The Friday Groaner

My good buddy from across the pond, Jams O'Donnell sent this absolutely fabulous gem that appeals to my predeliction for things literary as well as delivering a truly outstanding and much-needed groooaaannn!!!!! I think y'all will love it, too!!!! Do stop by and visit Jams' excellent, witty blog where he holds forth on a variety of subjects from history and politics to his beloved cats.

In the days before the Celtic tiger was even a cub an Irishman came to London looking for work. He went to a building site where the Foreman told him that he could have a job if he could answer this one simple question, namely:

"What is the difference between a girder and a joist"

The Irishman looked the foreman in the face and said:

"That's simple. Girder wrote 'Faust' and Joist wrote 'Ulysses'!"


Happy Blogging!!!!!!!
