The O'Leary's emigrated to the US to give their child a better chance at life. Once settled, they enrolled their son in the first grade at the neighborhood elementary school.

The first day, the boy ran home and said, "Da! You're going to be so proud of me, Da. I'm the only one in my whole class that knows me numbers from one to ten!"

The boy's father said, "Sure and I'm proud of you boy! And do you know why you're so smart?"

The boy asked "Why, Da? Why?"

The very next day, the boy ran into the house and shouted, "Da! Da! I'm also the only one in my class who knows me letters from A to Zed. Are you proud of me, Da?"

"I'm really proudof you boy. And remember, it's because you're Irish that you're so smart!"

The third day, the boy came home and said "Da. We all went to the bathroom at school today and I looked to me left, then looked to me right and, Da, they are all so small and I'm so big! Is it because I'm Irish, is it, Da?"

His father replied, "For God's sake lad, it's not because you're Irish; it's because you're 18 years old!"
