A Scotsman is sitting in a bar in Cuba and is minding his business when a man with a large black beard walks in. The man goes to the bar and orders a shot of rum. The bartender serves him, the man drinks the rum then starts walking out the door.

The man says, “Excuse me, Castro’s Army.”
The bartender says, “Alright then” and the man leaves.

The father of a teenage daughter was concerned with the amount of time she spent on the telephone; not so much for the time she wasted (he had given up on that long ago), but because nobody else could use the phone.

So, as a happy solution, he had a telephone installed for her with her own private number and directory listing.

Two or three days after her telephone had been installed, he came home to find her stretched out on the floor with her feet on the living room couch and chatting away on the family telephone. Her own telephone was resting silently on her dresser. “Why are you using our telephone,” he yelled. “Why aren’t you talking on your own telephone?”

“I can’t,” she said, “I’m expecting an important call on my phone.”

While making rounds, a doctor points out an X-ray to a group of medical students. “As you can see,” she says, “the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched.

Michael, what would you do in a case like this?” “Well,” ponders the student, “I suppose I’d limp too.”

One day an Irishman who had been stranded on a deserted island for over 10 years, saw a speck on the horizon. He thought to himself, “It’s certainly not a ship.” And, as the speck got closer and closer, he began to rule out the possibilities of a small boat and even a raft. Suddenly there emerged from the surf a wet-suited black clad figure. Putting aside the scuba gear and the top of the wet suit, there stood a drop-dead gorgeous blonde!

The glamorous blonde strode up to the stunned Irishman and said to him “Tell me, how long has it been since you’ve had a cigarette?” “Ten years,” replied the amazed Irishman. With that, she reached over and unzipped a waterproofed pocket on the left sleeve or her wet suit and pulled out a fresh pack of cigarettes. He takes one, lights it and takes a long drag. “Faith and begorrah,” said the man, “that is so good, I’d almost forgotten how great a smoke can be!”

“And how long has it been since you’ve had a drop of good Irish whiskey?” asked the blonde. Trembling, the castaway replied, “Ten years.” Hearing that, the blonde reaches over to her right sleeve unzips a pocket and removes a flask and hands it to him. He opened the flask and took a long drink. “‘Tis nectar of the gods!” stated the Irishman. “‘Tis truly fantastic!!!”

At this point the gorgeous blonde started to slowly unzip the long front of her wet suit, right down the middle. She looked at the trembling man and asked, “And how long has it been since you played around?” With tears in his eyes, the Irishman fell to his knees and sobbed, “Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Don’t tell me you’ve got golf clubs in there too!”
