John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, "Here's to spending the rest of
my life, between the legs of me wife!"
That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night!
He went home and told his wife, Mary, "I won the prize for the best
Toast of the night." She said, "Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?"
John said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church

at the pub with a toast about you, Mary."
She said, "Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know,
he's only been there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and
the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come."
