An Irishman went to a
library and asked the librarian if he could recommend any plays for him to read.
"How about Shaw?" said the librarian. "I'll give him a try,"
answered the Irishman, so the librarian handed him The
Complete Plays of George Bernard Shaw. Next day he returned saying he
had finished the book and had enjoyed it very much. "Do you have any more
plays by the same author?" he enquired. For a joke, the librarian gave him
a telephone directory to take home, and when the Irishman returned two days
later the librarian asked him if he had enjoyed it. "Well," said the
Irishman, "I didn't think much of the plot, but what a cast!"
