Irish humour… bargains

Everyone loves a good bargain – getting top quality gifts at unbeatable prices. The trouble is they’re often too good to be true, and we find out to late that cheap isn’t always the same as value for money.
Of course, there are different kinds of bargains. There’s the quality product with a low price, there’s also the arrangement we come to with another person when we want something, and there’s also the process of negotiating to reach a deal.
All three shed a light on human nature and provide for a rich vein of humour. These are some of our favourite bargain jokes… bargains meaning value for money, bargains with friends and even attempted bargains with God.
