"I'm from Ireland," replies the second man.

The first man responds: "You don't say! I'm from Ireland, too. Let's have another round to Ireland."

"Of course!" replies the second man.

Curious, the first man then asks, "Where in Ireland are you from?"

"Dublin," comes the reply.

"I can't believe it," says the first man. "I'm from Dublin, too! Lets have another drink to Dublin."

"Of course," replies the second man.

Curiosity again strikes and the first man asks: "What school did you go to?"

"Saint Mary's," replies the second man. "I graduated in `62."

"This is unbelievable!" the first man cries. "I went to Saint Mary's and I graduated in `62 also!"
