YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED that Ireland is going through a spell of rugby mania at the moment.

Maybe it’s because of a little something called the Rugby World Cup being on? It’s impossible to tell.

Over the past day or so, one joke has been doing the rounds on social media and is threatening to totally take over Irish Facebook and Twitter.

Judging by iRadio’s figures, we’d say it’s the most popular joke on Facebook right now.

And it’s being shared all over Twitter, too.

Seriously, it’s everywhere.

it's everywhere

Your aunty has probably sent it to your family Whatsapp group.

It was even recited on Morning Ireland today. (Although we don’t know if Des Cahill quite did it justice.)

Our advice? Don’t tell this joke in the pub tonight — your mates have probably heard it.
