


O'Toole volunteered to take care of his numerous children so that Mom could have an evening out.  At bedtime he sent the youngsters upstairs to bed and settled down to read.  One child kept creeping down the stairs, but O'Toole kept sending him back up. 
            At 10 o'clock the doorbell rang.  It was the next door neighbor, Mrs. O'Brien.  She asked if her son was there and O'Toole said no.  Just then a little head appeared over the banister and a voice shouted.  "I'm here Mom, but he won't let me go home."


Father Murphy met Casey in the street and Casey admired his new umbrella. 
            Father Murphy said, "Thank you, but I'm not sure I got it honestly.  It started to rain the other day, and I stepped into a doorway to wait until it stopped.  Then I saw a young fellow coming along with a nice large umbrella, and I thought that if he was going as far as my house, I'd ask him to share it with me.  I stepped out from the doorway and said, 'Where are you going with that umbrella?' And he dropped the darned thing and ran."
