30 British Telecom at a call centre were suspended when they were caught forwarding an email joke which poked fun at the Irish.
At the risk of me being suspended ('Begorra, does dat mean from the ceiling on the end of a rope?') here's the joke:

Two Irishmen, Paddy and Gerry, drive to the top of the Connor Pass, where Gerry looks down at the 1,000ft drop and says: "Dis looks like a grand place."
He takes two budgies out of a box, puts one on each shoulder and jumps off. Paddy watches the birds fly off and Gerry fall to the bottom, killing himself stone dead.
Looking down, Paddy shakes his head and says: "Stuff dat. Dis budgie jumping is too dangerous for me."
Moments later, Seamous arrives. He walks to the edge of the cliff carrying another box and a shotgun.
"Hi Paddy, watch dis," Seamus says. He lets a parrot out of the box, then throws himself over the edge of the cliff with the gun. Paddy watches as halfway down, Seamus takes the gun and shoots the parrot.
Seamus carries on plummeting until he hits the bottom and breaks every bone. Paddy shakes his head and says: "I'm never trying dat parrotshooting either!"
Paddy is just getting over the shock when Sean appears. Sean pulls a chicken out, takes it by the legs and hurls himself off the cliff. He falls until he hits a rock and breaks his spine.
Once more Paddy shakes his head., "Stuff dat, lads, First dere was Gerry budgie jumping, den Seamous parrotshooting. And now Sean and his hengliding.

Sure and begorra did yez like dat?

Yes, I thought it was quite amusing.
I might have thought it quite amusing but can't really comment (I'm a BT pensioner and need my money)
I'm Irish, and proud of it, and funny's funny. That's a good joke, but not as funny as the jobsworth that suspended 30 people over it, the idiot.
I'm Irish too. I thought it was rather funny. the jobsworth? No sense of humour, the English!
I work for BT, and they are seriously hot on their PC objectives - we get warned regularly about sending out dodgy mails, and people have been sacked for it.
Question Author
BT employees are not the only ones to send emails in employers' time.
A contact who works at a University often sends humorous emails to me. He doesn't wipe off the people in the Uni who have passed the emails from person to person. There can be up to ten or more, and I often wonder how much work is done by these people.
