Irish Rose Joke

funny irishman acting rose joke

Paddy had not done any acting in a long time, and was thrilled have been given an opportunity in a local production.   The director said to him, "This is the most important part, and it has only one line. You walk on to the stage carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose, delicately, with just one finger and thumb, sniff the rose deeply, and then say the line: 'Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.' "

Paddy practised his line and the director's instructions all day long, over and over again, until finally, the time came.  The curtain went up, Paddy walked on to the stage and said his line, "Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress."  The theatre erupted with laughter, and the surprised Irishman gave an impromptu bow as he walked off the stage. 

The director was livid.  "You bloody fool!" he screamed. "You have ruined me!"

"What happened?" said Paddy, bewildered. "Did I forget my line?"

"No!" shouted the director. “You forgot the rose!"
