The Male of a Cow - An Anthology of Traditional Irish Humour
Teacher: "What is the male of a cow?"
The comic spirit of Ireland dances in the pages of this deightful anthology. Very much not just another collection of "Irish jokes", it presents a wide range of authentic Irish humour. In the first part, the anatomy of the famous "Irish Bull" is laid bare for the first time. The second part explores the rich range of humour, past and present, of a nation "always at odds with Matter".
Drawing from the oral tradition and from classic authors, this splendidly entertaining collection shows how, even in the era of the "global village", Irish humour remains distinctive and preserves a true sense of the comedy of life.
