The 1200 year old Irish Joke:

So it seems that the Christian Philosopher John Scotus Eriugena (John the Irishman) was after havin' a bit of drink with Emperor Charles the Bald one day….

When up says the Emperor if you please:

"Tell me John, What separates the Irishman from a fool?"

…and don't you know John Scotus says to the emperor bold as you please:

"Only the table Charles me boy, only the table."
