Hugh Paxton’s Blog just got another Irish joke from Andre in Namibia. As usual its very funny. Though in this case I don’t see why it has to be an Irish joke. The nationality could be Australian, British, whatever – in fact its atmosphere is rather Namibian!
Here comes Andre’s input!
The judge says to a double-homicide defendant, "You’re charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer."
A voice at the back of the courtroom yells out, "You bastard!"
The judge says, "You’re also charged with beating your mother-in-law to death with a hammer."
The voice in the back of the courtroom yells out, "You rotten bastard!"
The judge stops and says to Paddy in the back of the courtroom. "Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at these crimes, but no more outbursts from you, or I’ll charge you with contempt. Is that understood?"
Paddy stands up and says, "Yes, I’m sorry, Your Honour, but for fifteen years I’ve lived next door to that arsehole, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he didn’t have one."
