Stars In Their Eyes.
Saturday night, and Matthew Kelly is presenting Stars In Their Eyes.
A young man in a wheelchair rolls on to the stage, and Matthew Kelly
introduces him as Simon.
very brave you
coming out here in your wheelchair -can you tell
the audience what happened?' Simon: 'About a year ago, I was driving with my uncle when we had a really
big accident. Unfortunately, my uncle was
killed outright, but I survived,
trapped in the car for 6 hours and had to be cut free. The doctors had me
in surgery for 12 hours, but they couldn't
save my legs.' MK: 'That's
terrible, but I see
you have legs now, are they artificial?' Simon: 'No, Matthew, whilst in hospital, the doctors advised me that the
uncle who had been in the car with me had passed away, but that his legs
and that with all the advances in medical science, they could
graft his legs onto my body. I have been having physiotherapy for 6
months, and I hope to be walking again by the end of the year.' Much
applause. MK: 'That's
fantastic. So, who are you going to be?' Simon: 'Tonight Matthew I will be... Simon and half-uncle!

The boss scratches
his head and asks 'How on earth does that make 99? 'Well, 'says Paddy, 'Each tree is dirty now! So dirty tree, 'n dirty tree, 'n dirty tree, makes nointynoin.'
The boss is getting worried that he may
have to hire a Dubliner after all so he thinks and says, 'Last question, same rules but this time make it 100.'
Paddy again thinks for a minute, then takes the picture and makes a small mark at the bottom of
Der ye arr!'
