Tag: irish jokes one digging a hole and one filling it joke

One of my favourite Irish jokes

Two paddies were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in.

They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day
without rest, one man digging a hole, the other filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, “I’m impressed by the effort you two are putting into your work, but I don’t get it – why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed, ” Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we’re normally a three-person

But today the lad who plants the trees called in sick.
