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."
