 Well, we in the colonies used to enjoy that type of joke, but
 over the years have managed to hyper-sensitize just about all
 ethnic groups, such that you put your health - physical or
 financial - in jeopardy if you tell one. It tends to bring out
 dirty looks, unfriendly comments or the "everyone is picking on
 me" society - aka: American Civil Liberties Union - which can get
 expensive in keeping some lawyer well off.

Don't be such a prude Don, here in the internal colonies we enjoy a good
Irish joke as much as anyone,
Here's my favourite :

Why are Irish jokes so stupid ?

- so the English can understand them !

The funny thing is when I tell my joke after a lot of other Irish jokes , a
lot of people don't seem to appreciate it .
Funny huh ?
The joke that dare not speak it's name.
