An Irishman named O'Malley went to his doctor after a long illness.The
> doctor after a lengthy examination, sighed and looked O'Malley in the
> eye and said, "I've some bad news for you. You have cancer, and it can't
> be cured. You'd best put your affairs in order."
>
> O'Malley was shocked and saddened. But, being a solid character, he
> managed to compose himself and walk from the doctor's office into the
> waiting room, where his son had been waiting. "Well son, we Irish
> celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don't go
> well. In this case, things aren't so well. I have cancer. Let's head to
> the pub and have a few pints." After 3 or 4 pints, or more, the two were
> feeling a little less somber. There were some laughs and some more
> beers.
>
> They were eventually approached by some of O'Malley's old friends, who
> were curious as to what the two were celebrating. O'Malley told them
> that the Irish celebrate the good as well as the bad. He went on to tell
> his friends that they were drinking to his impending end. He told his
> friends, "I have been diagnosed with AIDS." The friends gave O'Malley
> their condolences, and they had a couple of more beers.
>
> After the friends left, O'Malley's son leaned over and whispered his
> confusion. "Dad, I thought you told me that you were dying of cancer,
> and you just told your friends that you were dying of AIDS!" O'Malley
> said, "I don't want any of them sleeping with your mother after I'm
> gone."
>
> You gotta love the Irish.
