THE FIRST OLYMPICS JOKE ?
It's 2012 and it's the Olympics in London . . .
A Scotsman, an Englishman and an Irishman want to get in,
but they haven't got tickets.
The Scotsman picks up a manhole-cover, tucks it under his arm
and walks to the gate.
"McTavish, Scotland ," he says, "Discus," and in he walks.
The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it
over his shoulder.
"Waddington-Smythe, England ," he says, "Pole vault," and in he walks.
The Irishman looks around, picks up a roll of barbed wire and
tucks it under his arm.
"O'Malley, Ireland " he says, "Fencing."
