Thurles Humour.

Thurles resident, Paddy Alphonsus Murphy, called to the Department of Social Protection at Thurles, Co. Tipperary; his business to apply for his entitlement to a State Old Age Pension.

The lady behind the counter asked him for his driver’s license, explaining that she wished to verify his age. He began to search his pockets, before coming to the realization that he must have left his wallet in another jacket pocket.

Swearing under his breath, he apologised, informing the female welfare officer that he was very sorry, but he seemed to have left his wallet at his home. “Sure listen”, said Paddy, “I will have to go home and come back later in the afternoon.”

The woman said, “Sir, please unbutton your shirt.”

Thinking it was some sort of required medical examination, Paddy, somewhat confused, complied; opening his shirt to reveal a chest covered in curly silver hair.

“That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me”, said the lady officer, as she began to process his application.

When Paddy eventually gets home, he informs his wife Marge about the mornings happenings at the Thurles Social Welfare Office.

When he was finished extolling the virtues of the welfare officer, Marge remarked, “You should have dropped your trousers, she might have included Disability Benefit with your pension claim as well.”
