KILKENNY, IRELAND - The Irish are very serious - when it comes to humor. This was especially so for Shay Bradley of Ireland. He pre-recorded an audio message that was played during his funeral that had the mourners in both tears of sadness and tremendous laughter. 

From Hal Roach to so many more, you can be sure that at any time there are Irish eyes smiling somewhere in the world. It is also apparently  true in the afterworld, according to Bradley, who passed away October 8, 2019 and just couldn't let go.

You can listen to him try to get out of his own coffin. "Its dark in here!"
