John O’Reiley hoisted his beer and said: ”Here’s to spending the rest of me life between the legs of me wife!”
And that won him 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 ya now?… and what was yer toast?” John said, “Here’s to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife.”

“Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!” Mary said.

The next day, Mary ran into one of John’s drinking buddies on a street corner. The man chuckled leeringly and said, “John won the prize last night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary.”

Mary said, “Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised meself. 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.”
