There was a man in Courtnacuddy, which is about three miles from Enniscorthy, and he was very fond of meat, and he used to eat it everyday of the week, including Friday.

One day, Father Dunne, the parish priest, was passing this man's house, and he went in and found the man frying rashers, and he said, "Here you are again, frying meat on Friday."
"Look at all Our Lord suffered for you, on the Cross."
"O Begor," sez the man, "But where would you get another man like Him,"
