An Assault at Arms (1874)

At the Olympics in London, a Scotsman, an Englishman and an Irishman want to get in, but they haven’t got tickets.

The Scotsman picks up a manhole cover, tucks it under his arm and walks to the gate. “McTavish, Scotland”, he says, “Discus” and in he walks.

The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it over his shoulder. “Waddington, England” he says, “Pole vault” and in he walks.

The Irishman looks around and picks up a roll of barbed wire and tucks it under his arm. “O’Malley, Ireland” he says, “Fencing.”
