    Funny Stories.
    There was an Irish man one time in England, and he met a parson, a priest, and a minster. When the three people saw the Irish man coming they thought they would have a great laugh. Well, said the parson to Paddy if the devil came which of the three of us would he take. Well, said Paddy he would take the priest. Then the parson what about the minster. Paddy said he would take in too. Then the parson said what about me.
    Then Paddy said he is sure of you anytime.
