Irish Milk              Back to Jokes  /  Back Home

Thanks to Lisa for sending this one!

The 98-year-old Mother Superior from Ireland was dying. 
 
The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey 
comfortable. They tried giving her some warm milk to drink 
but she refused it. 
 
One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen and 
remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey received as a gift the 
previous Christmas, she opened it and poured a 
generous amount into the warm milk. 
 
Back at Mother Superior's bedside, she held the glass to her 
lips. Mother drank a little, then a little more and before 
they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop. 
 
"Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "please give us a word of 
wisdom before you die." 
 
Struggling, she raised herself up and said, "Do not sell that cow."
