Languishing Lunches

An Irishman, a Mexican and a redneck were at work on the scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.

As they ate their lunches, the Irishman said, “Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef one more time for lunch, I’m going to jump off this building.”

The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, “Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time for lunch, I am going to jump off too.”

The redneck opened his lunch and said, “Bologna again. If I get a bologna sandwich one more time I’m jumping off too!”

The next day the Irishman opened his lunchbox, saw the corned beef and cabbage, and jumped off the building.

The Mexican opened his lunch box, saw the burritos, and jumped off too.

The redneck opened his lunchbox and saw bologna, so he jumped to his death as well.

At the funeral, the Irishman’s wife wept and said, “If I had known he was tired of corned beef and cabbage I would have never given it to him again!”.

The Mexican’s wife also cried and said, “I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn’t realize he hated burritos so much.”

Just then, everyone turned and stared at the redneck’s wife.

“Hey, don’t look at me” she said, “He made his own lunch!”
