Mick and Seamus staggered out of a bar in Limerick. They sat on a bench to get their bearings
Seamus, in a philosophical mood, said to Mick, 'Which do you think is farther away - Dublin or the moon?'
Mike thinks for a full minute and says, 'It must be Dublin. I can see the moon up there, but I've looked around and I cannot see Dublin anywhere'.
The next night, Mick and Seamus staggered out of a pub. Mick said to Seamus, 'What a beautiful night. Look at the moon.'
Seamus stops and looks at Mick. He says, 'You are wrong, that's not the moon, that's the sun.'
They start arguing for a while. Then a third Irishman staggers out of the pub. They stop him and ask, 'Sir, could you please help settle our argument? Tell us what that thing is up in the sky that's shining. Is it the moon or the sun?'
The stranger looks at the sky and then looks at them, and says, 'Sorry, I don't live around here.'
I don't know if there are men on the moon, but if there are they must be using the earth as their lunatic asylum - George Bernard Shaw
