Irish Joke of the Day – Escapee
A man escaped from a mental institution in Ballinasloe. He ran until he got to Mullingar, at which point he located a public phone and rang the hospital back in Ballinasloe.
“Hello?” says the receptionist.
“Eh, Hello,” says your man, “Can you tell me is there someone in room number 68?”
“One moment,” says the receptionist, setting down the phone. The man waited anxiously until he heard her returning to the phone. “No sir, I’m sorry – there’s nobody in room 68.”
“HOOORAY!!” he shrieked in delight, “I’VE ESCAPED!!!!”
Cheers to the seanchai for this one!
