One day England and Ireland were kicking a football match in Ireland.

One day England and Ireland were kicking a football match in Ireland. Paddy the Irishman and George the Englishman, were up on a seventy foot wall, watching the game. George the Englishman would say that's a goal for England, but Ireland was getting nothing, then Paddy got wicked, and he stretched out his hands and pushed the Englishman off the seventy foot wall, and he said that's another for the Hospital.
