An Irish daughter had not been home for more than five years. Upon her return, her father cursed her heavily.

"Where have ye been all this time child?" the father asked. "Why did ye not write to us, not even a line? Why didn't ye call?

"Can ye not understand what ye put yer old mother through?"

The daughter, crying, replied:

"Papa, I became a prostitue."

"Ye what," the father said. "Get outta here, ye shameless harlot. Sinner! "You're a disgrace to this Catholic family."

"Ok Papa. As ye wish. I only came back to give Mum this luxurious fur coat, title deed to a 10-bedroom mansion, plus a $5 Million savings certificate.

"For me little brother, this gold Rolex. And fer ye Papa, there's a sparkling new Mercedes convertible parked outside. Plus a membership to the country club and an invitation for ye all to spend New Year's Eve on me new yacht in the Riveria."

Shocked, the father replied:

"A prostitute? My goodness, you scared me half to death. I thought you said Protestant!

"Come here and give you're old Papa a hug.

that story trivializes prostiution :-(
It's worse than that. This isn't an "Irish" joke trivializing prostitution. It's an English joke mocking the Irish at the expense of prostitution. The lesson is that we should probably stick to narratives regarding tent trailers in this forum.

I’ve been stewing on it… finally sent a pm to Steve… this board really should be stricken. This is a camping forum. There should be no comradery… no laughter… no silliness! Camping is serious business!! From now on, I want only black and white facts (can I say that??)… printed from people far smarter than the rest of us.
