: Tall Tales from an Irishman in NYC! (Humor)

Tall Tales from an Irishman in NYC! (Humor)

O'Reilly was visiting New York City on a vacation from his home in Ireland.  He was enjoying himself, but seemed to be having problems with the traffic.

We he came to the crosswalk he would just stand there.  Other pedestrians were crossing back and forth, yet he just stood there.  

He would stand there patiently, as a traffic officer was waved the cars on.  Then the officer stopped the cars, and yelled pedestrians!  And everyone crossed.  

That would be everyone except O'Reilly.  He just stood there patiently.  

The police officer again stopped the car traffic and yelled, "Pedestrians!"  

Finally O'Reilly, loosing patience, shouted at the police officer, "Isn't it about time ye let the Catholics across!"

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
