Mick and Paddy’ s pal
Ray died in a fire and his body was burned pretty badly.
The morgue needed someone to identify the body, so they sent for his
two best friends, Mick and Paddy.
The three men had always done everything together.
Mick arrived first, and when the mortician pulled back the sheet Mick
said, ‘Yup, his face is burned up pretty bad. You better roll him
The mortician rolled him over and Mick said, 'Nope, ain’t Ray
The mortician thought this was rather strange.
So he brought Paddy in to confirm the identity of the body.
Paddy looked at the body and said, ‘Yup, he’s pretty well burnt up.
Roll him over.’
The mortician rolled him over and Paddy said, 'No, it ain’t Ray
The mortician asked, ‘How can you tell?’
Paddy said, ‘Well, Ray had two easrholes.’
‘What? He had two easrholes?’ asked the mortician.
'Yup, we never seen 'em, but everybody used to say:
There’s Ray with them two easrholes
