In the Blitz
The two Kerrymen were wending their way home from the pub in London's East
End. The Blitz was at its height with German bombers overhead every night.
"Tis a terrible time to be in London,' said Pat. 'With no defence against
the terrible air raids.'
'Sure it was, until now,' said Mick. 'Now of course they've found the answer.
That's it up in the sky -barrage balloons!'
Mick pointed to the massive inflated objects hovering over the city on guide
'You see,' he explained, 'the German planes come over and bump into the balloons
and are destroyed.'
'But surely,' argued Pat, 'when the planes hit them the balloons will burst.'
'Indeed not,' said Mick. 'You see, the balloons are full of concrete.'
