Synopsis

A celebration of the three Paddies ...What were the first jokes you ever heard as a child? There is a good chance that they were ones about Paddy the Englishman, Paddy the Irishman and Paddy the Scotsman. Paddy the Englishman, Paddy the Irishman and Paddy the Scotsman took up a collection for their church and the problem arose as to how much they should give to the church. 'I draw the line on the ground', said Paddy the Scotsman, 'and I too throw all the money up in the air. What falls outside the circle I keep for myself and what falls inside the circle I give to the church'. 'I draw a circle on the ground', said Paddy the Scotsman, 'and I too throw all the money up in the air. What falls outside the circle I keep for myself and what falls inside the circle I give to the church.' 'I just throw all the money up in the air', said Paddy the Irishman, 'and what God doesn't want He throws down again.'
