Mick, a Kerryman, comes out of his bedroom, bent like an old man. His wife
Betty is worried and asks him: "What's wrong with you? Have you any pain?'
'No,' he said, 'there is nothing wrong with me, but I can't stand straight.'
'Good Lord,' says his wife, 'I hope it's nothing serious, go and see a doctor
When Mick came home walking properly, he said, 'it's wonderful what such a man
can do. The doctor just looked at me and knew that when I got up I fastened the
underpants on the collar-button.'
