At court a solicitor pleaded on behalf of a very well dressed farmer's son
who was accused of stealing. The Justice turned to the young man and complimented
him on his neat, well dressed appearance. Then he enquired of the young man as
to where he got the very nice shirt he was wearing. After some hesitation, the
young man replied that he had got them made locally, which was a lie. Expressing
surprise, the Justice asked: 'How many yards for a shirt like that?'
The young man replied: 'I got one in Murphy's yard and another in O'Sullivan's
yard last night.'
