Three English men were in a bar and spotted an Irish man. One of the guys said he was going to bug him.

He walked over to the Irish man and tapped him on the shoulder. “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a real tosser.”

“Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”

Puzzled, the English man walked back to his buddies. “I told him St. Patrick was a tosser and he didn’t care!”

“You just don’t know how to set him off. Watch and learn.”

The second English man walked over and tapped the Irish man on the shoulder. “I hear your St. Patrick was a wanker!”

“Oh, wow, I didn’t know that, thank you.”


Shocked beyond belief, the English man went back to his buddies. “You are right, he is unshakable!”

The third English man said: “No, no, no, I will really bug him, you just watch.”

The English man walked over to the Irish man, tapped him on the shoulder and said: “I hear your St. Patrick was an Englishman!”

“Yeah, that’s what your buddies were trying to tell me.”

EDIT: This joke initially was written with the offensive comments stating that St. Patrick was a “sissy” and a “transvestite.” This joke was found online and I thought the overall arc of the joke was funny (thus I shared it).


I did not realize how offensive the words above might be to the LGBTQ+ community as some of the comments below indicate. Therefore, I changed some of the words in the joke and made them more English; thus, making the joke less offensive and more apropos. I apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for my short-sightedness.

EDIT #2: TIL that St. Patrick was actually Welsh. Thank you fellow Redditors for the clarification.
