Humor about Irish Pubs
(Setting the scene, Ballymun outside of Dublin has a reputation as a rough spot) Fifteen minutes into Aer Lingus Flight EI109 from Madrid to Dublin the Plane encounters a serious problem with the Instrument landing systems. In a Fit of Panic, Paddy the Pilot turns to his co- Pilot and says. " Jazus Mick…Well have to turn back…none of the equipment is working!. " Mick says to Paddy; " No Problem…Sure I can tell where we are by sticking my hand out the Window! " OK! " says Paddy, " Where are we then? " Mick winds down the window and sticks his hand out and replies; " Well Paddy, I reckon were over the Bay of Biscay. The humidity seems to be gone out of the air. This is caused by the seawater. Just Head North" " Brilliant! " replies Paddy, and precedes north bound. Fifteen Minutes later Paddy asks: " Where are we now Mick? " Mick winds down the window and sticks his hand out and replies; " Were over the English Channel now. The air is much cooler here. Just head in a north easterly direction. " Thirty minutes Later Paddy asks: " Where are we now Mick? " Mick winds down the window and sticks his hand out and replies; " Were over the Ballymun flats. Quick…Bank left here and you should be on Course for Runway One. Paddy, Responds and 5 minutes later the plane lands safely on Runway One. Paddy turns to Mick and says: " That was Brilliant…But…Tell Me. How did you know we were over the Ballymun Flats". " Well! " said Mick…When I pulled my hand back in.. My Watch was Gone! "
