Bologna Two Irishmen and a Hebrew once went out for recreation. They took enough provisions along to spend a week's vacation. But they got lost out in the woods. The nights grew dark and lonely 'Till last of all of their food ran out, except a piece of bologna. Now one of them said as he picked up a knife, ``There's no use in us carvin' for there's not enough nutrition in here, To keep us all from starvin'. so I suggest we go to bed, And tomorrow,'' said Mahoney, ``Whoever has the nicest dream, Will win the piece of bologna.'' The following morning when they awoke, a quarter after seven, The first one said, ``I had a dream, I died and went to Heaven. Saint Peter met me at the gate, he said `Hello, Mahoney,' I don't think you can beat that dream. I win the bologna.'' The next one said, ``I had a dream too, and mine was a world-beater. I also died and went to heaven, welcomed by Saint Peter. He rushed to me, held out his hand, he said `Hello, Maloney,' I don't think you can beat that dream, I win the bologna.'' The Hebrew said, ``I'm dreamin' too, a dream that couldn't be sweeter. I saw you both go up to Heaven, welcomed by Saint Peter. I waited and waited and waited some more, and oh, I got so lonely, I thought you was not coming back, so I got up and ate the bologna!'' BR
