The Mile Marker

Three Irishmen, Paddy, Sean and Shamus, were stumbling home late one night and found themselves on the road which led past the old graveyard. 'Come have a look over here', says Paddy, 'It's Michael O'Grady's grave, God bless his soul, he lived to the ripe old age of 87.' 'That's nothing', says Sean, 'here's one named Patrick O'Toole. It says here that he was 95 when he died.' Just then, Shamus yells out, 'But here's a fella that died when he was 145 years old!' 'What was his name?' asks Paddy. Shamus lights a match to see what else is written on the stone marker, and exclaims, 'Miles from Dublin.'
