HOW TO SAY CHEERS IN GAELIC!
Sláinte (SLAHN-chə) is a word literally translating as “health”[ and is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland and Scotland.
An Irishman walks into a bar and orders two pints of beer. The bartender says he can only serve drinks one at a time.
The Irishman replies “See, here’s the thing. I grew up on a farm in Ireland with my brother, and every day after we were done working we’d go to the pub for a pint together. One day our father passed away and left us the farm, but it wasn’t big enough to support both of us and our families, so we decided that since I was the younger brother I’d go to America to seek my fame and fortune. However we also agreed that at the end of the day we’d go into the local pub and each have two pints, one for us and one for our brother across the pond.”
The bartender decides to go ahead and serve him the two pints. The Irishman drinks them both, pays and leaves. This goes on for a while until one day the Irishman comes in and orders a single pint.
The bartender brings him the pint and asks “Is your brother OK?”
The Irishman replies “Oh, my brother’s fine. I just quit drinking.”
