Irish Birth Control

     Mrs. Donovan was walking  down 

O'Connell  Street in Dublin when 

she  met up with Father Flaherty. 

The  Father said, 'Top o' the mornin' 

To  ye! Aren't ye Mrs. Donovan 

And  didn't I marry ye and yer 

Hoosband  two years ago?'   

She  replied, 'Aye, that ye did, Father.' 

The  Father asked, 'And be there 

Any  wee little ones yet?' 

She  replied, 'No, not yet, Father.'  

The  Father said, 'Well now, 

I'm  going to Rome next week 

And  I'll light a fertility candle for ye 

And  yer hoosband.'  

She  replied, 'Oh, thank ye, Father.' 

They then parted ways.  

Some  years later they met again. 

The  Father asked, 'Well now, 

Mrs.  Donovan, how are ye these days?' 

She  replied, 'Oh, very well, Father!' 

The  Father asked, 'And tell me , 

Have  ye any wee ones yet?' 

She  replied, 'Oh yes, Father! 

Two  sets of twins and six singles, 

Ten  in all!'  

The  Father said, 'That's wonderful! 

And  how is yer loving hoosband doing?' 

She  replied, 'E's gone to Rome 

to  blow out yer dooom'd candle.'
