An Irishman finds a lamp. He rubs it and a Genie emerges.

The Genie tells him he will be granted three wishes. The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "First, give me a bottomless mug of ale."

A mug of ale appears in his hand. He sips it once, then again and the mug is magically refilled. The Irishman is thrilled and continues to drink. The mug never empties.

Then the Genie says, "And what about your other two wishes?"

The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "Give me two more just like this one!"

A Jew, a Hindu and an Irishman were travelling together and as the night fell they came to a little country inn. The innkeeper explained apologetically that only two beds were available in the inn but that he would be glad to make up a comfortable cot for the third man in the barn.

So the three drew straws, and it fell upon the Jew to sleep in the barn. In a few minutes there was a knock on the door, to which the innkeeper responded. "I'm sorry," explained the Jew, "but there is a pig in the barn and my religion forbids me to sleep under the same roof as a pig."

The Hindu had taken the next straw, and out he went. In a few minutes, there was another knock on the door, and the innkeeper opened the door on the Indian fellow. Apologizing gracefully, he explained that his religeous persuasion forbade him to share shelter with a cow, and there was indeed such a creature in the barn.

Finally, out went the Irishman. In a few minutes there was yet another knock on hte door, which the Innkeeper answered. On the porch stood the pig and the cow.
