Bert's Joke of The Month

IRISH HUMOR (Bert's Favorite)

After 10 years, the wife starts to think their kid  looks kinda strange so she decides to do a DNA test.  She finds out that the kid is actually from completely different  parents.

Wife: Honey, I have something very serious to tell you.
Husband: What's up?
Wife: According to DNA test results, this is not our kid...
Husband: Well you don't remember, do you??? When we were leaving the
hospital, you noticed that our baby had pooped, then you said: "Please go
change the baby, I'll wait for you here. " So I went inside, got a clean one  and left the dirty one there."
 
Moral: Never give a man a job for 
which he is not qualified.
**************
Paddy was driving home, drunk as a skunk, suddenly he has to swerve  to avoid a tree, then another, then another. A cop car pulls him over as  he veers about all over the road. Paddy tells the cop about all the  trees in the road. 

Cop says "For God's sake Paddy, that's your air freshener swinging about!"
