“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Charles Dickens walks into a bar and orders a martini. The bartender asks, "Olive or twist?"

* * *

I was having a drink at a local Irish pub with my friend Sean when he spotted an attractive woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering his courage, he approached her and asked, "Would you mind if I chatted with ya' for a wee bit?"

She responded by yelling at the top of her lungs, "No, I won't come over to your place tonight!"

With everyone in the bar staring, Sean crept back to our table, puzzled and humiliated.

A few minutes later, the woman walked over to us and apologized.

"I'm sorry if I embarrassed you," she said, "but I'm a graduate student in psychology at Irish University and I'm studying human reaction to embarrassing situations."

At the top of his lungs Sean responded, "What do you mean, two hundred dollars?"
