Spunk. . . .

A 94 year old Irishman gathered his clan together and began to speak.   “You know I’ve been a lost and lonely man since your mother passed away.  But I’ve met a young lass, she’s 23 years old, and we’ve decided to get married.” 

The children – stunned – quickly huddled.  After a few minutes, the eldest son stepped forward.  “Father.  We know that you’ve been a lost and lonely man since mother passed on.  But the idea of marrying a 23 year old girl.  We are concerned since we feel that this could be fatal.” 

The father looked up and frowned “Well if she dies, she dies.”
