Who'd be a chemist

   Irish Sugar Test


One  day an Irishman goes into a pharmacy shop, reaches into his pocket and takes  out a small bottle and a teaspoon.  He pours some liquid onto the  teaspoon and offers it to the chemist.


"Could you taste this for me, please?"


The  chemist takes the teaspoon, puts it in his mouth, swills the liquid around  and swallows it.


"Does that taste sweet to you?" says Paddy.

"No, not at all," says the chemist.


"Oh  that's a relief," says Paddy. "The doctor told me to come here and get my  urine tested for sugar."
