Any Last Words?


There was an Scotsman, an Englishman, and an Irishman, who were going to be executed by a firing squad.

On the day of the executions, they take the Scotsman outside. "Any last words?", they asked. He yelled "Earthquake!" and whilst the firing squad were running about in a panic, he climbed the wall and got away.

The Englishman, seeing this, thought he'd try it, so when his turn came. He shouted "Flood!", and similarly escaped in the ensuing confusion.

The Irishman thought this was a good plan so, when they asked him for his last words, he yelled "Fire!"
