A Story about an Englishman

Milltown, Tuam, Co. Galway

One day an Englishman was at a great show in China. The show lasted for six hours. When the show was over he went into a hotel for dinner. He got his dinner. When he had his dinner taken he spoke to the waitress of the beautiful meat he had for his dinner. But the waitress laughed because she knew well that if the Englishman knew that it was horseflesh he would not have eaten it, for it was horseflesh he had for his dinner. But as the old saying goes. “Hunger is a good sauce”.
