What is it a man does not like to have, and after all does not like to loose it? A bald head.

Old mother Tinkle had but one eye,
And a long tail which she used to let fly. And every time she went out in a gap, She left a bit of her tail in a trap.
Ans.- A needle and thread.
What is the strongest animal in the world?
Ans- A snail, because he can carry his house on his back.

As I went out a boreen,
I met my aunty Noreen.
She had iron toes and a wooden nose and pon my word,
She would frighten the crows.
Ans:- A gun.
