Irishman Cillian Murphy known to his friends as Silly was invited to go to visit his relatives in New York.
Silly started by phoning the enquiries desk at Dublin Airport asking the girl "How long does it take to fly from Dublin to New York". The girl paused for a second and said "Just a minute". "Fantastic" said Silly who then hung up the phone.
Later Silly went out his house looking for the taxi he ordered to take him to the airport when he saw an old lady at the kerb. "Can you see me across the road" she said. "Hold on and I will go across and see" said Silly.
At Dublin Airport Silly was going through security when he was asked "why are you not wearing any shoes" He replied "My wife told me to make sure I wore a clean pair off socks every day for a week,but when it got to Saturday I could not get me shoes on".
In the departure lounge Silly was approached by a man who was completely bald who said "Hi silly do you not remember me from School" Silly looked at him saying "There wasn't anybody bald in my class".
Silly eventually got to New York but was detained because during the flight he kept saying his grandfathers initials were IRA.
