As only the Irish can tell a story!!!!!

Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.
It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been
able to walk on water on their 18th birthday.
On that special day, they'd each walked across the lake to the pub on the
far side for their first legal drink.
So when Paddy's 18th birthday came around, he and his pal Mick, took a boat
out to the middle of the lake, Paddy, stepped out of the boat...and nearly
drowned!  Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.
Furious and confused, Paddy went to see his grandmother .
"Grandma," he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk across the
lake like me father, his father and his father before him?"
Granny looked deeply into Paddy's, troubled blue eyes and said, "Because ye
father, ye grandfather and ye great-grandfather were all born in December,
when the lake is frozen,and ye were born in August, ya fookin idiot!"
Thanks Pat
