Two Englishmen, who were travelling along Shropshire, wanted to know the way to Shrewsbury.
They happened to see an Irishman in the distance, so one said to the other: “Coma and we’ll make fun of Paddy and ask him the way.”
When the Irishman came up one of them said to him: “Aye, Paddy, could you tell me the way to Shrewsbury?”
Paddy, indignant at being called that name, asked “How did you know my name was Paddy?”
Englishman: “Oh, I guessed it.”
“Well, guess the way to Shrewsbury,” said Paddy.
