64.Woo Woo!

I promised jocular but you're getting banal! I aim for variety. Once again, not my original story, just my versification. (As my friends know, I'm too much of a lady to imagine anything like this!)


An Irishman went out one day with Native Yanky mates.
He had travelled all the way from Cork to see the United States.
And as they were walking past a cave a voice called out 'Woo woo!'
And one American said 'Now watch! Here's what you have to do!'
He quickly stripped off all his clothes and into the cave he dived!
And joyous sounds soon heralded the fact that he'd arrived!
When he emerged, he wore a grin but the Irishman looked perplexed,
He couldn't wait to learn the facts. But look what happened next!
The trio arrived at another cave and a loud 'Woo woo!' rang out.
American number two stripped-off, giving a joyful shout!
He dived into the second cave with cries of jubilation!
When he emerged his Irish friend demanded an explanation.
'Well, it's like this' he was informed, 'The signal is 'Woo woo!'
It means a beautiful maiden's waiting in the cave for you.
It's a neat little local custom that all of us enjoy,
A little variation on that boring 'girl meets boy.
'Aha!' the Irishman declared, 'The next cave will be mine!
I rather like the United States. The customs suit me fine!'
Cave number three soon came in sight; the Irishman prepared,
Divesting himself of everything while his new-found friends just stared.
And, sure enough, 'Woo woo!' rang out and then once more 'Woo woo!'
And he dived into the darkness knowing he was right on cue.

In the next morning's paper the headline made it plain.....
'Naked Irishman in tunnel, killed by speeding train.'
