The two began yet another session of bickering about which of them was the favourite son and it was getting into full flow when they were invited, by Mr Cobbler, into the office.
After a few preliminaries, including the disposal of a few small items to the cousins and old friends, the important bit came: who would inherit the farm, Tony or Luke?
So he started calling his kids after something around his farm.
'O'Brien the farmer: 'When the Garda arrived, he went over to my horse, who had a broken leg, and shot him. Tim replied, 'You ought to come and eat with us, we put ice-cream on our strawberries.' Sally was in the Fox and Hounds at Newbridge last Saturday night, when this really ugly looking guy walked into the bar. 'He went into town.' 'Well, then,' inquired Barry, 'is yer Mom here? She went into town with Dad.' 'How about your brother? ' 'He went with Mom and Dad,' explained Neil patiently. 'I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one.I'll make you some money because I can still run.' Paul thought to himself, 'Wow, a talking horse.' Dollar signs started appearing in his head.So he runs to the house and the old rancher is sitting on the porch.Then he went over to Darcy, my dog, who was badly hurt, and shot him. She told me later: "The wierdo came over to the bar and pinched my bum. Barry Farmer stood there for a few seconds, shifting from one foot to the other and muttering to himself. Or maybe I could take a message fer Dad.' 'Well, it's difficult,' answered Barry uncomfortably, 'I really wanted to talk to yer Dad.When he asked me how I felt, I just thought under the circumstances, it was a wise choice of words to say I've never felt better in my life.' Farmer Evans was driving his John Deere tractor along the road with a trailer load of fertilizer. Then he had the nerve to demand, ' Give me your number, sexy.'" I replied, "Have you got a pen? It's about your brother getting my daughter pregnant.' Neil considered for a moment, 'You would have to talk to Pa about that,' he finally conceded.
