Irish Math

There’s these four Irishmen in a bar, all drinking Guinness. One of them is looking rather puzzled, so another turns to him and asks him what’s the matter.

1st Irishman: Well, I was just trying to remember what 2 plus 2 is.

2nd Irishman: Oh, that’s easy, it’s 147.

1st Irishman: No no no, that can’t be right. How about you, Fergus, do you know what 2 plus 2 is?

3rd Irishman: Hmmm … could it be Wednesday, perhaps?

1st Irishman: No no no, that doesn’t sound right either. How about you Pat, do you know?

4th Irishman: Simple, the answer is 4.

1st Irishman: Of course! How did you work it out?!

4th Irishman: Aha, that”s where brains come in! I subtracted 147 from Wednesday!
